Intro:

I recently graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Operations Research Engineering; I moved to Plano for full-time employment.

Teaching Experience:

I've tutored more than 60 students for more than 600 hours of total instruction in the DFW area in high school and collegiate subjects and standardized tests. I excelled in statistics in college and as a result was asked to teach for Cornell’s Learning Strategies Center (where I taught for 2 years). In Dallas, my emphasis has been on trigonometry, calculus and statistics.

Teaching Philosophy:

In high school, students are often taught ‘how’ to attack a problem (memorization), but rarely do teachers shed light on the ‘why’ students are doing what they are doing. I believe that if students understand the ‘why,’ good grades and great test scores will follow suit. All students can learn math ‘tricks,’ but those who understand the ‘why’ can invent them. To this end I teach math.

Test and Coursework Credentials:

I scored 35/36 on ACT Math, 780/800 on SAT Math and 790/800 on GRE Quantitative. I have taken all math courses up to Calculus BC in high school and up to Stochastic Calculus in college.

Why do I tutor?

It's challenging and it's fun. I've found that as satisfying as it is to learn a difficult subject, and it is far more fulfilling to be able to give that knowledge to someone else. It's amazing how many students don't realize how intelligent they are until they've been taught in a way that accommodates their learning style. As I teach students new ways to learn, they teach me new ways to teach.

I can provide references, my resume, detailed coursework and/or a phone-in person screening if requested.

My daughter just had her initial calculus session with Johnathan, and it was a very positive learning experience.

Johnathan's teaching style is not just of a good tutor, but of a perceptive teacher who knows where the student needs to go. He first asks the student questions to see where the weak areas are in the understanding, while at the same time teaching the missing concepts by leading the student into his/her own discovery. With Johnathan, the student's mind remains engaged and challenged the entire session. If you are interested in really learning the concepts rather than just coming up with answers, Johnathan is your tutor! Thank you, Johnathan!

Jonathan has been great working with both my son and his girlfriend as they work on their pre-calculus skills. He is patient and practical with the kids and is really committed to their academic success. I highly recommend Jonathan as a math tutor.

Johnathan has been working with my son on Pre Calculus for the past two months. He is very detailed, knowledgeable and informative. He has spent a lot of time going through problems in a step by step format. My son's problem solving strategies have greatly improved through Johnathan's instruction. My son and I highly recommend Johnathan!

After two other tutors that didn't explain concepts clearly, I finally understand the math!

Johnathan is awesome! I'm so glad I found him.

Johnathan prepared me for the math portion of the GRE and taught me the material in only a short time. He was very patient and adjusted his teaching method to my individual learning style. I would rec this tutor if you are a student that needs a lot of help or just a little, he can get you up to speed fast. I am ready for my test now!

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Cumulatively, I have more than 40 hours of tutoring experience in ACT/SAT math and GRE/GMAT math.

I have more than 60 hours of tutoring experience in Calculus.

I have more than 40 hours of tutoring experience in each of the following subjects: Trig, Pre-calculus, Calculus and Statistics.
