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.

I have over 15 years' experience working with students on the knowledge and tactics they need to achieve the best possible score on the SAT Math section. I formerly worked as an instructor for the Kaplan Center in Pittsburgh, PA and the Andover Chinese School in Andover, MA.

Helpful and Patient

Jonathan was helpful and patient and showed my son some new techniques for solving problems. Jonathan also did a good job of assessing his areas of weakness or challenge, which his high school teacher had not been able to communicate with us.
