About Jonathan

Hi everyone,

I am a full-time tutor with over 5 years of experience helping students succeed in Math, Science, ACT/SAT/GRE exams, English, and more. I'm a lifelong learner and love to help others not only understand the material they are learning, but enjoy learning about it and applying it to the real world.

I have two Bachelors of Science degrees: one in Biochemistry and a second in Psychology from Metropolitan State University of Denver. I was a Teaching Assistant & Supplemental Instructor for a total of 6 semesters in subjects including Chemistry, Psychology, and Math. I was also a Research Assistant for my Biochemistry and Neuroscience professors.

But enough about me, let's talk about what's really important… How can I help you?

My tutoring method works by helping students learn content, concepts, problem-solving, test-taking skills, and to develop the confidence they need to succeed (confidence is surprisingly important!). I listen carefully to my students and develop strategies that work well for them. Each student is unique and every session is personalized depending on which area the student needs help with at that time.

As with most things in life, the best approach to receiving the most efficient and effective tutoring is communication. Learning takes a ton of effort, so if you can familiarize me with your goals and specific struggles, we can focus on what needs to be covered without it feeling like a chore. I encourage students to email me links/pictures of their homework, exam reviews, past exams, and even take a diagnostic/practice test for subjects such as the SAT/ACT/GRE. Not only does this save time once we meet, but I offer this on-going planning/evaluation stage for my tutoring students at no charge.

For many students, there's nothing more satisfying than having that "I get it!" moment and to have their hard work pay off in the end. This is why tutoring is what I love to do.

If you need assistance in math, science, college entrance test prep or graduate school test prep, please don't hesitate to contact me.

I have several reviews from parents and students available in the Testimonials section.

Thanks for your time and good luck on your journey to success!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT English

I've tutored dozens of students to scores of over 30, and many more who have increased their scores 3-8 points. Once recent example is my student Ben, who started with a 24 composite before studying with me. He earned a 29 composite after 7 sessions with me, and I'm continuing to work with him in his attempt to score 30 or higher to make him eligible for college scholarships.

Algebra 1

I've been teaching Algebra and many other math subjects for my entire tutoring career. It's the first subject I started teaching over 5 years ago and is one of my most popular subjects. I'm confident in all areas of algebra and can help you or your student get the results you're looking for.

Organic Chemistry

I excelled in my Organic Chemistry courses, and have also successfully synthesized the anti-seizure drug Dilantin in my Organic Chemistry 2 Lab. During college I was a Supplemental Instructor in chemistry at my university for 4 semesters.

You will see results! — Jonathan tutored my son for a couple of months in order to prepare him to retake his ACT's. The improvement was remarkable and consequently, he was able to get accepted to SD School of Mines. Jonathan was always on time, very professional, and knew which tactics and strategies for ACT testing would have the most impact. Would highly recommend! ...
