I am very impressed with Corey. There is not a statistical operation that he didn't know how to solve. When I was looking for a tutor, I was very desperate to get help. Therefore, it could have been Mickey Mouse because because I did not checked his background. He has not disappointed me thus far. I think the world of Corey! My grades went up from "D"s to a high B's and A. Corey is very patient and he is very thorough. He showed me not only just to work my statistical problems but also the best use of my scientific calculator. I do not regret choosing him as my tutor. Corey answer my questions promptly through his email, and he is very punctual on his appointments. I highly recommend him.
I could not be happier about my session with Corey. He was punctual and extremely prepared. He certainly knows the subject matter well and was able to walk me through problems step-by-step in a way I could easily understand. I'm happy I found Corey and hope to continue working with him throughout the rest of my semester.
Mr. Corey was very patient and knowledgeable, and made things easy to understand. I will definitely use him in the future for any math courses I need assistance with.
Lesson went very well and she was so thankful they worked through almost all of her homework during the session.
Corey is doing an excellent job of tutoring our son in AP Calculus. He is patient and thorough in explaining concepts and reviewing problems. He is prompt and professional. We would highly recommend Corey as a tutor.
Corey gave Math lessons (mostly in Trigonometry) to help my daughter prepare for her ACT exam. He was very prompt, well prepared and soft spoken. He goes slowly but ensures that the student thoroughly understands what he teaches. His handwriting and the pictures he drew during the sessions to explain the concepts were quite remarkable. He is very organized and shares his schedules in advance so that you can plan accordingly. I wouldn't hesitate to make use of his time going forward.
I read very good review about Corey before signing my daughter with her - and I am glad I did! Corey is very patient, knowledgeable and he not only helps my daughter with her homework, he explains maths concepts the way a 9th grader will understand. My daughter is very happy have him as a tutor and always looking forward to tutorial with Corey. My girl meets Corey once a week. She will continue taking tutorials with Corey. I have strong maths and science background and I tutored my girl all the way until grade 9, when I decided to get her a tutor due to changes in my work schedule. I tried a few tutors, but Corey has proven to be the one my daughter enjoys. Neither my daughter nor I have any complaints at all about Corey. What a great tutor. Please keep it up.
I was looking for someone that would help my daughter bring her grade up, have a better understanding of what she is working on, and be comfortable with math, not just get by. I could see the lightbulb going off when she was working with Corey and I could sense her confidence level improve like never before when working on math. We are both looking forward to working with Corey.
This is the first time we have felt completely comfortable with our math tutor. Corey began preparing for my son's first lesson several days before they actually met. Corey is able to assess his student's ability in order to find the correct "starting point." He is meticulous in his methods and patient to a fault. We feel good about the difficult and fast paced course we are enrolled in thanks to Corey's help. This is an updated review. After 10 lessons with Corey we continue to be very pleased with our son's progress in math. Communication between Corey and our son is excellent. Sessions always begin on time, not a moment is wasted and as a result, my son is seeing positive results.
Our first lesson with Corey went fantastic. Coming into the session -- we both were very unsure of where we were at and what we needed to accomplish. After our first session we feel a lot better about statistics. We both appreciated that Corey guides you to the answer vs. just giving you the answer. His approach will lead us to preforming better in the class. Thank you!
I came into the tutoring session with no background in statistics, and Corey patiently and methodically worked through various problems, calculations, and concepts with me until he was sure I understood. Even though I was embarrassed by how little I knew, Corey immediately put me at ease. He helped me to understand the concepts in 'layman's terms,' and wrote everything down so I could refer to his notes later if I needed to. He definitely knows his stuff, and I would recommend him to others- great tutor!
Corey is great to work with, works through the whole problem, makes sure you understand before leaving. He always asks if I have any questions. He is very intelligent!
Corey is a very patient and calming tutor. He knows his subject so well that that in itself instills confidence in his students. He left my daughter with detailed notes that she could refer back to when needed.
