Hi! I'm a very friendly and patient tutor experienced in working with all ages from 1st grade through adult. I specialize in languages (Polish and French), reading, writing and LSAT tutoring. I've worked with kids of all ages as well as with adults on improving their reading, listening comprehension and writing skills. I'm especially good at working with foreign students as I come from a European family and am used to many cultures. I was always a very good student, 3.95 GPA and excelled at standardized tests. I also have experience as an LSAT tutor and I recently scored a 175 on the exam. I also have a masters degree in filmmaking if you'd like some help with learning some aspect of film or video production. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Film

I have a masters degree in filmmaking which I received with a 3.9+ GPA. My experience and knowledge in film is very broad - I am well-versed in film history, foreign film, film theory and vocabulary and can tutor anyone needing help with a film class or simply trying to learn more about film. I can teach you about lighting, camera lenses and angles and various types of editing.

As well as the theoretical background, I have directed several short films and documentaries, so I also have extensive experience in hands-on film production. My experience includes all stages of film production, from writing a script to casting and rehearsing actors, directing, and editing. I am very familiar with Avid post-production software, having worked as an assistant editor and editor over the past few years. I am also able to tutor in the more specific subject area of script supervising for film.

Polish

I am a native Polish speaker as I was born in Poland and continue to speak it with my parents and with relatives living in Poland. I can also read and write Polish, and have some experience translating research materials from Polish into English.

Video Production

I have a masters degree in filmmaking and have been working in film and video production for the past 5 years. I've worked as a camera person on a few documentaries and wedding videos, and as an editor on short films, documentaries and reality TV. I've also directed short films and documentaries. I can teach you the basics of using a video camera and post-production software. I'm especially familiar with Avid editing software, having worked with it for over 5 years. Having worked as an editor, I can teach you what kind of shots are important to get so that your video will cut together smoothly. If you need help learning the basics of film vocabulary such as shot sizes and camera angles, I can help with that as well.
