About Jon

I have been a tutor and teacher's assistant off and on since 2005. I started as an Aid to a summer camp and moved to tutoring groups and even leading after school classes. These days I am an English Tutor for Pasadena City College and a freelance drafter for mechanical components.

I love to foster learning in other people and usually learn something myself along the way. If we keep learning, we keep growing. I love being able to talk and have critical discourse with students as well.

I have been tutoring English for nearly 10 years at all levels though, most recently at the college level. I emphasize learning functional concepts first and try to build upon solid mechanics when it comes to writing. My minor at the University of California: San Diego was in Art History and it required a great deal of writing analysis and argumentative papers from short form essays to 15 page short research papers. My major in media also called for in depth analysis of critical works. These helped to refine my ability to analyze material and construct thorough arguments.

I am also a former freelance product photographer and am quite proficient in photoshop. I have taken my spatial skills from photoshop and have applied them to drafting, where I am a SOLIDWORKS certified associate and am proficient with both SOLIDWORKS and AutoCAD.

If you have any questions or wish tutoring, don't hesitate to contact me! I am available on most days in the evenings or late afternoons and am perfectly comfortable in coffee shop or library settings.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

AutoCAD

I am a student of Pasadena City College's(PCC) Industrial Technology program. I have taken several design courses devoted to AutoCAD. Additionally, I work for the PCC facilities services office, drafting renovation and event plans. My portfolio includes apartment concepts developed through autoCAD. I also help in the Fabrication facilities at PCC with the laser cutters, which derive that grand majority of their files and instructions from AutoCAD.

Solidworks

I am a student of the Industrial Technology Program at Pasadena City College. I have passed my Certified Solidworks Associate(CSWA) test as of December, 2015. I also serve as a voluntary TA in the robotics class, as part of the design. I have worked as a proofer for SKILLS USA, working with the PCC Welding team. I have a portfolio with Solidworks derived schematics as well.