Corey is EXTREMELY helpful and patient, a character trait a person must possess when tutoring Algebra. Corey took the time to explain everything and that really helped when it was time for me to take my test. I kept trying to work the problems "my way" and I kept hearing Corey's voice explaining to me the correct way to work out problems. I am taking an accelerated Algebra class and wasn't catching all of the concepts, Corey's tutoring helped A LOT. I would DEFINITELY recommend Corey as a tutor and I am sure I will be utilizing his services in the future for my other classes in his areas of expertise. GREAT TUTOR!
Corey is a great tutor. He explains everything very clearly an makes it easy to understand. I was struggling in my statistics class because I missed several classes, but after meeting with Corey I had a much better understanding of the subject and I'm feeling confident going in to my final exam. Thanks Corey!
Corey is very flexible with his schedule and always shows up on time. He goes through every problem very carefully and makes sure that you understand what he is doing at each step. He is very helpful and makes calculus look easy!
Corey is very clear, thoughtful, patient and encouraging. We are so glad to have had him as a tutor, as our daughter even after the first lesson was smiling, and feeling more confident. She appreciated Corey's step by step, straightforward approach very much. Over the year Corey clearly explained and helped our daughter work through each concept, as well as occasionally helping with a different subject too. We very highly recommend him.
Corey is such a great tutor and I have been extremely impressed with him. He is extremely patient and ensures that the topic being covered is fully understood by the person he is assisting. Unlike many teachers, he is able to explain the material in a way that is easier to grasp. I look forward to more sessions with Corey and highly recommend him as a tutor!
Corey has been tutoring my daughter for the past several weeks in Calculus II. She says that he is the best tutor she has ever had for several reasons. He explains the material so well that she completely understands it by the end of the session. She says that he comes completely prepared for the session according to her syllabus. She said, "I can't believe how much of his own time that he puts into this." She is so happy with him, and we both highly recommend him! My daughter made a 94.4 on her calculus II test! She never could have done it without Corey's creative and patient tutoring. He continues to go above and beyond outside of the tutoring time to prepare for her sessions. We are forever grateful!
My daughter is a high school junior taking pre-calculus. Math has never been her strong suit, and pre-calculus has been very difficult for her. We tried large tutoring centers, but the instructors were not knowledgeable about pre-calculus and it was a waste of time and money. Corey knows his stuff and makes sure that my child learns it well. I highly recommend Corey as a math tutor for any level!
Corey has tutored math for two of my high school children, with excellent instant results. His notes are precise and neat, as well as his face-to-face interactions. His calm demeanor keeps students' nerves and tension at bay so learning is achieved most efficiently. No longer are we nervous for an upcoming test, in fact, we are anxious to see the great scores! My son has not has a test score below 92% since his meeting with Corey, and to quote my son after a recent session, "It feels so good to meet with him, now I KNOW I understand what I'm doing."
Cory is Great! He could not be more patient! He is very prepared ahead of time and then follows up with questions for review. He wants to help you succeed and will work hard to do his part. He is professional, prepared, and patient. I can't say enough good about the energy and effort Cory will put forth to help you.
I struggled in statistics and at the beginning of the class did not have a tutor and was performing poorly in the class. I went to tutoring about twice a week and it certainly helped! He helped me organize my notes and keep me organized in order to improve my math. Also he created study guides for me that we would complete that were just like my assignments from my professor! I ended up getting a B in the class by a miracle! Couldn't have done it without his help. Great tutor... patient and has great and organized notes.
I enlisted Corey's help in preparing for the GRE, having not taken any math in quite some time and needing a significant level of refreshing. He was very patient with me and was great about striking a balance between getting me to ask the right questions to solve problems myself and explaining step by step where needed. He was also very good about encouraging me when I would get one right on my own or gently redirecting me when I was off track, increasing my confidence along the way. I was only able to meet with him for three sessions due to time constraints on my part, but even in that relatively short amount of time, I felt much more prepared and confident to tackle the GRE thanks to Corey's exceptional tutoring skills. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to better prepare for the GRE.
Corey is a great tutor! He is very knowledgeable in the mathematics field. I like the way he breaks things down into steps so I can understand them better. He is also very encouraging while allowing me to attempt problems on my own first. This is the most helpful because it forces me to struggle with the problem first rather than simply watching him solve the problem. I recommend Corey to all of those struggling with calculus and other related fields.
