About Jonathan

I am extremely interested in tutoring you or your child. In 2012, I received my Master’s degree from West Chester University of Pennsylvania in TESOL. For my practicum course, I volunteered at the Northeast Regional Library of Philadelphia to help teach an English and citizenship class. We held practice conversations with the students and helped them become more comfortable speaking English. It was a multilevel classroom, so I had to use different methods of communication with the students.
After I graduated from West Chester University, I traveled to China in order to teach English. The first school I worked at was Golden Apple Kindergarten. At that school I had three classes daily and had to make weekly lesson plans for the classes. While I was in the class, I was considered the head teacher and had to instruct the Chinese teachers. This was very difficult as their English level varied and some of the teachers were quite a lot older than me. This forced me to further develop my communication skills so that the daily lesson plans that I designed could be properly implemented. While working at this school I became proficient in the use of smart board technology.
Recently, I worked as a teacher at an adult conversational school while tutoring high school students a few nights a week. While all of the students I taught were Chinese, it was still challenging to create beneficial and productive communication with people from multiple backgrounds. Guiding conversations between housewives, businessmen, and teenagers can be rewarding, but only when it is properly channeled. That is why lesson planning is so important; I was given a topic and vocabulary, but by choosing effective tools and questions, I made the class enjoyable and productive.
I hope to bring my skills and professionalism to you, becoming an asset to your academic development.
