Customised SAT, ACT and US Exam Tuition & Intensive Bootcamp Courses
The A-List Approach
Standardised tests dominate the process of applying to US universities. Combining the SAT/ACT and SAT Subject Tests with A levels or the IB can be a daunting task. With more than 3 million students competing for spots at some of the world’s best universities, it’s no surprise that these exams become the focus of families across the world.
A huge part of being successful on these exams is having the right programme: this is where A-List comes in. Our tutors give students tools that not only help prepare for these big exams but also foster study skills for the rest of their academic careers.
Built around customised one-on-one tutoring and intensive Bootcamps, our comprehensive programme takes a unique approach for each student, matching the student’s learning style and motivation with the right educator. Beginning with a consultation with a member of our wonderful Client Service Team, your student will be paired with one of our tutors who we feel best complements your student’s personality, goals, academic needs, and his or her interests. For most students, this initial step is the most important. Once we find the right match, we begin the student’s personalised program with weekly lessons, individualised homework assignments, and practice exams.
What sets us apart from our competitors?
- Our one-on-one, in-person and online tutoring
We provide families with the option of private, individual prep solutions. Convenience and ease of scheduling are critical for families and students that juggle multiple sports, after-school activities, and the large amount of homework that students face towards the end of high school. We work with your schedule to provide the flexibility you need. We work with students at our office on High Street Kensington, at homes in Central London and via online video platforms.
- A flexible, customised curriculum
Our curriculum can be customised for each individual student’s needs. A cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all curriculum will not work for a student with particular needs. Whether a student is great at reading comprehension but needs help with grammar skills, or is great at algebra but needs help with geometry, our tutors have the expertise to adapt your student’s lessons to match his or her needs.
- An integrated approach
Some programmes place emphasis on either strategy or content; our approach is a combination of both. A-List’s curriculum includes a suite of tips, hints, and alternate methods for addressing questions on every exam. But we also address the underlying principles of the test to gain a better understanding of the exam. A-List educators are all well versed in the foundational aspects of the test, which are often necessary for a student to gain the broader knowledge needed for a large score improvement. Also part of our programme, we offer regularly-scheduled practice tests, free of cost, to all of our tutoring clients.
- Long-term focus
Our goal with A-List prep is to ensure broad understanding and create lasting growth in our students’ level of comprehension across the board. Building the right foundation for students through prep leads to more successful students not just for their standardised test, but for every assignment or test they face for the rest of their academic careers.
- Quality instruction
Our educators are not freelancers—our staff is composed of dedicated professionals. Each one of our tutors is carefully vetted and put through a rigorous training programme to ensure both quality and dedication. Make no mistake—as engaging as the lessons can be, there is no replacement for hard work and dedication on behalf of the student. Through quality instruction, we can inspire each student to work to his or her academic potential.

What Can A-List Help You With?
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!
