User Success Manager, New York
LaGuardia Community College
A native New Yorker hailing from Queens, Kryzia has been with A-List since early 2014.
In the time following her high school graduation in 2010, Kryzia opted to join the workforce instead of immediately heading to college. She eventually attended and studied Financial Operations and Project Management at Year Up, a non-profit organization dedicated preparing young adults for their professional careers.
After she graduated from the program, Kryzia applied to A-List—which had helped build Year Up’s mathematics curriculum. She was quickly welcomed into the family as a Schools and Institutional Partnerships (SIP) Coordinator, assisting with logistics for many of A-List schools, organizations, and non-profits.
Affectionately called “The Portal Master” by colleagues through the years, Kryzia has moved on from assisting to managing the onboarding process of all clients onto A-List’s Test Assessment Platform. As the User Success Manager, she now personally onboards and trains clients on how to navigate and best utilize the platform—all while acting as their main support specialist and ensuring all client needs are met.
Shortly after joining the A-Team, Kryzia studied again for the SAT with the help of A-List Senior Tutor, Sherwyn Fullington. Within a few months, her scores improved by almost 400 points, which inspired her to head back to school. She is currently a Liberal Arts Music student at LaGuardia Community College, while still working full-time at A-List.
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!
