Steven Corley

Academic Tutor


For as long as I can remember, I have been investigating and discussing math and science. I was born and raised in Asheville, North Carolina by parents that were both engineers. They instilled in me a natural curiosity about the world and a desire to explain how things function. As early as 8th grade, I helped my classmates understand course material when it came naturally to me.

My instinct to teach held through high school classes, where I hosted large group tutoring sessions in physics, chemistry, and calculus to complete problem sets. Occasionally this would show up in class and I would, upon the request of the teacher, informally teach material during class time.

With a growing interest in science and no desire to specialize, I majored in Physics at North Carolina State University, where my passion to teach continued to emerge. In college, I spent many hours helping friends through their physics and math course work. After graduating with minors in math and economics, I turned towards the mountains and spent two winters in Vail, Colorado instructing skiing and snowboarding.

One thing I have learned in my years of teaching is that no two students understand the subject matter in the same way. Working 1-on-1 with a student allows me to find the best and most effective way to teach the material. I aim to discover the strengths of all my students and build on those abilities toward more challenging problems and concepts.

I am also working towards a Masters Degree in Theoretical Physics at SFSU with plans to pursue a Phd. In my free time, I spend countless hours playing soccer, skiing, and studying.
