About Nicolas

I want to share my passions and interests with people of all ages. I truly believe that teaching people and spreading information is the best thing to do with knowledge once it is acquired.

As a Cum Laude graduate of The American University in Washington, D.C. I studied film and photography production in addition to literature, writing for visual media and international relations. During my time as an undergraduate I developed a keen sense for lighting, camera work, editing, history, grammar and writing of all forms. I first began to teach guitar to a neighbor to earn extra money while studying, but soon realized I was passionate about sharing the feeling I had experienced when I began to know how things were put together; from back to front.

I am a great English teacher because I developed an understanding of formal writing and grammaticism through my International Relations and Foreign Policy studies and an understanding of an expressive writing style through my Literature and Film studies.

Cultural expression has always been my true passion. I first began taking pictures, making films and creating art in high school, where I quickly realized that it gave me true satisfaction to be able to look at and experience something unique that you have created. After I had taken all available courses. I knew that film and photography were not only a way to spread information, but that they were the new tools that artists had to be expressive with in this digital age. I currently hold a degree in Film and Media Production as well as International Relations and a minor degree in Literature and Writing for Visual Media.

Please feel free to contact me for a free consultation, I look forward to helping you, or your student, in the curriculums of Art, Film, Photography and English/ Grammar/ Composition.
