About Jonathan

If you want to learn the basics of good writing, or understand how to make good writing even better, I can help. If you want your essays, reports, and articles to achieve excellence every time you write, I can help with that, too. If there's a short story or novel you've always wanted to bring into the world, I can get you started.

If reading short stories and novels is difficult, if poetry, history, or philosophy is a struggle to untangle, if you find essays, reports, or articles hard to engage with, we'll work to make sure understanding and remembering them is never a problem again.

When we work together, I'm bringing with me 26 years of professional experience as a writer and instructor. I'm a published author and have had essays, reviews, profiles, stories, and features appear in the Boston Phoenix, the New York Times, New York Newsday, Martha Stewart Living, Vice, Sleeping Fish, the Milan Review, and other publications. I've taught writing at Sarah Lawrence College, Western Michigan University, Pratt Institute, and SUNY Ulster.

If you're ready to develop and transform into the best writer or reader you can possibly be, let's get started. Send me an email and we'll figure out a plan for your success.

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 was an instructor for over a dozen speech communications classes at community colleges in both New York City and upstate New York. As an instructor in a wide range of different subjects, I needed to be able to call on an almost innumerable stock of public speaking techniques to hold student interest and get my point across. Familiarity with the methods and texts used in speech classes, as well as years of experience putting them into practice, would make me a qualified tutor in this area.
