Academic Support & Regents
A-List offers private, in home Academic Subject tutoring for students of all levels from middle school through college. Maintaining a high GPA is a key component of having a competitive college application. We can work hand in hand with your curriculum to help you stay at the top of the class. We also provide tutoring for NY State Regents exams.
When considering candidates, colleges pay significant attention to the student’s GPA. While SAT/ACT preparation is important students cannot neglect their grades. This is why A-List offers subject tutoring in addition to our test preparation services. A-List tutors can help if you are having trouble keeping up with your class work; we will help you realize your highest academic goals.
Regents are exams given to students seeking high school Regents credit through the New York State Education Department, designed and administered under the authority of the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York.
To receive a regular high school diploma, students in New York State must pass, with a score of 65 or higher, five Regents Exams: Integrated Algebra (or Math A), Global History and Geography, U.S. History and Government, Comprehensive English, and at least one Regents level science course (Earth Science, Biology/Living Environment, Chemistry, or Physics). To receive an Advanced Regents Diploma, students must also pass an additional Regents science exam, an additional math exam (Math B), and a foreign language exam.
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!
