About Cody W.

I have experience with writing books and essays, but also poetry. I have published one anthology of poetry entitled "America vs. America." I can help you form your thoughts on paper and have them grammatically sound so that they flow well.

About Cody
With my two Bachelor's degrees in Music Composition and Technology, I began tutoring students in piano, voice, and composition as it was part of my training. I also have experience writing and editing essays, books, and more for several independent clients. I have experience writing my own books as well. I have written two so far, but am getting ready to write a third. I am a copious editor and can catch grammatical and other errors with ease. This is why tutoring in English would be great for me.
I thought I would add basic math for those school-aged children that are having a little trouble
with it in their classes.
Usually, I teach lessons in my home in Diamond Bar or online, but if the need arises, I could surely work out coming to the students' homes for one-on-one tutoring help. With me, most students click after a few lessons and understand what they couldn't in the classroom. I help the students by teaching in innovative ways that will catch their attention more than standard teaching methods. Students should consider me for I can make learning fun and never a chore!

*** Lesson Details ***
I use a wide variety of techniques to sing, play piano and other instruments. Techniques include straight vowel singing (no words) to test how long to hold notes, using color to help people sight read, using improvisational techniques in order to play jazz, rock, classical and many other styles of music.
I use what they student has under his or her belt as a starting point to see what lessons we could start them on.
I also assist with online lessons to make transportation a thing of the past. If you've got a webcam or Skype, I can do long-distance lessons with you! So, I am here to help!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Alesis Recital Keyboard
Music sheets
Web cam
Mac computer (MacBook Pro)
Finale music notation software to help in composition and theory lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music paper for away lessons.
Finale for composition and music theory lessons.
Can use macbook for more elaborate teaching or demonstration if need be.

*** Specialties ***
I do teach classical composition with specialties in ensemble and chamber music. I also specialize in songwriting for pop and other media.
I teach voice and vocal techniques of sacred choral and vocal music.
I teach classical and jazz piano and improvisation. I also have the distinction in being able to teach students with special needs or learning disabilities as I have a mild form of cerebral palsy and understand what students with special needs go through.

Reviews from Others:
Gohar S. Said: Cody is a great teacher - my daughter loves learning piano now (it was difficult to convince her before).

As this is basics of English for beginners i would start with English grammar the first topic would be "Noun". A noun is a name of a person,place,animal, or thing.It is classified into Singular(single/one} for example book, cup, chair etc and Plural {more than one} for eg books ,cups,chairs etc.for the plural of most nouns add 's'.There are many other rules to make plural like add es ,some nous have different plural forms, we learn all of them as the classes progress.

I have now completed 10 courses and am feeling more confident with this language. Through lessons with Prajakta, I am now able to better understand Hindi. She covers a lot of material within each session to ensure you get the most out of her classes! These past 10 weeks have been such a great learning experience for me and am looking forward to additional classes.

Prajakta is a great teacher! My son has been taking Hindi lessons once a week for the last 1 year with her. Over the last year we have seem him understand pieces of our conversation and ask questions about the words he didn't understand. This is a huge step forward for him, because earlier he didn't seem interested in Hindi at all.
