Mike Obstgarten, the owner/founder of MostPrep, is a test-preparation veteran who has already personally helped hundreds of students in the Las Vegas valley improve their standardized-test scores. Mike also previously served on the Henderson Blue Ribbon Commission on Educational Excellence and Youth Opportunity.
In the five years prior to moving to Henderson with his family, Mike was the senior director at TestTakers, a leading SAT preparation company in New York, where he was not only responsible for the score improvements of hundreds of students every year, but also trained teachers, wrote curriculum and, of course, taught classes himself. Before that, Mike spent three years teaching math at The Knox School, a co-ed boarding school in New York, where he created a year-long course for juniors who had struggled with algebra and geometry in order to get them better prepared for the SAT and ACT.
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!
