Natalina Maiorino is the Controller for all Score at the Top/Score Academy locations. She has over 25 years experience in the accounting field, having worked in the transportation, law, and construction industries. But working at Score has been her most challenging and rewarding by far. She has applied her expertise to streamlining procedures and processes, and to identifying cost reductions that ensure optimal operations at each Score center
When, Score At The Top adopted LearnSpeed (LS), a web-based educational service software application, Natalina became the go-to person. Much to her credit, the software developers at LearnSpeed have come to rely on Natalina for incisive critique and suggestions “from the trenches.” A truly sweet, symbiotic relationship. Score Chief Operating Officer Jason considers Nat his right-hand woman in all matters pertaining to the comprehensive software tool. She also assists Jason with general Operations, Human Resources, management training, and, of course LearnSpeed training for new tutors and teachers: she’s the LS Guru!
Natalina is a first-generation Canadian of Italian descent. She grew up speaking Italian at home, English in school, and French (Québécois) around her neighborhood. Score’s polyglot has a smile that brightens the hallways wherever you find her! Natalina relocated with her husband to the Sunshine State from chilly Canada and has never looked back. She loves wearing open toed shoes year round, having left windshield scraping behind, north of the border. Now, it’s the salt life near the beach, in view of the ocean.
Our Nat holds a Bachelor Degree in Accounting from FAU, and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Western Governors University.
A Score At The Top tutoring and college-planning client way back when, Robin attended Vanderbilt University's Peabody College of Education, receiving undergraduate and graduate degrees there. She then moved to New York City and began teaching at a 6-12 school in the South Bronx. After 3 years, she came to her senses and moved back to Florida, where, since 2006, she has worked in the Palm Beach County public schools as a teacher, professional development and curriculum specialist, and school administrator. She has dedicated her life's work to identifying students’ strengths, and utilizing community-based and school resources to meet their needs and help them find a pathway to success. She has worked with every grade level, from 4-year-old VPK children to high school graduates; from students and families in need of safety and security first, to the top students at Suncoast High School. From each experience Robin learned that the one-size-fits-all model does not meet current student needs in today’s global economy.
Robin is a wife and mother of two. Parenting has given Robin an even deeper understanding of how important her role is as Head of School. When it comes to serving her families, no request is too small, no worry too insignificant – if it matters to you, it matters to Robin. She believes that it’s an honor and a privilege to be entrusted with your child's well-being and educational success every day. She treats every child as her own. Robin is excited to be at Score At The Top and working with the unique and special students and families of the Palm Beach Gardens area.
Maggie Alexander, Head of School and Learning Center Director for our Wellington location, discovered the power of individualized education while tutoring undergraduate students at George Washington University.

Counselor, educator, athlete, and humanitarian, Maggie provides unexcelled direction to our Wellington learning center and school.
Joseph Corace brings an excellent mix of educational and marketing experiences to his position as Director of Outreach. While studying for his undergraduate degree, he worked in retail, focusing on customer-service strategies to expand the client base. Graduating from FSU with a BA in history, Joseph returned to South Florida to start his teaching career in Taravella High School’s Exceptional Student Education department. It was there that Joseph created his own course curriculum, teaching a learning strategies class that helped students struggling with reading and math. While at Taravella, Joseph guided many students away from the path of failure so that they graduated on time. When Joseph moved from Taravella High to Seminole Middle School in 2014, he developed a world geography curriculum that is now used throughout Seminole Middle’s 8th grade. As a result of his exemplary teaching, he took over responsibility for the school’s social studies DECAL program (advanced classes for top-scoring Florida Standards students), implementing new strategy and curriculum ideas to improve the program and student performance.
Joseph joined Score At The Top in 2013 as an academic tutor and mentor. For five years he brought energy, enthusiasm, and positive results to his Score At The Top students, inspiring them to perform their best. Transitioning to his role as our Outreach Director in 2018, Joseph is thrilled to serve as Score’s ambassador to Palm Beach and Broward County communities. He meets with local educational and healthcare professionals to form new lasting partnerships. Joseph’s principal objective is to provide academic-support resources to the region’s educators and families.
Joseph has dedicated his career to education. He identifies and fulfills the needs of students using the best resources available at Score At The Top. In our growing organization, he’s dedicated, first and foremost, to continuous improvement that affects student success. When it comes to serving our families, Joseph addresses even the most modest requests in order to help students score at the top.
Among the many hats he wears, Joseph includes amateur historian/archaeologist with a focus on ancient South American and Middle Eastern civilizations. He enjoys world travel to discover artifacts – there’s nothing more exciting than a discovery that sheds new light on unanswered questions from the past.
