About Cody

I have taught all high school grade levels, and students of all ability levels. In my English courses, I focus on reading and writing skills, literary analysis, and creative writing. I am a patient teacher with an ability to logically move students forward through the process of content mastery. Having trained in college as a journalism major, I am also very proficient in proofreading, editing, revising, and researching, all of which are skills critical for success in any English course. I also have extensive experience working with English-language learners, especially those whose first language is either Chinese or Spanish.

I have taught or currently teach the following courses at the high school level: English I, English II, English III, and Journalism.

I am a certified English teacher in the State of Texas, and I have taught hundreds of students how to be successful in taking the STAAR EOC tests for English. This includes answering multiple-choice questions, and writing short-answer responses and essays. I have also taught summer school classes specifically for STAAR re-testers, and helped many pass a test after having failed the first attempt.

If you need help with your English class, in reading or writing, or simply want to be better prepared for AP courses or college, please contact me to set up an initial tutoring session. I have the knowledge, experience, and ability to help you become more capable and comfortable with anything English related. I have had great success with students from various backgrounds and abilities, and will be able to help you in your areas of greatest need. The payoff in teaching for me is to see my students progress in their skills and gain confidence in themselves.

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.

STAAR

I am a certified English teacher in the State of Texas (grades 8-12), and I have taught hundreds of students how to be successful in taking the STAAR EOC tests for English. This includes answering multiple-choice questions, and writing short-answer responses and essays. I have also taught summer school classes specifically for STAAR re-testers, and helped many pass a test after having failed the first attempt. For the 2015-16 school year, 82.5% of my students passed the STAAR English II EOC exam. Our school overall reached an 80+ percent passing rate, putting us in the top 25% in the state, with over 60% of our students in the low-SES category. Our school, International Leadership of Texas-Garland High School, earned in 2016 the maximum of seven distinctions from the Texas Education Agency.

Writing

I graduated from the University of Missouri with a Bachelor of Journalism, emphasis in Strategic Communication. I was a Dean's List recipient. I have also been an English and Journalism Teacher at International Leadership of Texas-Garland High School.
