Hi! My name is Kerry Pinnisi. I'm a proud graduate of Cornell University (B.A. in Psychology, 2011) and William James College (M.A. in Psychology, 2014). I have founded my own business as a Productivity Coach, specializing in executive functioning and motivation. I also enjoy helping students learn with tutoring! My background means I am well suited to clients with test anxiety, and other psychological factors that interfere with academic potential. I have experience working with clients with ADD/ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder.

My favorite subjects to tutor are Psychology, French, writing, and SAT prep (especially SAT Verbal), though I have a wide range of other qualifications.

For fun, I enjoy board games (a few favorites: Ghost Stories, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Dominion) and video games (Hearthstone, various indie games, and anything Legend of Zelda!), music (mostly piano, although I'm trying to learn guitar and I love singing with friends), and theater (especially improv comedy - Who's Line is it Anyway, Second City, Upright Citizens Brigade, and more).
