Born in DC and raised in the suburb of Silver Spring, MD, Leslie attended Bryn Mawr College on a $100,000 Presidential Scholarship, majored in chemistry and mathematics, and graduated cum laude with honors in Math. While at Bryn Mawr, Leslie developed an interest in STEM education, and was awarded a Noyce Foundation Fellowship to observe math educators and prepare lectures at an experimental high school in Philadelphia. In addition, Leslie spent two summers working for Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY) as a TA for introductory cryptological mathematics.
Leslie’s experience teaching and tutoring began in high school, where they worked in the writing center and organized AP chemistry and calculus study groups with friends. Leslie took nine AP courses, earning six 5’s and three 4’s, and graduated with special recognition from their English department. In their spare time, Leslie enjoys rock climbing.
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!
