"Hey, I am Jonathan! In 2016 I graduated from my undergrad Connecticut College, Magna Cum Laude, with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Economics. Throughout my time in college, I encountered many situations where I was tutoring students on a certain topic.

This well-rounded approach got me a job as a French tutor at the college cultural center. I worked there for roughly 2.5 years and was exposed to a wide variety of students, coming to me with different speaking levels and needs.
