About Jonathan

Hello Everybody,

My name is Jonathan, and I may be the ideal tutor for you!

I recently graduated from the University of New Mexico with a bachelor's degree in English. I have done private tutoring before, but this is my first time as a WyzAnt tutor. In addition to tutoring, I work full-time as a Manager in Training for RadioShack.

In general, I favor a "hands-on" approach to teaching that involves a lot of interaction between the tutor and student. However, my specific methods vary according to the subject being taught and the learning style of the student.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I have acquired a Bachelor's degree in English from the University of New Mexico with Magna Cum Laude honors. English is my passion. I have always excelled at English and have tutored many classmates in middle school and high school.

Grammar

I have a Bachelor's Degree in English achieved through the University of New Mexico. Grammar is a very critical portion of the English language, and therefore, a critical element of the English major. I had to write many academic papers in my college career and good grammar was essential to executing a well written paper that adequately expresses ideas and support of those ideas.

Literature

Another key element of attaining an English degree is reading and analyzing literature. I have studied literature from various time periods in United States history and British history. I am very keen on the Gothic era in both the United States and Britain. I have analyzed in immense detail some of the greatest works of classic literature such as "The Scarlet Letter" by Nathaniel Hawthorne, "Moby Dick" by Herman Melville, and many works by Edgar Allan Poe.

Proofreading

The ability to write a well written research or analytical paper hinges on the ability to proofread. In many first drafts, errors are abundant. Good proofreading skills are required to catch those errors and fix them. I have excelled in proofreading abilities and have continued to grow in those abilities through the years through the vast amount of papers I wrote in my college career.

Reading

When it comes to the English language, being able to read it is of vital importance. I have read my classic literature books in my career such as Moby Dick, A Tale of Two Cities, The Scarlet Letter, and many more. Furthermore, I have chosen to enter into a Master's degree that requires excellent reading skills in order to obtain the degree. In addition, according to my middle school English teacher, I excelled at reading, and therefore, she had me reading on a higher grade level. My approach to reading is to find out the core of what the problem is and go from there. I have encountered that for most it is being able to understand what is being presented in the text which includes being able to understand the words used.

Vocabulary

Conveying one's thoughts and ideas either orally or through writing requires good vocabulary skills. My vocabulary skills increased in my college career and continue to increase on a daily basis. In my senior year of high school, we had a new vocabulary list per week. A vast array of words made those lists. As I entered college, my vocabulary skills increased, and I was able to write some very good research and analytic papers as a result.

Writing

Easily the largest element of an English major is the ability to write a well thought out paper. Being able to express one's thoughts and ideas on a particular work of literature or topic of discussion is vital. In every class I took in my college career, at least one research or analytical paper was required.
