About Jonathan

Do you want to learn how to write a short story, play, or movie script? I can help with online or New Haven based tutoring! My love for mentoring others in the art of storytelling stems from my own growing understanding of this extremely collaborative process. No story is written or told in a vacuum, and my favorite moments as a student have been spent listening to other's stories and finding ways to connect them with the world around me. As a Dartmouth '13 undergraduate, I studied dramatic writing and literature while also directing and writing short films and plays with classmates. I took a gap year to direct and edit an award-winning documentary which follows the stories of several paralyzed friends and my own journey from paralysis to global advocacy of human rights.

I grew up in Hamden, CT and when I was 10 years old my Dad gave me the best Christmas present ever - unfettered access to his Sony camcorder, which I would use year-round to make movies with my friends. The range of subject matter grew as I did. First it was Lego action flicks, followed by absurd backyard horror (middle school obsession with special effects), and finally maturing with historical dramas and public service ads (featuring the dangers of caffeine) in high school. Extreme Unicycling was my sport of choice in those years, so naturally the camera was involved there as well! Alongside my budding amateur filmmaking career, I also began acting in a traveling choir in 6th Grade, culminating with my high school senior year performance as Tony in "West Side Story." All of these experiences were significant in shaping my story and story-telling ability as it stands today. Let me help encourage you on your journey as well!

I have experience in online English tutoring and mentoring the creative writing process with students from 6th to 12th grade. I am currently also employed as a tutor for Ivy Labs Education, an academic consulting firm in New Haven geared towards foreign exchange students from China. My non-profit work and volunteer experience has landed me in Egypt, India, and Colombia, though I only speak English fluently.

Do something creative, no matter the weather! Grab your favorite hot drink, computer, and let's write!
