Hello, my name is Jonathan. I graduated with honors from the University of Central Florida with a degree in Political Science and minors in Psychology and Judaic Studies. I have tutored for a few years and specialize in social sciences, history, English language skills, computers, religion, chess, and math. I also do basic tutoring for Hebrew language studies as well as some other fields.
I believe each student is different and learns in his or her own way. As such, each student requires a unique goal-oriented study plan. In order to create the right agenda, I start by assessing each pupils strengths and weaknesses. I then create an individualized study plan that factors in pace, material level, understanding, objectives and attention span. So, for example, someone with a low attention span may have a 30 minute to 1 hour session whereas someone with a large attention span may have a 1 or 2 hour session.
Generally speaking, I am flexible in terms of session times and meeting places. For both our convenience I ask for a 24 hour cancellation notice.
At the end of the day I aim for results. I break down large complicated material into smaller pieces and tackle them one at a time. I work with students of all ages and always solicit questions and input from my pupils.
I am a candidate master with a rating of 2074 in Israel. I have won several tournaments in the Florida and Israel area. I conducted many hours of community service teaching children Chess in the Stormont Kings Chess Club. I was the president of my university and high school chess teams.
I have tutored elementary school children (and older) in Reading, Math, Geography, and Science for a few years. I spent a year in Israel teaching children to read, speak and write in English. I did my High-School community service in a children's chess club where I formally learned techniques for teaching children how to focus and behave properly.

Great all around — Jonathan is great with my son. He was able to build a connection with my son immediately. Which is a very difficult thing since my son tends to not think fondly of teachers and absolutely hates studying or doing homework. At the end of their first lesson my son came away confident in the knowledge he gained and even commented about how much he liked Jonathan. I truly believe that the lessons w ...
