    He is punctual, communicates well and is flexible if issues arise. We like that he offers in person and virtual. He works well with our student to pinpoint where she needs help.

    Mr Tocchi has great subject knowledge and is great in helping grasp concepts. The tutoring sessions were a great help!!

  • Elizabeth Glorioso

    Finding Zach was a godsend. Our school was having difficulty with their math program so our student needed more than average tutoring. He jumped right into the geometry curriculum and our student excelled. Zach is friendly, professional and relates well to teens. Our student very much enjoyed learning geometry from him!

    I highly recommend Zach. Our boys started working with him because their classroom teacher was ineffective. Zach taught my younger son algebra 1 and my older son geometry during weekly 1:1 sessions, and my boys always looked forward to working with him. Zach works with each student at their own pace and utilizes online textbooks and programs so that virtual sessions are effective and engaging.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

For the first session, it would be really great to learn about the student's background, what level of mathematics they are currently taking, what book they are using to learn from, what school they are at. All of these things help me paint the best picture to determine how to best help a student understand what they are trying to learn. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have taught mathematics for 8 years at a school in Akron. I also have tutored on the side for the better part of 10 years now. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Base rate is $30-40/hour. This may be a little higher depending on where I need to travel to. I typically do not have students come to my house, but would be happy to meet at a Panera or something similar if that would be more convienent! 

How did you get started teaching?

I've always wanted to be a teacher since the first day of kindergarten. I would always play school with my friends and family. Teaching is in my blood. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with everything from lower level students to honors students and anyone in between. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I traveled to Texas over the summer and spent a week with my family where I got to be on my cousin's podcast. Then I went to Austin for a week to be a part of Apple's Computer Science cohort. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Meet with them. Make sure they are friendly and make you feel comfortable learning from them. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What specifically am I struggling with? What do I need to know to learn what I am learning now? What topics should I review to help? How can I do better?
