Bio

Mathematics is my specialty, but my interests spread broadly and deeply. My tutoring method is a combination of Polya and AVID, I use problem solving and develop methods to guide students to the answers. I take pleasure in working, let me work for you.

I took and passed 9 AP tests in high school, earned a National AP Scholar reward, made a perfect math score on the SAT general and subject 2, have had seven years tutoring experience as of 2018, and have experience tutoring elementary...

Elementary (K-6th)

In high school, I tutored a friend's son for two years. He was struggling in his classes and far below basic on his assessment tests. By the end of our tutoring, he was at proficiency in math and basic in his English. I do well with children, and I know how to simplify subjects so they're digestible for young students.

In High school, I tutored a struggling basic student to proficiency in math at the 4th grade level in six months. I know how to handle children, namely respectfully and patiently, to keep them learning, and I present things in whatever way suits them.

I took and passed both AP Language and Literature. Beyond the basics of structure, grammar, and syntax, English revolves around resolution or insight. To develop this, students need direction and practice.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 introduces many fundamental mathematics concepts, like variation and solving variables. I know that basics come naturally to most children and can be taught memorably through a process of exploration and discovery with questions and discussion. I know how to show students to follow along with more advanced lessons and especially to grasp why the mathematics works intuitively.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 builds on the concepts explored in algebra 1. To become more comfortable with any type of number, large, small, decimal, or fraction, demands a high degree of precision that I have for my students. The ideas that will be necessary to master will be solving systems of equations and interpreting various functions. As well as those traditionally algebraic concepts, there are probability, sequential, and trigonometry concepts to be introduced.
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus was my first love affair, from the first time I asked in algebra, "what if you could divide by something as it becomes zero" and my teacher gifted me his calculus book to investigate. Literally, ask me anything, I will remember, from the definition of the derivative as a limit to how the integral takes the value of a point and translates it into a slope and beyond into series and infinity and back (if you don't mind some projective geometry).
Chemistry,

Chemistry

Chemistry is the study of chemical interactions of elements and molecules. The foundational concepts of dimensional analysis, solving variables, and basic variation need to be mastered first so that the concepts can be understood. The concepts learned after this are the topics of the mole, molar mass, stoichiometry, heat, gas laws, diffusion, effusion, and optionally radiation and electricity.

Geometry,

Geometry

The Elements of Geometry by Euclid very expertly defined a point as that part which has no depth, and geometry builds from there. From points come lines, and lines planes, and planes spaces. Typical Euclidean geometry deals with planar geometry which combines lines into angles, triangles, parallel and perpendicular lines, similarity, and equivalence. Definitions and postulates serve as the foundation on which the rest of geometry builds, eventually culminating in being able to state a provable fact from these strings of truths.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Prealgebra involves the basis for understanding algebra. It goes over topics of number sense and beginnings of algebraic analytic thinking. I've mastered and have many tips for jumpstarting a young students understanding. I use experiment and drills to show students their own understanding of the concepts so they feel more involved and interested in the subject as they discover it.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Precalculus is very careful evaluation of a closed door to calculus and preparation to open that door. It explores the types of functions calculus looks at in more depth than algebra. It prepares you to handle the series that will eventually build into integrals, and manipulate variables to problem solve. It introduces you to the hardest problems you can solve without calculus by combining geometry and algebra: constant velocity, average rate of change, slope, area, and some infinite summations.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

SAT math involves a combination of logic and fairly simple mathematics. I know that tutoring to the content as well as the strategy is the most effective method of passing this section, whether the general or subject test. And having perfect scores for both of those, I can share my experience with students.

Very knowledgeable in math

Zach was very patient and knowledgeable with math. He can easily see what my son had trouble with and fixed it tonight. We will use his tutoring service again when my son has trouble with math.

Archwin, 1 lesson with Zachary

Explained reasoning

Explained how to find the formulas rather than have me memorize them. He drew out each graph and showed me what each piece means. Very patient and didn't just give me the answer, but allowed me to figure it out.

Gail, 10 lessons with Zachary

Knows what he's doing and patient!

He has helped my 14 year old son and 11 year old daughter. With their online school. They worked on math, english, and history. I see an improvement and their grades.

Rita, 3 lessons with Zachary

Patient and knowledgeable

Zachary is patient and a good listener. Knows what he is teaching and goes over everything you don’t understand. Would recommend! My daughter learned plenty and will definitely call him back for another session...

Lizeth, 1 lesson with Zachary

Patient and Knowledgeable with my daughter entering high school

Proper time management and putting everything in sequence made easy for our daughter to learn. Thank you Zachary much appreciated.

Tony, 1 lesson with Zachary

Patient Math Tutor

This was only our first session but we look forward to working with Zachary again. He was patient, pleasant, and very knowledgeable. He gave us a heads up on what she needs to practice and gave us ideas on how to do so for something different.

Kim, 8 lessons with Zachary

Excellent

He’s accommodating and very knowledgeable. I would most definitely recommend him. He’s made a huge difference in just two lessons. He’s reasonably priced and always on time too.

Misty, 2 lessons with Zachary

Great teaching

Zachary has been a great tutor for my kid. He knows how to help my kid to understand and solve the problem. Most important thing is he is helping my kid to start to build self confidence. Would love him to continue to help my kid.

Bill, 10 lessons with Zachary

Very knowledgeable

Zachary did a wonderful job teaching me Algebra. He's very patient, and explains Math in a fun and interesting way. I would definitely recommend Zachary to anyone looking for a tutor!
