About Jon

I have earned a B.A. degree is in Geography, and I love to share my enthusiasm about the subject. Geography is both an art and a science and is much more than memorizing state capitols. It is understanding how physical features and people interact with each other and create a whole. Let me help you succeed in this fascinating subject. I can tailor lessons to any grade or experience level.

I am also certified in Geographic Information Systems and have working experience with it. In addition, I have a lifelong love of history and have read and studied it extensively, especially the Greek and Roman eras.

My goal in tutoring is to help students gain an understanding of the fundamentals of geography and history in addition to the basic facts. This will allow them to continue their education with a solid foundation to build on later. I want to keep students engaged and challenged with homework without overwhelming them, and believe that prompt feedback from myself is essential. Please don't hesitate to contact me and let's achieve success together.

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 have been reading about American History since I started reading and have taken many classes on the subject. I have a particular interest in American Military History. I would tutor by focusing on how America developed from era to era.

European History

My reading and studying on European history would allow me to tutor it. I would focus on the major figures of each era and show how they both shaped it and were shaped by it. I would show how the parts were linked.

Geography

I have a BA in Geography from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and also have a professional certification in Geographic Information Systems. I have read and studied the subject extensively and have completed several projects in Human Geography. I have written on it as well and submitted a paper to a meeting of the American Association of Geographers.

Vocabulary

I have been a voracious reader since I was little and have a wide vocabulary. As a tutor I would stress synonyms and word origins. I would also help students learn to pick the best word for each circumstance.

World History

Studying the history of the world has always been a passion of mine and I have read extensively on it. I would show how the world has been connected throughout history and how changes in one part of it can affect places far away. I would emphasize the broad themes of humanity's progression to the present.
