Mr. Jon Moreng

Welcome to my webpage!

Biography: I earned my undergraduate degree in mathematics from Vanderbilt University. In 1993, I co-founded a private tutoring company, Academic Advantage, at which time I earned a master’s degree in Secondary Mathematics Education from Fairleigh Dickinson University.  I have also earned post-graduate credits through the State College of New Jersey. I was the recipient of the Distinguished Staff award in 2003, the HSA high school teacher of the year in 2009, and the THS teacher of the year in 2012.

Personal Education Philosophy: No matter the course I teach, my classroom philosophies are the same. The first and foremost is for all of my students to have a command of the concepts addressed throughout the duration of the course. I am committed to conveying material in a manner that is clear and organized and to create a positive and stimulating learning environment for my students. Each student plays an equally important role in the learning process and should:

  1. be willing to apply 100% effort both in class and at home in order to  achieve an optimal outcome
  2. be willing to take risks in offering personal insights or in asking questions related to the topic at hand, and
  3.  increase self-awareness and take personal accountability for his/her actions.
