Hi everyone, I am an experienced tutor of over 5 years with expertise in a wide range of subjects and a great track record. I have a wide range of subjects that I tutor, but my area of expertise is in Math, Science, ACT/SAT/PSAT, English and many other areas listed below. I'm a lifelong learner and love to help others not only understand the material they are learning, but even begin to enjoy it. For many students there's nothing more satisfying than having that "I get it!" moment and their hard work paying off in the end. This is why tutoring is what I love to do. I have a bachelor's degree in Psychology from Metropolitan State University and one more degree in progress (Chemistry). I've been a Teaching Assistant there multiple semesters in subjects including Pharmacology, Psychology, and Chemistry. I'm also a Research Assistant with two professors, a neuroscientist and a chemist. Next year I plan to attend CU School of Pharmacy to fulfill my dream of becoming a clinical pharmacist.
Enough about me though, let's talk about what is important to you.
My tutoring method works by helping students learn content, concepts, problem-solving, test-taking skills, and to develop the confidence they need to succeed. I listen carefully to my students and work with them to devise strategies that work for them. Each student is unique and every session is personalized depending on which area the student needs help with at that time.
The best approach to get the most efficient and effective tutoring is for me to get to know how you're doing on a subject before we meet. I encourage students to email me links/pictures of their homework, exam reviews, past exams, and even take a diagnostic/practice test for subjects such as the SAT/ACT. Not only does this save time once we meet, but I offer this on-going planning/evaluation stage for my tutoring students at no charge.
What parents and students are saying about me:
"Our daughter started working with Jon this past May (2012) with the goal of increasing her initial ACT score of 23 as much as possible in order to apply to some very prestigious universities. During the 3 months we worked with him, he was always on time, very prepared, positive, patient, and knew exactly what skills to teach. The end result was an 8 point increase on the September ACT (a composite score of 31). We were thrilled since this puts our daughter into an entirely different category of applicants. I would not hesitate to recommend Jon to any family. Thank you for everything you have done for Laura." - Celia M.
