Highly Trained SAT & ACT Tutors and Expert US University Advisors
Outstanding Results on the SAT & ACT
We are proud of our results! After attending a bootcamp, or working one-on-one with one of our highly trained tutors, student scores significantly improve on both the SAT and ACT. On the ACT, a test scored out of 36 points, student scores improved by 5 points on average. Students in the top 25% percent improved their scores by 8 points. On the SAT, an exam scored out of 1600 points, student scores improved 166 points on average. Students in the top 25% improved their scores 293 points.
Exceptional SAT & ACT Tutors and Expert US University Advising
Our dynamic SAT and ACT tutors have years of experience working with students to help them reach their full potential. We offer a variety of tutoring methods, platforms, and settings such as group courses, one-on-one tutoring, and even online sessions to accommodate student schedules and geographic parameters. All A-List tutors are graduates of top US universities and go through extensive and ongoing A-List training. Because prepping for the SAT or ACT is just one part of the US university application process, we also offer expert US university advising. Working with an US admissions specialist is the best way to create a competitive application list, complete the common application to a high standard, and receive personal coaching for the application essays.
Proprietary SAT & ACT Technology & Materials
A-List’s approach is data driven. We’ve created proprietary SAT and ACT test prep materials based on extensive research and years of standardised test preparation experience. All of our students have access to free proctored full-length practice tests which we offer on a weekly basis. Tests are scored using our sophisticated grading and analysis technology and students receive detailed progress reports after every test.This approach allows tutors to give targeted feedback to students and helps them strategically improve their scores.
Customised SAT & ACT Tutoring and US University Admissions Plans
A-List’s client service team understands how best to incorporate US test prep and university applications into an international student’s schedule. By understanding the demands of both school systems, our team is able to develop realistic and customised plans for every student. Most of our students also apply to Oxbridge and UCAS schools, thus we work to make sure that deadlines do not come into conflict and all applications are completed to a high standard.
From Our Tutoring Clients
A-List’s tutors are excellent. The A-List Book of Knowledge textbook helped IMMENSELY, and condensed all the topics in very understandable ways. The college counsellors have many years of expertise in the field, and can help you find a range of schools that are tailored to your requirements. I would recommend getting assistance from A-List to anyone who wants to study in the USA.

Dear A-List’ers—I just wanted to let you know that, thanks to your effective SAT tutoring, my son was offered a place at Stanford in the early action round. We are thrilled! Thank you for helping prepare him for the SAT and SAT Subject Tests over the past 15 months. He found it incredibly valuable and effective.

—Daniel A, +530 SAT points, awarded $62,000 per year by Harvard University.
I can’t recommend A-List UK enough. You really feel that you can use as much or as little from what they offer to suit your needs. I will certainly be using them for my other two children!

A-List is the best possible method of applying to the US. The quality of care is exceptional and they truly are my saving grace.
