About Jonathan


Bio

I have a Master's degree in Statistics from San Jose State University. For the past two years I have been tutoring students in R, probability, and statistics both online and on campus at SJSU.

I was a statistics tutor for SASS (Student Athlete Success Services), and I tutored student athletes at SJSU one-on-one. Many of the athletes were very busy and had demanding travel and training schedules due to their sports commitments. I helped every one of my students pass their statistics classes...

I have a Master's degree in Statistics from San Jose State University. For the past two years I have been tutoring students in R, probability, and statistics both online and on campus at SJSU.

I was a statistics tutor for SASS (Student Athlete Success Services), and I tutored student athletes at SJSU one-on-one. Many of the athletes were very busy and had demanding travel and training schedules due to their sports commitments. I helped every one of my students pass their statistics classes when many of them thought they are just terrible at math would for sure fail.

I was also a drop-in tutor at the SJSU Math Lab. Students would come by the math lab for help with a variety of more advanced stats classes from Probability Theory, to R, to Mathematical Statistics.

The students I have tutored have been a variety of ages from late teens to late 60's, and a variety of skill levels and comfort levels with math and statistics.

Together, we can work on whatever your personal goals are. Do you want to just barely pass the class? That's fine, we can do that. Do you want to become a wizard of combinatorics? Let's do it!

I'm good at finding more than one way to explain something. I don't give up until my student understands. Sometimes it takes more than one approach. The cool thing about probability and statistics is that there's often more than one way to solve a problem, and there's also often more than one way to interpret the results of a problem. Often times, the key is to gain experience by seeing as many problems as possible, so you gain intuition about problems you will come across in the future.

We're all stuck at home these days, so reach out to me and let's schedule a time to meet virtually. I look forward to hearing from you!

Great tutor!

Jonathan brainstormed with me and helped me step through my assignment to determine the best path forward for my R analysis. We talked about everything from data sources to R functionality. It was very helpful.

Sam, 1 lesson with Jonathan

Very Helpful

Jonathan is very knowledgeable in R and a very patient instructor. He communicates the nuances in a manner that a person new to R can understand and apply to solve to problems.

David, 4 lessons with Jonathan

Smart and methodical

Jonathan helped me with running r functions including some that he was unfamiliar with for a graduate level class. Despite this challenge he quickly was able to adapt and he was able to figure out what I needed to do for my homework, and teach it back to me. So essentially he's a fast learner, and teaches simply enough that I got it.

Tyler, 3 lessons with Jonathan

great teacher, very knowledgeable

Thanks Jonathan for clearing up some of my thoughts and helping me identify key tests to preform for my analysis.

Dave, 1 lesson with Jonathan

Great teacher!

Jonathan S was a great teacher and walked me through every step on R! He was very patient and explained everything and we went through it

Bridget, 2 lessons with Jonathan

Knowledgable and patient

I'm an economist trying to apply some commands on a huge dataset to get new variables using specific equations. Doing that using excel is time-wasting. Jonathan helped me to do that in just 15 minutes.

Sara, 2 lessons with Jonathan

very knowledgeable and helpful

Helped me in my theory of prob class. Clarified topics I was unsure on, was able to quickly problem solve and provide correct answers

Noah, 4 lessons with Jonathan

Very knowledgeable!

I am quite new to R. Jonathan helped me to understand some of the concepts that I was struggling with. He was more than willing to break down functions that I didn’t understand and let me work through them so that I can do them without assistance.

Debbie, 1 lesson with Jonathan

Patient and knowledgeable...

Awesome assistance with tweaking and reviewing my assignments and I learned new things that were not in my class. As I have no Mathematics background and am learning it in 8 weeks a tutor was necessary. Jonathan is working with me to get me up to speed.

Brenda, 3 lessons with Jonathan

Awesome, knowledgeable, and helpful tutor.

We worked on a coding assignment that I was struggling with and he showed me may ways to approach each problem. I came out of the session knowing several ways in which I could have gone about doing each part of the project. I also learned how to utilize many new R packages and functions which will further help me in the lass. It was very useful and I learned a lot!
