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 to UT campus and am capable of traveling about 20 miles to accommodate student needs.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Additionally, my research is in implementing trading algorithms which I do mainly in C++. I am also a tutor at the Min Kao tutoring center for certain computer science classes.

STAT

Five Stars... He really helped me to do my assignment. I would work with him in future. Thanks Jonathan !

Amani, 2 lessons with Jonathan

Extremely Helpful Tutor

Jonathan A. has a done a great job of helping my daughter with her AP Statistics class. My daughter commented after her second lesson with Jonathan A. that she's definitely seeing the light at the end of tunnel and feeling much more confident about AP Statistics. My daughter also mentioned that she's now able to ask better questions and thereby take her understanding of statistics to the next level. She had a statistics exam today and said that she actually felt good about the exam. That's a first!!

Great Tutor

He taught me ways to figure the problem out that took less time and effort to get the answer. Great teacher and informative. I highly recommend Jonathan for a Tutor.

Siler, 1 lesson with Jonathan

Knowledgeable Tutor

Jonathan helped me understand the statistics concepts I was struggling with. I passed the test I had in my class the next day. I plan on working with him again in the coming weeks.

Great Calculus Tutor

So far so good, the end is insight. .

Computer Science/C++ Help Excellent

Jonathan does an excellent job with C++. He definitely knows his stuff and shows great patience with his students. Specifically, he fully understands the programming art of C++. Recommend him with highest marks.

George, 6 lessons with Jonathan

Amazing tutor

Jonathan is a wonderful teacher. He is extremely patient and knows to teach math in a way that others can understand. My daughter had struggled with pre-cal most of the semester due to a teacher who is no longer vested in her students. Thanks to Jonathan my daughter's confidence with math has improved! We highly recommend Jonathan and will not hesitate to use him again in the future!

Effective Time

My first lesson with Jonathan was excellent. He knew exactly how to help me. This was the first week of my statistics class and Jonathan has a laid a great foundation of understanding statistics through our first meeting!
