About Jonathan

I'm an adventurous, easygoing person who loves to teach and has superlative communication skills. This past July I passed the New York State Bar Exam after graduating from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law with a concentration in Intellectual Property. Currently, I work part-time doing family and criminal law. In college, I gained valuable tutoring experience by volunteering to help my peers in a variety of subjects including Statistics, English Composition and Public Speaking (Communications).

I love helping students achieve their potential, and doing it in my own unique way. I have always detested stale lectures (who doesn't) and pride myself on my ability to make any subject matter interesting, and--more importantly--fun. I firmly believe students learn better in less stressful environments, and schools provide enough pressure as it is. With that in mind, I strive to make my students feel as relaxed as possible during lessons, and begin each session with five minutes of "free-talk," where a student can unwind after a school day and achieve the right mindset for instruction. I'm an amiable person who gets along with every type of personality and loves seeing students improve.

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.

Public Speaking

I tutored a number of students in Communications courses while in college. The classes revolved around writing and orally presenting five 5-minute speeches in a variety of voices (i.e. persuasive, demonstrative, etc.). All of my lessons went exceedingly well, and every student received high marks. Further, I have tutored law students in giving oral presentations to a panel of mock trial judges.
