I taught ESL (Beginner and Intermediate) for LAUSD and private companies. I am TEFL Certified.


Film appreciation, film criticism, basic video production and editing.
I studied Digital Filmmaking and Music Video Production at New York Film Academy (2007-2008). I have taught Film Appreciation since 1999. I produced films that have shown at Cannes Film Festival SFC, NY International Independent Film & Video Festival, and SoDak Animated Film Festival.

Martial Arts

I am a third degree black belt in Hakkoryu Jujutsu with 14 years of experience. I also am a first degree black belt in Iaido (sword) with eight years experience.

Public Speaking

I taught Speech in the HS level for over 10 years and I hold a Bachelor's degree in Drama. My skills are Public speaking, debate, and interview techniques.

Study Skills

For several years, I taught a 9th grade Elective course titled "Study Skills". We focused on note-taking, organization, and time management.


I hold a Bachelor's degree in Drama and I have over 15 years experience in Theater Arts. I have a permanent NY State certification in Theater. I am a former advisor to HS extracurricular drama program with extensive on-stage and technical theater experience. I am also a former advisor of an International Thespian Society Troupe and member of Alpha Psi Omega.

Video Production

I have over 10 years of video production experience. I am a freelance music video director and promotional video producer.


As an English teacher for 20 years, most of my students' assignments were some type of Writing assignment. I also taught research paper writing for 15 of those years, so I'd say that's my specialty. My concentration as an English major was Creative Writing, and I've been a blogger for many years too!


I have over 5 years of experience practicing Hatha Yoga/Vinyasa Yoga. In the last 2 years I have focused exclusively on Hot Yoga/Bikram Yoga practice.
