About Zachary

I demand a lot from my students and tell them exactly what they need to do in order to understand the material. I also tell them the types of behaviors which will result in failures.

I've tutored (Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, Calculus I & II, Statistics, Econ) for the George Mason University Athletics Department and have a record of tutoring students with diverse levels of comprehension and experience. I've been told multiple times by my students that "I wish my teacher had just said that in the first place." I firmly believe that most math and stat teachers are simply "bad" and that they don't remember what it's like not to know a subject.

I've worked at think tanks and have extensive experience with Excel and data manipulation. I highly recommend this skill to anyone in school or who works with large data sets (especially economic data).

I'm currently a PhD Economics student at GMU. I have a Master's in Economics and I have a B.S. in Economics with a minor in Finance. I also do economic & methodological consulting for researchers at think tanks who are not experts in economics.

For lessons, I ask that GMU students reserve a room at GMU. I can also meet anywhere in the City of Fairfax or further at the premium rate. I am also able to meet remotely using Oovoo which provides an easy interface for switching between the camera-view and the desktop-view.

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.

Econometrics

I am a PhD student in Economics. I've completed PhD level classes in Time Series, 2 classes in Microeconometrics, as well as Econometric theory I & II. These classes included both conceptual and applied econometrics.

Great Instructor and Communicator — After having two lessons with Zachary, I was able to clearly understand concepts and terminology that I was having difficulty with prior to our session. Zachary had the ability to simplify concepts that I was struggling with in order to help me better understand the concept. After having Zachary as my tutor, I saw instant results and my grade improved tremendously. I would highly recommend him to ...