I was very impressed by Corey D. He was on time, helpful and knew what he was talking about. He gave extra practice problems for me to work on and he knew how to explain things very well. He was very patient with me and leaves you with great notes! I highly recommend him!
Last summer I took physics 1 and 2 back to back. I came into physics 1 with very rusty math skills. I was 25 and had not had a math class since high school. My algebra was very weak and I was having trouble keeping up with the fast pace of the summer course. After I failed the first test I decided to get some help. I went to two other tutors before meeting Corey. To be honest I was doubtful that I could even regain my footing at this point and I considered dropping the class. The turnaround I made with Corey was drastic. After 2 sessions with him I received a 79 on my next test. I went on to make high B's on my last two tests in physics 1 (far exceeding my expectations) and then made solid B's all through physics 2. I am now utilizing Corey's expertise in calculus as I am taking it for the fall semester. Corey is very slow and methodical in his instruction which is excellent for someone like me. He has a very firm grasp on physics and many different types of mathematics. He will patiently show you each step of a problem algebraically and make sure you understand before he continues on in his instruction. The force diagrams he drew in physics along with the problems he worked were great to refer back to as examples because he has extremely neat handwriting and writes in different colors so you can differentiate between different steps. This is really beneficial when it comes to physics because you need to visualize the situation before you can even begin with the math. Corey has gone out of his way to work me into his schedule quite a few times and is usually very flexible when it comes to meeting locations. Based on my experience with Corey so far I'd say he is the last tutor you will ever need to look for when it comes to physics, algebra, or calculus.
Corey is very hard-working, always on time, and a great mentor. He explains each and every problem thoroughly in a very effective way. He tutors me for chemistry and every session Corey brings his own "Do You Remember" exercises and reviews for me to complete at home for extra practice. After every session I leave feeling like I understand everything that I needed help with from the beginning. If you are a slow learner or fast learner, Corey is great at getting the problem across and explaining it. I highly recommend him!!
I recently took a Junior level statistics summer school class at UT Austin and found that I needed a great deal of help. One of my friends told me about Corey so I decided to contact him and work with him at minimum once a week - best decision ever! He definitely helped me raise my grade from a B to an A in such a short amount of time. After tutoring with Corey I continued to make straight A's and excel in the class (students in my class were even beginning to ask me to help them!). Corey is a very patient, nice and understanding tutor. He always made himself available to meet with me and it was very convenient. If you need a tutor I recommend Corey - he's by far the best!
Corey tutored my daughter in Physics, a class that she was failing because she didn't understand the material. By the time we arranged for tutoring, it was less than two weeks before her final. Corey made himself available numerous times to work with her, including nearly four hours the evening before her final. He also took efforts to find out what she needed to know for her final, where her weak areas were, and formulated plans and problems for her to work on in addition to the problems she already had. He patiently explained concepts she didn't understand, focusing in on those that were the most difficult for her. She liked him very much; he has a patient and gentle demeanor, and she felt he was very supportive of her. He gave detailed feedback after each lesson, stressing her strengths and pointing out where she still needed work. I would recommend him most highly for any tutoring subject to which he is knowledgeable. If we need tutoring in a subject that he is qualified for, I would definitely use him again.
Corey has done a great job tutoring my teenager. He is patient and explains everything very well. He really understands the subject and does a great job teaching. My teenager was failing an AP statistics class and after a two hour session with Corey, she was able to retake an exam and bring her grade up to a high B. Corey even emailed her some extra practice problems! He has worked to be flexible with her schedule and has helped her out several times. I would highly recommend him.
Corey and I have met for 3 sessions and he has really helped me learn Chemistry very well. He is very prompt in answering any questions I have and is always prepared with extra information and questions for me to solve during our review session. He is never late and is able to help me answer my homework questions with full knowledge of the subject. Corey helped me prepare for my first test which I received a A and am overly excited! I hope to continue working with him this semester because so far he has helped a lot.
My 16 year old was in danger of failing a semester of AP Algebra 2. It came down to the final exam. We met with Corey for a couple of review sessions in order to help my son prepare for the final. Corey is very patient and methodical. My son posted a solid score on the final which pulled his semester average to a passing grade. Will definitely use Corey in the future. Thanks!
