2nd Grade Reading and Phonics: Not stuck on one approach, adapts to the child
Jonathan has been tutoring our 2nd grader in reading for several weeks now & we could not be more pleased. He is patient, thoughtful, kind, professional and knows what he is talking about and doing. He is not “stuck” on one approach for every child, he understands that every child has a different way of learning and he uses the appropriate tools & techniques to adapt to that child’s style. Hiring the “right” tutor for our daughter was a daunting task at first, after a conversation with Jon all my concerns were eased and the focus is where it belongs, on our daughter. At first she was nervous about getting a tutor and now she asks us when ” Mr. Jon” is coming back! She adores him and we could not be more pleased.

French: Our son is now leading the class with straight A’s
“Jonathan Hoffman tutored our son in French II when William was beginning to struggle with the subject. After several months of Jonathan’s guidance, William began to better understand the language, and his confidence as well his general aptitude in French improved. Two years later in William’s senior year, he was leading his class in conversational French, receiving straight A’s and glowing reports from his professor. In fact, in the year-end report she stated that she had never seen such a turn around in a student.”

Reading and phonics: quality intervention
“As a speech-language pathologist I have a comprehensive understanding of language and literacy, which allowed me to assess Mr. Hoffman’s intervention. ..Without fail Mr. Hoffman exhibited exceptional skills in identifying areas of strength and weakness, developing appropriate intervention goals, and implementing quality intervention strategies. I was able to monitor Mr. Hoffman’s work and to witness excellent progress in his student’s ability to read, comprehend, and spell… His educational background and his Orton-Gillingham training enhance his ability to understand the complex issues that surround children who have weaknesses in the area of literacy.”
