About

Zito is a passionate and energetic instructor who utilizes a coach-like approach to working with students. As a high school student, Zito was an AP Scholar. He spent three years teaching college writing as part of a “super” teaching assistantship, and he spent four years teaching high school English and math. He believes he has found his niche as a private tutor, a profession he has enjoyed for more than a decade. Though his focus in college was English literature, math has always been one of his strongest subjects.

In the past year, two-thirds of Zito’s students achieved SAT scores of 1400 or higher, and Zito guided one student to a 120-point improvement on the Math section.
