About Jonathan


Bio

I attended UCSB, with studies abroad in Alaska, New Zealand, and India, and received a degree in Geography. I began tutoring math in high school and have always enjoyed teaching and working with students. As a substitute teacher, I worked at over 20 schools in the Bay Area, private and public, and saw the need for more individualized education. I led an after-school math program at Oakland Tech and began my own tutoring business in the East Bay which was successfully built on referrals. ...

I attended UCSB, with studies abroad in Alaska, New Zealand, and India, and received a degree in Geography. I began tutoring math in high school and have always enjoyed teaching and working with students. As a substitute teacher, I worked at over 20 schools in the Bay Area, private and public, and saw the need for more individualized education. I led an after-school math program at Oakland Tech and began my own tutoring business in the East Bay which was successfully built on referrals. Desiring a more collaborative environment, I began working as a teacher/mentor at Fusion Academy in Walnut Creek. In my work as an educator, I have 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, I share my love for growth and learning with my 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.
