For 40 years Linda Sofa has been instructing all ages and skill levels. After receiving her certification from the University of Minnesota and teaching pre-school children for 2 years she decided to pursue a degree in education. In the early 1970s, Linda attended the University of Hawaii (UH) at Manoa where she graduated with a degree in secondary education earning honorary marks for academic distinction. After working in Hawaii’s public school system, Linda returned to UH to work in the graduate studies program as a reading specialists. In subsequent years, Mrs. Sofa has taught adult and elementary ESL, special needs, and advanced students as well as individually tutoring for specific subject levels, entrance exams, and standardized testing preparation. In addition, she has trained many teachers to become superb instructors in their own rights, as evidenced by their individual students’ success. It is the culmination of her experiences and vision for a modern, individually tailored, and mastery based education system that gave birth to Corvid Academy. In her free time she continues to pioneer and tweak new methodologies to enrich the education of her students… seriously, she does nothing else.
