About Jonathan

I have been teaching A&P and Zoology at the college level for the past four years. I have developed many word association based learning techniques as well as games and activities geared toward making a relevant connection with students, something that is essential to learning.
In teaching I try to draw upon my 20+ years' experience as a practicing doctor of chiropractic. As many students who take A&P and Zoology are planning to enter the health care field, this is a helpful, relevant, and interesting way to bring otherwise dry information to life.
My areas of expertise include neuromusculoskeletal Anatomy and Physiology, and Chordate Anatomy, Ecology, and diversity. I look forward to helping many students learn these sometimes hard to learn subjects.

Background Check: Passed

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.

Anatomy

My 20+ years of active practice as a chiropractor has produced an extensive health care related background in Anatomy and Physiology. Additionally I completed a 360 hour post graduate program in orthopedics, and there is an ongoing state licensing requirement for continuing education, which includes A&P topics. This background has opened the door for me to teach A&P at three area colleges, and offer a unique more clinical approach to learning the subject.

Biology

I have intensive background in Biology at both undergraduate and graduate levels. This experience encompasses plant, animal and human Biology. I have also taught Introductory Biology II (Zoology) at the college level.

Nutrition

I developed and am currently teaching an introductory course in Nutrition at St. John Fisher College. Fall 2016 will be my third full term teaching the course, and I have made several improvements along the way, including the use of self study worksheets for such topics as nutrition labels and carbohydrate intake, and more in class group discussions. I much prefer written exam questions in my course, as it demonstrates whether students understand the topics instead of merely memorizing a bunch of facts and numbers. In class learning tools have included Jeopardy type games, book/journal article report discussions, and nutrition label analysis using pre-packaged food that students bring in with them.

Physiology

My 20+ years of active practice as a chiropractor has produced an extensive health care related background in Anatomy and Physiology. Additionally I completed a 360 hour post graduate program in orthopedics, and there is an ongoing state licensing requirement for continuing education, which includes A&P topics. This background has opened the door for me to teach A&P at three area colleges, and offer a unique more clinical approach to learning the subject.

Zoology

My undergraduate degree was in wildlife biology with a concentration in Zoology. Since that time I have begun teaching Zoology at the college level. I have taught Zoology at St. John Fisher College since 2012.
