“A-List is a fantastic company. Their service is highly professional and they treat each student as an individual. Their tutors are very skilled and well trained. Austin worked with our son for ACT Prep. He did a great job of helping him address his weak spots and keeping him on track with studying. Ethan loved working with him and his score went up 9 points from the first practice test he took! Also, having the ability to take practice tests at their center was definitely a plus. I have recommended A-list to many of my friends, and would definitely use them again.”
–Mother of Ethan Z. (Columbia Prep, 2017)
I think A-List is a great organization. My tutor was positive and tailored the material to my learning style. She made learning each subject fun and presented new topics in an engaging fashion. Thank you so much to A-List for helping me achieve my personal best!
A-List gave me more than just practice tests and test-taking tips, though these were invaluable. My tutor connected with me on a personal level and helped me understand that I was capable of getting the score I wanted. Suddenly, I viewed my test-taking experience as a challenge, not a burden. I walked into my ACT with the confidence that I knew exactly how to conquer every aspect of the test.”

Both my children had an amazing experience with A-List! Steadily, she worked hard to improve her test scores. Taking the practice tests allowed her to gain confidence and learn to manage her time during the tests. Then a college advisor helped her write her college essays. She was an amazing guide who helped Phoebe focus and streamline her supplements and essays. Now she will be attending her dream college, Rice University, School of Architecture!
