About Jonathan

I'm really excited to tutor this summer! This is my first time working with a professional tutoring business, and I am really looking forward to working with students on improving their academic skills and testing success. I just graduated from High School last month in the Top 5%, as a part of the National, Spanish, French, and Math Honor Societies. At my high school, I tutored daily in the school's Foreign Language (Spanish and French) and Math Resources my Junior and Senior year, so I have two years of direct experience tutoring with these subjects under my belt!

When I tutor, I ultimately rely on the student to find the answers, guiding them along the way by working with them to realize and use that which they already know and offering insight in order to help them take their knowledge one step further. I believe that this method, as opposed to just giving answers away to a homework assignment or test, inspires self-confidence in the student towards the subject by helping them to link the progress they've already made to additional progress that they are more than capable of attaining.

I've tutored in the Math Resource at my high school for two years, and I am extremely proficient in math, having gotten 36 on ACT Math, 800 on SAT Math, and 800 on the SAT Math II Subject Exam. In addition, I achieved straight A's in advanced and AP level math throughout high school.

I've tutored Spanish in the Foreign Language Resource for two years, and I am extremely proficient in Spanish, having studied it for 5 years. I achieved 730 on the SAT Spanish Subject Exam, and I received the Outstanding Spanish Learner award at the end of my senior year as awarded collectively by the Spanish Department at my high school. I have a personal passion for language especially, intending to begin majoring in Linguistics and perhaps minoring in Spanish at Georgetown next year.

I received very strict grammar training in middle school, and as a result, I believe that I am very proficient in grammar. Grammar is typically one of the strong suits of my writing in class as I've become quite experienced at analyzing the functions of individual words and phrases within a sentence so as to write or speak coherently and professionally.

I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, but I am more than happy to schedule make-up sessions. Ultimately, since it is summer vacation, I will typically be pretty flexible.

My tutor space of choice is a public library, as it is a quiet, concentrated environment that I think is perfect for studying, but I am certainly not opposed to utilizing other locations if it is more convenient for the student.

I look forward to speaking with you and helping you to increase your ability and confidence in these subjects!
