Joe Reece has been a test prep tutor in New York since 2014, joining the A-List team in March of 2016. A native of Kansas City, Joe moved to New York in 2013 after graduating from the University of Central Missouri to pursue a career in Theatre. Joe scored above the 90th percentile on the SAT, ACT, and PSAT (in all subjects). When not tutoring, Joe is constantly trying to be a fool in front of live audiences across the boroughs of NYC. He also loves reading, running, watching the latest and greatest in TV, and cheering on the KC Royals.
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!
