I graduated with an undergraduate degree from George Mason University and a graduate degree from Georgetown University.

History, government and politics, and political science are all a passion of mine, and I have significant experience in these areas through education and professional experience. I have experience working at the White House, Congress, and multiple Federal Executive Branch Departments. I have worked for a Governor, and I have experience working for campaigns at the national, state, and local level.

I believe that history and government are vital to our education system, and they help promote a more fundamental understanding of our country and our world. It brings me joy to teach others about history and government, and I have a tremendous passion for making these subjects fun and interesting. I think it’s important to tailor tutoring sessions to the student so that they get excited about the subject and enhance their independent learning skills in these subject areas.

Feel free to reach out for any clarifications or questions. I look forward to getting the chance to tutor you and help you in any of the subjects listed. My schedule is very flexible, and I will do whatever I can to meet your scheduling needs!

Extremely Knowledgeable and Helpful

Jonathan was phenomenal! He had an incredibly well-versed understanding of World History, both across the broad picture and specifics. Our session was super efficient and fun! I'm looking forward to more meetings in preparation for the 2021 AP World test. Jonathan was immensely helpful in preparing me for AP US History, AP US Government, and AP Comparative Government. Whatever the topic, he was prepared to break it down and explain it without discarding its nuances. I gained a richer understanding of politics and history with him!

Jonathon was very responsive and is tutoring both of my children. He is nice, patient and my kids love him. He has always been on time for our sessions and he knows what he is doing. My son said, he felt like he actually understood his schoolwork. And my daughter is looking forward to the lessons. I will definitely continue working with Jonathon!
