I'm an applied mathematics major with physics emphasis from the University of California, Merced. I had many hours worth of volunteering as a tutor for the UC Merced Math Society. While serving as the co-president of the club for 2 years, I was able to directly oversee the many tutoring sessions for monthly meetings and tutoring meetings. My specialties are mathematics, test prep subjects such as PSAT math, SAT math, GRE math, and Advanced Placement (AP) mathematics. I also have experience tutoring Chinese while volunteering as a teacher's assistant at a Chinese school.

I teach by focusing on having students understand the material rather than memorizing it. I use examples and real-world applications, show proper problem solving skills by guiding a student through examples and common questions, and give many types of practice problems for the student to be fully comfortable with a subject. I am also flexible with my tutoring methods if it can help a student learn better.

Hourly rates are not final, as they can be changed for families with special needs. Please feel free to contact me, as rates are negotiable.

Acadamic Savior — Jonathan helped me to accomplish what I felt was impossible. He is patient, considerate, timely, and above all, an excellent tutor.
