About Cory

I've been an English and writing tutor on and off for the past ten years. I first started tutoring at Susquehanna University as a peer writing tutor in the library writing center. I quickly became the peer tutor coordinator and scheduled/managed the entire department. I took great pride in my leadership as well as the amount of growth we saw in many returning students. I graduated from Susquehanna University in 2008 with a 3.9 GPA and was awarded the Outstanding English Graduate award. From college I went on to work in many facets of the writing and publishing arena. From NYC, as a Book Publicist in the world's largest publishing company, to small-town Pennsylvania as an editor for one of my favorite childhood magazines. I have spent time as a product copywriter for large retail eCommerce websites, dabbled in advertising and have freelanced for local magazines and newspapers.

I believe my resume of writing and the past almost tens years of holding high-stake jobs are the best examples of my ability and sincere drive to tutor any student I encounter. I have recently tutored high school/middle school students in summer reading, creating test quizzes and thought-provoking short essay questions. I strongly believe it is my duty to help students fully comprehend the text by discussing symbolism, imagery and other literary techniques other than plot. I find the most success stems from desire and not just a passing grade.

I have experience in essay writing, reading comprehension and vocab as well as test-taking skills and SAT prep. I am available MWF after 5:30 pm as well as Weekends. My rate is 50$/hr for in-person tutoring sessions. I hope to hear from you soon!
