About Jonathan


Bio

I am a professional software engineer/data scientist and I have a Master's degree in Statistics from San Jose State University. While getting my masters, I tutored other students in R, probability, and statistics both online and on campus at SJSU. After graduating, I started tutoring on Wyzant, where I've amassed over 1,000 hours and over 500 five-star reviews.

My best topics are R programming, probability, and statistics, and I'm also comfortable tutoring in python and Java.

I am a professional software engineer/data scientist and I have a Master's degree in Statistics from San Jose State University. While getting my masters, I tutored other students in R, probability, and statistics both online and on campus at SJSU. After graduating, I started tutoring on Wyzant, where I've amassed over 1,000 hours and over 500 five-star reviews.

My best topics are R programming, probability, and statistics, and I'm also comfortable tutoring in python and Java.

A little background about my time as a tutor at San Jose State: 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, whether it be mastering the subject, or just simply passing your class. 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. In probability and statistics 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.

He's helped me understand Stats and R Programming- Bless his soul

Jonathan has been with me through the thick and thin as I am beginning a Data Science Degree and I have absolutely no background in R and very little Stats background and he's been kind, patient, and he's knowledgeable. I appreciate all his help and will continue using him as a tutor!

Helps with what things means.

Working through problems Jonathon helps me understand the concept and reasons why. I am working on R studio and learning new script, so the more practice I can get the better.

Sue, 6 lessons with Jonathan

Great Session!

Very productive session where we covered my stats project and my computer programming homework. What I like about Jonathan is that he's consise and he takes time explain what we're doing and why we're doing it.

Adriana , 6 lessons with Jonathan

He was knowledgeable and patient conveying the information in a efficient manner.

We worked on some R problems involving random numbers, defining functions, using matrix algebra, using for loops, drawing histograms, named probability distributions such as the normal distribution, the binomial distribution. Jonathan was able to work with Jupiter Hub in order to resolve the R problems mentioned above. It was great experience and I looking forward in working with him soon. I definitely recommend him to anyone that is in need of a good tutor that knows his craft.

Amani, 3 lessons with Jonathan

Great Tutor

Jonathan tolerates my total lack of competence in R and statistics, and he takes the time to help me understand it. Jonathan will scaffold things when I need it, or let me take the lead when I'm understanding. He's a good tutor. Understands how much help is needed
