Zak is a great tutor, has an organized approach and knows his stuff. In addition he is a very agreeable gentleman. Highly recommend him!
You know how there are some people that just know how to explain things? It's more about their inherent personality than it is their background. There are some really smart people out there with impressive backgrounds, but that doesn't mean they know how to explain things. Zak, fortunately, is someone who can. He explained things to me in a few minutes that I hadn't fully understood after many minutes of instruction from someone else. He can also his adapt his style to your needs. Though he's been tutoring for a long time and through many iterations of software,and this has of course resulted in some strong opinions about the most efficient way to use the software (and he is most likely right), he still listens to you and how you think about the problem, and adapts accordingly. He watches you try to do it yourself in order to make sure you're really getting it. He checks in with you to make sure his style is working for you. He's extremely smart but doesn't make you feel stupid. He's equally comfortable on Mac or PC. He responds quickly to questions and seems easy to get ahold of, even evenings or weekends, which is really important to me. He's expensive but worth it, especially if you have short-term needs.
Zak was an excellent tutor, and very effective at teaching to meet your specific needs. He was very good and patient at responding to my questions, and also easy to reach via email. I have learned so much during our 3-hr tutorial for SketchUp, and highly recommend him to anyone!
I emailed Zak after a sleepless night trying to understand my Revit program. By the time I decided to use Wyzant services, I found I was in a panic mode - I needed to know my Revit program yesterday. Zak responded to my email quickly, set up a tutoring session within days, and at our first 3 hour meeting taught me more than I had gotten in all the time I had been trying to learn the program. I probably could have learned everything in the first two hours, but I had scheduled my first session for three, thinking I needed that extra time. I left his office feeling a LOT more confident in my skill level. Great investment.
