About Cortney

Geology can be fun! Let me teach you techniques to break down, understand, and remember complicated geological concepts. Together, we'll assess your specific needs and develop a plan of study built around your learning style; depending on your preferences and requirements, we'll utilize hands-on activities, visual aids, video documentaries, popular science texts, and scientific papers to enhance your earth science knowledge.

I have several years of teaching experience to include three years as a graduate teaching assistant for two different state research university geology departments and two years helping to developing curricula for online health coaching and wellness programs. My previous students have found that major geological concepts become simple when walked through step-by-step using basic reasoning skills. Send me a message with your goals, including any specific topics you'd like to review, and I'll get back to you with ideas. When we study geology, we start unraveling the world around us!

Additional qualifications include:
- NSF Graduate Research Fellow in Geoscience
- Publication in peer-reviewed scientific journals
- Presentation at scientific conferences
- Coursework at UNC-CH, NC A&T, Duke, ECU, NCA&T, NCCU, WTCC, WCC, FTCC
- Bachelor's degree from Duke; master's from NCCU (May 2017)
- Research focusing on statistical analyses of hydrology-seismicity relationships in the ETSZ
