About Kori

Hi! My name is Kori and I am a staff accountant for a small CPA firm here in the city. I was born and raised in Rhode Island and got my degree in accounting at Rhode Island College. I am currently a grad student at Oklahoma State University studying for my MBA. I've been tutoring since I've been in school. I remember in elementary school helping other students learn long division after school hours. While working on my Bachelor's I was a paid tutor for the university. In my free time I find myself helping my military friends who are taking classes part-time understand their accounting coursework. I know it can be hard to understand some teachers when they explain things in abstract ways, so I try to help by bringing things back to Earth. I can explain things in real terms, so it's easier to understand. Let me help you! Hi! My name is Kori and I am a staff accountant for a small CPA firm here in the city.

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.

Accounting

I have my four year degree in accounting and I work for a small CPA firm in the city. I am also currently studying for my MBA.

Algebra 1

Algebra can be a tough subject for students to grasp because it is technically a new language, the language of math. It can look so foreign and confusing. I do my best to show students what each problem means in real world terms and I teach them how to translate and talk out each new problem.

Biology

When I was a freshman in high school my biology teacher saw potential in me and recommended me for a genetics research pilot program at the local university. I learned a lot in that program, including that day-to-day scientific research work is boring. I did, however, keep my love for biology and genetics and I stay updated on the latest advances in the field.

Geography

One of my favorite experiences in elementary school was winning the geography bee in 4th grade. I taught myself a song to help me learn all of the states in alphabetical order. I used flashcards to memorize all of the state capitals. And I had a sticker book that helped me to learn the flags for every country. My favorite flag design is still the oddly shaped Nepalese flag (aside from the American flag of course!).

Geometry

Geometry is one of those subjects that, if explained properly, can be understood by anyone. And because it is one of the few math subjects that people actually use as they get older, I think it's important for students to actually understand it instead of just being able to pass a test. Geometry is one of my favorite subjects because it is so easy to see how it is used in the real world. A picture can be drawn for every problem and an equation can be written for every picture!

Microsoft Access

I use Access on a daily basis as part of my job as an accountant. I have built databases and queries that link directly into Excel.

Microsoft Excel

I use Excel every day for my accounting job and for my own personal finances. I've taken plenty of Excel training courses and trained a handful of people myself. I can show you how to make pivot tables, graphs and formulas work for you!

Microsoft Outlook

I have been using Outlook since it was first launched. It has changed a lot over the years, but my regular use of it has kept me up to date. I can show you how to schedule meetings and send invitations, sync your calendar with external programs or devices, create mailing lists, and customize everything so that it works for you.

Reading

I started reading when I was 4 and I was into chapter books by 1st grade. I would often get into trouble as a kid for staying up all hours of the night with a book and a flashlight. I believe it is important for kids to learn to love books. They can be such a great source of entertainment and knowledge.

Swimming

I spent most of my Jr. High and High School years on a competitive swim team, the South County Seals. Our team went to the regional championships every year. In the last couple of years I was on the team I helped to teach the new 7-9 year olds proper stroke and kicking techniques.

Excellent tutor! Well worth the money! — Kori was very patient with me and my lack of accounting skills. She walked me through my homework problems and even provided example problems to help me better understand the material. She makes the material relatable by using real life situations and examples.
