Hello,

I am Mike Z,

I graduated from UMBC, an Honors University in Maryland, specializing in Engineering Education with a focus in differentiated instruction and communication. I have taught engineering and technology education for several years in Baltimore county. Teaching in such a diverse environment, in a particularly interdisciplinary field, has allowed me to make unique learning experiences within the classroom.

I have been honored with the award for a teacher that "INSPIRES" , through implementing unique and progressive instruction within my classroom. It is with the intent to inspire that I find my true passion in teaching and the love that I have with the unique experience in working with students outside of the classroom to nurture them to expand beyond what they are capable of in a school setting to achieve a more grand realization of their potential.

With a background in Mechanical Engineering and a degree and certification for instruction, I have a broad understanding of all subjects and the ability to support the needs of any learner as it best suits them. My strengths fall predominately in the Math, Design, Physical Science and Technology categories. However, I have an exorbitant amount of experience in synthesizing multiple schools of thought in order to create or solve unique engineering design challenges.

My intent in working with this platform is to support any student that may find themselves struggling with their current instruction and make them feel that success can be achieved with some additional effort and direction. In this, my hope is to help that anyone realize that any challenge can be tackled.

Please feel free to reach out if you are interested in working together.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

My 8th grade grandson has been struggling with pre-algebra and not feeling confident. After our first meeting with Mr. Z, I could see the renewed confidence in my grandson. I appreciate Mike’s patience in working with my grandson. I would highly recommend Mr. Z to anyone looking for a math tutor.

Ready to help

Micheal has already shown in one meeting that he is going to be a huge help in my daughter's education. He offers a baseline on where to start and moves on from there. She is excited to have more lesson.
