About Jon


Bio

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 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.
