Education:

I graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Operations Research Engineering. I’ve been working in Financial Services for the past three years.

Experience/Qualifications:

I’ve tutored more than 60 students, for 600 hours of instruction, in DFW high school and college curricula. At Cornell, I excelled in math. I was asked to consult for Cornell’s Learning Strategies Center, where I taught Calculus and Statistics for 2 years.

I scored in the 99th percentile on ACT Math, SAT Math and GRE Quantitative sections. I scored “5s” on several AP exams, including Calculus and Statistics.

Calculus and Statistics courses

Given my experience with DFW high school and college curricula, I offer small group structured courses for Calculus and Statistics. This is a cost-effective opportunity to get ahead in high school, or prepare for AP or college entrance exams. For more information, please reach out.

Teaching Philosophy:

Students are often taught ‘how’ to attack a problem with memorization, but rarely the ‘why’ behind the method of attack. All students can learn math ‘tricks,’ those who understand the ‘why’ can invent them. To this end I teach..

Why I tutor:

It's challenging and it's fun! It’s satisfying to learn a difficult subject, but it is far more fulfilling to help someone else learn! 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.

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.
