About Jon

I am a chemical engineer by profession and education. The last ten years of my career were as the president of a chemical corporation. I retired early and became involved in education. I have taught four plus years of all levels of high school mathematics-Algebra I and II, Geometry, Mathematical Functions, Precalculus, and Calculus. Now that I no longer teach, I have become involved in tutoring. My schedule is quite flexible.

Mathematics has been a joy and passion of mine. I could also call it a hobby. It was an essential part of my career and I have tried to impart to students the importance of mathematics in their future. Tutoring to me is fun. My reward is seeing a student having that "Aha!" moment when they grasp a concept. Some of my students disliked mathematics and now enjoy it. I hope to inspire more students in the joy of mathematics.

I graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. My wife is also a graduate of the same university. We have two grown sons. We are members of Immaculate Conception Church. My hobbies include fly fishing, running, golf, astronomy, and of course mathematics. Kind of geeky, but I collect rare old mathematics books.

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 2

I have taught 4 plus years of Algebra 2 in public and private high schools. Plus I have tutored for the past year.

Great tutor. Highly recommend! — Jon was great from the start. He is flexible and a very patient instructor. My daughter was in a class where she did not understand the teaching method of the teacher. Jon was able to help her improve her grade and be more confident in Math. Highly recommend Jon. ...