Barbara Leventhal brings to our educational consulting practice more than 30 years of experience as a teacher, administrator, and college counselor. “All parents take great pride in the special qualities of their children. My role is to define those qualities and channel them in unique ways that tell a compelling story for college admission.”
Many parents know Barbara as the guru behind student projects. Her ideas inspire students to create original projects based on their interests. Fully engaged with her protegées, she then guides them through to project implementation. Some have created projects that drew thousands of dollars in donations; others have written and published Amazon best-selling books. Dream Dorm Decorators, started by one of Barbara’s students − and expanded to thirty more − furnished ten dorm rooms for Best Foot Foward’s foster kids. Barbara also planted the seeds for Boca Buckets, a hurricane cleanup kit, which her students gifted to families at Habitat for Humanity. Yet another of her students created bookfitclub.com to help libraries damaged after Hurricane Irma; students collected new and gently used children’s books and donated them to public libraries. Another student created Long Lake Cares to unite his neighbors through a holiday gift drive for underprivileged kids. Barbara has also mentored students with bilingual projects, one of which included a Spanish/English cookbook to benefit Boca Helping Hands. Community walkathons, baseball shirts for Best Foot Forward, holiday parties at Florence Fuller Child Development Center – the list goes on an on! Barbara encourages student leadership projects to address pressing global or local issues.
She enjoys the creative process inherent in working one-on-one, helping each student set goals, select summer programs that demonstrate intellectual curiosity and passion, and create unique personal projects that leave a legacy of community involvement.
“By getting to know each student personally, I’m able to recommend the best high-school class selections and optimal test-prep schedule, to develop college lists that match needs and interests, and to help students figure out how to make their applications stand out from those of other applicants,” Leventhal says.
Although Barbara Leventhal never set out to be a college admissions coach, her ultimate vocation came from a progression of life events that only look linear in the rearview mirror. Her career began as a classroom teacher in middle and high school, where she taught English, social studies, and public speaking, and coached girls’ softball and cheerleading. After seven years, Barb moved from the classroom to administration, serving as director of several middle schools: Miami Country Day, Cushman, Carrollton, and Doctor’s Charter High School, all in Miami. At Cushman, serving as Director of Admissions, she pioneered the first NPR on-air radio campaign to attract parents to the new middle school. To her work credits add Director of the Huntington Learning Center in Coral Gables, and both Program Director and Membership Director at the Michael Ann Russell JCC in North Miami Beach where she won the JWB award for Excellence in Communications and was awarded a generous grant for her special needs after-school program, Special Playtime.
Barb moved to Boca Raton in 2005 and opened her own office specializing in organization and study skills for middle- and high-school students. In doing so, she shared her knack for supporting classroom teachers by using a multimodal approach to reteach or explain concepts that students had not mastered. Her success resulted in requests from parents for help with their children’s college essays. By 2014, she was into college consulting on a full-time basis.
As an educational consultant, reading specialist, teacher, administrator, parent, and grandparent, Barbara Leventhal knows what it’s like to experience the stress and frustration at every step in the education process. Her empathy for her students makes things easier for both them and their parents.
Barbara earned her BS in Education from the University of Virginia and her MS in Reading from Barry University. She serves the community as a Block Captain for the American Heart Association, and as a member of the Board of Trustees at Temple Beth El of Boca where she is VP of Education. She is a professional member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA) and the Small Boarding Schools Association (SBSA).
Since 2013, Kathy Hart has been an invaluable asset to our educational team at Score At The Top Learning Center and School in Palm Beach Gardens, first serving as an expert teacher and tutor specializing in high school English and test preparation for the ACT and SAT. In her vital role as educational consultant, Kathy guides students through the various aspects of the college planning and application process, from consulting on high school course selection and extracurricular activities to preparing students for effective college visits and interviews. That inspirational guidance takes her students through the more subjective elements of the application process, too: developing creative essay ideas, drafting essays, and improving student writing. The end product of the collaboration: applications and essays that make her students stand out! She also regularly attends conferences and visits colleges to stay abreast of the most recent admissions trends.
Originally from New England, Kathy loves all things Boston. She graduated with honors from Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA, with a BA in Spanish and an interdisciplinary concentration in Middle Eastern Studies, enriching her education at the University of the Balearic Islands in Spain. After a stint teaching Spanish at Canterbury School in Connecticut, Kathy spent the following decade moving around the country in support of her husband’s Air Force career, all while raising their two daughters.
Happily settled in Jupiter, FL, she completed her Master’s in Creative Writing at Antioch University Midwest. At Score At The Top, she loves the small classroom environment where she effectively supports her students’ unique educational needs. Her interests include writing, travel, fitness, and cooking.
