Corey D. Rinicella, J.D.

Success Coach


Corey began his undergraduate studies at Loyola University of New Orleans.  Following his evacuation due to Hurricane Katrina, Corey transferred to John Carroll University at the beginning of his junior year. Throughout his undergraduate education at John Carroll, Corey assisted his professors in tutoring his colleagues in languages such as Italian, Latin, and Greek. Corey received several awards at John Carroll for his proficiency in Italian and Latin.

Upon his graduation from John Carroll, Corey began working at Catholic Charities’ Refugee and Immigration Center, and soon developed a passion for working with individuals from diverse countries and cultures. While at Catholic Charities, Corey volunteered to teach English as a Second Language (ESL), and also acted as an interpreter for refugees from Francophone areas. On account of this passion, he decided to go to law school with the goal of practicing immigration law.

Corey attended Loyola College of Law in New Orleans from 2009 through 2012, working for the Immigration Law Clinic throughout his time there.  Because of his dedication in working for the Loyola Law Clinic, Corey received an award for being the top student-attorney in immigration law for the class of 2012.

Upon the birth of his son in 2016, Corey decided to change career paths and focus on education.  For the past two years, Corey has worked as a private tutor for pre-teens, teenagers, and young adults.  Corey coaches English composition and grammar, Language Arts, History, Italian, Latin, Greek, and Spanish in addition to study tips for SAT/ACT test preparation.
