Lucy A., Jumeirah College, +8 ACT
My experience with A-List was incredibly helpful! Not only did Thomas teach me skills that were integral for the ACT, but I have developed my thinking skills by learning these techniques and use them in my own school work now! Thank you to everyone at A-List!
Scott S., Dubai College, + 8 ACT
Coming from a British curriculum school I did not know what to expect out of the test and was extremely unprepared, however, after just a couple months of sessions I was feeling much more comfortable with the content and material on the ACT… Overall, I would highly recommend using a-lists services as it helped me go up a total of 8 ACT points, something I don’t believe I could’ve done alone.
Mostafa K., GEMS World Academy, +6 ACT
I would like to thank A-list and my tutor for helping me achieve an amazing score on my ACTs. I know that I would not have been able to receive the same score if it wasn’t for my tutor at A list. Thomas is a great tutor who helped me with all my weaknesses and helped me develop my strengths. He gave me great and very useful advice, and the strategies he gave me came very in handy and were incredibly helpful. I would recommend A-list’s tutoring services to anyone.
