John resides in Stamford, CT with his wife and young son. What is now his full-time job began as just a part-time job while he was studying to be a screenwriter at Columbia University. But, as John facetiously likes to say, “Since no one bought anything that I wrote, I had no choice but to continue teaching.” Recruited by his friend and colleague Scott Farber, John is actually one of the five founders of A-List.

When Scott presented John with the opportunity to build a better mouse trap, he was more than ready. Before he joined A-List, John was already familiar with the test-preparation industry, having worked as both a director and teacher for several test-preparation companies. During that time, John estimates that he taught over 3000 students from Nassau County, Suffolk County, Westchester, New Jersey, and all five boroughs of New York City. He has researched the SAT and ACT, spoken about the SAT and ACT, written materials on the SAT and ACT, and has actually taken quite a few of them too over the years.

“John Oh was an exceptional tutor and a great fit for my son, right off the bat they hit it off. John’s energy and patience helped my son achieve the score he wanted. He never discouraged him from taking the test many times, rather gave him the confidence he needed to keep going. I currently have a son in 9th grade and will definitely use John again for him!”

-Father of Gabriel S. (SAR High School, 2019)
