"Whether you want some assistance with your homework or want to advance ahead of the class, I can help."
My name is Zachary Feld and I am the founder of Educated Fox. I am originally from Markham, Ontario, just north of Toronto. I was a member of the Honour Society at Thornhill Secondary School and was the recipient of the President's Entrance Scholarship at the University of Waterloo.
I attended the University of Waterloo for the Honours Mechanical Engineering Co-operative Program. I graduated in 2011 with Distinction and was on the Dean's Honour List. Since graduating I have worked as a Forensic Investigator in the field of Collision Reconstruction. I am a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), a member of The Canadian Association of Technical Accident Investigators and Reconstructionists (CATAIR), a member of Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO), and I hold a Professional Engineer (P.Eng) license.
Being the Canadian boy I am, I love hockey (and yes, the Maple Leafs). I am also fascinated by the automotive world and get great satisfaction from completing hands-on projects. Lastly, I enjoy photography, especially of the countryside north of the city.
My strong skills in mathematics have been key to my success. If you are looking to improve your mathematical aptitude contact us.
I have always been pretty good at math, but I started having problems in Grade 10 - I got 37% on one test. So I started to get help from Zac. We connect on Skype once a week and he helps me with my homework. We use the screen share function and Zac has a program where he can write and I see as he is writing. I can also take a screen shot of his notes so I can look at them afterwards.
Because we work over Skype, I don't have to travel anywhere. I get to stay at my house. I like that Zac makes sure I understand every concept before we move on. He is a math expert and really good at explaining things. He is patient with me and never negative. I just got 89% on my mid-term exam so I know his help is making a difference.

Zac has a talent for engaging a student. He has the ability to quickly identify how a student learns best and works with those who are struggling in a manner that best suits their learning style. His calm and encouraging manner has motivated my daughter to tackle grade 11 Math with a positive attitude. She has benefitted greatly from his energy and expertise. He makes himself available and is quick to respond to any questions, truly a lifesaver. I highly recommend Zac as an exceptional tutor!
- Carolyn W. (daughter in grade 11)
Zachary has tremendously helped me throughout my second semester of college level math, and with confidence I was able to pass with excellent marks. Zachary has a great way of teaching, he has been patient and understanding with what I found challenging, and yet Zachary managed to find a way to teach me in a way I would get. I have had several other tutors before him, and I have paid top dollar. But Zachary wasn't like the others. Not only is his rate fair, he has been the best tutor by far. I can say with confidence that I am able to continue the math taught by Zachary on my own and will probably stick with me for the rest of my life.
P.s. I would highly recommend Zachary to anyone who is struggling with math.

Hi Zac: Just wanted to let you know that (daughter's name) got 88% on her last math test. Thanks for all your help!
When I first starting getting tutoring from Zac I was behind in Calculus and Functions. I've been meeting with Zac on a weekly basis and not only am I caught up, but I'm ahead in both classes. If Zac and I are not scheduled to meet for a few days and I need help with my homework, he is flexible and helps me out through Skype. Zac is the best!
-Marcus P., Grade 12
I have been tutored by Zac for a few months now, throughout the tutoring sessions my understanding of Grade 12 Advanced Functions (MHF 4U) had increased greatly. As a result my marks have been greatly elevated and my confidence in the course has skyrocketed. Zac always seems to find a way to put even the hardest concepts in terms which I can fully understand and in turn then apply. For students whose Forte lies elsewhere than in math textbooks I would highly recommend his services.
-Robert G., Grade 12
Zac Feld is an amazing tutor! As soon as I started working with him, he tried to see what my strengths and weaknesses were, and helped me learn by relating the work to what I was good at. He is very patient, flexible with his hours, and is great at simplifying terms to help someone to better understand them. He has taught me to always read questions carefully and to make sure that I really understand what they are asking for, whether it is math or physics. Zac is very smart and easy to talk to, and I highly recommend his tutoring service to anyone who is having trouble in school.
-Nina H., Grade 11
I got 97% on my Physics test!!! Thank you so much for all your help! Without your tutoring I would have never done so well. So thank you very much!!
-Rebecca F., Grade 11
Thank you Zac, My son really took to you! He enjoyed your lesson. See you next Monday.
(Son's name) has been very positive about his sessions with you - I think you are just what he needs.
Zac has a wonderful rapport with people of all ages, especially children. He has a great ability to connect with my 11 year old son who struggles with focusing and keeping his attention. Along with his talent at teaching math concepts, is his patience with our son. Both are truly superior. With Zac’s excellent command over math and the ability to address many concerns, we were very pleased and excited to see our son’s confidence grow and our son’s fear of Math diminish with each tutorial lesson.
In a few short months, our son has gone from avoiding math homework and dreading class to math becoming one of his more enjoyable and most improved subject!
If you are seeking a tutor for your child(ren) or yourself, I would highly recommend Zac. Our family is very thankful we found him!
-Sharon G. (son in grade 6)
Zac is the first tutor we've had for our two daughters, aged 11 and 14. He's been working with them for just a few weeks so far and it's going great! He is polite and patient and explains the concepts and rationale for the work clearly. As my younger daughter said, "He will explain things as many times as I need him to, and he doesn't mind at all!" I've already recommended Zac to a friend!
-Renu R. (mother)
Working with Zac has improved my math skills greatly! I went from being completely lost and almost failing with a 60% to following along well and having an in-depth understanding. My average is now over 80%! I would recommend Zac to anyone that is struggling with math.
-Helen R., Grade 10
Hi Zac - the below message is from (son's name) math teacher. You've been an amazing help to him - thank you so much!!
Teacher's Email: (son's name) scored 90% on his mid-term! I am so proud of him. We are definitely back on track. He doesn't know this yet but feel free to tell him.
We are looking forward to continue the wonderful tutoring you have provided for our son. In just a short time, he has more confidence in math class and with his tests.
Dear Zac, Thanks so much for your observations. I'm glad I was able to find you for (son's name) and I will keep you posted about his exam. I agree that impatience is his worst enemy, and I'm pleased that you were able to point that out, and help him keep his confidence.
