My teaching focus is on communicating ideas clearly and effectively with the student doing most of the talking. Of course, I am adaptable to student needs and goals. Whether you are preparing for an interview or a presentation for work, or just want to practice conversation and acquire some new vocabulary, I am here to help. I aim to provide a comfortable environment where you can build confidence and increase your fluency.
I began my teaching career in Barcelona, Spain in 2002, teaching Business English to consultants at Accenture. I spent a year in rural Japan teaching everyone from government workers to teenagers to retirees. Since 2004, I have been teaching in San Francisco, California working with students of all levels and backgrounds. In the past 9 years, my focus has been mainly Business English and I've worked with professionals and aspiring professionals from every field imaginable: from project managers to filmmakers.

Perfect! Cory is very good! He used cartoon images to help me learning the name of daily things.
Cory is a very friendly and helpful teacher. He shares a lot of useful information and the classes are always fun too. I feel like my conversation improved a lot!
As the Platinum Coordinator for St. Giles International in San Francisco, I worked closely with Cory Wees for more than eight years. During that time, I observed Cory’s capability in working with Business English students from all over the world. He demonstrated a consistent and dedicated work ethic, and he helped foster a positive and productive work environment among both students and staff.
In the Platinum Program, we often had students who were high-level executives, government officials and professionals of every field. Cory was always ready for the challenges these students presented and showed great resourcefulness in developing lesson plans tailored to meet student needs. As a result, student feedback was consistently positive.
It was a pleasure to work alongside Cory, and I can assure you that he will be very focused on helping students make progress in their general and/or business English.
This was a great introduction! I can already tell this is going to be super helpful for me and I'm excited to continue!
