I have had a well rounded life which has taken me to many countries. I appreciate the variety of ways that different cultures approach their studies as well as their values, which can affect the choice of study.
I like to help make material as relevant as possible to my student's life, so that they are fully engaged and can understand how learning is personally important. When tutoring English to a Japanese business woman whose business was textiles, we studied fashion magazines and talked endlessly about color and fabric as well as the different styles of doing business. She found our work extremely helpful because she could put it right back into her everyday life.
I have worked as a copywriter and editor and have a strong understanding of how writing can work and influence. Two of my essays were published this year in local newspapers and started a campaign based on the subjects I had chosen. I am passionate about what I do.
Having also made films and painting, I can help a student explore create blocks and get them on their feet with project material. It's not only the subject that must be understood in these cases, but how to work with a group. I can help the student identify his or hers strongest skills.
If it's a history lesson we're working on, I will bring additional material to class to help illuminate the subject for my student as well as current events which I think might show how modern history actually is!
I have drawn since I was a child, both abstract and realistic. I have used my artwork in films and most recently had a piece in a New York art show.
I have directed over five films and am a screenplay writer. I have an extensive understanding of the film arts.
I have been a photographer and videographer for many years. I started with a Leica and like many now use a digital camera and my phone. I have a photograph in the permanent MOMA collection and have been in several art shows in NYC. I also use my photos in my films.
I was a theatre communications major in college and have continued by studying in New York with some of the finest acting teachers including Shelley Winters. I have directed plays and taught acting for filmmakers at a film school.
I have made 4 films, three of which were broadcast on television. One of them took me to many international film festivals and won a prestigious award. I also won special student status at the Telluride Film Festival, where I took courses with great filmmakers. I've studied and taught acting with some of the best teachers and have been brought on to consult with my students who were inspired by my classes.
