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 -- and I'm currently working for a tutoring company in Knoxville while I complete a graduate degree in applied mathematics.

I've been a coach for so long because I enjoy it, but 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.

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 dissatisfaction or ask for specialized help.

Schedule & Availability

As a graduate student, 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.

In addition, I live fairly close

patient and intelligent mentor

Jonathan is a very educated person, and he takes the time to explain things to you in such a way that.. this time it finally clicks! He is well spoken and poised, yet knows when to lighten the work load with a bit of humor if need be. This statistics class I need for my BA was terrifying in the beginning. After utilizing all the resources given, and even tutors provided by the school, I was still struggling with the course. Thats when I searched for outside help, and I am so overjoyed that I did! I saw many tutors available and chose Jonathan because he is so reasonably priced. I will assure you his lessons are worth every penny! Now after only 3 short sessions.. I actually believe I can pass this course! I wish I would have found him sooner! He makes learning something you look forward to

A Fear conquering gem of a tutor.

My session with Jonathan was so refreshing! He made me feel comfortable from the very beginning. He was very patient, and informative. During a difficult part of the statistics he was teaching me, he even came down to my level and used an unconventional way of showing me with his hands what upper - lower bound parameters looked like. He did a short overview of the lesson right before it ended to solidify that I understood what he taught. I feel hope for the first time since I started this course. Jonathan is giving me the tools i need to succeed in this unfamiliar land of graphs and numbers. I once called any math deadly predator, I can now call it a fluffy kitty. He will raise your confidence, as well as your grade! Excellent choice of tutors. Look no further, you have found the diamond you were searching for with Jonathan. Happy studying!

Very helpful.

He helped me with a C++ coding assignment - identified areas where my coding was weak and helped me understand how to better construct my coding for future assignments. Also suggested better debugging programs to help me identify errors in the future. I will definitely use him again!

He was great!

Jonathan was just the right tutor for my daughter learning Algebra 2. He sensed her insecurities immediately and was very patient with her. He explained concepts in a way that made sense to her. I’m grateful we found Jonathan!

Amazing tutor

Jonathan helped me with understanding the usage of “R”. He helped me on short notice, the day of, and was super friendly. Best tutor I have had yet and will be reaching out again. Schedule with him if you can!

Good explanations and prepared materials

Jonathan met with me to review an assignment on ridge and lasso regression analysis. He took the time to look over the materials I was working on, and then go through solutions together. It really helped, and I'm very grateful!
