Shirin M. has far surpassed our expectations in a tutor. She is working with our 17-year old daughter in the very challenging subject of Calculus. Shirin had a tough assignment as a tutor because our daughter, who was taking an self-taught, online Calculus course through her high school, found out right before winter break that she had fallen close to two months behind in her class. This put her in the difficult position of catching up on more than what could be called a considerable amount of work before she would be allowed to re-enroll for the second semester. How fortunate we were that Shirin was available this very busy week of the year to offer our daughter 20 hours of individual tutoring (not to mention emotional support) for this daunting challenge! Shirin even took on this assignment while on her vacation week from her own full-time day job...wow! Shirin has been prompt to our sessions, professional, encouraging, patient, flexible with scheduling, and thorough in her tutoring. She knows not just how to do the problems herself, but how to teach our daughter to understand and solve the work on her own - this is a skill that not every tutor/teacher has. We are confident that between our daughter's determination to succeed and Shirin's tutoring, our daughter will achieve the goal of re-enrollment for her second semester.

My daughter has really benefited from working with Cornelia. Cornelia did a great job of figuring out what my daughter needed help with, and then was very clear and patient as they worked through. My daughter's understanding has improved significantly, and she has a better attitude toward math overall. I would absolutely recommend Cornelia to anyone!

"Math Tutor - Specializing in Algebra and Geometry"
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. ... More
Dr. C. has been my calculus tutor for the past month, and so far, my experience with him is invaluable. I can assure that the knowledge I have gained from him through proofs and multiple practice problems profoundly enhanced my understanding of calculus. On his part, Dr. C. comes prepared with necessary concepts and problems that he believes will be taught and emphasized in class. Not only does he know the material well, but he also reveals little tips and tricks to solving problems, especially difficult ones that can appear on tests or quizzes. You won't regret taking lessons with him, I guarantee.
