Math has always been my favorite subject. I admire its necessity found everywhere in nature. I've been teaching for about two 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 boring and 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!

Hi my name is Corey, I'm currently a full-time student in the Bay Area. I'm pursuing a degree in Computer Science and I'm a huge nerd when it comes to math and other subjects of science. I have a strong passion for helping other 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 I think much of; for me, it was a fun act of kindness that also gave me a chance 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 found is to first make sure my students have 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 students 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 are understanding the lesson.
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 in my approach this has shown to be the best method in achieving this goal. Most of the students I've worked with were on the verge of failing their classes and in fact these are the student I like to focus on because it gives me the opportunity to show that my approach to learning works, with everyone of my students finishing out their semester nothing short of a B.
If you're interested in taking one of my lessons and think my approach to learning is something that will work for you, please contact me and let's get that A this semester!
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!Show More
