Said was born and raised in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. He graduated from New York University with a Bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering along with a minor in economics.
Placing among the top ten out of 330,000 students in Tanzania, Said was awarded a scholarship at the International School of Tanganyika to be part of the IB Diploma Program. After finishing high school, Said volunteered at the Tanzania Student Achievement Organization (TANSAO), where he assisted students with SAT preparation, English language enhancement and college applications. Said later received a full tuition waiver to study engineering at NYU with a strong emphasis on the liberal arts as well as cross-disciplinary learning.
In his free time, Said enjoys listening to music and playing soccer. As an avid Game of Thrones fan, he’s always down for a serious discussion about who will end up on the Iron Throne.
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.
