Let's Talk About Your Next Step
My name is Jonah Fishel, and I’m a learning differences tutor. I’ve worked with students with learning disorders, learning disabilities, and “gifted” kids in every context you can think of, from juvenile detention centers to Manhattan penthouses. The same approach works well everywhere: it’s not about the subject I’m tutoring; it’s about showing the student that they are capable of learning something and that it’s worth their time to learn it. I work with middle schoolers through undergraduates, and I provide test prep, homework help, and academic coaching for anyone who’s been left out or left behind in a traditional classroom.
What I Offer
Autism & Special Needs Tutoring
- Comprehensive consultation and assessment to identify your child’s needs and the best way to support them in school.
- Supplementary instruction to reinforce skills and knowledge from the classroom, and communication with teachers to ensure we’re on track.
- Holistic approach to student support, including executive functioning skills, better test-taking, study skills, and more.
After School Tutoring
- Math through the undergraduate 300-level (including multivariable calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations).
- Computer science (including theory and mathematics, but also coding in C/C++, Java, Python, and more).
- Interdisciplinary humanities (including philosophy, creative writing, playwriting, history, and religious studies) and social sciences (including psychology and statistics).
Standardized Test Preparation
- College Entrance Exams, including the ACT and the SAT.
- Graduate School Entrance Exams, including the GRE, the GMAT, and the LSAT.
- Private School Entrance Exams, including the ISEE and the SSAT.

Let's Talk About Your Child's Learning Needs
Free 30-minute consultation includes:
I’ll ask some questions to get to know you, learn about your goals and your obstacles, and start coming up with a study plan.
We’ll decide when the best time for you to test is, have you register for the test, and plan backward from there. We will also decide how many tests you should schedule.
I like to hit the ground running by learning and practicing the best strategies for each student, so I gather information ahead of time in the form of an hour-long cognitive assessment. This tool helps me understand each student’s strengths and weaknesses so I can craft the best study plan for them. I use MindPrint Learning to assess my students’ strengths and needs.
Based on the information you provided me and what I learned from the assessment, I’ll craft a study plan. This is my recommendation for the practice I think you should do before your first test date. If you like, you take this study plan and work through it on your own. If you’d like additional guidance or one-on-one instruction, we’ll talk about signing up for private sessions.
