Zinc provides one-on-one tutoring, comprehensive college coaching, and test prep. All of our educational services are guided by our core principles:
Love. Effort. Attention. Reading. Numbers.
L.E.A.R.N. raises scores and creates lifelong learners.
Matt Bardin founded Zinc because his experiences as a teacher and tutor made it clear that college admissions and test prep are not about tips and tricks or gaming the system. Goals are achieved and scores go up when we teach students fundamental skills to help them really learn.
Zinc tutors work with students all over the world, online and in-person. Zinc tutors specialize in virtually every academic subject. We also prepare students for all major standardized tests including the SAT, ACT, ISEE, SSAT, SHSAT, IB and AP exams.
Zinc provides individualized, comprehensive college admissions coaching. Our coaches teach students and their families how to approach the college process with confidence, enthusiasm, and curiosity. We've helped hundreds of students achieve their goals in high school and go on to excel at their dream colleges.
