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. So, 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
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.
