About Jonathan

I was a history major at the University at Albany now headed to grad school for Higher Education and Policy. I was never the greatest student growing up but I always ran to people who worked tirelessly to help me excel and now I want to do the same thing. I just enjoy teaching and helping people learn new things not only in a text book but even learn about themselves through the material taught.

So far I have had experiences tutoring residents as a Resident Assistant on the dorms. Either teaching what I know, editing and correcting other peoples work or helping individuals with thinking skills before exams. Recently I just came back from a service trip in Haiti teaching international students how to speak and read in the best English I know. Learning a new language can be hard I know but it is also rewarding.

I majored as a history major in college and received a 3.20 overall GPA for my major. Also I love history and if I do not know the answer I definitely know some one that would. In terms of English I have been very proficient in essay writing and idea development through out college. Like everyone I do have my road blocks but some of my best ideas came from brain storming with friends when I had nothing to work with.

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.

Public Speaking

I feel confident that I am qualified to tutor Public Speaking. I have worked in many jobs that have required to me to take public speaking classes as well as practice this craft. I worked with Student Government as a senator for the student body. I have also worked with an assemblyman from my state, and he required that I schedule and host meetings on his behalf, giving me the opportunity to speak to big groups of people for the first and last time. I was also an Resident Assistant (RA) which required me to speak to the Residents of the living quarters on a small and grand scale.
