About Jonathan

I'm new to WyzAnt but have been tutoring informally since childhood.

My experience is that good grades and test scores can flow naturally from a positive relationship to learning. I help empower learners to be confident and poised.

I tutor in a range of subjects and am equally comfortable in math and English (reading, writing and literature). I am not specifically trained in test prep but as a successful tester (1540 SAT score), I believe I can help any student improve their performance through increased confidence as well as mastery of the material.

I work with students aged 8 and up. I can travel to the student's home, or we can meet in a library, coffeeshop or other public venue.

I am always happy to teach chess, and am also available for specialized instruction in the following subjects: traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, the I Ching, and Nepali language.

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have, or to discuss compatibility.

Note: my cancellation policy is 24 hours.
Thanks!

More background: I grew up in the city with professors for parents (and grandparents--teaching seems to be in my DNA). I attended Riverdale Country School in the Bronx, then Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania (class of '06) where I majored in Religious Studies with a minor in Math. After college I took a break from academic life to pursue long-standing interests in food and health through working on farms and in restaurant kitchens. In 2008 I received a Fulbright fellowship to Nepal where I studied traditional South Asian medicine, then returned to the States to pursue a Master's in Oriental Medicine at National College of Natural Medicine, graduating in 2014. Since then I have moved back to New York and started my practice in the healing arts. As the business grows, I welcome opportunities to tutor and teach.

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.

Chess

I've been playing chess since age 5 or 6. I'm a casual player, not a tournament player (though I've played in one or two) but I have a solid grasp of openings, midgame & endgame strategy. More importantly, I love the game and love to teach. I'd be a good fit for anyone looking to learn the game or improve their beginning to intermediate level play.

Cooking

I've been cooking for most of my life, both at home and occasionally in restaurant kitchens and at events. I trained in the fundamentals of French Cuisine at La Cuisine Sans Peur in Manhattan, and have picked up South Asian culinary techniques while living in India and Nepal. I also have extensive training in Ayurvedic and Oriental Medicine, and am knowledgeable in applying those health philosophies in the kitchen. I love to cook and to share what I love.
