My name is Jonathan H. I am a teacher at the International School, where I teach K-8 Math and Science. I have an M.A. in Japanese Studies, so I also instruct in Japanese and Spanish. I have been teaching for three years and do all Math levels up to Calc II as well as Chemistry, Biology, and intro to Physics. I lived for two years in Korea teaching ESL, and continue to teach ESL at a multicultural school.
As far as tutoring style, I always make sure that we progress as the right pace, and that a good foundation is built before moving on to the next topic. Learning a foreign language requires a lot of repetition and a lot of patience, so lessons should be interesting and never go too fast. I was born with a talent for foreign languages, but I'm also clear on why it is I pick them up so fast and how other people can use those same techniques to help themselves. Some people prefer lots of interaction, while others prefer to learn as much grammar as possible. I try to blend different techniques and personalize them for those I teach.
I have a Master's in Japanese studies, and have been taking Japanese for 5 years.
