About Jonathon

Every student is different. After my many years in high school and college, this is something I found to be true. There are students who are gifted and those who must fight for every A that they get. I have had friends who fall into both categories. I have helped both kinds of students to understand better and both kinds of students have helped me. Learning how to help other people understand has always seemed to be a gift I have had since high school. I enjoy knowing how other people think and how to present information in a way that would make sense to them. Like I said, there are two types of students. They both may learn to absorb information in different ways, but there is one thing that every student can benefit from. A good teacher.

In college, I majored in Computer Science and Engineering. Sounds fancy right? It is not. I simply took a lot of math classes and a lot of Computer Science classes. I can help with most any math class, and I am able to help with most of the lower level Computer Science classes. I am very comfortable with the Algebra and Calculus classes in math. I am very comfortable with C/C++ and Java in Computer Science. I hope that I can help you with any class you are having difficulty with and help you to enjoy learning. I know it is not always fun, but it doesn't have to be painful.

When I help students, I try to make sure I understand why they are struggling with a certain subject. It does not help the student to be able to copy a method to solve a problem. Instead, they need to understand the meaning behind the explanation. I also want to make sure the student is motivated to learn. There are many bright minds who simply have no motivation to complete work that they do not think will benefit them later in life. There is always a way to find the drive to complete the work and to do their best, sometimes it just takes a little digging to find that reason to succeed.

Great Patience and Understanding

Jonathon was able to help my daughter with her calculus homework. He is extremely patient and very good with explaining the concepts. He makes sure the concepts are well understood before continuing. I would definitely use him again.
