About Jonathan

I transitioned to California State University of Long Beach where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Geography and a Psychology minor in 2012. Going to this school gave me the experience to know how to give professional presentations, complete homework/assignments, write long term papers and study for important quizzes/finals/exams at the highest undergraduate college level.

In Spring 2015 I obtained my Certificate in Project Management from California State University of Dominguez Hills which gave me even more experience alongside my academic studies to be even more organized with projects such as with homework assignments from start to finish.

From 2005 to 2012 besides being enrolled in college I have worked with students at my middle and high school at Rolling Hills Preparatory School in helping them with their studies. This included working with 6th to 12th graders (ages twelve to eighteen) on a variety of subjects. At the middle school level this included classes such as Life Science, Social Studies, Spanish, Language Arts and Math. At the high school level I assisted with students in classes such as English honors, World History, European History, Geometry, Algebra, English Honors, Economics/Government Honors, Spanish Honors and US History Honors.

In addition, I took many subjects when working toward my undergraduate degree at CSU Long Beach. These classes consisted of all college level classes which included the following GE classes; English, Spanish, Algebra, Anthropology, Biology, Chemistry, Geology, Geography, Philosophy, Psychology, Into into Religion, Comparative World Literature and Political Science.

My upper division classes included classes toward my major and minor; Physical Geography, Intro into Geospatial Techniques, Statistics, Research Methods, Geography of South Asia, Geography of Mexico/Central America/the Carribean, Environmental Geography, Human Geography, Map Interpretation and Analyses, Land and Water Resources, Climatology, People as Agents of Environmental Change, Environmental Assessment, Politcal Geography, Biopsychology, Social Psychology, Psychology of Cognition, Sports Psychology and Directed a Thesis writing 5 term pages (5 pages each in length) about various issues in Geography.

From my time at CSU Long Beach when there were students struggling in my classes I would work with them individually or in study groups helping them complete homework assignments, writing papers and studying for important quizzes and exams. The age group consisted of these (college) students from eighteen up to thirty.

I am also a very good athlete and a trainer for a variety of sports; soccer, basketball, tennis, golf, surfing and swimming.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

American History

Throughout my high school academic career, I excelled in American history, European history and World History honors. I took classes at Rolling Hills Preparatory School where I not only did well in these classes but it led me to an A in college US History at CSU Long Beach. If you need help with studying, writing or completing assignments then please reach out to me. Thank you.

Basketball

I played junior varsity basketball player in high school where I was a starting power forward and in high school I learned the fundamentals of shooting, passing, dribbling, defense and knowing where to be on the court. I know how to teach these attributes to players working and developing their game including building the player's endurance, speed, strength and stamina on the court. I have worked with junior varsity and varsity players at my previous high school teaching these attributes and skills. Besides taking college level basketball classes in college at California State University of Long Beach I have grown up playing basketball my whole life and I know what it takes to develop into a good basketball player and I know how to applying my teachings to helping other players grow into the player they want to be.

Geography

With a Bachelor of Arts in Geography from California State University of Long Beach (2012). I know all aspects of Geography ranging from environmental, human, global studies, GIS and more. If you need help in Geography then you be assured that as your tutor I can help 100%.

Golf

I have grown up playing golf my whole life and in my teenage years and young adult hood I have taken many classes with instructors on how to improve golf skills. These skills included me being taught the proper stance, how to hold the club when swinging, how to swing and following through with the club for a perfect shot down the fairway. In addition, I have also been taught the proper mechanics of chipping and putting from instructors and it is with these skill sets of swinging, putting and chipping where I was able to teach family, friends, colleagues and fellow students the proper mechanics to the game of golf from my teens to this day. I have taken golf classes at California State University of Long Beach, played at many golf courses, been to many driving ranges and in general been involved with this amazing sport for many years; I know what it takes to be physically and mentally prepared to play the game whether preparing for a tournament or for fun.

Grammar

I have very good grammar skills. This is due to the many papers that I wrote in college, in high school and throughout my academic career. Reading and writing also played an important roll in shaping my grammar skills through my academic career as well. Grammar is important when it comes down to word organization. If you need a tutor in grammar then I am the right teacher for you.

Project Management

I have over 4 years involved in project management as a project coordinator with a couple of contractors. In addition, I received my Cerificate in project management from California State University of Dominguez Hills in Spring of 2015 where I learned project human resources and procurement management, project quality and communications management, project risk and scope management and project time and cost management. I have excellent skills using project scheduling with Microsoft Excel, using Microsoft Word to type reports, Microsoft Office for organizing projects and giving presentations to clients for specific projects. Anyone that needs help in the classroom or with a project should reach out to me for help in project management.

Proofreading

I have many years of proofreading my papers starting from middle school and all the way toward my college academic career. This experience gave me the opportunity to write better papers for my classes. In addition, I also assisted other students in helping them proofread their papers to ensure that they got the best grade possible for their class, an A! Want my assistance, then I can definitely help edit your paper to perfection.

Soccer

I have played soccer my whole life. This includes being involved in club soccer growing up/AYSO, varsity high school soccer, playing college soccer at California State University of Long Beach, taking college soccer classes, and playing in adult leagues for the past 10 years. I know how to train for passing, shooting, dribbling, control of the ball, speed, accelleration and long kicks. I have played all positions including goalkeeper as my best position and if you need a good quality soccer coach then I am the right coach for you.

Tennis

My tennis skills are very good. This is due to the training that I have received growing up playing the sport, taking classes in college and playing in clubs with other competitors. I know it all when it comes down to playing tennis. If you need an instructor to show your student(s) the basics of tennis, which includes knowing how to hit the ball backhand/forehand, work on serving, moving up and down the court, accelleration, speed, consistency and/or just for fun then I can definitely help.
