Zack grew up on the plains in northern Minnesota. He developed his interest in math early on, which led to a summa cum laude undergraduate degree in math and computer science at Concordia College. In order to focus further on applied mathematics, he completed his Masters and PhD from North Carolina State University. While at NC State, he participated in their Preparing the Professoriate teaching preparation program, shadowing an upper level undergraduate then teaching the course. After his graduate work, he conducted analysis at MIT Lincoln Laboratory for four years and is currently a scientist working to build and utilize a mathematical model for drug-induced liver injury.
Zack has over ten years of tutoring experience in mathematics. He has tutored students in all topics from high school through undergraduate, adapting material so that it makes sense to each student.
Zack also enjoys traveling to old and new places, computer/board gaming, and playing golf.
