Maths: Changing struggling students into academic successes (London)

When students struggle or lose motivation in maths, I help them become academically successful.

With over 15 years experience teaching and tutoring maths, I know how to support struggling students become successful and motivated.

I help students discover they can be successful at maths. This improves their motivation and leads to success.

This is what one of my students wrote:

"When I was in 7th grade (12 years old), maths was my worst subject. I had given up in class and felt like I would be one of those kids who would just never get it.

Mr. Kahn taught me that maths wasn't just numbers and memorization; there was a more logical way of thinking about it that I could actually grasp. By 9th grade (14 years old) I was at the top of my class. I am now a junior in high school and am in Advanced Placement Pre-Calculus. This is something which I can proudly show to colleges and it is a direct result of Mr. Kahn's help."

Jonathan Kahn is a patient, knowledgeable, reliable & effective teacher and tutor. He has worked with our two daughters, grades 4 (9 years old) & 7 (12 years old) over the past year, and both of their math teachers noted improvement. In fact, our 7th grader scored advanced on her math PSSA this year. Jonathan has a clear & kind communication style, and a genuine passion about math and helping kids "get it" !

We initially employed Jonathan to work with our son to prepare for a 7th grade math placement exam. Our son earned one of the highest marks in his class. Our son enjoyed working with Jonathan so much that he asked to continue to work with him during the school year. Our son earned an A in a 7th grade advanced math class. At the end of the school year, my son asked if he could continue to work with Jonathan over the summer to continue to advance his knowledge of math. I think this speaks volumes about Jonathan’s ability to make a tough subject both fun and interesting.

My 11th grade (16 years old) daughter had been working with another math tutor. When she began to prepare for her finals this spring she asked if she could work with Jonathan since our son was so complimentary of him. She did so and was very impressed with his ability to simplify complex ideas and to show her multiple ways to approach a single math problem. We also gave Jonathan’s name to a close family friend who was preparing for an Advanced Placement Calculus exam. She too praised Jonathan’s teaching methods.

We highly recommend Jonathan!
