About Corrina

I believe that if you give a student a system for learning, they can achieve anything. I find out what a student knows, so time isn't wasted repeating it, and then break down what hasn't been mastered into simple chunks so the student is not overwhelmed. By adapting my teaching method to the student, tremendous results can be achieved.

My educational background is in English, but I have a lot of work experience using mathematics. I taught English SAT Prep for Sylvan, and my strategy was so effective I was hired to teach the math portion as well. I doubled the advertised score increase for my students. Additionally, I taught a reading technique that is popular world wide (it's a high school graduation requirement for Australia) for reading quickly and accurately. In one week (of multiple hours per day) I was able to increase my students' reading and retention rates by 300%.

Again, it's all about the learning strategy. If the school's strategy isn't working for your child, let me give it a shot and see if I can get it to click.

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.

Praxis

I am an excellent teacher of standardized test strategies. I can definitely teach the Praxis 1. I would only feel comfortable teaching the subject test for the one I took, which was the English Language, Literature, and Composition: Content Knowledge Test.

My scores were as follows: Reading 186, Writing 186, Mathematics 190 (perfect score), Content Knowledge 198.

I earned the ETS Recognition of Excellence for outstanding performance on my Content Knowledge test.

Writing

I have a BA in English and an MS in creative writing. I have done extensive work in the process of writing, so I can teach organization strategies, and also how to approach a topic creatively.
