About Corrinne

I've been tutoring since my junior year of high school, when I helped a kid in my Spanish class go from a D+ to a B-. I have tutored in chemistry, math, Spanish, and physics. I also acted as an assistant and substitute teacher at Heritage Academy during the school year 2014-2015 for grades K-8. During that time I gained experience teaching students with learning disabilities.

I love teaching people to do new things, whether it's a new gymnastics skill or a different way to think about an algebra problem. I find that if I can help students build confidence and let them know that they can ask me questions without feeling foolish, I usually put myself out of a job very quickly as they learn to handle the subject on their own.

I'm living in Northampton right now and will be going back to Mount Holyoke College soon, so I may be able to help you throughout the year. I look forward to working with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Cooking

I have been cooking since I was big enough to reach the counter. I am always trying out new recipes; most recently, I learned to make tamales, and I have been experimenting with my own falafel recipe. I often teach my roommates basic cooking skills, such as how to hold a knife in a way that avoids amputation, how to braise, blanch, and poach, and what kinds of fat to use in different circumstances.

Piano

I've been playing piano for seven years, mostly classical music and some jazz. I helped some of the students in my high school's beginner piano class when I was in the more advanced class. As far as my performance experience goes, I was a member of a pit band for my high school's show choir, a member of Mount Holyoke's jazz band, and I played in a wedding a month ago.
