Qualifications & Experience

I have a law degree with specialization in international and comparative law. I work in immigration (protecting people's rights). I taught ESL for 7 years in Japan with some experience in management and government work. My undergraduate degree was a mix of French, Spanish, and Japanese with a heavy load of literature, writing, and travel. Also, I've been playing guitar and performing live for many years.

Great! He used every opportunity to educate, often drawing from unexpected sources. He put ideas into context in a way that related to my experience very well.

Zachary really helped me feel more intelligent than when I started, and related to me well. He doesn't treat anything as too obvious or self-evident just because he knows it. Great to work with.

Would gladly study with Zachary again. He was encouraging. I felt at ease with him but also kept wanting to improve.
