My son is a freshman and needed help in biology. We contacted Johnny after seeing so many positive reviews. The reviews are entirely justified! Johnny is a terrific tutor in so many ways, but let me highlight three.
1) Johnny is always super prepared. Before my son's first lesson, Johnny asked which textbook he was using and which chapter he was studying. Johnny then devised a lesson plan specifically for that material. He did that every time that he met with my son.
2) Johnny makes learning more intuitive and even fun. He knows a lot of tricks, mnemonics, etc. He also pointed my son to websites where he could devise flashcards and test his knowledge of the material.
3) Johnny has excellent interpersonal skills. He is an affable young man, and my son felt comfortable with him immediately. Johnny kept the tone positive, so my son never got discouraged, even when the material was difficult.
My son's grades in biology and understanding of the subject matter improved immeasurably. Unfortunately, Johnny is moving to San Diego. Our loss will be SoCal's gain. Good luck Johnny!
Jonathan is really good at what he does. He is very patient and always checks with his student to make sure he's not going too fast. He also provides very useful study techniques and different methods for memorization. What makes him great is that he loves what he teaches, and also loves to teach which is a perfect combination for a tutor!
Jonathan is a great tutor, especially if the help is needed in simplifying concepts. He makes sure to explain the basic information thoroughly, before slowly building on top of that towards more complex ideas. Jonathan is ready to explain any and all questions that may come from the student, and to bounce off of them so that they learn in the process that they most prefer. Tutoring is driven by questions and concepts, which leads to a good back-and-forth between the tutor and student. His enthusiasm for biology is very contagious. I'd greatly recommend Jonathan if his expertise is the topic that you're looking for -- he will (and is) a great help!
Jonathan is very knowledgeable and passionate about Biology. The session was very focused. Jonathan's enthusiasm for teaching Biology helped me to grasp the information being taught.
