About Jon

I've been a professional teacher in Charleston for over 10 years. During this time, I've had the opportunity to work with local elementary, high school and college students, as well as adults. While tutoring, my approach is as a facilitator of student learning, providing a wide range of learning activities in a supportive environment. The student's progress is always the goal with one on one instruction for personal attention to needs assessment. Beyond the lesson, it's important to develop learning skills that will contribute to future success in the classroom. I'm currently teaching and tutoring adults in grammar, writing, reading, and mentoring a Spanish major at the College of Charleston in the language school.

In addition to my ESL career, I am the Director of Service Learning Study Abroad trips for high school students in New Zealand and Fiji. For the past nine years I have been leading international service learning and adventure travel programs for college and high school students, including work with language diversity training, acculturation issues and responsible travel.

I have also taught with the English for Life school as a training instructor for future ESL teachers focusing on cultural issues and grammar.
