Bio

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...

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!

All tutoring takes place at the Cockeysville Library. I also offer online tutoring, so please ask if you are interested. If you have found me during a WyzAnt search for tutors, be sure you have selected either "online" or "local" in the side bar! In addition to the hourly published rate, WyzAnt will add a 9% processing fee.

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.

Tax Accounting

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.

Let me help you in your high school or introduction college-level Statistic class! I have taught an Introduction to Statistics class for many, many years. It is not unusual for students to find the concepts challenging. Let me help you!

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

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.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

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,

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!
Calculus,

Calculus

If you need help differentiating or integrating polynomials in Calculus, then don't hesitate to contact me. A tutor can give you the opportunity to ask those questions your teacher didn't cover in class. Bring your homework and recent tests/quizzes to me and together we will unlock the mystery!
Geometry,

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,

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.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

You will need a strong base in Algebra to be successful in your College Algebra, Precalculus, and/or Trigonometry class. Whatever you class is called, I can help. I have helped hundreds of students succeed in this class. I would love to help you, too.
SAT Math,

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!

Logic

I currently teach Logic as part of my course load at the University of Baltimore. For the past three years I have tutored students from Towson University's MATH100, 105, and 205. Are you struggling with truth tables, funny looking symbols, and word problems that make your head spin? I've helped many college students succeed in their logic courses.

Are you struggling with truth tables, funny looking symbols, and word problems that make your head hurt in Probability? Let's get together and work through your frustrations. I can help untangle the jargon. I have lots of experience tutoring college students.

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!

Patient and kind

This is our second child who Cornelia has tutored and we are so pleased with her method! She is patient, kind, knowledgeable and very effective! We would definitely recommend her for math tutoring both for school work and SATs.

Diane, 4 lessons with Cornelia

Patient and positive tutor

My girls feel very comfortable with Cornelia and she is great at breaking down the problems in ways they can understand. She is positive and patient with both of them and their different learning styles.

Anne, 10 lessons with Cornelia

knowledgeable and helpful

She is very patient and makes learning math enjoyable. She helped my son with his math problems by suggesting he plan his approach to each problem which was very helpful. This allowed him to be able to do other problems on his own successfully and gave him more confidence in math. She was very punctual (in fact she was there early). Thank you very much, Cornelia. We would definitely call her again if needed.

j, 1 lesson with Cornelia

Wonderful and patient!! Great tutor 😊

Point slope form. Equation of a line. I feel confident going forward. 😊 She was fantastic!! The white board made understanding concepts easy. It was easy to access my homework for review!!

Sheryl, 4 lessons with Cornelia

Excellent SAT Tutor; very supportive and encouraging!

Practiced equation problems, substitution method; as well as working through word problems and how to increase speed. It was a very productive tutoring session. I highly recommend Cornelia!

Allison, 29 lessons with Cornelia

Well organized and knowledgeable tutor

Great job as part of a summer pre algebra review. The lesson started on time and covered a variety of topics. Tutoring is organized to help keep the student's skills sharp in the summer months.

Karen, 11 lessons with Cornelia

Knowledgeable and kind

Cornelia taught me Inverse functions. She was kind and helpful and answered all of my questions no matter what they were for math. She is a great tutor and I would recommend her to anyone needed math assistance

Julie, 7 lessons with Cornelia

Knowledgable and kind tutor

Cornelia was excellent-just what my son needed! He transferred schools mid-year and needed to fill in some gaps. He met with Cornelia a few times and ended the semester with an excellent grade and mastery of the material! I highly recommend.

Kelly, 4 lessons with Cornelia

Amazing tutor!

My daughter wishes she could be tutored by Mrs. Cornelia every day! She is very helpful and patient. Her techniques for teaching are extremely helpful with geometry.
