Courtney is a graduate of Georgetown University and a native of Long Island’s North Shore. She grew up competing in Long Island’s rigorous horse show circuit and renewed her verve for competition upon returning to New York after college. Courtney is a lifelong writer with many publications to her credit, most notably the short piece “Uncle Ayman’s Hot Dog Stand,” which appears in the W.W. Norton Anthology Lost and Found: Stories from New York. The piece is reviewed by New York Magazine, among others. Courtney graduated from Georgetown with an M.A. in British Literature, for which she focused on gender studies in texts from the Early Modern through the Victorian eras. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to engage with students who are preparing for higher education.
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!
