Michael studied actuarial science at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, graduating with honors in 2015. After working as an actuary for a leading insurance company in Chicago and New York, he was accepted to Columbia University to study health sciences in preparation for medical school. Throughout his time as a student, Michael tutored middle and high schoolers in language arts, mathematics, and computer science. In the professional world, he volunteered time with at-risk students in a Chicago after school program focused on improving math fluency.
In his free time Michael loves to explore the New York music scene and find study spots that make studying organic chemistry a (tiny) bit easier.
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!
