About Jonathan

I hold a Ph.D. in Political Science and an M.A. in International Affairs, both from the University of Pittsburgh, and a B.A. in East Asian Studies from the College of William and Mary. I have over fifteen years of teaching experience, in the United States, Mainland China, and Hong Kong. I formerly served as Director of Program Planning for the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh and as an Adjunct Professor of Political Science for the University of Pittsburgh, teaching courses on the American Political Process, Chinese Government and Politics and Chinese Foreign Policy.

I am an experienced language (Mandarin Chinese, ESL) and test-preparation (SAT, PSAT, GRE, TOEFL) tutor. I am fluent in both spoken and written Mandarin and Cantonese, with over eight years’ experience living and working in the People’s Republic of China.

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.

SAT Math

I have over ten years' experience working with students on the specific knowledge and tactics they will need to achieve their best possible score on the SAT Math section. I formerly worked as an instructor for the Kaplan Center in Pittsburgh, PA and am currently teaching SAT and SSAT classes at a school in Andover, MA.
