About Sheldon

To my future student,

It is a difficult task to ask for help. So, kudos to you for being brave enough to make that first step. Whether you came to this decision on your own or someone special is pushing you along, I am glad you have reached out, and I am even happier to be your tutor.

For the past seven years, I have found great joy in coaching and tutoring. I have worked with students, of all ages, to improve their study habits, writing abilities, reading, songwriting, and acting skills. It is my honor and pleasure to work with you and I look forward to helping you achieve your dreams through private education.

Warm Regards,
Sheldon

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.

Photography

I have been studying photographic techniques for two years now from Peter Hurley, Brandon Espy, Nay Villanueva and various Los Angeles based photographers.

I have made it my primary concern to explain, with accuracy and ease, the inner workings of DSLR's and the effects of lighting, to people who both have experience and those who have never touched a camera.

Equipment:

Nikon D600
Nikkor 50mm 1.4/f
Nikkor 85mm 1.8/f
Tamron 70-200 4-5.6/f

Nikon SB 700 Speed Light

Westcot 26" Rapid Box

2x Paul C. Buff Reflectors

Songwriting

I have been songwriting for 12 years, been awarded for my songwriting, been featured on KEXP, KLED, and Lady Flava Radio several times over the past 5 years and have taught a Seven week course on songwriting through Rec Tech Seattle.

Study Skills

At Western Washington University I served as a academic advisor for the Black Student Union, Latino Student Union and the Fairhaven Stacks. I later continued my work in student development as an academic advisor for the Urban League Scholars at Garfield High School in Seattle, Washington. Currently I serve as an adult and teen acting coach at Barbizon in Los Angeles Center Studios.

Most of my work, aside from imparting technical knowledge, is to create a customized system for disciplined, efficient practice for each student of my students.
