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.

ESL/ESOL

I taught ESL (Beginner and Intermediate) for LAUSD and private companies. I am TEFL Certified.

Film

Film appreciation, film criticism, basic video production and editing.
I studied Digital Filmmaking and Music Video Production at New York Film Academy (2007-2008). I have taught Film Appreciation since 1999. I produced films that have shown at Cannes Film Festival SFC, NY International Independent Film & Video Festival, and SoDak Animated Film Festival.

Martial Arts

I am a third degree black belt in Hakkoryu Jujutsu with 14 years of experience. I also am a first degree black belt in Iaido (sword) with eight years experience.

Public Speaking

I taught Speech in the HS level for over 10 years and I hold a Bachelor's degree in Drama. My skills are Public speaking, debate, and interview techniques.

Study Skills

For several years, I taught a 9th grade Elective course titled "Study Skills". We focused on note-taking, organization, and time management.

Theater

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Drama and I have over 15 years experience in Theater Arts. I have a permanent NY State certification in Theater. I am a former advisor to HS extracurricular drama program with extensive on-stage and technical theater experience. I am also a former advisor of an International Thespian Society Troupe and member of Alpha Psi Omega.

Video Production

I have over 10 years of video production experience. I am a freelance music video director and promotional video producer.

Writing

As an English teacher for 20 years, most of my students' assignments were some type of Writing assignment. I also taught research paper writing for 15 of those years, so I'd say that's my specialty. My concentration as an English major was Creative Writing, and I've been a blogger for many years too!

Yoga

I have over 10 years of experience practicing Hatha Yoga/Vinyasa Yoga. In the last 7 years I have focused exclusively on Hot Yoga/Bikram Yoga practice, restorative/yin yoga, and power yoga.
