About Jonathan

I have been a teacher for over 10 years. My primary subject is Social Studies for 7th and 8th grade. I also have experience teaching math and reading during summer school. I have worked with students from grades Pre-K through 8th grade in my time as a teacher. I have worked with gifted students and struggling learners. As a classroom teacher, I work with students of different skill levels and interests. I always set a goal of helping students enjoy the lesson, challenge themselves and feel good about their progress.

I have lead after school tutoring programs in the past to help students who struggle with homework and standardized tests. I start by helping students list goals that they would like to achieve from tutoring. I feel that it is important for students, even at young ages, to have a specific goal when they begin school work. I also work with parents to provide feedback and to understand the goals that they have for their children.

I have been a summer school reading teacher for 9 years. I work with students who struggle with reading and provide strategies to help improve ability as well as increase interest.

I have been a Junior High Social Studies teacher for 10 years. I received a Bachelors Degree in History before going into teaching. I work with students to improve their ability at reading informational text and to increase interest in History and other Social Studies subjects.

I am a teacher and a parent. I realize how important it is to see students see students succeed in school. I also believe that it is important for children to have a love for learning. I work with students to make sure that they both understand the work, enjoy the process and feel good about every success!
