About Jonathan

Wouldn't if be nice to have your teacher come to your house after school and sit across from you in your kitchen table making sure that you "get it?" Because, let's face it, a lot of the time the videos on the web are just a little too hard to understand.

Hi, my name is Jonathan. I have been a certified teacher for over 10 years now and have been tutoring privately for 13 years. I hold two bachelor's degrees as well as a master's degree in quality educational strategies. I have taught here in Michigan as well as in Florida, England, and Mexico. I have taught every grade level from second grade up through university level, primarily focusing on math (specializing in algebra/algebra II and geometry), science (biology, chemistry, and astronomy), Spanish, ESOL (with TOEFL test preparation), and English/language arts. As a seasoned teacher, I understand the challenges that students face when confronted with a subject, and it is my job to make sure that all students succeed. Together, we will create a personalized educational plan with goals and timelines to ensure that you are successful. I will be in contact with your teacher to track your progress as well as prepare for upcoming assignments and exams.

If you are looking for a bilingual, multicultural veteran teacher, with a proven track record of student growth and achievement, then I am the tutor for you. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in help with Spanish, mathematics, science, English/language arts, ESOL, and TOFEL.

Great tutor

Jonathan is a great tutor. My son really enjoys his tutoring sessions. At first, he really didn't like Spanish until we found Jonathan. Thank you so much.
