About Zachary


Bio

I am Zack! I have been tutoring since my very first year at my university, and I love helping people learn, and learn how to learn. I worked in the Academic Assistance Resource Center (AARC) at my university's library where I tutored fellow students in Physics, Engineering, Astronomy, and Mathematics. I also worked as a Physics Laboratory Instructor in my academic department at Stephen F Austin State University, where I was responsible for maintaining the lab equipment and I taught students...

I am Zack! I have been tutoring since my very first year at my university, and I love helping people learn, and learn how to learn. I worked in the Academic Assistance Resource Center (AARC) at my university's library where I tutored fellow students in Physics, Engineering, Astronomy, and Mathematics. I also worked as a Physics Laboratory Instructor in my academic department at Stephen F Austin State University, where I was responsible for maintaining the lab equipment and I taught students the experimental procedures that they would be performing, and how to take and analyze data from a laboratory setting. I also helped whenever concepts were unfamiliar or the students had a poor grasp of a concept being experimented in the lab.

My absolute favorite thing about tutoring is seeing the light bulb come on in my client's eyes whenever something has finally clicked! So, finally, I can't wait to meet you as a client and help you to the very best of my abilities!

I have taken every Calculus class that my university offered to undergraduate students and then proceeded to do an independent study with one of my professors on Tensor Calculus and never received lower than an A.

I majored in Physics and have tutored, taught, and done research in the field of both Solid-State Physics and Particle Physics (Neutrino Physics). I triple minored in Engineering, Mathematics, and Astronomy, where I took every single Engineering class that my school offered, at the time, and I have also taken every single Astronomy class my university offered.

Currently, I am a PhD Candidate and am working on my doctoral research at Fermilab (a national laboratory under the US Department of Energy) in Batavia, Illinois. I have finished all of my necessary course work and have taught physics labs at my graduate institution, too.

Differential Equations

I have both tutored and worked with Differential Equations before. I have even worked in laboratory settings using programs to analyze different Differential Equations that were modeling the systems we had created in the laboratory. I have taken two different courses on Differential Equations.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I have taken two different courses on Linear Algebra. I am a physicist and use Linear Algebra often in my approaches to both Matrix Mechanics and Group Theory in Quantum Mechanical systems. This subject is very near and dear to me and I have tutored this subject before at my university.

Clear and knowledgeable

Zachary taught the topics in honor precalculus. He helped my son to understand the concept better and catch up with what was overlooked in school’s class. We are happy to have Zachary as our tutor.

Tutor who makes learning more enjoyable

Zack had a great sense of humor which made Physics more interesting and learning more fun. He was very responsive to our request, and he gave a good overview of needed areas to work on.

Excellent Tutor

Zack is an exceptional tutor and has helped my daughter tremendously. He has worked with her through some difficult problems with patience and a great attitude. He is brilliant and is a subject matter expert in his field. I absolutely recommend him!

Punita, 11 lessons with Zachary

Very knowledgeable and encouraging tutor!

After the first lesson, I can tell he is going to be very good for my daughter in precalc. He asked her questions to see where she was at, and explained things very well. I believe he will really be able to help her with Honors precalc!

Jody, 4 lessons with Zachary

Awesome tutor!

Zach is so patient and knows his stuff. He’s able to explain what seems complex things to me in a way that is simple and understandable. I did awesome on my pre cal quiz thanks to him! Great tutor! Highly recommend.

Delia, 3 lessons with Zachary

Very Knowledgeable

Zack has help my son with his confidence in Pre Calculus. He was failing and now after a few tutorials with Zack my son brought his grade up to a B for the six weeks. I highly recommend Zack as a tutor.

Jamie, 2 lessons with Zachary

Very knowledgable

My daughter feels very confident for her physics test today after a productive, helpful tutoring session with Zack. He knows his stuff!

Tina, 2 lessons with Zachary

Quick to reply! Great tutor!

Zach was great! He definitely knew his stuff (I'm covering MCAT physics) and he played only the "teacher" role. I was able to get a hold of him in only a few hours. During the session, he emphasized the importance of fundamentals, which has helped me avoid the frustrations and mistakes of all the variables that goes into a physic's problem. I will definitely go back to Zach in the future.
