Strategy & Content Focus
A-List uses an integrated approach focusing on both strategy and content. Our curriculum and materials include a suite of tips, hints, and alternate methods for addressing questions on every exam, but we also address the underlying principles of content to impart a more holistic comprehension of exams.
In addition to teaching all the “tricks” we know, we also make sure students are skilled enough to understand basic content from fractions and subject-verb agreement to more complex content, like trigonometric transformations and dangling modifiers. We find that this combination helps students address even the hardest of questions, understanding their underlying purpose as well as ways to make them more accessible.
- Our regular practice tests help tutors hone in on areas of strength and weakness, whether they are in content or strategy
- A-List has a flexible curriculum that tutors can modify to meet the needs of any student; instructors can slow down to ensure mastery of simple concepts or speed up for advanced students
- All of our materials are designed to cultivate mastery of content, while also making sure to remind students when strategies are important
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!
