About Jonathan

I am currently a PhD student in the English department at The Ohio State University, and my MA in English from Ohio University concentrated on Rhetoric and Composition as well as Literary History. I've been teaching college composition courses for the last 4 years, and I was a writing tutor for 2 years before that, so I have extensive experience assisting students with college-level reading and writing. I have taught 1st and 2nd year composition courses, and as a teacher and tutor, I've worked with ESL students and freshmen who were struggling with college writing. My graduate work focuses on Shakespeare, so I am also well qualified to offer professional assistance regarding reading as well as literary research and analysis. As an undergraduate and graduate student, I have been nominated for numerous awards for both writing and teaching. Additionally, I have a passion for proofreading and grammatical accuracy.

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.

ACT English

I am a professionally trained test prep teacher who specializes in the English and Reading tests. My methods focus on test-taking strategies as well as on the grammar rules that are the focus of the ACT English test. I use a variety of test prep materials in order to help students improve their scores and better understand the content of the questions.

ACT Reading

I am a professionally trained test prep teacher who specializes in the English and Reading tests. For the Reading test, I like to focus on test-taking strategies and reading comprehension. I help students identify the kinds of questions that they struggle with, and then we work on improving test scores by more effectively dealing with those kinds of questions. I am also a trained literary scholar, which helps me work with students who struggle with reading comprehension.

Literature

My MA is in literary history, and I'm currently working on a PhD in Renaissance literature. I specialize in Shakespeare and poetry, so I'm happy to help students work through even the most difficult literary texts. I can assist with both comprehension and analysis, and I enjoy helping students become interested in a text that they've been struggling to understand or appreciate.

Proofreading

As an undergraduate, one of my research assistantships involved working as an editorial assistant on a collection of scholarly articles. The college-level writing courses that I teach always involve helping students learn how to effectively revise and proofread their own work. I also possess a number of entertaining books that I've found very helpful in teaching better proofreading skills and habits.

Writing

I was a tutor at a university writing center for 2 years, and I've been teaching college-level writing courses for the last 4 years. I am knowledgeable about composition theory and familiar with various citation styles. I've also studied multi-modal composition, which means that I can help with assignments that require the creation of websites or other visually dynamic content.
