About Jon

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 many 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.

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.

American History

I'm a lifelong history student. I majored in History in college and have been a Social Studies tutor for over 20 years. History is endlessly fascinating and being student of History can help with other subjects.


I have many years of tutoring students and adults with English and ESL training. Besides reading well, everyone should write and speak well. I can help you. Please contact me. Thank you.


Tutoring students and adults in English as a Second language is an integral part of my experience and knowledge of English and allied disciplines. I have been successfully tutoring for over 15 years with adults and students in English, Reading and Writing. All of my adult students needed help with comprehension, vocabulary and pronunciation of American English. Whether for business or personal reasons I have been successful with these adults and can submit solid references from all of them to attest to my skills.


As an integral part of my tutoring skills and experience in English and Reading Literature is very important. Learning English through the writings of the world's great authors, both historic and contemporary, is a wonderful way to understand English and enjoy the books we all know so well. Naturally as students go to higher grades and college reading these works is a must-have.

Public Speaking

As a professional actor for many years, as well as being a tutor, I have had many experiences speaking to audiences and performing in public. Helping students to gain self-confidence, overcome speaking difficulties, and learn how to memorize speeches are all part of my experience and knowledge. I can assist students and adults in this challenging but satisfying area of learning.


Learning how to read is by far the most important component of anyone's education. Learning how to read correctly will help with all other educational disciplines, especially writing. I have been tutoring students and adults to improve their reading skills and helping them to enjoy all their reading, whether it's required or for pleasure.

SAT Reading

With more than 10 years of tutoring experience in English, Reading and Writing, I have helped many students prepare to pass the SAT Reading test. Not only to help the student with that specific exam but to improve their overall skill levels in Reading and Writing. To help them gain more self-confidence as they prepare for college.

SAT Writing

As with my regular subjects of Reading, English, Writing and related disciplines, I can give guidance and improve test scores for the SAT test. My experience will help all students make better grades and greatly improve their confidence levels for the SAT and other important tests.

Study Skills

I have been successfully tutoring Elementary school students in many subjects for over ten years; specifically, English, reading, grammar, comprehension and spelling, as well as Math and study skills. My main focus is one-on-one tutoring with an emphasis on improving and bolstering the student's self-confidence and realization that they can learn as well as any other student. The joys of reading and learning are the epitome of my methods.


I have been an actor for over 50 years. Theatre, television, movies and commercials, plus acting coach for students and adults. I can provide basic as well as advanced skills for acting, presentation and public speaking.


An integral part of tutoring English to all students is the ability to write well and express your ideas. I teach my students to improve their reading skills, comprehension, grammar and vocabulary. Without good writing as a component of this education you may miss opportunities.
