Bio

Hello my name is Jon and I am an experienced personal tutor and classroom teacher. I have worked three years as a Kumon teacher for children ages 5-18 in both English and mathematics, while tutoring privately on the side.

Hello my name is Jon and I am an experienced personal tutor and classroom teacher. I have worked three years as a Kumon teacher for children ages 5-18 in both English and mathematics, while tutoring privately on the side. I am qualified to tutor in GRE testing as well as SAT prep in all areas. I have also taught full classrooms in the art of debate, as well as Latin. As the eldest brother of three in my family, in many ways I have been teaching my entire life. This combined wealth of experience has given me a wide range of teaching styles! It is through the practice of teaching another that we verify our own understanding of the material. If you cannot easily explain something, do you truly understand it?

I believe that there are many ways to understand material. Public schooling typically has a narrow, unilateral way of teaching; if the only tool you have is a hammer, then every problem has to be a nail. My specialty as a tutor/teacher is my ability to show students differing methods of solving problems so that they may realize their own unique way of learning, which will allow them to critically think on their own and eventually teach themselves. I believe this is a crucial skill to obtain in life.

I expect a lot from myself and from my students. As such, I will often ask for feedback and will not bill for a lesson unless you are satisfied.

I generally tutor out of the Charles E. Miller Library on Frederick Road, but am available to travel to different locations if it is more suitable.

Looking forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your life!

Music

Guitar

Guitar

I have 15 years of experience playing guitar, both acoustic and electric. I have a reasonable understanding of guitar theory, but I believe music is about your ears so I play and teach through an attention to the actual sound being emitted from the instrument.

Poker

Poker

I have played poker successfully for 10+ years. I have read numerous books on the subject (Super/System, Every Hand Revealed, Mike Caro's book of tells), watched hundreds of hours of professional players, and have thousands of hours of logged personal experience. I understand poker for what it is - a microcosm of life that incorporates many different skills. I have a deep love for this game.

Patient and thorough.

Takes time to assess the need at hand. Very good at communication of where my son is and needs to go. Wish I could have him see my son three times a week! Very up to date and current in his knowledge for what is being taught in school.
