Jonathan Black Private Tutor
871 222 1156
Responsible, detail oriented and results driven private tutor with experience of more than two decades. I specialize in Mathematics, British History and English literature. I have taught students to excel in academics while making them eloquent and knowledgeable about the word we live in. Geography, Science and Ecology have also been a part of my study plans and as I have taught many children; my own knowledge has also increased about psychology. I wish to continue this process of imparting knowledge while learning more!
Self Employed (Apr 1996 to Present) 24 Years & 9 Months
• Responsible for visiting students and teaching them the subjects they need help in. I maintain workbooks and teach from my own books, without following the same curriculum as school. • Use of own books is for the benefit of students, so they can understand the subject beyond the outlines of the book. • I have been able to teach all subjects to children of middle and high school. So far, all my students have been able to get excellent grades since they learn the subject well. After the curriculum from tution books is finished, I revise the school course with children so they remain ahead of their school class and have a solid understanding of the subjects. • I also note my students' weak points and help them become stronger at them. I have helped several shy students gain confidence and speak eloquently. • Speaking skills, mannerism and social interaction are some of the things I work on with my students. Apart from curriculum, we discuss world affairs and geography. History of the British Empire and Europe are also discussed so that my students have good general knowledge.
