Profile

Hi!

My name is Jonathan, and I am a tutor in the Clear Lake/Pearland Area. I am a recent college graduate (May 2017), with a Bachelor’s of Science in Microbiology, and a minor in Mathematics. I have had experience tutoring/teaching (in both paid and volunteer positions) for several years in a variety of subjects, including Math, Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics), English, History, SAT, and MCAT! I am currently volunteering as a GED tutor at the YMCA International Services, in Downtown Houston.

What I find most rewarding about tutoring is helping a student reach the “lightbulb” moment. Often, the student is missing but one or two critical building blocks, preventing them from fully grasping the topic. Being a tutor is kind of like being a detective: you have to determine what concept(s) the student is struggling with, and find a way to help improve their understanding. No two students are alike, and students often require different approaches (i.e. visual learning vs. hands-on learning, etc) to complete their understanding. I find that process of investigation and teaching invigorating, and watching a student reach that moment of comprehension is incredibly rewarding.

Thank you for considering me as a possible tutor. Hope to hear from you!
