About Jonathan

My name is Jonathan H. I have been an educator for 7 years across 3 different continents! I teach a rainbow of different subjects, including all the Math levels up to Calc II as well as Chemistry, Biology, and intro to Physics, as well as History and Economics. I have worked at private schools, public schools, and have spent time in China and South Korea teaching at wonderful international schools there.

As far as tutoring style, I always make sure that we progress as the right pace, and that a good foundation is built before moving on to the next topic. Learning Math and learn a foreign language are not all that different; both requires a lot of repetition and a lot of patience, so lessons should be interesting and never go too fast. I was born with a talent for foreign languages and a penchant for numbers, but I'm also clear on why it is I pick them up so fast and how other people can use those same techniques to help themselves. Some people prefer lots of interaction, while others prefer to learn as much grammar as possible. I try to blend different techniques and personalize them for those I teach.

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.

Algebra 1

I have been a Math teacher for 5 years, and I've helped many students master Algebra I, gaining solid fundamentals they will need for the rest of their math careers. Algebra is all about being able to see and understand patterns, and I help children understand the general concepts with easy to understand metaphors.

Chinese

I can help with Mandarin Chinese both and spoken and written. I majored in it for 4 years in college and hold a B.A. in Asian studies.

French

I have taken French since kindergarten, and I have translated French professionally as a freelancer.

Japanese

I have a Master's in Japanese studies, and have been taking Japanese for 5 years.
