University of Minnesota-Duluth, Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre
Subject Specialties: SAT/ACT
Born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Kayla graduated cum laude from the University of Minnesota–Duluth with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre. Growing up, in high school and college, Kayla held many leadership roles including Speech Team Captain and Vice President of the Drama Club, which entailed helping new students to get acclimated to the school and also involved setting specific goals for themselves throughout the year. As the daughter of a math teacher, she often helped her mother grade tests/homework and various projects for her classes. She has worked with students of all ages on various subjects during the summers and school years. Since moving to New York this past April, Kayla has worked in numerous customer service jobs, and has enjoyed getting to know this city. In addition to tutoring, Kayla is an emerging Actor, and spends time working with friends to create various projects and films. When she is not acting or helping students prepare for the ACT/SAT, Kayla enjoys yoga, hanging out with her friend’s dog, and going for walks along the Hudson.
I think A-List is a great organization. My tutor was positive and tailored the material to my learning style. She made learning each subject fun and presented new topics in an engaging fashion. Thank you so much to A-List for helping me achieve my personal best!
A-List gave me more than just practice tests and test-taking tips, though these were invaluable. My tutor connected with me on a personal level and helped me understand that I was capable of getting the score I wanted. Suddenly, I viewed my test-taking experience as a challenge, not a burden. I walked into my ACT with the confidence that I knew exactly how to conquer every aspect of the test.”

Both my children had an amazing experience with A-List! Steadily, she worked hard to improve her test scores. Taking the practice tests allowed her to gain confidence and learn to manage her time during the tests. Then a college advisor helped her write her college essays. She was an amazing guide who helped Phoebe focus and streamline her supplements and essays. Now she will be attending her dream college, Rice University, School of Architecture!
