About Corban


Bio

My main goals are to make chemistry a little more predictable, and much less stressful for students, and to create chemistry materials for education that are useful to both teachers and students.

I’m 27, and graduated from college in December 2015. From August 2015 through June 2020, I taught AP Chemistry and Chemistry 1 at a public high school in Indiana. In my time there, students consistently scored at and above U.S. and global averages on the AP Chemistry exam. In June 2020, I decided to...

My main goals are to make chemistry a little more predictable, and much less stressful for students, and to create chemistry materials for education that are useful to both teachers and students.

I’m 27, and graduated from college in December 2015. From August 2015 through June 2020, I taught AP Chemistry and Chemistry 1 at a public high school in Indiana. In my time there, students consistently scored at and above U.S. and global averages on the AP Chemistry exam. In June 2020, I decided to seek online-work during COVID, and not to return to the classroom virtually or in person as a teacher for fall 2020. I have found that I love creating educational content, illustrations, and tutoring online, and I do not plan to return to formal teaching in a classroom.

In June 2017, I began writing AP Chemistry test questions on Albert.io. These are specifically aligned to the topics and learning objectives, and have rationales for why the correct answer is correct, and why each incorrect choice is incorrect. Since I’m constantly looking at the Curriculum and Exam Description (CED), this job has made me extremely familiar with the content that is on the AP Chemistry exam, and how questions are typically asked by the College Board. I have also written content for the NY Regents Chemistry exam with this company.
I was required to learn LaTeX at a very fast pace for the hiring process of this company, and I’ve been using it since then daily. I also began using Adobe Illustrator and other softwares to create my own diagrams, illustrations, and graphs related to chemistry at this time.

Since 2017, I have continued writing Chemistry and AP Chemistry content for Albert.io, and have free-lanced and worked part time in chemistry content development. I started working for Bakpax.com part-time in June of 2020, and started freelancing chemistry content for education on upwork in August of 2020.

I also began tutoring online in March 2020, and have found that the online-format has many benefits for students; it’s quick and easy to sh

knowledgeable tutor

Corban is great! I just started honors chemistry and he has been helfpul explaining the material, and he gave me practice questions so I could study for the test.

He was provided me with the resources to help me succeed and showed me easier ways to do things that made much more sense.

He was so understanding, patient, and always went the extra mile!

I came to Corban at pretty much my worst moment of the academic year. I was incredibly stressed about chemistry and receiving near-failing grades for the first time in my life. I was at my wits' end trying to teach myself what I needed to learn to barely pass my AP chemistry class, with little help from my actual teacher. When my mother found Corban E. on Wyzant, it was a literal gift from God. Corban became my chemistry teacher, for all intents and purposes. I learned more from our weekly hour-long sessions than I did from an hour of actual class five days a week. And from a 75 on a test and no understanding of the material at all, with Corban's help, I was able to reach perfect scores on several quizzes and tests, and end the year with a 95.5% overall average (an A). He was so understanding, patient, and always went the extra mile. I could tell that he really wanted me to succeed, more than anything, so his countless practice exercises and PDFs that he sent to me--on days we didn't have sessions--became an integral part of my study routine. I can say with the utmost confidence that Corban is one of the best tutors I have ever worked with, and he can help anyone, no matter how dire their situation, if they put in the work. Thank you so much for your help, Corban!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

He was very patient with me and explained everything thoroughly. I’m lucky to have found him. He messages back fast, and makes sure you understand everything before moving on.
