Hi! I’m Zach, a Stanford graduate with a degree in film and media studies and a minor in education. I’ve been teaching writing for several years and absolutely love working one-on-one with students. I especially enjoy personal statements, college essays, and writing that highlights a personal voice. When I’m not teaching or writing, I love running, skiing, and hiking.
