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.

Adobe Photoshop

I've been working with Photoshop for about 3 years now-- am currently running CS5. I have plenty of experience editing and retouching photographs, as well as building 2D media for publication.

American History

I took AP American History in High School and passed the AP Test with a 5. I read history avidly and consider myself knowledgeable in the subject.

Art History

Majored in Art History at Princeton University. Have completed coursework in European art, Eastern Art, modern, post-modern and contemporary art. I am also a practicing artist, and am very aware of the current contemporary art scene.


I grew up with an Italian mother. I can follow a recipe like a pro, and am also quite the culinary innovator. I am a relatively accomplished baker and candy-maker, can make pasta and pizza from scratch, and know how to grill like a man.


I've been a practicing photographer for 7 years now. I studied photography at Princeton University and am fully knowledgeable in the fields of digital photography, as well as analog photography (35mm, medium and large format) and with a wide range of cameras. I also have been working as a darkroom technician at the Irvine Fine Arts Center for 3 months now. I can teach how to compose, light, edit, and print photographs.


I swam competitively from age 5 to 19. I am a 5-time CIF champion (2006-2007), nationally ranked in the 100 & 200 breaststroke, recruited to NCAA Div1 school.


I have been practicing yoga for 4 years now. I am knowledgeable in the vinyasa, ashtanga, and kundalini practices. I'm a relatively advanced practitioner, and have a very good knowledge of the anatomical motives behind every pose. I am also familiar with the classical program in Pilates.
