    ExcellenT! Great communication, engaging, and a mentor to the child and family

  • Rachel Kennedy

    We have been tutoring with Corrine for three years now. She has been a huge asset in helping our third grader who has dyslexia and ADHD keep up with school. I would recommend Corrine to anyone looking for tutoring services.

  • Janine Runfola

    She enjoys going to tutoring because it is different from what she does in school. It is fun and engaging. She shares her spelling lessons with us to show us what she has learned. This is giving her more confidence with reading and writing.

    Our experience with ProgressiveK12 has been fantastic! Corrine takes the time to understand the strengths as well as the challenges faced by each student she serves. I appreciate how she recognizes the unique personalities and interests of her students. I am impressed by the new reading program she has introduced to both of my children and am eager to watch their abilities and confidence improve! We have already noticed improvement in the few sessions following her implementation of the Orton-Gillingham program. We are all encouraged to see the results of future intervention.

How did you get started teaching?

I started as special education teacher in the public school system. I was so frustrated with the red tape, the lack of professional development, the lack of educational growth from my students with the district provided curriculum, and finally, the lack of connection with my families were frustrating, so I started ProgressiveK12. 

Now, I can use researched based best practices, and your child's strengths to teach them in a variety of subjects. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with a variety of students including:

-Twice exceptional

-ADHD

-Autism

-Gifted

-Learning disabled

-Dyslexia/Dysgraphia

-Neurotypical

-Other Abled students


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I have learned  a great deal from students but one moment I love was when I was teaching subtraction to a Gifted Kindergardner. She and I were using a computer based program that allows students to draw circles and squares. I was writing the problem in a vertical direction. After two problems, she copies her third problem on the interactive board hortizonally and asks, "Does this mean the same thing?" 

The reason I love this moment was that it reminded me of the importance of visual space. This was a gifted student and she was able to make the connection between horizontal and vertical operations without any support. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Ask your tutor the following questions:

1. How long have you been teaching?

2. Do I get reports to know how my child is doing?

3. Will you work with my child's teacher to ensure her success in the classroom?


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

When thinking about tutoring, the best question to answer is, what goal(s) do I want to accomplish?
