I am a qualified tutor, in Charlotte, NC, for Reading, English, Writing, Comprehension and Grammar, Social Studies and Spanish. I can assist K-12 students and adults in these subject areas. I am registered with a number of tutoring services in Charlotte and international services. I have been tutoring for more than 25 years and love to help students achieve their goals and realize their full potential. I customize learning plans to each of my students, working closely with the pupil and his parents to make sure we're working on what's needed to help the child succeed. I believe in simplicity, and keep learning plans and lessons simple, and basic. Let's solve the problems first, but have fun doing it.

I was a professional buyer for many years and learned that personal relationships are the key to everything. That's how we learn, grow and succeed. We never stop learning.

I love to read and enjoy involving my students in the joys of learning and expanding their horizons. No matter what their path, every student needs to read, and read well. Basic skills such as comprehension, grammar and spelling must be kept up in order to compete today. A sense and appreciation of history is important. Reading and comprehension are vital tools which we all need throughout our lives. The process of learning any subject should be fun. Seeing that "spark" of understanding in my students' eyes makes it all worthwhile. Every child has great abilities, and I can unlock those abilities.

I am a qualified, registered tutor with the CoolKidsLearn Federal SES after-school program through CMS, PlusPlusTutoring, Mastery Tutors, In Goode Company in Charlotte, ProTutor, NextGuru, Acadam, CarolinaTutors and Language Trainers.

I am proud of what I do and want to share my enthusiasm with all students.

Knowledgeable and thought provoking tutor

Jon is the tutor to have for your son or daughter. He helps your student use the knowledge they have and helps build their confidence to overcome their weakness. I know he is going to continue to help my son build his confidence with writing and strengthen his knowledge of English to excel on his AP exam and the SAT. So glad we contacted Jon.
