Hello! My name is Jacob F. I'm a recent graduate of the University of Colorado-Boulder with a degree in Film Studies and English literature. I moved to Los Angeles to pursue my passion for two things: film and passing on that love to the next generation. I have several years of teaching experience both through my education at CU (where I tutor students of all levels on film and English) and work with a group called the Binning Family Foundation. At Binning I was in charge of 20+ campers (ages 10-16) and their film educations. We learned how to study film, how to plan a production, and how to make a great short film. I also have experience teaching on the high school and undergraduate level.

As for me as a person, I'm a very fun, outgoing individual with big dreams. I hope to one day write and produce motion pictures. I am an athlete who loves basketball, exercise, and I have a passion for nutrition. Right now I live with my aunt and her five kids and I come from a big family myself, so family is the absolute most important thing in my life.

I can't wait to get to know you and your student. I look forward to working with 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 BA in Film Studies from the University of Colorado-Boulder. I have held jobs in the film industry with high profile companies for the past three years. I've taught film at the elementary, middle school, and high school level.

Public Speaking

I have a great deal of public speaking experience, including classes I took in college. I was also a tour guide at Celestial Seasonings Tea Factory in Boulder, Colorado--a job which involved speaking up to 45 tourists at a time.

Video Production

I have a BA in Film Studies from the University of Colorado-Boulder. I have worked on over twenty student film projects--both my own and other students. I am familiar with many different production programs.
