Program Manager, New York
Auburn University (BS)
Mary is a graduate of Auburn University, where she received a BS in Wildlife Biology. During her time at Auburn, she worked closely with the College of Veterinary Medicine and the Southeastern Raptor Center caring for sick and injured birds of prey while participating in published scientific studies with an international veterinary team. Originally from Alabama, but growing up all over the southeast, Mary spent time teaching in English in Taipei and Dubai before becoming a Science Teacher and Department Head at a private school in Sharjah, UAE. Upon returning Stateside, she spent the next few years as a private tutor and classroom instructor in Atlanta before moving to NYC in 2016. In her spare time, Mary enjoys traveling, reading, passion fruit anything, and taxonomic classification.
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!
