"Hi, I'm Cori! I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelors in Child Development and went on to earn a Master's of Science in Child Development as well. It was while earning my degrees that I started working at a charter school and fell in love with teaching and tutoring. I love working with students, discovering how their brain works, and providing tools that help them find success. I believe in making everything concrete and hands on, and I tailor my lessons to each specific student. Learning should be fun and engaging, and I strive to bring both elements to every subject.

When I was in school, I struggled with math, and it is this fact that makes me so good at teaching math. I remember how discouraging it can be, especially when everyone around you seems to get it. I've taught 5th grade math, helped with the implementation of Singapore Math, and recently ran a remedial math class for 8th graders. I make sure to explain things in many different ways, and will explain over and over until I hit on the correct explanation for the student I'm working with. Many math concepts can be abstract, so I keep my lessons as hands-on as possible. I like to bring art and real-world application to my lessons, and keep things as relevant to the learner as possible. I currently run an after-school program, where I include lots of math games in the curriculum. Games are a great way to increase things like fact fluency while students are having fun! I have also tutored students in language arts, elementary and middle school science, and I have experience working with ELL students.

It gives me such a warm feeling to hear of a student's success, or see the light come on when a concept is mastered. It's what I love the most about teaching! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or to schedule a lesson." less...
