Our son had been successful in math until last year. Greg struggled with 7th grade concepts. His grade dropped significantly, and most importantly, Greg was giving up. Through his frustration, Greg just didn't seem to care.
Jonathan was able to help Greg raise his math grade during the last marking period in 2013-14. More importantly, Jonathan has rekindled Greg's approach and interest in math studies. Greg seems to have regained much of his former confidence in the subject while reviewing and accelerating concepts covered in 7th grade. We believe Greg will be well prepared to begin pre-Algebra in school year 2014-15.
I highly recommend Jonathan as a tutor.

Our son needed help with his Keystone Recovery Packet for algebra 2. Not only was Jonathan very dependable, he worked well with our son who really does not like math. Could not have completed this without Jonathan. Thanks for all your hard work!!
Always well-prepared and very thorough! Jonathan was great to work with and helped our child. We would definitely ask him to tutor any of our children in the future. Great job!
Jonathan is a very patient tutor! He takes his time and explains difficult math problems in a very easy to understand way. He is always prepared and will tailor lesson to address any problem areas. I would definitely recommend Jonathan to anyone!!
When I learned of my daughter's failing grade in calculus, her next test was in 2 days and there are only 4-5 weeks left of the school year. I came to WyzAnt in search for a tutor and Jonathan was kind enough to help us although it was the last minute begging call. Even with rush hour traffic, he arrived on time which indicated that he had intended to be early. The minute he sat down with my daughter, he spent time learning where she is with Calculus and how he could best help. He identified where my daughter was weak and tended to her with lots of patience and care. My daughter's feedback on Jonathan was also great. Jonathan had earned her respect through his knowledge and patience. I would definitely recommend Jonathan as a tutor. Since Calculus is an advanced math course in high school, I would imagine all other math-related courses would be a cake walk for Jonathan. By the way, my daughter was average at 67. In the past critical test, she got an 83 (out of 100). I was more surprised when I met with my daughter's math teacher to learn that this was a particularly difficult test and quite a few students in her class failed. Her teacher was also pleasantly surprised of the result... which makes me a very happy Dad.
This tutor has been very helpful. Every time I was unsure of how to do a problem, he would give me a few hints without telling me the answer. If I got an answer that was incorrect, he would look at my work and tell me what my mistake was. I was able to understand many homework problems that I had trouble doing.
I contacted Jonathan on very short notice for tutoring help to take a test for employment and he was not only responsive but also willing to do research to figure out what might be included on the test. Jonathan was very patient and also followed up to find out how things went. He genuinely cares about his students and is very easy to work with. Jonathan is down-to-earth, friendly, encouraging and kind. I highly recommend him!
Jonathon is open to suggestion concerning the tutoring session and does not waste time with chit chat. He is prepared and patient. Zero ego, he explains concepts in a simple manner without being condescending. Very punctual! Zero drama. He arrives early and when given the chance he even prepares notes about the lesson that I can take with me. His demeanor is very even, he can explain a single concept repeatedly without becoming impatient. I always feel comfortable asking questions and never feel as if my questions are stupid or beneath his intelligence. I simply cannot recommend this tutor enough, well worth the investment.
