Hey! My name is Jonah and I’m from Chicago, Illinois. I’m an undergraduate at Harvard University pursuing a joint concentration in Mathematics and Philosophy with potential minors in Economics and Government. I’ve been working with kids for years: I have experience teaching tennis at my racket club, helping students prepare for SATs, ACTs, and AP Exams, and supervising kids at the sleepaway camp I grew up going to. I love tutoring because of how happy kids get when they finally ‘get’ something; the look on their face when it clicks makes all the time we spent working together worth it.
Outside of the classroom, I compete on Harvard’s collegiate powerlifting team. I write for the Harvard Crimson, and I’m involved in Harvard’s Financial Analysis Club as well as Harvard Sports Analysis Collective. I was a state-level tennis player in high school, and every Sunday, you can find me on the couch watching just about every NFL game. I’m a diehard Dolphins fan and in the off-season, I cheer for the White Sox (although I get disappointed every year). I’ve also written two award-winning research papers in mathematics, as well as one about fatphobia in adolescents.
I’m not exactly sure what I want to do with my life. For now, I want to focus on the two things I love most: learning, and helping other people learn. I look forward to working with you and your child to help them achieve their goals!
