About Jonathan

I graduated from Yale with highest honors and earned a master's degree from the leading teaching apprenticeship program in the United States. I have now been tutoring for 25 years.

In both my teaching and tutoring I specialize in nonfiction writing. For most of my tutoring, I coach high-school seniors as they develop and then hone their college application essays. I tutor primarily online; it works well and offers several benefits.

I am also a Sutton Trust / Fulbright Commission Mentor for underprivileged college applicants, primarily assisting them online. Earlier in my career I taught a course on the personal essay for several summers, for The Johns Hopkins University's Center for Talented Youth.

A veteran classroom teacher, I began in the middle grades (5-9) and twelve years ago moved into teaching high-school history, including AP United States History, AP US Government and Politics, and AP European History. I am a seasoned debate coach with a highly successful squad, and I have also served as instructor for semester-long online courses for teachers with the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

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 have been a speech and debate coach for eight years and currently serve as my league's Chair. I have been teaching speech and debate as a formal subject for five years at my current school. This year I earned the Degree of Special Distinction from the National Speech and Debate Association for my accomplishments.

Social Studies

Over the past 12 years, I have been teaching high school social studies full time. I taught first at a Quaker school in the US, then for the past nine years an international school. During that time I have taught a variety of courses, including United States history, Western Civilization (1400 to present), World history. Earlier, while teaching middle school, most of my work was in social studies. My apprenticeship was also mostly in social studies. Lastly: My undergraduate degree was chiefly in the social studies arena, with psychology, archaeology, anthropology, and history.
