SUBJECTS: IEW, Inductive Bible Study, Photography, Writing
Jonathan has taught and tutored students in multiple subjects, but his specialty is with English. He first honed his writing skills as a reporter for a small newspaper in Sierra Madre, and then God led him into the education field for the next decade. Since then, he has taught Language Arts to every grade level from 5th to 11th (including a two-year detour delving into World History with 7th graders), as well as Bible, Photography, Guitar, and First Aid/CPR to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. In 2013 he wrapped up four wonderful years at a Christian school in Walnut Creek, moved back to Southern California, got married, and later became the owner of a small tutoring company (Catalyst Educational Support, Inc.). This summer (2017) Jonathan sold the company, and his wife Sarah gave birth to their first boy, who was enthusiastically welcomed by all, especially his big sister. In his (precious little) spare time, Jonathan can’t get enough of the outdoors, and in particular, the ocean. Anything that puts him in, on, or under the water is fair game, but his favorites are surfing, sailing, and scuba diving.
