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.

Helpful and efficient tutor

He was very helpful in my assignment about R. I knew basically nothing about the assignment. He knew everything and we got it done quickly. He also explained everything well.

Michael , 8 lessons with Jonathan

Personable, patient, and illuminatingly helpful

Jonathan and I talked about bootstrapping in R, coming up with bootstrap confidence intervals, using for loops, using the 'apply' family of functions, and sampling methods in general, all within an hour. Jonathan always checked his pace and made sure I was clear on the concepts and applications before moving onto the next topic. I'll definitely be reaching out to Jonathan again in the future for more help!

Andrew, 8 lessons with Jonathan

Patience. Knowledge. Professionalism.

I feel like I can ask anything, no matter how simple, and he will explain to me in a way I can understand. I very much appreciate that. Some tutors forget what it's like to not know or understand concepts.

Julie, 10 lessons with Jonathan

great

I enjoy working with Jonathan. He is thoughtful and quick. I recommend him to anyone learning R. I don't have anything else to write but there is a character limit.

Kevin, 8 lessons with Jonathan

Knowledgeable tutor

Jonathan is an incredible tutor. He not only helped me with an R assignment I’d really been struggling with, but also showed me different ways he would approach it while still using code that fit with the instructions I had for my assignment. He was also very patient and answered all my questions as I was learning. I would highly recommend him as a tutor!

Lizzet, 4 lessons with Jonathan

Incredibly knowledgeable and adept at R

Was so happy to find and work with Jonathan, he was able to help me very quickly and was wonderful. Will definitely use again. This is insisting on 160 characters so I will keep typing until it is accepted
