About Jonathan

I am a former classroom teacher with practical experience at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. My specialties include writing, editing, English, and literature. In addition to teaching in the formal classroom setting, I have worked as an environmental educator and wildlife presenter. I am a member of National Tutoring Association and a certified tutor.

Outside of the classroom, my professional experience includes managing the Newspaper in Education Department at the New York Daily News, reporting for Worrall Communications, and writing and editing in both business and university settings. For the past six years I have worked as a writer and student advisor in the medical school field, writing documents for medical students who are approaching residency. These documents, referred to as Medical Student Performance Evaluations, are narrative summaries of students' lives prior to and during medical school. The MSPE is an important tool in helping program directors decide which students to interview.

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.

English

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, with a minor in Art, from Drew University. I studied Chaucer and British Romantic Poetry at Lehigh University, and British theater and literature at the Polytechnic of Central London, in London, England. I have taught language arts, as well as literature and poetry from Old English to 1800 at the high school and middle school levels.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, with a minor in Art, from Drew University. I studied Chaucer, British Romantic Poetry, and American Literature at Lehigh University. I also studied British theater and literature at the Polytechnic of Central London, in London, England. I have taught literature and poetry from Old English to 1800 at the high school and middle school levels.

Proofreading

I was the manager of the Newspaper in Education Department at the New York Daily News from 2003-2008. In that capacity, I was responsible for proofing, editing, and fact-checking daily educational pages. I also proofread supplemental materials, answer keys, and teachers' guides. As a writer, I continually proofread and edit material for review and approval prior to submission.

Writing

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. I am a former newspaper reporter, and have spent the past six years working as a medical school writer, composing biographies and developing narratives to help students obtain residencies. In addition, I assist students with their personal statements, guiding them through the writing process, helping them craft individualized and highly effective documents.
