Highly skilled and very patient tutor

I spent about a month tutoring with Jonathan on a regular basis for the GRE exam. I had barely covered any material before meeting with him but as I began tutoring in less than one month I was able to raise my scores significantly. He has many tricks up his sleeve on how to go about solving problems and filling in sentences. He helped me organize studying the best way I could in the given time frame and when the date came I passed the exam and got into the school I wanted. I highly recommend him. I was honestly very skeptical at first as though I had never done online tutoring, but after a month with Jonathan I achieved the score I needed and it proved to be a sound investment.

Very cooperative and understandable tutor

Jonathan gave me consistent strategies for the critical reasoning and sentence correction sections that helped me approach those problems. Jonathan was very fun to work with as he was always able to make me look forward to our lessons. He is very knowledgeable about the merit of different GMAT resources and can help with all parts of the GMAT. Not only can he explain concepts very well, but he also easily understood how I thought about different problems. Overall, he's a great tutor who will work to accommodate his students and will give you confidence in yourself before your test!

GRE Verbal review

Jonathan really helped me key in on why I’m struggling with verbal questions and how to correct it. By discussing how I originally interpreted the question, we talked together how it may be looked at differently towards getting the correct answer. I really enjoyed working with Johnathan and believe he really knows how to coach students into improving on their weaknesses

MVT - Most Valuable Tutor

Studying for a standardized test can be an onerous task. Weighing through the plethora of options in terms of preparations is similarly tedious. While well-intended students may attempt to only leverage what they can from Kaplan or Magoosh, in actuality, Jonathan is the best choice when it comes time to prepare an exam. First, he’s a talented educator and extremely knowledgeable in all facets of the tests that he specializes in. I worked with Jonathan while studying for my GRE, and what I most appreciate about Jonathan is that he’s like a machine-learning education system that carefully considers a given students’ unique learning styles, then adapts his methods in order to achieve the most optimal results. I worked with Jonathan on both math, and verbal. Together, we found “my path” through the test, meaning that not only did we practice the basic skills essential for success, we also zoned in the best way for me to take the test, whether it be prioritizing question types, budgeting time, and even strategies for levering note paper. Having someone evaluate the way that you are thinking about a question is invaluable, and cannot be duplicated with a book or online resource, both of which I had tried prior to finding Jonathan. Furthermore, as impressive as Jonathan’s own perfect GRE scores and multiple post-graduate degrees are, what is more notable and more critical is his ability to successfully transfer to his students what he knows. In terms of scheduling and pricing, working with Jonathan is a pleasure. He is a true bargain relative to his skill and experience, which enabled me to work with him for 90 minutes to 2 hours at a time, usually twice a week. Other tutors I considered charged at least double, and the fact that Jonathan was more affordable enabled me to focus on doing the work versus worrying about the cost. Jonathan never wasted a minute of my time and never pressured me into scheduling a session. If he anything, he strives to accomplish more in less time. Finally, Jonathan cares about his students. It’s evident from day one that he enjoys being an educator and truly cares about his students’ successes. This helps create an environment conducive to learning, and is especially appreciated when the stress of the exam starts to set in. Ultimately, I scored above the high range of what my top school choice wants in terms of GRE scores, and before I started with Jonathan, I was below it. If you are considering scheduling an appointment, do not hesitate!

Easy to Follow

Jonathan talks in an even and easy to follow manner, which makes following along easy. Highly knowledgeable when it comes to the English language and how that translates to the Verbal section of the GMAT.

Spencer, 10 lessons with Jonathan

Knowledgeable and experienced tutor

Jonathan is an effective tutor because he has the necessary skills set of a teacher. In the first few lessons, he tries to determine the student’s level, strengths and weaknesses. This is helpful because he is able to tailor as to what the student needs are in order to achieve his or her goals

Great tutor

Jonathan is very familiar with standardized tests, and explained the methodology of the GRE to me and how best to take the test. Then we went over practice problems, while he guided me through the problems and explained how to best solve them. I look forward to working with Jonathan further!

Exceptional Tutor!

I have worked with three different tutors on Wyzant for the GRE and Jonathan is by far my favorite. He is very familiar with the content, and follows empirically methods. He is particularly skilled at breaking down tasks into bit size chunks and providing homework that is specific to your needs. He also allowed me to work through the problems on my own without just telling me the answer. I would highly recommend Jonathan for anyone preparing for the GRE!
