Colin Raybin discovered the need for a reliable tutoring company after not only having tutored for 10 years in subjects in which she was qualified to tutor but also having been asked for 10 years to recommend tutors for subjects in which she was not qualified to tutor. Colin was astounded by the lack of reliable tutoring options available to parents. Upon further research, she discovered that 75% of private school students receive tutoring, according to www.bloomberg.com. This information simply backed her intuition that there was a huge void to be filled, and Colin Raybin founded Private School Edge to fill that void.
Colin Raybin founded Private School Edge in 2008 after 10 years as a Professional Tutor for a leading test preparation company. She was a Master Trainer, training teachers across the country to teach the GMAT. She was a Master Teacher/Tutor for the ERB, PSAT, SAT, SAT II, ACT, ISEE, SSAT, MCAT, and GMAT as well as academic subject material. She has worked with students as young as seven, and as old as 60. She also wrote and edited course materials for in-house manuals and for publication by Random House publications under her maiden name, Colin Mysliwiec, including Cracking the SSAT & ISEE and 11 Practice Tests for the New SAT, and wrote script for the Cracking the GMAT DVD.
Colin Raybin graduated with Highest Honors from the University of Michigan, where she was a James B. Angell Scholar, a member of the Golden Key National Honor Society, a Michigan Scholar for performance on the ACT, and a recipient of several merit scholarships: the Target Merit Scholarship, the Harrah Merit Scholarship and the Julian and Vera McIntosh Memorial Merit Scholarship.
