About Zachary

About two years ago I completed my bachelors in physics at Florida State. Since then I have spent my time tutoring around the New Orleans area. I have worked with students from Tulane, UNO, Loyola, Delgado, and just about every high school in the city.

The last 5 years I have been tutoring, but also attending FSU, where I studied a wide array of topics in physics including classical mechanics, quantum theory, electrodynamics, and some astrophysics. Mathematics was my minor, and also an integral part of becoming skilled at physics.

I have spent the last few years working at a Nonprofit in New Orleans that helps students under the poverty line get into college. During this time I have developed a new approach to tutoring. I believe that if you want to get good at something, you have to learn by doing. This is the outlook I have on my students, and my profession. If a student wants to get an A in calculus, they can only do so by practicing. It does not matter how well you understand the theory until you practice every type of problem. I learned this first hand whilst taking my more difficult courses at FSU. It is the outlook I take with submitting my application on this web site. I am far less concerned with making money than I am with bringing science to the masses. I want to hone my skills as a tutor, as I help someone improve their own skills in science and math.

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 have a Bachelor's degree in Physics. I have Tutored high school and college students in algebra.

Calculus

I have a Bachelor's in physics with a minor in mathematics from FSU, including Calculus.

Trigonometry

Dozens of students have come to me for help in trigonometry, and all of them have seen growth.

Conceptually skilled

Zachary was able to put things in perspective that my professor was unable to do. He seems to know exactly what he is talking about when it comes to science and mathematics and can explain in many different ways how to solve a problem.
