Math has always been my favorite subject. I'm fascinated with its necessity found everywhere in nature. I've been teaching for about four years now. I focus on the ability to read and write math as a language. This is what bridges the gap between memorizing math and understanding it. Being a student myself I've noticed a lot of teachers fail to take this approach in the classrooms, leaving math to become a tamed subject with nothing more than a bunch of seemingly random steps. However, this couldn't be further from the truth! My lessons will boost your understanding of math in a way that makes you excited to keep learning more!
About Corey S.

Hi my name is Corey, I'm a computer science major and I am a huge nerd when it comes to math and other subjects of science. I have a strong passion for helping students just like myself excel in their academic goals! I began tutoring once I got back in school. At first it started off as a little side gig I didn't think much of. For me, it was a fun way to better understand material I already knew. It was after I got positive feedback from students when I realized tutoring is something I really enjoy and started taking far more seriously. As a tutor the most effective approach I've found is to first make sure my student has a firm grasp on the first principles involved and expand from there by taking a deeper dive into the abstract of the concept at hand. I always teach in general notation along with a visual basis, as this greatly helps my student better understand the concepts they're learning. From here I transition into individual and situational cases giving my student a chance to show me how well they're understanding the material. The goal I set for myself as a tutor is to be sure that my students understand every topic covered on the same level that I understand it myself. So far my approach has shown to be the best method in achieving this goal. A lot students I've worked with were falling behind in their classes and these are the students I like to focus on because they give me the opportunity to show that my approach to tutoring works with all of them quickly getting back up to speed. If you're interested in taking one of my lessons and think my method of learning is something that will work for you, contact me and let's get that A!

Corey is currently tutoring me in Java, a subject I find very painful to learn. It was difficult to understand my professor's method of teaching, since he dove right into syntax without explaining the foundational piece. As a result, I was not retaining any of it. Corey has in-depth knowledge of why Java works and how it works, which is a good launch point to move to actual programming. Recommend him for anyone who, like me, struggles to understand the basics. He also keeps my interest in a way that makes it not so painful - sometimes bordering on enjoyable!

My daughter is high functioning autistic and was struggling with Algebra 1 to the point of nearly failing the class. We tried to work with another tutor but that was unsuccessful due to personality conflict between the tutor and my daughter. Once Corey started tutoring her, with his focus on understanding over memorization, my daughter's grades improved dramatically and she was so much happier. We were extremely happy with Corey's approach to teaching, his work ethic, and his patience and understanding dealing with someone with special needs. We intend to continue lessons with Corey in the fall for the next school year.
