School & Institutional Partnerships Coordinator, New York
LaGuardia Community College
A native New Yorker hailing from Queens, Kryzia has been with A-List since early 2014. As a Schools and Institutional Partnerships (SIP) Coordinator, she assists with logistics for many of A-List schools, organizations, and non-profits. Affectionately called “The Portal Master” by colleagues, she also works closely with the A-List test assessment platform used by tens of thousands of students worldwide.
In the time following her high school graduation, 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 to empowering young adults by preparing them for their professional careers. After she graduated from the program in 2014, Kryzia applied to A-List—which had helped build Year Up’s mathematics curriculum—and was quickly welcomed into the family.
A few months into joining the A-Team, Kryzia began to study 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 full-time Liberal Arts 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.”
Mother of Phoebe C.
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!
