About Zachary


Bio

I used to despise math. Throughout elementary and middle school, I swore that I would stop taking math as soon as I could. But in high school, everything changed. I had a brilliant, passionate teacher who helped to show me that math is more than plugging numbers into equations - it is truly amazing and beautiful.

I used to despise math. Throughout elementary and middle school, I swore that I would stop taking math as soon as I could. But in high school, everything changed. I had a brilliant, passionate teacher who helped to show me that math is more than plugging numbers into equations - it is truly amazing and beautiful.

I carried my new found love of math with me to the University of Virginia and graduated with two degrees - a B.A. in Math and a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. Throughout the years at college, I discovered that in addition to a love for learning math, I loved teaching it as well.

I gained valuable teaching experience from tutoring fellow students and working as a teaching assistant throughout my final three years of college. Tutoring fellow students allowed me to develop one-on-one teaching skills. I tailored every tutoring session specifically to the needs of fellow students by figuring out what aspects of the subject gave them trouble, and then creating hand-written lessons and problems to help them understand the material. Working as a teaching assistant afforded me the opportunity to teach differential equations to hundreds of college students. I held office hours to help students with the material, created video solutions to difficult problems, and held multiple test review sessions, sometimes condensing a semester's worth of material into two-hour sessions.

My approach to teaching is to present the material with clarity and passion, ensuring the student learns the skills needed to complete homework and score well on tests. As I have done before tutoring fellow college students, I can prepare hand-written lessons and problems in advance of sessions. If requested, I can make video solutions as well. Whatever technique I use, I always strive to really show a student the beauty of what they are learning, just as my high school teacher did with me.

I can cover most math topics up to the entry graduate level. My expertise ranges roughly from pre-Algebra to subjects such as Partial Differential Equations, Complex Analysis, and Group Theory.

Perceptive and patient tutor!

My son had his first lesson with Zack today and we were very impressed. He was very quickly able to hone in on exactly where best to help him. He's clearly knowledgeable about the material and very personable. We look forward to continuing lessons with Zack.

Excellent tutor for BC Calculus

Zack is bright, articulate and organized and was easy for my daughter to talk to. She learned so much in just one session. She is looking forward to working with him during her BC calculus course.
