Personal Statement

My degrees are in math and science, and I've been a writer for 40 years. I specialize in test prep, particularly for SAT and ACT. I cover all the bases: math, English, writing, reading, science, and strategy.

My teaching style is to be patient and supportive but persistent, always keeping the goal in mind. I design a schedule for each student depending on his/her abilities. With thousands of hours of SAT and ACT tutoring behind me, I know all the tricks to getting to the answer faster ...

Reviews

I was very lucky to find Jon to tutor my son. After only a few lessons with Jon my son improved his ACT score 3 points! He is able to tutor for all parts of the ACT. Jon is reliable, easy going and very knowledgeable. You can not due better than Jon (coach) for a tutor. I highly recommend him.

Jon was very patient and knows how to relay the lesson to you. He explained quadratics better than my teacher!
- Aleta F. from Pompano Beach, FL
Jon tries to understand where your areas of struggle are in order to build upon your foundation of various subjects. As a calculus student, he has been helping me bone up on geometry skills that I have long since forgotten for my impending SAT test.
- Abby D. from Pompano Beach, FL
Jon displayed a thorough knowledge of the SAT and gave me immediate guidance in what to look for on the test. My immediate need is in the writing portion which he is gearing my studies toward but is also giving me much needed guidance in other portions of the test. I am looking forward to my next lesson.
- Zachary D. from Pompano Beach, FL
Coach Jon was very patient, understood what my weaknesses were, came prepared with books in hand; and told me what I needed to work on. His calm manner is helpful and allows me to focus on what needs to be done.

Went over some more GRE math problems. He helped my work through them and figure how to do them on my own.
- Stephanie C. from West Palm Beach, FL
Coach, as he introduced himself, was calm, easy to talk to, and very helpful with direction. I would highly recommend him.
- Julie L. from Pompano Beach, FL
Easy to understand. He was very detailed but simple to follow. He is knowledgeable and with a great character. Thank you so much for all your help!
- Gabriela L. from Boynton Beach, FL
Jon was perceptive of my daughter's needs and explained the material well. Punctual, honest, and provided guidance towards getting my daughter on track, even though it meant going a different route then continuing with him as a tutor. He speaks in terms of the child's best interest.
- Alyssa K. from Boca Raton, FL
Thank you, Jon P. Our son would like to do a few more sessions with after these next final exams for the first semester. He'd like to set himself up so he is comfortable and confident in the 2nd semester. We're looking forward to seeing you again and he is excited about working with you again. Bottom line, when my kid says "Mom, I think something clicked, because I totally got what he was explaining to me and actually enjoyed learning how he was showing me to learn what I was getting stuck on!" I know we made the right choice! Again, THANK YOU!!!
- Keiki S. from Lake Worth, FL
Coach Jon has been tutoring my son for the past few months in preparation for the SAT. He has shown patience and understanding not only with teaching the material but with my son and his sometimes lack of enthusiasm as well. He provides excellent feedback with every lesson and I feel that Coach Jon has provided my son with the necessary tools to take the exam. We are so pleased with his tutoring that we will continue on with Coach for ACT tutoring. Thank you for all you've done Coach!
- Karen P. from Delray Beach, FL
A patient and tenacious coach who encourages his students and boosts their confidence. My teenage daughter worked with him for a number of weeks on standardized test prep. He knows his subject areas and did a great job analyzing her strengths/weaknesses to come up with strategies. I asked my daughter if she would recommend him, and she said, "absolutely."
- C. E. from Delray Beach, FL

We are very happy with results!!!! Thank so much coach!! Great Job.

My son felt Jon was excellent. He came through for us on late notice. Very professional and excellent ways of explaining things.

Coach (Jon) was very patient while working with my twins on their SSAT prep. He was always very punctual and professional. I would highly recommend him.
- Ashley M. from Palm Beach, FL
I am highly satisfied with Jon P. and the services he provides in helping my son prepare for his SAT. I can't believe the ease in which your company operates through its website, it makes everything easy!
- Joanne V. from Delray Beach, FL
Dear Coach Jon, We are glad to have you now. You are very patient and you communicate really well with our daughter. She actually was excited because she was able to do her times 9 rapidly after her first lesson. Thank you!! See you soon.
- Romy N. from Boynton Beach, FL
So far so good. My teens like Mr. Jon. They state to remember lots of old work. Thank you Mr. Jon. Good job.
- Catherine V. from Delray Beach, FL
As soon as Jon said, "Call me coach" he had my son's attention. His next words were, "I know you have had those". Jon was right...he has had those, and by the end of his first session he had earned my son's respect as a good coach! Thanks again for a great session and first impression! We feel confident we picked the right SAT coach. Look forward to seeing you next week Jon.
- Diane S. from Delray Beach, FL
