About Zach

Looking for after school tutoring from a uniquely qualified, certified teacher? You have come to the right place! I am a former special education resource teacher who is now teaching history at the high school level. I have been teaching for 8 years, and I have worked in the Simsbury, Madison, and New Haven school districts in Connecticut. I am certified in History/Social Studies 9-12, Elementary K-6, and Special Education K-12. I am qualified to tutor in every elementary and middle school subject area, and I specialize in social studies at the high school level. I also have years of experience working with children with learning disabilities. I have had several rewarding teaching positions with a diverse community of students over the years.

I take pride in my ability to make connections with my students, and I take the same approach to my tutoring. I help my students with comprehension by providing guided practice, giving real-world examples, and teaching a variety of study strategies. The ultimate goal of tutoring is confidence and independence for the student in the target subject area, and that will be first and foremost. If I sound like the tutor you need, contact me and we will begin the journey toward that goal!

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.

American History

I went back to receive my CT teaching certification in Social Studies 7-12 in 2012. I took online and night classes while teaching special education full-time. I passed the notorious Praxis Social Studies test on the first attempt, and I have been teaching social studies in New Haven ever since.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been certified to teach Elementary K-6 for the past eight years. I originally set out to work at the elementary level, and did my student teaching at elementary schools. Though I now work at the high school level, I taught fifth graders during my time working as a special education teacher.

Microsoft Word

I have extensively used Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) both as a student and as a teacher. I am knowledgeable about the features and capabilities of the programs, and I often find myself assisting colleagues at school. I can certainly help people get acquainted with the programs, or become more proficient with using them.

Social Studies

I have my CT teaching certificate in Social Studies and History, grades 9-12. I am also qualified to teach all subjects, including social studies, at the elementary level. My special education certification also covers the middle school grades, where I have years of experience assisting special needs students with all subjects.

Study Skills

I have taught both life skills and study skills in my years as a special education teacher. I have helped students reach IEP goals in the areas of executive functioning and organization/study skills. I also have attended workshops at Landmark School in Massachusetts related to study skills, and have many useful resources and strategies to share.

Writing

I have taught writing skills in my years as a special education teacher, and assist my history students with written responses to primary sources and persuasive essays. I have helped students reach IEP goals in this area. I have very strong verbal and written skills, and I use those to my advantage in both my teaching and tutoring.
