My name is Jon. I may be the ideal tutor for you.
I am a Connecticut certified teacher in Grades 7-12 in Business and History. I will complete my last Math course in the spring of 2013 and be certified in Mathematics (Grades 7-12) by the summer of 2013. I am also certified in Special Education Grades K-12. I have four years experience as a tutor in schools. I am I am presently working at a local high school as a Math tutor for regular education and Special Education students. I have also worked as a tutor at a Middle school. I also have 19 years teaching experience at Business and History at the high school level. I did my undergraduate work at Holy Cross and UCONN. I did my graduate work at CCSU and Salem State University.
I have coached boys and girls scholastic sports teams for over 40 seasons in 3 sports (soccer, basketball, and tennis) at the Varsity/J.V./Freshmen/Middle school levels. I have also been involved in a lot of other extracurricular activities.
In general, I favor a "hands-on" approach to teaching that involves a lot of interaction between the tutor and student. However, my specific methods vary according to the subject being taught and the learning style of the student. I prefer tutoring one-on-one to teaching a whole classroom of students. I try to make the tutoring sessions productive and as "painless" as possible.
I am willing to travel in the Greater Hartford area.
I look forward to tutoring you.
