About Zachary


Bio

Hey everyone! I am a current MIT senior studying mechanical engineering, and also a pitcher on the Varsity Baseball team. Throughout my time here I have enjoyed helping friends and peers understand difficult subjects, but I also know how it feels to ask others for help in areas I find tough. I enjoy tutoring because I love to help others find those breakthrough moments of understanding, and hopefully turn subjects into something they may actually enjoy!

Hey everyone! I am a current MIT senior studying mechanical engineering, and also a pitcher on the Varsity Baseball team. Throughout my time here I have enjoyed helping friends and peers understand difficult subjects, but I also know how it feels to ask others for help in areas I find tough. I enjoy tutoring because I love to help others find those breakthrough moments of understanding, and hopefully turn subjects into something they may actually enjoy!

I have been tutoring math and science for four years (three at a popular private tutoring company), and have helped students from 2nd grade all the way up through college. I love teaching students how to break apart tough problems into components they can more easily tackle. I also aspire to develop better study habits so that students can more effectively control their learning on their own.

I got a 35 on the math portion of the ACT, and an 800 on the SAT Math II Subject Test. I also received a 5 on the AP Calculus AB and BC portions, and a 5 on the AP Statistics test. On the ACT science portion, I received a 34, and got a 780 on the SAT Physics Subject Test. Through my mechanical engineering coursework I have to apply complex algebra and calculus skills to solve difficult physics problems. My experience applying these concepts to the real world of engineering can help students understand why what they are doing actually matters, which I have found to be important and helpful to a lot of people.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Zachary was available immediately to help my son with his Solidworks assignment. He was very patient tutor and was able to help my son have a better understanding of his work assignment.

Great teacher

Zachary knows Solidworks quite well and is a patience and capable tutor. His explanation are clear, concise and he offers alternatives which accelerates the learning process. I look forward to working with him again!

Amazing Calc Tutor

Zach and I went over trigonometric Integrals. This was a subject that simply foreign to me prior to doing this lesson. With Zach's help, I was able to have a foundation for this topic and I ultimately feel more comfortable when approaching these types of problems Zach is an exceptional tutor, as he really caters towards his students and ensures that they really grasp the concept he is teaching.
