I am passionate about photography, travel and languages. For the last several years I have been living overseas in Belgrade, Serbia, where I was able to pursue all three simultaneously. While living abroad I was able to share my passion for photography and language through tutoring. Newly relocated to the Pioneer Valley, I am eager to share my knowledge and experience with you.
I have been a professional photographer for over 24 years. My work has appeared in newspapers, magazines and corporate publications throughout the US and overseas. I have photographed a wide variety of subjects including news stories, presidential campaigns, family portraits, events and corporate portraits. My career has spanned the evolution from film to digital photography. In teaching courses for middle school and high school students, and private classes for adults, I have created a curriculum for an intro course in digital photography. I can work with you on all aspects of photography - from what the buttons and dials mean on the camera, through photography basics such as depth of field, f-stops and shutter speeds, exposure and composition into the more creative aspects of realizing your photographic vision. We can also work on basic digital editing techniques so you can confidently get your photos from your digital camera into the computer and work on them to make them look their best. My goal for each session will be to teach a photographic concept or skill and give you a photo "assignment" where you will be able to put into practice what you have learned. We will go over your work in subsequent classes and continue to build up your skills and develop your personal artistic style.
Speaking another language is an invaluable tool in the modern world. It opens up entire new worlds for you to experience and allows you to communicate with people far and wide. Plus, it is so exciting to be able to communicate in another language! I am fluent in Spanish and have found the language incredibly helpful in my travels, both in the US and abroad. I have experience teaching introductory Spanish courses at the High School level, as well as tutoring lower, middle and high school students. I have several course books for Intro to Spanish at a college level and would be happy to work with you to learn Spanish, or to help you with a course you are currently enrolled in.
I am flexible with scheduling and am available for tutoring during the day or evening. While I do have a 4-hour cancellation policy, I offer make-up classes.
I look forward to hearing from you to dive into the exciting subjects of photography or Spanish!
I have been working as a professional photographer for over 24 years. I have vast experience shooting film and digital images for editorial clients (including newspapers and international magazines like Time and Newsweek), executive portraits and events for corporate annual reports, PR photos for entertainment companies, educational institutions, and documentary feature stories. I have taught "Intro to Digital Photography" courses to Middle School students and private groups of adults. The course work includes instruction about the use of cameras, basic photographic and compositional techniques and basic digital editing tips on computer programs, as well as assignments created each week to practice the concepts learned in class.
I have been working as a Spanish tutor for the last four years. I created and taught a one year course in Beginner Spanish for High School students. I have successfully tutored seniors for their final exams, and have worked as a private tutor for several Middle School and High School students throughout the school year. I have also worked as a substitute teacher for Lower School, Middle School and High School Spanish classes.
