About Jonathan

I have a wide variety of teaching experience from middle school through law school and adult education. I have taught math, English, history, law and business. I have tutored all of these, plus SAT, LSAT and other test prep, and Economics. I have helped my own children achieve their goals: a doctor and a lawyer.

I have two years of experience as a classroom math teacher. I love of math and had a 760 SAT math score. I have years of experience tutoring SAT math. and a deep understanding how students learn math. I also have written many test preparation workbooks in English, reading, grammar, writing and math.

My approach to tutoring is to
1) evaluate students to see where they need help
2) determine which approach best suits a student's learning style
3) teach with examples and lots of practice
4) provide extensive encouragement and positive reinforcement

I hope you will contact me to learn more and schedule an appointment.

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.

Common Core

I have tutored Common Core HS English And Math. I have authored Common Core test prep workbooks for Grades 3-8 in math, reading and writing. My workbooks are published by Queue, Inc. and are available through Amazon.
