Teaching Style

Please check out my videos on YouTube (just type doctorjontutoring) The greatest sign of success for a teacher… is to be able to say: "The [students] are now working as if I did not exist.” – Maria Montessori (Italian Physician and Educator; 1870-1952 ) ___________________________________________ If an individual can discover the intrinsic pleasures of learning, then becoming an independent student is a natural by-product. I want all my students to develop into independent learners. - Dr. Jon Independent Students: Can study independently Self-motivated and confident More likely to: - enjoy learning - be fascinated with a variety of subjects – be proficient in several academic areas - continue to learn their entire lives _____________________________________________________________________________________________ As a good parent will expose their child to many articulate and literate people to facilitate their child’s language skills, ….so a good tutor will expose their student to many other tutors, teachers and resources to facilitate, broaden and deepen the student’s academic development and skills. For me, it’s about doing whatever it takes to help students discover the joy in having…. “Eurekas!!!” I love to hear a student say with melodic rapture…….. “Ohhhhh, now I get it!”

My Hobbies
