Dr. Carolyn Tate
Content Developer & Senior University Advisor
After graduating from Pomona College with a BA in English, Carolyn worked as a seventh-grade language-arts teacher in Baltimore through the Teach For America programme. Her love of teaching literature and writing led her to earn a Ph.D. in English literature from the University of Virginia where she also taught freshmen writing, queer studies, and seminars on gender and the history of the novel. Subsequently, she taught at leading independent schools in both Connecticut and Pennsylvania. Having originally come to England to do archival work at the British Library in London and at the Bodleian Library in Oxford, she decided to relocate to London permanently. Carolyn has extensive experience working both within schools as a counsellor and privately with students on both sides of the Atlantic. When not helping students with their college essays, Carolyn writes about representations of Victorian culture and literature in contemporary media.

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.

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!

Really useful and fun camp. My SAT score improved massively.
Not only did A-List allow me to greatly improve my scores, but it also gave me an opportunity to make new friends.
A-List was 100% what I was looking for in SAT preparation. The strategies and techniques – they all work!
