About Jonathan

Tutoring/teaching is something I love doing. The mutual benefits between those I work with and myself are boundless. And by no means are those benefits strictly related to academia. With each new lesson, I get a great deal of satisfaction not only making a new or foreign concept make sense, but learning about the interactive personalities and idiosyncrasies of both the students I work with and myself. Everyone has a different way of doing things and trying to understand those ways is vital when it comes to interaction. Some students may grasp a concept right away while other students may need some time for it to make sense. Levels of comfort with the instructor will vary for each student. Keeping this in mind, I understand that my personality and teaching style may not work for everyone. The students and instructors I've worked with generally describe my personality as friendly and laid back and my teaching style as detailed, yet concise. If you think I could be compatible with either you or your student or if you would like to inquire more, please send me an email with any questions you may have. Thanks!



Education and Experience:

I am a student at the University of North Florida, studying Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Physics. My estimated graduation date is Spring 2018. In high school, I graduated top 10% of my class with a 4.32 GPA and 33 transfer credit hours.

Outside of my university, I am a math instructor at a math learning center. My other teaching/tutoring experience includes 100+ hours of private tutoring through Wyzant and other online tutoring centers, volunteer tutoring for 200+ hours at a local daycare, and tutoring mathematics through the National Honors Society.

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.

Excellent Precalculus tutor

My son met with Jonathan to prepare for his first big Precalculus exam. Jonathan was able to cover a lot of information in a short period of time. He explained the concepts clearly. My son even commented that he explained it as "better than the teacher". It was definitely worth the money and time to get my son the extra help he needed to gain confidence in the class rather than letting him fall b
