Cory Zacker is the Director of Admissions & Outreach for Fusion South Bay. A native New Yorker, Cory left the Big Apple for the sunnier climes of Southern California in 2014 and she’s so glad she did! She received her B.A. in Communications from Adelphi University (summa cum laude) and spent 11 years in the advertising industry.
A parent herself, Cory witnessed up-close the frustrations that families experience when children are struggling to meet their educational potential. After ten years of advocating for her own son as well as serving on the Board of Directors of a private special education school, Cory formed her own tutoring agency in New York City. She saw how the one-on-one teaching model helped students not only learn difficult material, but gain confidence as well. Her experience as both a parent and an education professional made her a perfect match for Fusion.
Cory is a devoted yoga practitioner with teacher training in Ashtanga and kids’ yoga. She has taught yoga and meditation to children ages 6 – 16, always reminding them that the same skills they use on the mat can be used at school and home.
Cory has written articles on education and parenting for Life in Action magazine and the Huffington Post.
