About Jon

Greetings, Thank you for considering me.
I am Native American from a pueblo in NM. I have a spectrum of experiences/careers,
which has allowed me to have a diversity of knowledge and skills.
My primary career is I'm an orthopedic surgical/physician Physician Assistant. Actually, medicine has been my primary career experience, having been a Navy corpsman, Marine medic, Army (National Guard) helicopter flight medic and battalion surgeon, and EMT.
I'm on a self-imposed sabbatical from medicine to pursue a teacher certification in
math and the sciences, to teach middle/high school students. In addition, I am a middle/high school coach in girls/boys basketball and golf. I attended the University of Albuquerque, Harvard University, University of Minnesota-Duluth, and the University of New Mexico.
I have been a long-term substitute teacher in the Albuquerque Public School system
for 5 years with an emphasis in math, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, biology, physics, health sciences (anatomy & physiology), New Mexico history, media, and Native American history. Some of my other experiences are as an associate producer for a nationwide Native American radio talk program, producer/director for a live television talk program on public access, and a musician(percussionist). I've worked/taught/coached archery, having worked in archery retail. I am a nationally certified archery instructor through the U.S. National Archery Association, as well as a certified golf instructor through the U.S. Golf Instructors Association. I have been a Kellogg Fellow and member of the National Association of Physician Assistants and NM High School Coaches Association.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Biology

My professional career is in the medical profession. I am a physician assistant, have a minor in biology/biochemistry in college, and my major was math. I have taught biology in high school and earth science in middle school. I have been an adjunct instructor at a PA school, in anatomy & physiology. I tutor many students; however, I seek Native American students to help them in their education, as I am Native American. Even though my zip code is out of town, I live in Albuquerque, on the northeast heights.
