About Cory

I am a college student who aspires to be a teacher. I enjoy helping students learn. Seeing a student succeed is a great feeling, and succeeding as a student is equally great. Every student has the ability to learn anything he or she wishes. I am committed to helping each and every student I work with learn whatever they need to in order for them to succeed. I have tutored students before in reading and essay writing. I have completed courses in Written Composition at the college level. I graduated high school with a 4.2 GPA and 27 college credits. I have a diverse amount of knowledge in the English field.

I always hated that boring class in school that made you wish you could leave before the class was over. I want students to get excited about learning. Communicating my passion for a subject with a student is my goal. I am committed to making any and every tutoring experience fun and enjoyable. I am a student myself, so I can relate to how a student feels when he or she wants to grasp a subject. I believe that being a student will allow me to better identify with another student.

I will use different methods to tutor a student, as different students are reached through different methods. I will make sure that the student is excited and challenged, but never overwhelmed or struggling with a lesson that I present to the student. I want both you and the student to be satisfied, and I encourage feedback on any lesson that I give. Please let me know if there is anything I can do that will help your student succeed.

Everyone can learn! I am committed to make learning a fun and rewarding experience!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I have completed Written Composition courses at the college level. I am an active reader and writer. I aspire to be an English teacher. I am currently enrolled in other English courses at the college level, which include English Literature and American Literature.

Grammar

I have completed written composition courses at the college level. I have tutored both adults and children in English grammar. I love grammar, and I believe it can be fun. I will work hard to make sure the student becomes interested in grammar, and wants to do well. I have a large amount of experience in the grammar field.

Literature

I have completed literature courses at the college level. I have experience with English (Brit.) literature, as well as American literature. My literature experiences range from Edgar Allan Poe to Shakespeare and "Moby Dick."

Public Speaking

I have taken public speaking courses at the college level. I have tutored other college students in public speaking. I have also tutored high school students in this field. My approach to tutoring for public speaking is to get the student to relax, and let his or her personality show.

No one can give your speech the way you can! I teach the student to make eye contact, to have confidence, and to be the best speaker they can be. I also use other public speaking techniques when guiding a student. I have given speeches for both students and teachers in at the high school and college levels.

Reading

I have experiences with different types of literature. This includes literature from different time periods, such as 13th century literature, as well as literature from different cultures (Brit. lit.). I have a vast experience with different works from a wide array of authors, including Edgar Allan Poe, Shakespeare, and Herman Melville.

Spelling

I have tutored middle school students in spelling. Having success in spelling is critical to having success in reading and writing. Comprehension is the key here! It is important for the student to learn a variety of words, and practice them to comprehend those words.

Vocabulary

I have completed English courses at the college level. English courses allow one to advance his or her vocabulary. I have tutored others in this field. I enjoy seeing people learn new words, and learn how to comprehend those words. Vocabulary is part of my English passion!

Writing

I have completed written composition courses at the college level. I also write short stories, and have three that are published. I have a passion for writing, which is fostered by a passion for the English language.
