Bio

Hi There!

My name is Cody F. and I love tutoring, especially in math and science. I graduated from The Gatton Academy of Math and Science at Western Kentucky University, named the number one public high school in the nation by Newsweek.

Hi There!

My name is Cody F. and I love tutoring, especially in math and science. I graduated from The Gatton Academy of Math and Science at Western Kentucky University, named the number one public high school in the nation by Newsweek. While there I took extensive college coursework in math, physics, chemistry, biology, and the humanities while also completing my high school education. After graduating I began my undergraduate education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Massachusetts. At MIT I pursued a degree in mathematics and computer science before moving to SF to teach at a coding academy in SOMA. I loved teaching in San Francisco so much that I decided to stay!

During this time I have acquired great experience in tutoring and teaching. I have a total of 8 years of experience tutoring mathematics, particularly calculus. I also have 5 years of experience tutoring in the sciences, such as biology, chemistry, and physics. My experience has come in the form of private, one-on-one tutoring with students ranging in ages from 7th grade through adult learners, college-level review courses, and even teaching SAT prep courses.

My students find me very relatable, and I interact and speak to them as my peers, which I find to be really beneficial to their learning. I look forward to working with you in the future! Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have!

**Please inquire about my special rates regarding entire math course tutoring packages! A great alternative to an after school program for middle or high school students looking to refresh or get ahead, and a great way for college students to prepare for CLEP exams or study for upcoming courses!**

I first took calculus as an advanced sophomore in high school and score a 5 on AP Calculus BC exam. Since then I have tutored calculus at both the AP and college level for about 5 years. It is the subject that I tutor most often and am strongest in. I have also designed and taught calculus review courses for top colleges in the Boston area. My most recent AP student had a very weak grasp of the material just a couple months before the AP exam, but after working with me was able to score a 4 on the AB version of the exam. I've also helped college-level students turn their grades around from failing to Bs and As.

Great tutor

Cody was very helpful with my Python course. I would highly recommend him. He helped me understand the course so I was able to get a good grade. He was patient and explained things very well.

Brandon , 1 lesson with Cody

Knowledgeable, patient, articulate, clear tutor

Our son is learning a great deal, and he is better focusing his preparation and studying efforts, as a result of working with Cody. He also seems to be thinking about everything in a more organized, disciplined manner - everything is clearer to him.

Janis, 3 lessons with Cody

Reliable and Efficient SSAT Tutor

He's very reliable, and efficient. He's working with our daughter who finds his teaching style, easy to digest. He has good communication if there's changes in schedule, and flexible with our teaching needs.

Maitreya, 8 lessons with Cody

Patient Tutor

He taught me how to graph sine graphs. He was very patient and slowly went through the process. He made sure I understood and was very open to questions. Overall he is a good tutor.

Jagu, 4 lessons with Cody

Patient and extremely knowledgeable

My daughter is taking Trigonometry/Pre-Calclus and was needing some extra help with grasping concepts and graphing. Cody was kind, courteous and very personable. We look forward to continuing to work with Cody

Tia, 2 lessons with Cody

Helped a lot!

Cody helped my son a lot with his algebra, he is a really great tutor. Cody makes the lesson easier to remember.

Erika, 2 lessons with Cody

Really great knowledge of BC Calculus!

Cody is very knowledgeable in Calculus. He requested information on what was already covered and the areas help was needed, so the session was productive right from the start. Would defiantly recommend Cody!

Laura, 1 lesson with Cody

Very easy to talk to and listens well. Very knowledgeable.

In one session, Cody was able to get my son on track and motivate him, give him confidence, and review all the information he needed to cover.

Kathy, 1 lesson with Cody

Great tutor

Cody was very helpful. I understood the material, and if I didn't understand a part, he'd explain it for me so that I'm able to understand. I got to finish my work the day I wanted to finish. He is very patient, helpful, and easy to work with. He was there on time, and it was easy making an appointment with him. He was available and helped me with everything.
