About this tutor

Here's some of what I have to offer:

College Application Consulting

I know how difficult the college application process can be, and, unfortunately, that getting into the best colleges in the country involves a lot of luck. Fortunately, I have the experience to help high school seniors craft the best application they can. When I was applying to colleges, I wasn't a valedictorian, researcher, or star athlete, but nonetheless I was accepted to Yale, Princeton, and Stanford, and waitlisted at Harvard and MIT.

SAT Preparation

There's a poorly-hid secret about standardized tests: they don't really measure academic potential. Instead, they measure an ability to answer certain kinds of contrived questions, and all it takes to foster that ability is the right kind of practice. I improved my own score on the SAT by over 100 points to place in the 99th percentile, and I can help my students do the same.

Academic Writing Tutoring

Writing well is simply writing efficiently. After assessing my student's grammar, I draw on classics like Strunk & White's The Elements of Style and William Zinsser's On Writing Well to help them tell efficient sentences from clumsy ones as we collaboratively edit their work. Then, following the Yale Writing Center’s paragraph guides, my students learn how well-written sentences fit together into a persuasive essay. Alternatively, I can work with students on their specific writing projects.

Please let me know if you have any questions! Best of luck with your academic success.

    When my daughter needed someone to bounce her ideas off of, to help her structure her essay, or to refine her argument, Corin is a perfect editor who goes beyond proofreading and will be able to guide the student to be able to express their ideas concisely and elegantly. I highly recommend Corin.

    When I worked with Corin for just a couple sessions before my AP World exam, it changed the outcome of my score completely. He was able to help me comprehend and respond correctly to the questions giving me confidence for the test. I was also appreciative for his patience and guidance in math. He simplified the concepts and explained clearly how they connected to real world applications. It was great to work with someone who was open to any question! Thank you Corin!

    From a parent’s perspective… Working with Corin gave my daughter the opportunity to explore her math and writing skills and identify areas where she needed improvement. He helped her learn how to analyze and respond to assigned readings, prepare for AP exams, and organize college essays materials. Corin is organized, professional and experienced. We highly recommend working with him!
