Math has always been my favorite subject. I'm fascinated with its necessity found everywhere in nature. I've been teaching for about three 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 math. 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 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!

If you need a tutor who has a passion for programming and will go above and beyond then Corey is a perfect match. I am very new to programming and he was able to explain logic and math and various concepts to me well while at the same time not worrying about the time of our session but rather that i understood the subject matter. Also he asked me questions on what i think should be done, which is huge for me because i learn best not only when someone is teaching but when they ask me to think for myself. 5 stars Corey, thanks! and looking forward to our next session.

Corey has been the best tutor I've learned from! I started taking lessons with him about half way through a semester that I was taking trig. At this time I had a D in the class and was completely lost during lectures, just after two lessons with him my understanding in trig sky rocketed, I was able to move my grade from a D to a B! There's no way I could've done this without his help!
