Hello, my name is Jonathan. I'm an applied mathematics major from the University of California, Merced. I am currently a graduate student in the applied mathematics program at CSULB. I had many hours worth of volunteering as a tutor for the UC Merced Math Society. While serving as the co-president of the club for 2 years, I was able to directly oversee the many tutoring sessions for monthly meetings and tutoring meetings. My specialties are mathematics, test prep subjects such as PSAT math, SAT math, GRE math, and Advanced Placement (AP) mathematics. I also have experience tutoring Chinese while volunteering as a teacher's assistant at a Chinese school.
I teach by focusing on having students understand the material rather than memorizing it. I use examples and real-world applications, show proper problem solving skills by guiding a student through examples and common questions, and give many types of practice problems for the student to be fully comfortable with a subject. I am also flexible with my tutoring methods if it can help a student learn better.
Hourly rates are not final, as they can be changed for families with special needs. Please feel free to contact me, as rates are negotiable. Hello, my name is Jonathan.

Jonathan helped me to accomplish what I felt was impossible. He is patient, considerate, timely, and above all, an excellent tutor. I cannot fully express my gratitude for helping me get through my summer Calculus II course. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a math tutor. Thanks Jonathan!!
Jonathan is always well prepared and is an invaluable help to our son. He helped him with the most difficult Calculus problems and helped build my son's understanding.
Jonathan is an amazing tutor and has helped my son so much. My son came from a French school and had a lot of catching up to do when he transferred to an American high school since math is taught differently and in a different language. My son went from a C in AP Calculus to an A in one semester. I can't say enough good things about Jonathan!
Jonathan helped me achieved my goal to obtain a Grade 5 for AP-Calculus AB. Johnathan is very reliable, punctual, attentive and professional. I would recommend him to anyone who needs help in math.
Jonathan helped my 7th grader with Algebra in a way that I couldn't. He quickly assessed where assistance was needed and explained concepts in a way that she could understand them. Jonathan always responds to emails quickly and is very flexible. I highly recommend him! Don't tell him, but I think he has set his rates too low for how excellent he is!
Jonathan has been patient with my daughter when tutoring her in Physics. He asks questions designed to get her to think, answers any questions she has, and assesses quickly her level of understanding. Her grade has improved, and she has more confidence in the subject matter.
Jonathan is a great tutor and is always willing to help. He is very flexible and I really appreciate it.
Reliable, punctual, very good at communicating complex concepts. Good with the kids. Get him if you can; you won't regret it.
Jonathan helped me with my SAT math preparation. He taught me to pace myself and made me feel better about the math portion of the SAT. He was patient, nice, informal, and helpful.
Jonathan came out to our house on very short notice and did an excellent job tutoring our son on his calculus AP BC. He spent more than two hours patiently helping our son understand concepts that were causing him difficulty. He was courteous, professional and knowledgeable. We highly recommend him and wouldn't hesitate to call on him again for future math needs. We are very happy with the experience.
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.
