My name is Jonathan, and I'm a professor at Nebraska Wesleyan University. I've been a professor for nearly three years while also tutoring a variety of students in varying subjects and age groups. I have experience teaching and tutoring adults, middle and high school students, as well as individual tutoring experience with elementary school children through volunteer opportunities.

I love reading and writing, but my true passion is working with students. I want students to learn, not simply be instructed. I work hard to create an energetic, fun, and effective learning environment that caters to a given student's wants, needs, and goals. I believe in making the work we do together interesting and inventive, and I push my students to be their best. I hold myself to high standards, and I believe great students that are willing and excited to learn are everywhere.

Highly Recommend!

Jonathan responded to my emails right away and helped me write a philosophy essay. He came prepared and was extremely helpful. Moreover, he's an amazing writer and explained the subject very clearly. I would highly recommend hiring Jonathan for help in philosophy and even just writing in general. Great guy, effective tutor!
