About Jonathan

As an experienced professional with almost four decades of teaching experience, I believe the most important thing a teacher or tutor can do is listen to students to better understand their needs. It's also important to help students understand their own goals and how to achieve them. Following these two principles really requires that the teacher also put him or herself in the student's place. Tutors should at first carefully interview students as potential clients, if you will, whose needs may not be fully understood, even by the student. I look forward to working with you.

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.

Music History

An avid amateur musician and music historian, I studied music theory, composition and history while at Oberlin College. I've played piano, trombone, baritone, acoustic guitar, string bass, and now, for more than 30 years, the french horn.

Public Speaking

I have a degree from the School of Speech at Northwestern University, have taught speech classes and forensics (debate), and have written speeches professionally.
