Florida State University (Physics)
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.

I offer tutoring for two students at a time for time and a half.
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.
Zachary is a very talented Math wiz! Very smart and humble, he explained things to me as simple as possible, which I was very grateful for. I haven't had a Math class in YEARS! yet because of Zachary's teaching abilities I was able to grasp the new skills he taught me, as well as retain some skills I'd lost.
He was very nice. He helped me understand my Geometry problems and explained them to me in a way I can relate. He is very good.
He starts with the basics and teaches you how to solve a problem in the simplest way I'm happy that I found him as a tutor !
I have no previous knowledge of algebra, and he is very helpful in explaining the basics and patient while I'm learning.
Zachary has really helped my son a lot with Algebra II, his grades have improved and so has his confidence.
My son will be getting his diploma on Friday largely because of Zach! Without Zach's help, he would not have passed Algebra II. Zach was incredibly reliable and patient. My son said Zach was very smart and really helped him understand the material. I would absolutely recommend him!
I like Zach. He was very patient and for our first session was on time ready to answer any questions I had. However, even though he was a great help his cost per hour is expensive and am unable to make any future plans with him. All around a good tutor, helpful and patient.
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.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Physics. I have Tutored high school and college students in algebra.
I have a Bachelor's in physics with a minor in mathematics from FSU, including Calculus.
Dozens of students have come to me for help in trigonometry, and all of them have seen growth.
