Hello I am Zach from Dallas. I have a BS in Sociology, and MEd in Education, and a PsyD in Clinical Psychology. I love to find students exactly where they are and give them the tools to be the best v

Methodology

I am probably one of the most eclectic instructors you will ever have! While I am an all star at the tried and true lecture, I also use tools that are based on the way the brain actually works to ensure that you retain all of the information, but most importantly the concepts. My favorite tool is Prezi! I am also a master of what is called TBL or team based learning. If you think you hate working in groups, I promise I can fix that. Most importantly I love to have fun, and once you are my student, you are my student for life. Ive been known to fly across country to watch a student play in a football game, and to be in students weddings. I hope you will give me a shot to see what I can do for you.

Experience

I have been teaching since I was a sophomore in college. I have taught everything from college athletes to college level political science, to college psychology and every subject imaginable at the high school level. There is nothing I love more than working with students!

I am a lifelong traveler, so I tend to be able to bring cross-cultural perspectives to any of my lessons.

I took Zachary's human sexuality course at Richland a year ago and miss it everyday! He was so informative, so real, and so willing to work with each of his students. Even now I consider him my all time favorite professor and would strongly recommend having him be apart of your life!

Mr. Spencer is one of my favorite teachers. He has a beautiful way of explaining and engaging with his students. Truly made me want to learn and actually trust in myself!

From experience, I always knew zach was a great teacher. He loved his students and just couldn’t give up until everyone has understood what was being explained and are happy at the end of every session. I used to have a full schedule at school and his class was the only class I looked forward too! With Zach you are not judged nor there are wrong answers and that is very important with any profosser. The class was educating, fun and I never felt like the class was taking forever to end. I was always interested with what he was talking about and sometimes wished the class never ended. Zach is a great person and a great teacher that I think anyone should give a chance to learn from.
