Hi! My name's Cody. I have a degree in civil engineering and I worked in that field for eight years. I'm now attending UT Dallas to get my certification as a high school physics teacher. I've already completed my state testing for proficiency in physics and math, so I am definitely competent in those subject areas.

I really LOVE science in general, but my main subjects of focus are physics and engineering, plus the math that supports them, such as algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. I like to present core concepts in a visual manner and apply them to real world experiences. Personally, that helps me understand the concepts best.

I'm very willing to work with parents to find an arrangement that works for everyone involved. My goal for every session is to ensure that both student and tutor are satisfied with our progress.

Please give me a shot!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Chemistry

In pursuing my certification to teach High School Physics, I have also tested (and passed) the criteria for Chemistry proficiency.

Civil Engineering

I earned a bachelor's of science in civil engineering from the University of Texas at El Paso (December 2003) and worked as a field engineer in an engineering consulting firm for over eight years.

Physics

My career experience as a civil engineer and my academic pursuit of teaching physics has given me an understanding of both real-world applications and academic theory.

Sewing

I have been an avid costumer since 2003 and sew all my costumes. Some are recreations based off of fictional sources, while others are original concepts. Although I do not regularly participate in costume contests, I have won the "Best Craftsmanship" award at Anime Expo (a convention with approximately 40,000 attendees).
