About Jonathan

I will only be available as a tutor until the middle of December 2011. After that, I will be getting married and moving out of the country.

I have been tutoring math on a volunteer or professional capacity for ten years and I spent the years from fall 2007 to spring 2009 tutoring at private centers with students aging from early elementary school through high school. This covered a range of subjects, but my specialty is math. I have also tutored numerous students at the college level.

As a student, I began taking math courses at colleges after 7th grade and took one each summer from then through high school. Having taken different math classes at several schools during this period, I have seen a variety of teaching styles. I earned perfect scores during that time on the SAT I Math component, the SAT IIC Math Test, and the AP Calculus BC Test. After that I studied math at St. Mary's College, a school which emphasizes communication and cooperative learning in all subjects. I am currently exploring my career options, but am leaning towards pursuing a teaching credential to work as a high school math teacher.

It is difficult for me to describe my tutoring process in much detail because it centers around the student. My first task is to assess his/her level of understanding and then work to find the best way to communicate the subject matter. My priorities include establishing a confidence in the student such that he/she feels comfortable asking questions and telling me what does not make sense. Nothing makes me feel better than knowing that I have helped someone achieve a goal.

For any further information, feel free to contact me.

Great tutor — John tutors my 16 year old son in Algebra II and Physics. Physics is his biggest challenge. Since John has been tutoring him, my son has made significant improvements in his understanding of Physics. His teacher has also remarked on his improvements. John is very patient with him and explains everything thoroughly but also challenges him to figure things out for himself. We are very happy w ...
