Zachary Leonard

Tutor, Los Angeles
Subject Specialties: SAT/ACT

Growing up and attending university in the Upper Midwest, Zachary is quick to point out that even the coldest day in Los Angeles is warm by his standards. In an effort to escape the frigid temperatures, Zachary spent a great deal of his collegiate career indoors conducting research on the Visual system in a Cognitive Neuroscience lab and another year studying Evolutionary Biology. After graduating Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Psychology and minors in Neuroscience and Zoology, Zachary decided to leave the Midwest and move to Los Angeles (the weather may or may not have played a significant role in that decision).

Since moving to L.A., Zachary has spent the past few years preparing students for both the ACT and SAT. Employing anecdotes, analogies, and alliterations, he focuses on helping students speak the language of the test. He relishes every incredulous “That’s it?” when a student successfully answers a question they initially thought was beyond their abilities.

When he’s not tutoring, Zachary enjoys writing, films, stand-up comedy, and having his loyalty tested by the ever-terrible Minnesota Timberwolves basketball team.
