About Zachary

I've always been fascinated by learning and helping others to learn. Since earning my B.A. in Political Science with minors in Economic Policy and American History from the University of Nevada, Reno in August 2015, I have been thinking about how to reinvest all of the time and energy that my teachers and professors invested in me; what better way than to tutor youth and college students to foster high achievement and empower goal achievement?

I specialize in social sciences and reading/writing, but I emphasize disciplined study habits and time management to my students so that they can be successful long after my tutoring services are not in the picture. My passion is for students to achieve, and to empower them to set and achieve high academic and life goals. While I love to see students improve test scores and grades, what is far more important to me is that they see the bigger picture of life and that they dream bigger and work harder.

In an increasingly scientific and technologically driven world, skills in mathematics are of critical importance to a student's background. My tutoring goes beyond teaching a student to come up with a correct answer; I'm more interested that the student understands how to think about the problem conceptually and logically to derive the correct answer. I use a skills and logic based approach to lower level mathematics so that students will have solid foundations on which to expand their studies of mathematics in more advanced courses.

If you like what you see on this page, please contact me to inquire about an initial appointment. I look forward to meeting you and/or your student!

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 Reading

When I took the test in 2011, I earned a score of 35 on English and a mid 30s score on Reading, both very high scores relative to the average test taker.

Political Science

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Nevada, Reno with a major in Political Science, and it only took me three years! My coursework included different categories of political science, but I focused primarily on political theory and philosophy. My research interests include the relationship between political action and sports and the work of Hannah Arendt.

Public Speaking

I learned the fundamentals of public speaking skills at a very early age as a debater in high school (and for a short time in college). As a competitive debater and competitor in individual speech events, I learned the ins and outs of various types of public speaking, from persuasive to interpretive to expository to extemporaneous and everything in between. I also participated in mock trial in high school and put my skills to the test in front of real judges and attorneys for and learned from their critiques. My skills in writing, organizing, editing, and practicing speeches and preparing for public speaking engagements are on par with the very best.
