Christina Coravos

Highway 9 Office Director, Team Leader, Test Prep and Academic Tutor


After growing up on the East Coast, I graduated summa cum laude from Rice University with a degree in chemistry and linguistics. I love learning and teaching, which I have explored in a variety of educational settings, including teaching my little sister math, tutoring Russian and biology, teaching English as a Second Language in Greece and Texas, being a college food science instructor, assisting a linguistics professor, and teaching high school chemistry.

Throughout my years of experience as an educator, I have come to understand the importance of taking an individualized approach to learning. No two students learn the same way, and it is crucial that each session is uniquely tailored to the needs of the student. I am excited to share my passion and knowledge for education with other tutors by serving as a team leader here at AJ!

As a test prep tutor, I recognize that high scores can provide opportunities, and I love helping students succeed. Naturally warm and inspiring, I create an environment that brings out the best in each student. I believe that standardized exams do not necessarily have to remain sources of anxiety and stress. Rather, multiple choice questions and essays can become enjoyable challenges or puzzles through familiarizing oneself with the structure of the exams and becoming more comfortable with effective strategies.

When I am not teaching, I am learning! I love nature, painting, puzzles, exploring, languages, music, and popcorn.
