Information about Jonathan
For the last year, I have been one of the go-to tutors for Chelsea and Fulham tutors for everything from History and Economics A-level to Maths and English common entrance and GCSE. As a very keen sportsman who pursues a daily fitness schedule, I have also teamed up with pupils to run long distances between study sessions I find the exercise dramatically enhances their cognitive abilities.
Having studied an undergraduate degree in Law, I soon moved on to complement these studies with my pursuit of the CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) and CAIA (Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst) designations. In hindsight it is clear that my tackling of a law degree stemmed from my curiosity and interest in the studying of the subject matter rather than viewing it as a means to a future career within legal services hence tailoring further studies to finance. It is this curiosity to learn that I seek to instil in all my students. I complement this by applying numerous motivational strategies to further push my students to not just reach their potential, but, for them to eventually surpass these limits.
Having attended Winchester College for Sixth Form, I am conscious of the efforts one must put in during such entrance examinations, and would therefore also be valuable to all considering attending Winchester College. I thoroughly enjoy seeing all my students tackling the subjects they least enjoy, usually due to their weaker grades, and turning them into subjects they not only get straight As in, but subjects they learn to love.
I have also had a personal experience with tutoring, having tutored my academically challenged younger sister for her maths and physics GCSEs. Whilst we fell slightly short of our 2 A*s target, I raised her grade from a C and D respectfully, to 2 As with only 3 months before exams. I was very proud of her for this achievement. I stress the importance of patience with such pupils. In class, most pupils pretend to understand concepts long before they truly do perhaps out of the embarrassment in front of fellow peers. In a one on one environment, I ensure all my pupils not only understand the mechanisms by which to tackle questions, but that they thoroughly understand the concepts behind these questions. With regards to English and History, we use a very smart approach to enhance their point scoring potential in essay based questions.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions or queries that I may able to assist you with.
Availability: As I spend my days studying, I am very flexible in working around my clients.

I have have had almost two years of proactively tutoring pupils throughout London, from primary school, to +11, to GCSEs, to A-Levels. My approach to tutoring each tier is different as I target weaknesses systematically and acutely to ensure my pupils get the most out of their lessons.
Feedback For Jonathan (9)
Really good tutor and helped me so much . Wish I found him earlier
Jonathan has been tutoring me only for a few weeks and I already feel great progress in my a-level BS. He is very enthusiastic, he uses different approach in explaining difficult tasks when I struggle, goes extra mile trying various techniques until I feel fully confident. I am very happy with Jonathan`s tuitions and would highly recommend him to anyone.
Jonathan is everything you can ask for in a tutor! He shows dedication and interest in his teaching subjects, and has always proved to be extremely reliable. He is a brilliant tutor, with first class ability and knowledge and is always up for a challenge. His lessons are always well planned and he always has the right approach to take with research, analysis, and essay writing. He is extremely thorough, very patient and willing to make himself available on short notice. For topics that I did not understand, Jonathan helped by breaking down certain elements in to a structured way that suited my learning style. Thanks to his fantastic help I achieved top marks. Could not recommend him any more!
Jonathan just finished his first session with my son and we are very happy. My son is a lot more confident now for his upcoming GCSE exam this coming Monday after working on his exam technique today. And my son looks forward to continue working with him during this exam period as he already feels the benefits.
I sought Jonathan`s help on two occasions. Both times he helped me find solutions to my business queries.
I highly recommend him, he is very professional and makes sure that any work he helps me with is of the highest possible standard.
Jonathan tutored my daughter Imogen for her year end history exam and proved to be the perfect teacher. He helped Imogen focus on the key points of the course and guided her through essay planning and structure. He was a great motivator for Imogen. We found Jonathan to be highly reliable and extremely professional.
Johathan is an excellent tutor. He went the extra mile with me to help me understand the topic and provided me feedback on my work and how I can improve it
I was looking for a tutor to help me with personal statement for a management role, asap. Several tutors came along but my gut feelings said I should pick Jonathan. it was one of the most brilliant choices I have ever made. Jonathan did not only produce a brilliant piece of work he was fast too! He exceeded every expectation I had.
I have never given a review but I will be selfish if I don`t let others know about him. he is smart and very efficient am lucky I met this young man.
