Why I tutor

As long as I can remember, I've been helping students in school. I've spent much of my life as an academic coach -- from correcting my younger brother's algebra homework to editing college essays for high school students--because I enjoy it. Students ask me back because I bring enthusiasm, hard work, and personalized attention to each lesson.

Why I tutor

As long as I can remember, I've been helping students in school. I've spent much of my life as an academic coach -- from correcting my younger brother's algebra homework to editing college essays for high school students--because I enjoy it. Students ask me back because I bring enthusiasm, hard work, and personalized attention to each lesson.

What I teach

I specialize in coaching subjects at the high school and college levels, specifically Math (from Algebra I to Differential Equations) and English (from the basics all the way to AP English coaching/college essay coaching). I personalize each lesson, assign reasonable homework between sessions, and track progress every month.

I love teaching programming and specialize in C, C++, and R. I'm currently working as a software developer.

Math Tutoring

My strongest attribute as a math tutor is that I wasn't always particularly interested or good at math. In fact, what pushed me to pursue math in college and graduate school was having a high school teacher who took time out of her day to discover what I needed to succeed.

Similarly, I find for many of my students their struggle with mathematics isn't their discipline, ability, or desire to learn -- it's how they're being taught. I recognize that every student will have specific needs, that each lesson needs to be slightly altered, and that the approach to mathematical understanding will depend heavily on the student.

Customer Satisfaction

I appreciate the potentially huge impact that an academic coach can have on a student. As such, I value honest feedback and earnest input from my students and their parents. Never hesitate to communicate concerns or ask for specialized help.

Schedule & Availability

I am fairly flexible with my schedule but because I do my best to tailor lessons to each student, I prefer at least 12 hours of notice before a cancelled appointment.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Very personable and knowledgable

I have worked with Jonathan quite a few times, he is one of the most thoughtful tutors I have had. He is available on short notice and has helped me tremendously throughout my Data Structures classes.

Rose, 9 lessons with Jonathan

Amazing

I needed help to prep for a prob and stats final and Jonathan helped solve practice problems step by step. Highly recommend!

Ali, 1 lesson with Jonathan

Very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding tutor.

Among the things I like about Jonathan is his excellent use of time. He is also very knowledgeable, and communicates clearly. He has my full recommendation.

Stephen, 2 lessons with Jonathan

Extremely knowledgeable in C++ !

Jonathan is a super star and helped me understand a lot of concepts in which I was struggling in C++. His services are extremely valuable to me and I hope to work with him in the future as much as my wallet will allow me! Super nice, patient, and hard-working fellow. Thank you Sir! Very knowledgeable and better than any other tutor I've ever encountered.

Jonathan A First Lesson

Jonathan helped me provide ideas for my college essays, especially the Common App essay, by explaining all the prompts and having me reflect on key aspects of my life.

Easy...?

Jonathan has a way of making a terrible subject like stats seem less terrible. I am retaking stats and in only two sessions with him I learned more than I learned all semester. He almost makes it seem easy...

Adam, 28 lessons with Jonathan

Smart af

He was so knowledgeable about c++ worth every penny he has helped me so much through my experience as my tutor and had taught me so much my teacher didn’t teach me in a one on one environment. His services are invaluable.

Anton, 6 lessons with Jonathan

Knowledgeable and Patient tutor

Jonathan helped me with my statistics homework, specifically using "R" He was super helpful and organized. Jonathan made it very easy for me to learn by showing me first then letting me control his screen and doing the problem for myself. This really helped me understand what I needed to do on my own while having his guidance. overall a great experience and will defiantly be scheduling more sessions.

Quinn, 3 lessons with Jonathan

very patient and knowledgeable

Helped me understand an assignment for C++ and was very patient and took his time to answer my questions, had been struggling in data and algorithms for a while and he seems to really know what he is doing! great tutor and totally worth your time
