Zachary is concise, straightforward and brilliant in teaching and tutoring techniques. He's great with parents and students alike. In the very first session it was awesome to see so much work accomplished, and goals and ground work laid for success. Our family is so happy to have found a tutor who understands and cares about their student. Thank you Zachary & WyzAnt.
Zac has been mentoring our son, an ASU student, to keep him on-track and focused on his school work. Zac has shown incredible patience as he guides our son into better study skills, organization, and planning. Our son was resistant to any sort of help, but is now learning that he can do well in college if he paces himself and meets smaller weekly goals. We live out of state, and Zac has been an invaluable resource for us. We have peace of mind knowing that Zac is keeping up on our son's progress.
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.
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.
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.
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.
