About Jonathan


Bio

I graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Sciences in Electrical Engineering, and then went on to matriculate with the Class of 2014 at the University of Alabama School of Medicine. As a proud new father, I have currently taken a temporary leave from my last year of medical studies to tend to my new responsibilities. However, I am keen on using this time to simultaneously teach and thus help others pursue their own dreams.

I graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Sciences in Electrical Engineering, and then went on to matriculate with the Class of 2014 at the University of Alabama School of Medicine. As a proud new father, I have currently taken a temporary leave from my last year of medical studies to tend to my new responsibilities. However, I am keen on using this time to simultaneously teach and thus help others pursue their own dreams.

I spent three years in undergrad serving as a Teaching Assistant in Physics II, a notorious weed-out class--there I developed skills breaking down difficult concepts and helping students understand and master the material. The past two years of my life have been very patient-oriented and thus centered on adopting empathy, patience, and active listening. Additionally, I am accustomed to working in a multicultural environment that emphasizes inclusion. I hope to translate these skills to my role as a tutor. I am an accommodating and versatile individual with the talent to develop inspiring hands-on lessons that will capture any student’s imagination and breed success. Moreover, my most recent experiences as a father create the promise for a warm and caring teacher who wants all children to be successful learners. I will work to create a learning atmosphere that is stimulating, encouraging, and adaptive to the varied needs of all types of learners.

SAT Math

I received a 1540 overall (max 1600) on the SAT, including a 790 on the Mathematics portion, as well as an 800 (max 800) on the SAT II - Mathematics. In high school, I placed first in a number of Math Team competitions and completed Calculus III, Statistics, and Differential Equations; I then expanded upon my mathematical knowledge at Georgia Tech with myriad math-based engineering courses, Linear Algebra, and Random Signals. I practiced professionally as an electrical engineer prior to medical school, and currently teach math ranging from Elementary Math through Differential Equations and Discrete Math. I work to formulate an engaging lesson plan for any learning style, and endeavor to make a frequently under-appreciated subject accessible and interesting to any student. Finally, I have experience professionally and personally preparing students for standardized tests.

Highly effective

Jonathan was extremely helpful for our Mech. Engineering student. He cleared up concepts for her in a Circuits class, giving her a new way to approach problems. We will be using Jonathan again.

Excellent tutor

Jonathan was very knowledgeable and presented the material in a way that I understood. He was very patient with my questions. I would highly, highly recommend this tutor.

Knowledgeable tutor

Jonathan tutored my son in Physics I right before exams when his regular tutor couldn't help. He was great and really helped him cover a lot of material in a small amount of time. We would definitely use him for Physics II when the time comes.

Good start

We've had one lesson with Jonathan and plan to do more. His initial assessment of my 15 year old son seems remarkably insightful; talked about the importance of understanding concepts versus rote memorization/application.

Simply excellent

My 16 year old is being guided by Jonathan and has reported nothing but positive and effective work. We have expanded our lessons to include ACT prep and are expecting great results.

Great Quantitative Analysis Tutor

Jonathan was great at breaking down the basics of statistics to help me gain a better understanding that was useful in completing more complex problems.

Great tutor, easy to work with!

This tutor was perfect for what was needed to work on PSAT math prep, understands the material and is able to explain thoroughly.

Patient, Very Helpful, and Determined

He was able to help me in a bit of my work due to the fact it was so much! But the work we did together, he knew and taught excellent!

Highly recommended!

Jonathan helped me prepare for final exams in Physics and Cal III. He was very knowledgeable in both subjects and did a really good job of explaining things to me. He was also very personable. I would highly recommend him.
