About New Coda

Based in Burlingame, California, New Coda was founded in 2012 by professional tutor Ryan Sigman. Working with middle school, high school, and college students in Burlingame, Hillsborough, Millbrae, San Francisco, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Atherton, Los Gatos, San Jose, Saratoga, Mountain View, Los Altos, and neighboring cities, New Coda tutors understand today’s educational landscape—from competition at public and private high schools to testing to the college acceptance process.

Offering test prep and academic prep in all subject areas, New Coda tutors use individually tailored approaches to complement each student’s unique goals.

Ryan has tutored professionally since 2006, and he created New Coda in the spring of 2012.  With experience working with more than a thousand students, he has cultivated his intuition for this industry and has adapted to changes in its workings.  Always excited to help his students feel comfortable and confident with their tests, he is extremely proud to watch his company grow and to serve his clients as best it can.

As the tutoring market began blossoming in San Francisco about nine years ago, I traded my corporate vocations for an opportunity to join a rising tutoring firm in the Bay area. While I enjoyed connecting with students, I found the firm’s pedagogy and materials restricting. I didn’t see tutoring as a one-size-fits-all approach catering to the lowest common denominator. Instead, I saw an opportunity to develop a boutique approach, where I could work one-on-one with each student, tailoring my teaching methods to each individual’s learning style and personality. From that idea, New Coda was born.
