About Cory

I have dedicated my life to education. I have taught pretty much every subject and I have worked with groups of children ages 5 to 18 in a wide variety of settings. My primary passions in the realm of education include outdoor education, history, and philosophy, but I also have extensive experience and skill with English and inquiry-based math and science.

For the past 7 years, I have worked as a classroom teacher at a small school in Woodinville, WA. As part of a passionate, professional, and dedicated teaching team, I have enjoyed learning about best practices within the progressive educational paradigm.

My educational philosophy and methodology is child-centered, inquiry-based, and responsive. My primary goal as an educator is to nurture the natural curiosity that exists within every child, while at the same time exposing children to new and wonderful ideas and helping them navigate the wide world of information.

My strengths as a English teacher and tutor stem from my intuitive understanding of the mechanics of writing and the principles of effective argument. I consider myself to be a talented editor and essayist, and I take great care in all of my written communication. Although I have the experience to teach reading and writing at all levels, my particular interests are best suited to middle and high school non-fiction.

In addition to specializing in Middle and High School social sciences, I have taught and tutored a wide variety of elementary level subjects, including math, inquiry-based science, and reader's/writer's workshop.

History and philosophy are two of my personal passions. Even when I am not teaching either of these subjects, I spend a considerable amount of time reading and thinking about the big questions of human existence and history. In a classroom setting, my love of these questions is clearly infectious, and I take great satisfaction in helping my students discover the wonders hidden in social science exploration.
