About Zachary

I have taught upper level math classes to undergraduates, as well as all grades and courses in high school. I've won teaching awards, and have done research in mathematical biology. I love finding real-world connections to math of all varieties.

In my undergraduate and early graduate schools days I did open tutoring for Support for Science Students, bouncing from chemistry to physics to computer science to biology and back to math all within 20 minutes of working around a table. I'm a lifelong learner who wants to learn everything; but the moment of seeing a light bulb go off in a students eyes is the most rewarding moment.

I have the education, experience, and recognition. I am currently licensed as a TN Secondary Teacher with an endorsement in Mathematics, but also taught university courses for 9 years.

I can help in many subjects, it never hurts to ask.

Available to travel.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

C++

I have a long history of programming in C++. Starting with getting a 5 on the AP Comp Sci Test (then given in C++) to doing scientific modeling using the language as part of post-master's research, it has been my main language.

I have taken college courses in computer methods using other Object Oriented Languages.

Computer Programming

I write code as part of my job (several hundred lines of code per week). I have taught a programming course for the University of Tennessee (Introduction to Programming for Math majors). As part of the way to my math degrees (BA, MA) I studied computer science and algorithms. I am familiar with several programming languages, including C++, Python, Java, R, Fortran, MATLAB, and VB.

Differential Equations

I taught the course at the University of Tennessee. My research in graduate school was heavily dependent on differential equations. I took several courses in grad school in the field of differential equations.

Finite Math

I am a licensed teacher in the state of Tennessee, with a secondary endorsement in mathematics. On top of my graduate education (masters +60), I am experienced in teaching math of all levels.

Linear Algebra

I got my master's in Mathematics, but took several more years of graduate classes. I studied linear algebra, took higher courses in algebra. I used applied linear algebra in my programming courses, and even included some of the material while teaching differential equations at the University of Tennessee.

MATLAB

I co-taught an introduction to mathematical programming using MATLAB at the University of Tennessee. I have also been involved in research and graduate coursework that used MATLAB heavily.
