About Zander

Prior to WyzAnt I tutored for a multicultural club on campus at my alma mater, followed by my current position as an online tutor at Chegg.

I love to learn. I have a broad base of subjects I feel comfortable tutoring, but not because I have dissertations and awards in these fields. It's more fun and effective to show people how to learn something than to tutor with the attitude of, "I know this, you don't." Helping a student figure out the many ways a subject can be approached makes difficult problems less daunting. Not only do students leave my sessions with questions answered, they leave with more confidence in their own abilities to problem-solve.

My expertise is highest in sociology, reading, writing, and ACT prep. I am a competent tutor in various other fields.

I took Spanish for 8 years in my K-12 education (4th through 12th grade). I demonstrated enough proficiency in Spanish to test out of my university's language requirement. I am still able to tutor beginning and intermediate Spanish (Spanish 4/5 in high school, and low 200-level in college).

English was the ACT subject I scored highest in (33), but I did well across the board (31 on Reading, 31 on Math, 30 on Science).

My major (Sociology) and minor degrees (Philosophy, American Culture and Difference) are both reading and writing intensive. I also have experience publishing and presenting original research which sharpens both of those skills.

I write, edit, and moderate a website that has received positive feedback for the depth of the content as well as the quality of the writing.

My hours are flexible, I'm easy to get along with, and I make learning fun. Hit me up!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT English

English was my highest score on the ACT (33). I was also in reading and writing intensive fields of study throughout my college career.

ACT Reading

I scored a 33 on the ACT English section, 31 on the Reading, and an 8 in Writing. My field of study in college was reading and writing intensive, so those skills have been sharpened. I'm more than ready to aid a student in improving in these areas.

ACT Science

Received a 30 on the Science portion when I took the test (2011), and have tutored students in preparation for the ACT.

Writing

I received an 8 on my ACT Writing, published an original research paper and presented it at the McNair Conference in Maryland in Spring 2015.

Great tutor

Zander tutored my high school son in Spanish and was very effective in explaining the material and helping him prepare for a test. He really enjoyed working with Zander and is already feeling more confident and has a better attitude about his Spanish class.
