## Jonathan S

My name is Jonathan S. and I am a High School English, Math and History Tutor from Brooklyn, New York.

SchoolTutoring Academy offers individualized math tutoring programs to help students build a strong math foundation and gain confidence in their numerical and analytical abilities.

At SchoolTutoring Academy, our math tutors like to think of Math as more than a bunch of rules and formulae to be memorized and evaluated. Math relates to things we see, hear and do every day in the real world. Our tutoring programs aim to help students make connections between abstract mathematical concepts and events they encounter everyday. Our private tutors will explain core math concepts to your child in a supportive learning environment.

**Finding a math tutor for your child can put them on the path to academic success. Call our Academic Directors today at 1-877-545-7737 to get started.**

Over the years, our tutors have found that when a child understands how math applies to their lives, they learn to appreciate and often begin to enjoy thinking through problems, looking for patterns, recognizing connections and reasoning logically to come up with solutions. Our math tutors expertly guide all our students through the process of learning so they gain confidence in being able to tackle similar problems on their own.

We partner with non-profits to improve math education.

“My educational philosophy is that all children have a willingness to learn but every child has their own unique way of learning.”

“I am of the opinion that the primary determinant of academic performance is motivation—motivation which can be easier to come by when students have the opportunity to interact with course material in ways that go beyond narrowly focused attempts to obtain certain marks.”
