What is Coriolis?

Coriolis is the private business of Joe Minato. I provide these services and more.

Sometimes I call myself, "The Coriolis Institute for Authentic Education." That is a dream I have.

Smart City Learning Cafe

I host the Smart City Learning Cafe, a free, drop-in high school tutoring every Wednesday during the school year 7 - 9 pm, Fat City Cafe, Multnomah Village Portland Oregon.


I lead star parties for the public and small private groups. I advise help with a Youth Astronomy Club.


I tutor physical science and math at the high school and college levels.

Teacher Training 

I offer continuing education and coaching for science teachers at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.


"Joe Minato is one of the most incredible teachers, thinkers, humans, and student-centered advocates who I have ever worked with."
