About Cornelia

Do you need help in math? I am here to help! I am an experienced tutor and my favorite subjects are Algebra and Geometry! In addition, I have experience tutoring Elementary students, all levels of middle school math, and all levels of high school math up to Precalculus and Trigonometry. At the college level, I tutor all levels of Algebra and Statistics. I currently tutor students from all area private and public schools at all levels, including Gifted and Talented. I also tutor home schooled kids. When I'm not tutoring, I teach Algebra I and Algebra II to undergraduate students at Stevenson University and the University of Baltimore.

I can explain math concepts in easy to understands terms. I understand the different ways students learn and can use appropriate methods to ensure success. I have experience with all ages - elementary, middle school, high school, college, and adults returning to the classroom after a long absence. I love math, but I understand that many of my students do not! I can make math easier, and you may be surprised with some fun along the way.

I am available for either one-time refreshers - if you are preparing for a test, for example - or for weekly sessions that last the year, the semester, or a few weeks. Summer is a great time to get a refresher, or to prepare for the next math class. Let me know how I can help you!

Tutoring times are flexible. You can come to my home in Timonium or we can set up tutoring sessions at the Cockeysville Library. I also offer online tutoring, so please ask if you are interested.

I graduated with honors from Bryn Mawr College and earned my Master's Degree from the University of Baltimore.

You are good at math, perhaps you just don't know it yet.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra is my specialty! I meet hundreds of algebra students every year, and there is no "one size fits all" approach. So, if your algebra teacher seems to be speaking a different language, I can help. Don't wait. It will not get better. But with my help, you can succeed at Algebra I and you will be better prepared for Algebra II.

Algebra 2

If you struggled in Algebra I, but managed to "just get by," you need a tutor for Algebra II. A tutor gives you the advantage of one-on-one instruction of concepts. It really helps - just ask my students. Algebra may start to be fun!

Elementary Math

The building blocks of a solid understanding of math start at a very young age. Math occurs all around us and young minds are ready and able to grasp it! But, so many things can get in the way of math success... so let me help. Every child is good at math, perhaps he/she just doesn't know it yet.

Geometry

Geometry is different than Algebra - this could be good or bad depending upon your strengths. It is my job as your tutor to use your strengths to help you understand the concepts. I will also find your weaknesses and give you the tools you need to turn a weakness into a strength! It is time to get logical!

Prealgebra

If you don't "get" pre-algebra, you may find yourself struggling. Don't despair - it is never too late to learn the basics.

SAT Math

The one major problem with SAT math is that my advanced math students are so beyond Algebra and basic Geometry by the time they take the SAT that they have forgotten many of the concepts! So, let me remind you! If you are a High School Junior disappointed with your math score, it will just take some review of old material to raise that score. Let's work on it!

Tax Preparation

Do you want to learn how to prepare your own taxes? Why pay someone year after year to do your taxes? You can do it! To get started, I can help. I am currently a Tax Adviser with H&R Block so I am very familiar with tax preparation software. I will look at your tax situation and help you navigate the software so next year you can do it all by yourself.

Trigonometry

Many students are exposed to Trigonometry in Algebra II and Geometry classes. You will learn all about sin, cos, tan and more! Let me help you gain a strong knowledge of Trig. Next to calculus, this was my favorite class in High School!
