Natalina Maiorino is the Controller for all 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 Academy 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.
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 Academy and working with the unique and special students and families of the Palm Beach Gardens area.
Maggie Alexander, Head of School for our Wellington location, discovered the power of individualized education while tutoring undergraduate students at George Washington University. Maggie conveys her goals for education this way: “In order to be successful in college or any profession, it’s essential that a student learn to articulate thoughts in writing and in speech."
Maggie spent several years as Academic Director and College Counselor at an area tutoring service, where she also tutored students in the humanities, social sciences, and writing. She has worked in admissions and financial aid at a liberal arts college in

Maggie holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in sociology, both from George Washington University, as well as a certificate in college counseling from UCLA.
Come to our Wellington center and be greeted at the door by one of Maggie’s four “wellness officers” (they’re canines!). She supports and advocates dog rescue and animal humane associations. Maggie’s other interests include competing on the national show jumping circuit, traveling the world, Texas hold’em, cooking, and following college and professional sports. Counselor, educator, athlete, and humanitarian, Maggie provides unexcelled direction to our Wellington learning center and school.
Born and raised in South Florida, Celine Badal grew up a few miles from our Coral Springs location. She attended University of Central Florida, graduating with a Bachelor’s in Communication Sciences and Disorders and a minor in Psychology. While attending UCF, Celine was a member of the Mental Health Association of Central Florida and volunteered to assist stroke patients with aphasia.
After college, Celine worked with individuals with autism and tutored students with cognitive, speech, and developmental disabilities. The importance of education was instilled in her from a young age, and she owes her academic success to her parents who constantly reminded her that education and knowledge are personal assets which no one could ever take away. This generated a passion for working with children and continually seeking opportunities to help students find and grow into their best selves.
Celine motivates and supports students so that they understand the importance of curiosity, education and academic growth. Her most recent experience to date involved working with K-12 students in Title I schools in Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami-Dade counties into which she integrated her interests and passion by overseeing academic enrichment programs for hundreds of students. She provided ongoing professional development as well as parental engagement workshops.
A second-generation Trinidadian, Celine comes from a close-knit, but rather large family. She enjoys cooking, spending time with family and friends, and travelling. She has recently been accepted into Florida Atlantic University’s Master’s Degree Program in Educational Psychology. Celine is excited to be part of the Score Family and looks forward to further expanding our Coral Springs location.
Let's discuss a custom learning strategy that will get you or your student on a path to success.
