About Jonathan

Hello. I am an enthusiastic English teacher using some of the latest techniques in foreign language learning. My love of languages began more than a decade ago when I learned a new language to reach out to a local refugee population. Seeing the importance of being able to be an effective communicator drove me to make teaching an important part of my life. For the last 10 years I have worked with a local school district in helping some of the most challenging students to succeed. Since 2002 I have been a volunteer teacher for an international worldwide education organization. I have taught in different cities as well as overseas. My experience has been teaching one-on-one, small groups, and taught at large international conventions. I conduct regular trainings for other teachers, helping them to maintain quality and passion for teaching their students.

I have a Bachelor's of Education degree majoring in TESOL, minoring in languages, and currently enrolled in a Master's program. I am certified in Advanced TESOL Methodology from the Canadian Institute of English and Applied Neuroscience. This means that the methods I use to help you learn English reflect the latest scientific research in how our brains learn language. This results in a engaging and natural language learning experience. You will NOT receive the traditional "chalk-and-talk" or "drill-until-you-kill" exhaustive methods that have made learning English an almost impossible challenge for so many people over the past few decades. Instead, you will be out of your seat, using balloons, scarves, music, movies, and more to gain speaking, listening, reading, vocabulary, writing, and accent reduction skills that will help you to succeed in you personal or professional goals.

If you are ready to enjoy learning English, then I am ready to be your teacher! Please schedule a class with me so we can get started.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I am certified in Advanced TESOL Methodology. This certification allows me to help individuals all over the world to learn English. I have experience teaching one-on-one, classes, and online to students and professionals in China. I use up to 40 different methods that have been proven, by the latest neuroscience research, to help your brain learn and retain the English language.

Public Speaking

For nearly 20 years I have been enrolled in a public speaking course through a nonprofit worldwide educational organization. The curriculum is based on 53 public teaching methods including: fluent delivery, modulation, gestures and facial expressions, poise, use of an outline, extemporaneous delivery, voice quality, tactful yet firm, sound arguments given, and more. This has helped me to speak weekly to groups of 40-60, conduct trainings for other speakers, speak at conventions in local cities as well as guest speak in foreign countries to crowds of hundreds and thousands. In the past 5 years I have also instructed this course helping others (ages 8 to 72) speak confidently in front of others.

Reading

I am currently employed by a local school district working with students with learning, physical, emotional, and mental disabilities. This area of teaching as allowed me to successfully help some of the most challenging students. In my years with this district I have work with students from preschool to community college level. I have help them in a variety of subjects. This experience has given me the patience and passion needed to offer real assistance to each student I work with.

Vocabulary

I have extensive training and experience helping non-native English speakers expand their vocabulary and improve pronunciation while reducing accents. I've also taught and learned foreign languages which helps me understand the challenges faced by my students. I've taught one-on-one, classes, and online to students all over the world.

Specifically dealing with vocabulary, I use different teaching methods that work naturally with the brain to help retention and memorization. My students will also learn to use new words correctly and in different situations.

Great professional

When I arrived here in the USA I saw myself struggling with my job because of my poor English in the business field. As known, language/communication is a big part of a successful carrier. So I decided to look for help. Jonathan has been a great tutor! He is always super patient and I learn something new and useful in each class. After three months, I feel more confident to talk to my clients and
