Hello, my name is Jonathan and currently I have an MBA in Sustainable Enterprise at Dominican University.
I received a BA in Sociology at California State University Chico and received my AA at the Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC). While at the SRJC I was on the men's soccer team. During that time I also worked for the Santa Rosa Department of Recreation as a camp counselor.
I have a number of years experience coaching and tutoring elementary to high school aged children. I ran an afterschool Physical Education program at Steel Lane and Lincoln Elementary School in Santa Rosa. I was also the assistant coach for the wrestling team at Herbert Slater Middle School. During my years at the SRJC, I helped my father (who is a 3rd grade teacher) tutor students in English and Math.
After I graduated from Chico State, I received my TEFL Certificate. Although I never was able to teach English overseas, I have tutored second language learners in the United States. It was a wonderful and enlightening experience.
During my time after Chico State, I worked for Ikon Office Solutions in the heart of San Francisco. Although I was working full time, it never detracted me from continuing my education. I took Spanish and Economics (Macro and Micro) at Community College of San Francisco. My dream at the time was to go travel in Latin America, learn Spanish, and then come back to the United States and enter graduate school. Fortunately with a lot of hard work and determination, I was able to make this dream come true!
I am a very patient and hands on instructor. I realize that not all people learn the same way. When I teach, I try to explain the subject in as many ways as possible until the individual is able to grasp the concept. I believe that anyone can lean anything as long as they have the motivation and patience.
Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
