About Jonathan

Jonathan attended UCSB, with studies abroad in Alaska, New Zealand, and India, and received his degree in Geography. Jonathan began tutoring math in high school and has always enjoyed teaching and working with students. As a substitute teacher, he worked at over 20 schools in the Bay Area, private and public, and saw the need for more individualized education. Jonathan led an after-school math program at Oakland Tech and began his own tutoring business in the East Bay which was successfully built on referrals. He then left the Bay Area to travel for a year, visiting Eastern Europe, Hawaii, and South America, as well as working as a multi-state wilderness trip leader. Upon returning to the Bay Area, Jonathan began working as a teacher/mentor at Fusion Academy in Walnut Creek. In his work as an educator, Jonathan has seen the importance of helping students strengthen their executive functioning skills and empowering them to take ownership of their education. As a teacher and coach, Jonathan shares his love for growth and learning with his students.

My students range from middle school through college. I often work with students with various learning challenges and gear my teaching strategies towards individual students.

I creatively approach each subject and student. I am patient and playful, and always strive to make learning fun.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra is one of my tutoring specialties. I have a knack for it and love helping my students with it.

Algebra 2

I work with students in Algebra 1 and 2.

American History

I completed AP History in high school. I took many history classes in college. I tutored a semester of US History to a student in Piedmont. The students find it helpful to have someone to discuss historical events and repetition to memorize dates.

Biology

I have tutored high school Biology for the past three years. Biology is one of my strongest subjects.

Geography

I am passionate about teaching geography. I graduated with a BA in Geography from UCSB. I love teaching students about human and physical geography.

I began tutoring Algebra 2 in high school. I spent a semester tutoring Algebra and Geometry with the Sylvan Learning Center in Piedmont. I led after-school Algebra and Geometry tutoring at Oakland Tech.

Guitar

I have 14 years of experience playing guitar and have recorded 7 albums of original music. I am knowledgeable in music theory and took several music theory classes in college.

I am patient and an experienced teacher who enjoys sharing my love of music.

I teach folk, blues, pop, and rock guitar. I also teach my students music theory and how to improvise and solo.

ISEE

I have worked with students prepping for the ISEE. I help assess where they need improvement and work with them on creating a study plan. I am also an experienced math tutor and help students with the concepts on the math sections of the test.

Songwriting

I have been a musician for almost 20 years, playing piano, guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, clarinet, saxophone, and shakuhachi. I have been writing music for over 15 years. I have recorded 8 albums of my own music.

Study Skills

I have worked for Sylvan Tutoring. I currently work for Fusion Academy as a teacher, and I also work for an Academic Coaching company where we specialize in teaching study skills. On top of that I have 3 years of tutoring experience.

World History

I completed AP History in high school. I took many history classes in college. I tutored a semester of US History to a student in Piedmont. The students find it helpful to have someone to discuss historical events and repetition to memorize dates.
