About Zachary

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
Tutoring as a member of my University's chapter of the Society of Physics Students. I've had an internship designing simple CAD projects for children with learning disabilities, and was responsible for showing them how AutoDesk Inventor (CAD software) works in order to complete the project. I've participated in a research fellowship that required teaching our research topics to high school students. This required making presentations and activities in a simple and progressive way such that high school freshman can follow along.
