Biography

Jonathan is a medical student at NYU School of Medicine. He graduated with a Summa Cum Laude Bachelor of Science in Neural Science from NYU's College of Arts and Science. He views science and math as sophisticated languages for distilling the simple from the complex, and loves sharing his excitement for these fields. After years of practicing and refining his studentship, he loves to share the tips and tricks he has learned to help students build their understanding. He believes that understanding is the goal, and tests are just a measure of understanding. The successful academic path, then, is paved by placing the focus on understanding, not memorization, and removing any obstacles that impede the measurement of understanding (e.g. test anxiety). He has tutored biology, chemistry, physics, math, SAT, ACT, and ISEE since 2010. As a yoga teacher, Jonathan has studied with Sri Dharma Mittra in New York City since 2011. He completed his 200 hour certification in June 2013 and has been teaching at the Dharma Yoga Center since. Testimonials: "Jonathan is beyond amazing. Brilliant. We can't be happier. My son is doing so much better than the beginning of the year. His new study techniques seem to be working. Thank you for helping him develop a new program to help him study." "Jon has been a tremendous help to us. We are very appreciative of all the time and hard work that Jonathan has extended to us this far. Thank you for helping us find such talent." "I took my math placement test, and was planning on taking regular precalculus, but I ended up getting not only above the average score on the test for regular precalc, but for honors too! So my math teacher ended up placing me in the honors precalc course this year, which is going to be really difficult but I think I am going to try it and see how it goes. The tutoring this summer definitely made that possible so thank you!!" "My son has worked with several tutors - for the SAT, AP exams, subject tests. He is a top student and a very analytical kid with high scores on standardized testing. He ranked Jonathan far far above any of his prior tutors-for grasp of material, teaching style, organization and efficiency of teaching. Jonathan taught my son half of bio in 10 days with daily testing, quizzes and reading for the SAT subject test. Unbelievably my son had a great time (despite the fact that this was over a vacation), really enjoyed the sessions and aced the test. Jonathan is a exceptionally wonderful teacher! Your child willl be lucky to have him!" "Jonathan started as a tutor for my son who was beginning his Junior year of high school. He needed support with his AP Chem, Math and overall prepping and studying for ACT and SAT Subject tests. Jonathan immediately gained his trust by really teaching him deeper into the subjects at hand, which long term has really allowed him to excel. Jonathan is very thorough and thoughtful in his teaching. He was very honest up front about what kind of student he thought my son was & where he needed work; he found his strengths and worked lessons through from there; he improved my son's confidence as a student in his most important year and he has seen dramatic results - from his highest ever GPA to higher than expected ACT scores. Moreover, Jonathan keeps him organized, focused and planning for the next study sessions and exams. Jonathan is also exceptionally caring for his students. My son has recommended Jonathan to his own friends - which I think speaks volumes. It is clear that Jonathan is very very smart, but he has the ability to teach others, which is a very different skill." "Jonathan is truly the best - he cares about all his students in a way like no other and his dedication to tutoring is remarkable. Thank you for all you do Jonathan! Forever thankful for your help and support" "You're an amazing teacher! I think I learned more in two weeks with you about bio (in general, not even necessarily relating to the test) than I did during year-long classes at school." "Jonathan tutored me for an SAT subject test over the course of about 2 months. Througout these 2 months, I had a lot of fun, deepened my understanding for the subject, and most importantly gained the confidence I needed to do well on my subject test. I would definitely hire Jonathan again when taking another test because he had a huge impact on my test preparedness and my confidence going into the test. Jonathan is a truly exceptional tutor from his ability to make things fun and interesting, his flexibility in scheduling and style of learning, and his effectiveness. Something really great that Jonathan does is send questions over text to reinforce what you may have gone over that day or past tutoring sessions. 10/10 would recommend."
