About Zachary

I just completed my physics degree at FSU, and I will be going into teaching high school physics soon. I am looking to build some experience in tutoring people of all ages in science and math. i have a deep passion for communicating science. My dream in life is to bring science to the masses.

I have spent the last 4 years tutoring and taking classes at FSU. I have studied a wide array of topics in physics including classical mechanics, quantum theory, electrodynamics, and some astrophysics during my time at FSU. Mathematics was my minor, and also an integral part of becoming skilled at physics. I have tutored students attending Tulane, UNO, FSU, FAMU and high schools around Tallahassee and the New Orleans area in physics, calculus, trigonometry, algebra, and geometry. My chemistry experience is a bit more limited, as I have only tutored two student total, but I am eager to get more experience in the subject.

The next 6 months I will be devoting exclusively to tutoring, and getting certified as a teacher. I am doing this, because 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, he 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.

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.
