About Cornelius

I am a Mechanical Engineer, but I have always been interested in teaching. I received Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Mechanical Engineering, then went to work for a major aerospace company. I went back to school and received a second Master's degree. During my time in school I tutored a lot and worked with volunteer science outreach programs. I co-taught some courses while I was in grad school. I also worked full time for tutoring companies and I have taught full time.

Math was always one of my favorite subjects. I love it. I have tutored math since undergrad. While working for a major professional tutoring company, I was specifically trained to tutor SAT and ACT math. I have scored a perfect score on the analytical (or math) portion of the GRE, the graduate school entrance exam.

I think most students can do math. However most students do not believe that themselves. The first step is to stop looking at it as this scary foreign subject that only few students can get. Only the variables in math are in Greek. The rest is in English. If you are willing to put in the work I can get you there. Contact me on this site and let's get started.

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.

GRE

I attended graduate school twice and took the GRE several times in preparation for that. My scores were consistently in in 90% percentile and twice I got a perfect score 800 on the quantitative or math portion of the test. I have informally and successfully coached students who were studying for the GRE.

Mechanical Engineering

I have three degrees in Mechanical Engineering. I have a Bachelor's degree from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Nigeria; a Master's degree from the University of Florida, Gainesville, FL and a Master's degree from Georgia Tech. I served as a teaching assistant for several mechanical engineering classes while I was in school and also taught and tutored mechanical engineering and other classes. I have practiced engineering in the field.

Committed and Awesome Tutor

My son is a freshman in high school taking College Algebra. He goes to a Magnet school that offers a challenging and VERY rigorous program. With 3 weeks left in the semester, I learned my son went from a 78 earlier in the semester to a 63/F. As a parent, I knew I had to find my son help ASAP. He was capable of being taught and carrying out the work. I also knew that my son just needed extra reinfo
