A little bit about myself,
I am a 26 year old UCLA Biochemistry graduate who has been teaching and coaching math and science students for over seven years now. Above all else I believe in finding an outlet for one's creativity, and in learning the things that make people more effective in their everyday lives.
As a tutor I am successful because I truly understand where students get stuck during their thought process. I do not assume a student has prior knowledge of a subject, and do not ever pass judgement if a certain concept or skill has not been picked up along the way. I am friendly and very approachable and always encourage students to tell me exactly what they are thinking. I don't want to know what they don't understand, I want to know what steps they have taken right up to the point where they get stuck, so that we can adapt the thought process and move past the roadblock.
I also believe that while there many ways to solve problems, students are much better off learning the way is the most effective for the current issue at hand. For example, sometimes students will say "I like to do it this way," when working through an assignment. If it's not the most efficient way to do the exercise, or if it will make future concepts harder to learn, I show the student the more optimized way to do the problem, and tell them when and how it will help them in the future. If this means that I reveal a math shortcut a year early, that's okay with me!
Please feel free to contact me if you would like to schedule a lesson, or if you have any additional questions for me. A little bit about myself,

Minimum lesson is 90 minutes.
Cody is a really awesome tutor. He makes it easy to understand the material, even when it's really tough. I feel a lot better in my chemistry class because I'm working with him. He brings practice worksheets to his lessons too, which helps to prepare for tests and exams!
Cody was better at explaining concepts of chemistry to my son, than his actual teacher. He was very straight forward and gave a clear understanding of the concepts. I would highly recommend him to others.
This guy is a great tutor! He has been helping our son in Honors Biology, and his Honors Agebra 2 class. In just two lessons our son has gained a real confidence about taking tests and quizzes. There is a trick to what teachers ask, and Cody helps students see through the design of their tests. Highly recommended, if your student needs fast improvement, and test taking confidence.
Cody has been helping us for a few sessions now! My daughter is one of those students who is overly critical of herself and who is afraid to ask questions because she thinks she should know everything. She has only worked with Cody for a few sessions and she already feels completely comfortable asking him anything and everything about what she needs help with. Cody is very approachable and friendly, and I can tell that he genuinely has his students' best interests at heart. Highly recommended.
Cody is an extremely competent tutor who will always make every effort to squeeze in an extra session as needed. He has a zen-like calm to him and is a nice guy, too!
If first impressions are worth 1000 words than I have about 50,000. Extremely bright young man. Cody gets great satisfaction out of seeing people succeed. He will go the extra mile and then some to make sure you achieve your goals. Very patient and observant. He picks up on your learning style and ability. He then uses your strengths to formulate study and learning strategies that insure success. Website should be called codyant.
Cody has now successfully helped two of my children get into their dream schools for college! He is very enthusiastic and approaches every challenge with an "ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE" kind of attitude. He literally had the whole family celebrating before we had submitted the applications. His wonderful outlook and innovative methods make you think that your kid is going to get in, AND THEN THEY DO! I highly recommend Cody and his College Counseling program to any family who wants to take the stress and unknown variables out of the college admissions process. His services are truly invaluable!
Cody is a wonderful tutor. He arrives at each tutoring session with a positive attitude and I am amazed by his extensive knowledge on a multitude of subjects. I am impressed further by his patience and ease of explaining complex subject matter in a way that is easily understood. We feel blessed to have him!
Cody is helping my son freshman in HS with Honors Geometry! We have had two sessions and my son has gone from a D to a B on quizzes! Cody has gone back and filled in the blanks that were missing from the beginning of the year. He has also given tools to help with the fast paced class and also has helped define what the teacher is looking for on the tests. We will definitely be using Cody throughout the year!
Cody really knows his stuff, and it showed throughout the lesson. Great guy, very friendly, and he is excellent at making you understand the material.
Cody is an amazing tutor! UCI is notorious for it's difficult Chemistry classes, but Cody was able to convey the material in a way that was both easy to understand and memorable. After only an hour I knew how to do all the problems on my practice quiz, (an awesome feat considering it looked like another language when we started!) I highly recommend him to anyone who truly wants to learn!
Cody has been helping my 15 year old gain the foundational tools necessary to assist with his geometry class. He is patient, kind and supportive. He is very responsive, timely and dependable. I highly recommend him, although in doing so I risk making him so popular I won't be able to schedule him for my son!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
What can I say, I LOVE chemistry! It is a subject that most people dread when going through high school and college, but it comes to me more naturally than tying my shoes! As a tutor I show students the way that I see the world of chemistry, ultimately making a very abstract subject matter tangible for students to work with. Chemistry doesn't have to be hard and can actually be fun if taught the right way!
I am currently a college counselor, helping students brand themselves, find a college where they can be successful, and reduce the overall cost of college in the process.
I studied molecular genetics as part of my rudimentary coursework at UCLA. From the onset of Mendelian Genetics, to the more complex advancements in gene technology, I can help students approach genetics problems in a way that makes sense. Topics of interest include: pedigree analysis, karyotyping, meiosis and mitosis and genetic orders that result from nondisjunctions, genetic engineering, ethics and a variety of other topics as well.
I had an advanced physiological science class at UCLA that focused on metabolism and and nutritional pathways in the body. I also took 7 different biochemistry courses that covered metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins, as well as various trace elements that are required to optimize these processes.
Organic Chemistry is one of those topics that students tend to dread in college. My approach to learning and teaching O-chem is maintaining a positive attitude toward learning and a willingness to put in the time and effort to master a brand new chemical language! No reaction is inherently too difficult to comprehend, and with the right practice problems, students will start to see O-chem as an art more than a tedious science!
“Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.” -Anton Chekhov.
In addition to writing poetry and fiction, I enjoy collaborating with others on the process of their writing as well. I help students develop focus and clarity in their work, emphasizing that while there is no set formula for writing, it is possible to find and excel in one's own style.
