I am a freelance photographer/videographer and trivia nerd who enjoys teaching people that are interested in the world around them. Regarding my photography, I have run my own business for 2 1/2 years and have had shows throughout the Los Angeles area. I have taken classes for many years and would be happy to show my work upon request.

I have no problems teaching older people how to use Macintosh computers and have been described as frustration-free in those circumstances. Regarding basic Mac computer skills, I have worked at web compaines in the past and have no problems. I also know Photoshop very well--I use it very day! Also, I have taught small business owners how to use Photoshop, and have been highly recommended.

My English and writing skills are formidable. I was an English Major with a minor in Shakespeare, so I have studied both writing and literature intensely. Grammar is an interest of mine. I definitely can help you with your English skills. As long as you can understand what I say, you will see progress in your work. I am a published writer also, with articles appearing in magazines around the Los Angeles area.

I am a firm believer that everyone should know the basics, no matter what they do, and that you should know everything backwards and forwards before you progress.

I also like to keep things light--intensity discourages learning, although I expect my students to work hard and perform as well as they can.

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.

Adobe Photoshop

I have worked as a photographer for a number of years and so I am proficient in Photoshop.

Photography

I have been a professional photographer for a number of years, and have an on-line portfolio. I would like to tutor adults in still photography.

Please note that I am conversant in nearly all forms of still photography. My nature images have been featured in national art shows, I shoot professional portraiture as well as local events.

Video Production

I have been producing basic videos for over 20 years and am very familiar with the process of camera, editing and story.

Currently, I am editing a documentary ultimately for the United States Government, have gotten grants from the NEA for video production, and have produced videos for a major motion picture studio. I also have had a writing agent in the past and have had reads at major production companies.
