About Lontih

I graduated with Honors at the top of my high school class, and earned a Bachelor's Degree from one of the most competitive Liberal Arts programs in the nation (USC School of Cinematic Arts). I possess excellent communication and problem solving skills with an uncanny knack of getting to the root of a problem (and conquering it).

I believe it is crucial for the tutor to understand the student's mental and/or learning blocks, and discover simple approaches of breaking through those blocks, thus maximizing student potential for both present and future scholastic challenges.

I specialize in tutoring spelling, reading comprehension, English and creative writing for grades K-12. I have won multiple awards for writing short screenplays and directing short films. I have also completed multiple television and film scripts.

While I understand some things are beyond our control, mutual accountability is paramount to me. Therefore my 24-hour cancellation policy goes both ways. If a student fails to make an appointment, they are responsible for 50% of my rate. If I must cancel within 24 hours, I will provide 50% more instruction time -- free -- at the next session.

To ensure that students have a quiet and comfortable study space in which to learn, I prefer to hold tutoring sessions at the student's residence or a quiet coffee shop. However, please know I am happy to travel to another location if that is preferable to the student.

I hold myself to the highest of standards, and promise to lead my students from confusion to confidence in all areas of academic concern.

I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you in your academic pursuits.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Baseball

I played baseball growing up from the age of 5-14. I was an Assistant Coach in Little League, and taught 8-9 year olds the fundamentals of the game. I am physically fit and capable to play positions in the game, and can offer strategies to aspiring baseball players.

Elementary (K-6th)

I excelled in all subjects from K-6 grade. I won Spelling Bee competitions in the 5th & 6th grade. I was on Academic Decathlon teams through high school. I graduated in the top 5% of my class in both junior high and high school.

Film

I graduated from one of the top film schools in the country (USC School of Cinematic Arts) in 1997. I have been working in the film business for the last 20 years. I have worked on several TV shows and feature films. I have worked at Sony, NBC, Fox and Universal. I currently am a Digital Cinema Associate at a major studio.

Microsoft Outlook

I have worked with Microsoft Outlook on a daily basis for the past eight years. I am proficient in Calendar, Email, Contacts, Notes, etc. I understand the program extremely well; well enough to personally utilize it as well as teach it to children and adults.
