About Zachary

For the past several months, I have been tutoring English at Modesto Junior College. I passed college level English with an A grade, and also received a recommendation to be a tutor. This last semester I was enrolled in beginning algebra, which I also passed with an A grade and have been tutoring this and lower level math in between English sessions. I have discovered just how much I enjoy learning and wish to share my passion with others. I've tutored grammar, organization, ideas and flow. My strong point, however, lies in the ability to make an essay flow. I also enjoy the pre-writing and brainstorming stage of the writing process. I have heard it said that writing is never done, it's just due, so I know there is always room for improvement. I often refer to tutoring as another pair of eyes and not so much a teacher because I know how intimidating it can be to be in a situation where one needs tutoring, so I'm always sensitive to the fact. I enjoy tutoring math because it is more black and white, you have rules and if you don't follow them, for the most part, you are wrong; English has many more grey areas and thus is more complicated. More than anything, I enjoy helping others, which is why I chose my major in the Social Sciences. I can provide references in math and English, as well as a reference from my current employer at Modesto Junior College in the Integrated Learning Center. You will find that I have strong integrity and feel a sense of duty to give my utmost at tutoring sessions. I have also have a very strong work ethic, learn quickly which styles are effective with different students and an excellent ability to store information. I am raising five children, thus I have much experience in dealing with children and understand that they learn differently styles and capacities for learning. I have a clean background which can be attested to by the fact that I am employed at Modesto Junior College; They require a background check before employment is established. However, I am also completely open and willing to take any additional background checks that are required of me. Thank you for considering me.
