Subject Specialties: SAT/ACT
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Sophie graduated magna cum laude from the University of Southern California where she earned a degree in Theatre and established the USC Musical Theatre Repertory’s inaugural dance workshop series, orchestrating and teaching the workshops herself. She has over 8 years of teaching experience, working with children ages 2-17 in subjects ranging from math to Shakespeare to stage combat. She’s completed marketing internships at a number of the country’s foremost theatre companies including Center Theatre Group and the New York Musical Festival, creating marketing assets that appeared on billboards in Times Square and interpreting a variety of data analytics. She has taught for A-List in numerous high school classrooms throughout New York City, having mastered all facets of the test. Most recently, Sophie taught a research writing course for incoming college freshmen through Harlem Children’s Zone at Columbia University. When she’s not teaching, Sophie spends the vast majority of her time sitting in audition holding rooms, writing comedic scripts, and practicing hot yoga. She has already helped hundreds of students improve test scores through classroom instruction and she’s thrilled to bring her expertise to the tutoring department.
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!
