Degrees and Certifications:
Joel Cormany- Math- I have a wife who teaches Tech Ex. at Indian Hill and I have three children. Having my own children in Grand Blanc Schools has helped me understand the amount of work that families go through in supporting their child’s learning.
I was born in Lima, Peru and then lived overseas in Honduras until I was five years old. My first language was Spanish and I am sad to say that I have forgotten most of it but I remember the early difficulties I had in school only speaking Spanish and starting to learn English.
Since 2001 when I graduated from Cedarville University I have worked in the Inner-City, a private school, and then Grand Blanc Community Schools (Since 2008). I have tutored students since 2001, one on one and have grown in communicating math to a variety of grade levels from Kindergarten through College. Most of my tutoring has been with middle school students. Since 2014 I have done group tutoring sessions in August to help jump start students into math concepts right before the school year (reaching over 100 students each year). As I prepared for these classes it helped me to grow in communicating the content.
During the summer I really enjoy taking the time to relax and grow as a teacher. I have read several books on Google, A book on changing areas of weaknesses, and two on the brain. The books on the brain and how we grow and think have not only been great for me as a learner but I know it will impact the students when they learn how they can grow their brain. I am looking forward to a great year working with you and your child.
