About Zachary

I love math but more than that I love when I can change someone's mind about math. I hear over and over phrases such as; "I can't do math", "I don't have a math brain", or "I wish I could get math". I have good news, those statements are not true. Anyone can be good at math, it just takes practice and someone to help you make connections in a way that works for you.
When I was a child I struggled with mathematics, I couldn't even memorize the multiplication table. Not until someone sat down with me and helped me make the concepts my own. Understanding the rules of multiplication by means of personal analogy made it all "click". Now years later I have advanced degrees in theoretical and applied mathematics. In addition, I also teach Math at Metro State University of Denver. My proudest moments/achievements have been the students lives I changed by teaching them they can do math.



I specialize in tutoring/teaching math. From Pre-Algebra to Partial Differential equations. If it's math I love it.

I am generally available every day from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
I can travel to meet students or meet online.
I look forward to learning math with you.

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.

Algebra 1

I am a professor of mathematics at MSUDenver

Differential Equations

I have a Bachelors degree in theoretical mathematics.
I have a Masters degree in applied mathematics.
My masters defense was on what constitutes an eigen-system when dealing with fourth order tensors.
I have a particular fondness for chaos theory.

Linear Algebra

I have taken and passed both undergraduate and graduate linear algebra courses. For a project in the graduate linear algebra course I developed an algorithm for finding generalized eigenvectors, and the Jordan-canonical form of a matrix. Two of the courses I teach on a regular basis have chapters devoted to matrices.

Martial Arts

I am a fourth degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, (testing for fifth in November 2016). I have a First dan (degree) in Hap Ki Do. I coach for a Tae Kwon Do's poomsae (forms) team. I hold a level one referee certificate for poomsae competition. I was the 2012 state champion in weapons forms. I have also studied Pinjack Silate, Jujitsu,Tai Chi, and Tabimina.

Painting

For my undergrad degree I did an IDP (independent learning) in which I mixed my aptitude in math with my love of art. I designed a minor centered around Leonardo Da Vinci and how math and art are two sides of the same coin. I was required to pass the painting 3 course.