Excellent, Excellent tutor! I do not have enough words to praise Corey for his outstanding work and professionalism. This was my daughter's very first experience and it was outstanding for her. Corey was above and beyond patient. He came so very prepared that not a minute of his tutoring was wasted. Every example he provided for Kristina was explained in detail where she truly understood the material. Corey made her feel so very comfortable,that she was not the least bit hesitant to ask any questions. What I loved about Corey was that he had Kristina do some of the problems. She actually did them and understood what she was doing,which proved how well he taught her. Kristina had to take her physics test on Monday morning. She left for school so confident and prepared for her test. Corey is a true asset for WyzAnt. I definitely will recommend him to any of my friends that need a tutor. I will continue to call Corey going forward for any tutoring my daughter may need. Again, nothing but praise for Corey! Kristina and I had a great experience.
Katie is enjoying her tutoring sessions with Corey. She likes his professional demeanor and his way of teaching her. She feels like she is learning the material and is understanding it, but then when it is presented differently on the test is where she is having problems. She likes how he quizzes her on the material and makes her work problems. He has been fairly flexible working with Katie's schedule, too. We had another tutor for Katie that just disappeared, so we feel very fortunate to have found Corey. We only wish we had started with him sooner.
Corey is a very well spoken person. He articulates the material well and makes it easy to understand. He is always a little early if not exactly on time. Usually when I study for a test I make myself do all of the problems my teacher assigns which is usually at least 60-80 problems per section about 7-8 sections per test. All I did with Corey is practice problems with him after he saw my homework and I made a 91 on my test! If you're looking for a tutor that is patient and is really willing to take his time and show you something over and over if you don't understand it, Corey can help!
When selecting a tutor for my daughter I was very concerned about her experience. I didn't want her to feel as if she was somehow at fault for needing help. Corey was extremely patient, and very carefully reviewed her current knowledge to understand where focus was needed. He engaged quickly with my daughter, and she was giving "thumbs up" after the first session, indicating that she already felt an improvement in her understanding. At no time did he "talk down" to her or make any negative comments regarding her skill set.
In addition, I was surprised to see Corey assigning homework, to reinforce the subjects covered during the tutoring session which ensured that the areas that they covered were understood fully, or so they could review if she was unable to complete the problem. He was also very concerned about my feedback, to ensure that I was getting the information that I needed to make informed decisions about additional tutoring, what we should plan for upcoming finals, and ensure that my daughter had the best experience possible. I would highly recommend Corey to anyone looking for mathematics or physics tutoring.
It's been a pleasure to deal with Corey and we can highly recommend him to others. He's very accommodating and willing to schedule lessons when they would be most convenient and useful. He didn't just stop by to help out with homework problems; instead, he diagnosed what was going on and then pro-actively developed a strategy to help our student succeed. After each lesson, he provides detailed feedback to both parents and student, and he's consistently positive and encouraging in his remarks. This helps to keep parents in the loop and makes it easy for the student to feel good about the process. Over the course of a six-week period, we’ve seen a dramatic improvement in grades that was much better than we expected or thought possible. So as I said, we can recommend Corey: he works smart and gets results.
As parents, we especially liked that he would stop to check and make sure our daughter was understanding what he had just gone over.
Good tutor! I had a low C in the course when I started with Cory and ended the course with a 95% on my final exam. Thanks.
Corey was a wonderful tutor for my son, who was struggling with Calculus. His calm and patient manner was a big influence on my son, who began to approach the subject matter in the same way. I saw my son's confidence increase, even after the first session! Corey was also very accommodating, allowing us to schedule sessions around other school activities and to schedule extra session before major tests. I highly recommend Corey's tutoring for anyone who thinks they can't master the subject!
We have used a number of math tutors over the last two years and Corey is by far the best tutor we have encountered. He is a professional tutor with years of experience, not just a college student or recent graduate, and that experience makes such a difference. His professionalism shows in his preparation for the session, the extensive reports he provides after each session, his reliability, and the tenacity and patience he exhibits. While my son resisted getting a tutor, once he started working with Corey, he never complained, realizing the benefits of the tutoring sessions. But the bottom line is my son's grades on tests improved dramatically!
