About Ze

12 year tutor and 4 year math/science teacher. BA in math and physics, plus a MA in Physics Adolescent Education. For the last three years, I've been teaching all levels of math, physics, chemistry, and programming at Fusion Academy, a 1-on-1 private school, with an emphasis on AP physics and calculus.

Teaching and tutoring has been my passion since high school. I used to tutor students after school because I loved to see that look of "ahh I get it now" on students faces. A decade later, it has become my passion and career.

I mainly tutor four subjects: Physics (high school and college level), Calculus, SAT math, and C++ programming. But former students who have siblings or cousins struggling in algebra or pre-calc tend to come to me as well.

The plan with my regular students is always: catch up then get ahead. We start by focusing on upcoming tests and quizzes, which means reviewing material leading up to the current chapter. After the time crunch period, we focus on learning ahead of the class. Very often, I can give the short version of a topic in 1h that a regular class takes 3 days to get through. The shortened time frame might imply less comprehension but it's just the opposite. By teaching the entire topic all at once, I avoid the all too often problem of disconnected knowledge, which is when students learn bits of knowledge but never comprehend how they connect.

If you have any questions, please feel free to message me.

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.

He was GREAT! So Proactive!

He is really on his game and enjoys what he does. He was a great planner and communicator. He really cares about his students and makes them at ease and ready to learn. My daughter misses him and trusted him as a teacher.
