About Jonathan

Hello, my name is Jonathan. I graduated with honors from the University of Central Florida with a degree in Political Science and minors in Psychology and Judaic Studies. I have tutored for a few years and specialize in social sciences, history, English language skills, computers, religion, chess, and math. I also do basic tutoring for Hebrew language studies as well as some other fields.

I believe each student is different and learns in his or her own way. As such, each student requires a unique goal-oriented study plan. In order to create the right agenda, I start by assessing each pupils strengths and weaknesses. I then create an individualized study plan that factors in pace, material level, understanding, objectives and attention span. So, for example, someone with a low attention span may have a 30 minute to 1 hour session whereas someone with a large attention span may have a 1 or 2 hour session.

Generally speaking, I am flexible in terms of session times and meeting places. For both our convenience I ask for a 24 hour cancellation notice.

At the end of the day I aim for results. I break down large complicated material into smaller pieces and tackle them one at a time. I work with students of all ages and always solicit questions and input from my pupils.

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.


I am a candidate master with a rating of 2074 in Israel. I have won several tournaments in the Florida and Israel area. I conducted many hours of community service teaching children Chess in the Stormont Kings Chess Club. I was the president of my university and high school chess teams.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored elementary school children (and older) in Reading, Math, Geography, and Science for a few years. I spent a year in Israel teaching children to read, speak and write in English. I did my High-School community service in a children's chess club where I formally learned techniques for teaching children how to focus and behave properly.


I took Hebrew I and Hebrew II in college. I lived in Israel from 2012-2013 for about one year. I have a Judaic Studies minor and Speak Intermediate level Hebrew. I am familiar with Rosetta Stone and Pimzlur language learning software.

Microsoft Windows

I completed PC Support I and II courses. I have been using a windows computer for over 20 years. I am proficient with all of the Microsoft Windows products (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). I am familiar with windows versions 95, 98, XP, 7, and Vista.


I took photography I, II, and III in high school. I know how to develop photographs in a darkroom. Some of my photos were displayed in a public showing.

Political Science

I have my honors degree in Political Science from the University of Central Florida. I have worked on several national and local political election campaigns. I wrote my college thesis on the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.


I aced World Religions I and II in college. I have a Minor in Judaic Studies. I received several lectures and educational tours to Christian, Muslim and Jewish Holy Sites in the Middle East including the Western Wall, Dome of the Rock, and Church of the Holy Sepulcher. I have taken Talmud courses from the Chabad Organization.

Social Studies

In college I was a Political Science major. I took a multitude of Social Science courses (and finished with an A average). I have minors/ Certificates in Judaic Studies and Psychology. I have taken a variety of International Relations, Humanities and World Religion courses. I have tutored several underclassmen in Social Studies coursework and plan to get my master's degree in Middle Eastern History.

Study Skills

Organization and time management are the key to mastering good study skills. I have experience helping younger college freshman make class specific outlines and creating a daily planner. I also believe repetition is crucial so I advise all students to make and use flash cards.

Great all around — Jonathan is great with my son. He was able to build a connection with my son immediately. Which is a very difficult thing since my son tends to not think fondly of teachers and absolutely hates studying or doing homework. At the end of their first lesson my son came away confident in the knowledge he gained and even commented about how much he liked Jonathan. I truly believe that the lessons w ...
