Hello Parents and Students,
I am looking forward to making your subject easier and more interesting. I have a Masters of Science Education and have taught for 27 years, both in California and in Asia. I have taught and tutored students from Kindergarten to the University level. I can help your student in Chemistry, Algebra I Algebra II, Physics, Earth Science, Biology, Geometry, K- Middle School subjects, Spanish I & II, test preparation among many other subjects. I utilize many helpful strategies to help your student remember important concepts permanently. What seemed difficult before without a tutor will become second nature.
I have studied the bible for 24 years. I taught a bible class (The Gospels) at Morrison Academy to 7th graders for two years. I understand Hebrew and read it well. I can speak some. I have also lead bible studies at church and have taught Sunday school for over 15 years. I also taught my own home school children bible in their home school for 4 years. I took both Old Testament and New Testament classes for my undergraduate studies. In Jerusalem at the University of Jerusalem, I also took Biblical Archeology and Rabbinic Thought. I have been a consistent Church and Synagogue attender for over twenty years and therefore have a wealth of knowledge of most Biblical Religions. I lived in Israel for almost a year and have been there twice so I can give students an wealth of background knowledge and experience behind the stories they are studying.
I am certified to teach Chemistry in the State of California and teach Chemistry and other sciences at Golden Valley High School. I've taught and tutored Science and Math and several other subjects for over 25 years.
I homeschooled both of my kids through phonics, arithmetic and reading through the 3rd grade. My daughter did so well that she skipped a grade and entered the private school one year ahead. That private school was Morrison Academy in Taiwan (98th percentile scores). Also in Taiwan, for 6 years I tutored Chinese kids mostly in phonics, reading and writing. Right now I'm tutoring a 6th grader and 3rd grader. They are making great progress.
Very encouraging! — My son did not want a tutor but Cory has done a great job encouraging him to spend more time on his assignments. My son has shown significant improvement with his Chemistry grade and now asks to have Cory help before tests. ...
