Originally from Los Angeles, CA, Dory is A-List’s Director of Tutoring and one of A-List NY’s senior
tutors and college advisors. As a Gluck Fellow at UCLA, Dory began tutoring math and discovered his
passion for helping students not only succeed academically, but improve their focus, discipline, and
self-confidence. Since joining A-List, Dory has personally helped hundreds of students get accepted to
their dream schools through SAT/ACT instruction and application and essay advising (his class of
2018 included acceptances to Columbia, Cooper Union, Cornell, Johns Hopkins, NYU, UVA,
Northeastern, Northwestern, Carnegie Mellon, Vanderbilt, Syracuse, Brandeis, UT Austin, Tulane,
UMass Amherst, and others) and is proud to have indirectly contributed to the success of many more
by training new tutors, presenting to teachers all over the country, writing curriculum, and producing
materials for A-List’s online portal.
Drawing from his experience teaching high school math to a diverse body of students, he is particularly in demand as a tutor for students with learning differences who appreciate his patience and ability to break down complicated concepts. Outside of A-List, Dory is an active performer of opera and oratorio and enjoys travel, photography, and funny cat videos.
