About Jonathan

I have been a tutor and adjunct instructor at several local colleges for 10 years. I teach and tutor in the areas of chemistry, math, and physics. I hold an emergency teaching certification and am a substitute teacher in the Central Bucks School District.

I have taught classes in General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry Lab, Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Statistics, and Physics at local colleges. I have a love of learning and desire to understand the world through math and science. I keep up to date with many of the latest scientific discoveries. I earned a Ph. D. in Organic Chemistry and have a background in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries were is was involved in the discovery of new therapeutic medicines.

I enjoy helping students understand concepts in math and science. I then apply these concepts in a detailed and stepwise approach to solving specific problems. I enjoy pointing out how current scientific discoveries or currently used technologies apply directly to the material at hand.

I am available from 9 am until 8 pm. I am happy to meet students at one of the Bucks County Public Libraries or at a Starbucks. It is most efficient for students to have specific problems to go over for subject tutoring, along with the textbook being used. SAT and ACT math students should have review book. I have standard texts and can supply problems as well, with advanced notice.
