Math Tutor in CT - About Richard Corn

About Richard Corn

Before tutoring, Mr. Corn was designing and building computer systems for large corporations. He decided to pursue his longstanding interest in mathematics and education, and since then he has helped hundreds of middle school and high school students with their studies in mathematics and with preparation for standardized tests.

Standardized Testing

His standardized testing students have increased their math scores by as much as 210 SAT points (or ACT equivalent). When students complained about the quality of the prep books sold by big box companies like Barrons, Kaplan, and Princeton Review, Mr. Corn decided to write his own books for the math sections of the ACT and SAT. His books have been very successful, having sold more than 36,000 copies. Book sales are mostly on Amazon, but there have also been direct sales to school book stores and tutoring companies.

College Admission Results

His students have gone on to attend many top colleges, including Amherst, Babson, Bates, Berkeley, Boston College, Bowdoin, Brown, Bucknell, Claremont McKenna, Colgate, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Davidson, Duke, Emory, Georgetown, Hamilton, Johns Hopkins, Lehigh, MIT, Michigan, Middlebury, Mt Holyoke, NYU, Northwestern, Penn, Princeton, RPI, Smith, Stanford, Tufts, Tulane, UNC, UVA, Vanderbilt, Vassar, Villanova, Wake Forest, Washington University, Wesleyan, West Point, and Yale.
