Hello, I'm Zac, a professional educator with a Masters in Teaching and five years in various classroom settings. I hold a valid Arizona Fingerprint clearance card and have professional references available upon request. I taught American and World History, Psychology, and mentored groups of students. I am experienced in creating connections with students and adapting material to various needs and learning styles. I have also worked with autistic, ADHD, and other special needs students. My philosophy is to empower students to work to their potential and towards their goals.

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.

ADD/ADHD

In addition to five years in a class room setting I have worked in a mentoring setting helping ADHD youth focus on positive behavioral choices and academic goals.

Autism

As a class room teacher with five years of experience I have worked with multiple levels of functionality. I have successfully motivated and engaged students to work to their full capacity and provided guidance and accommodation to facilitate success.

Public Speaking

As a full time teacher and project facilitator I have had the opportunity to speak in front of multiple groups and teach students to speak fluently and confidently in public.
