About Felipe

Hi, my name is Felipe. I'm a native speaker with more than 10 years of experience teaching in France and Belgium. I'm bilingual French-Spanish and I'm able to teach in an effective and enjoyable way these two languages.

I have 2 diplomas in Cinema Studies and I worked several years in the European cinema industry principally as a documentary filmmaker. I also worked in primary/secondary schools teaching cinema and video skills.

I recently arrived in LA and I'm looking for new students. Do you want to discover a new language? Improve your general or your speaking-listening or reading-writing proficiency? Do you need tutoring for your children? Or are you simply looking for conversation sessions? I can certainly help you.

Hope to meet you soon!

¡Hasta Pronto!
à bientôt!

Felipe

I have always loved teaching! See my students improve their skills and their self confidence really matters to me. I've been teaching/tutoring languages for more than 10 years for groups and individual classes. I have experience with kids and adults of every level.

I have 2 diplomas in Cinema Studies and I worked several years in production, post-production, direction and techniques for documentary, short and feature films. I directed many short documentaries and directed and produced integrally my last documentary film which is currently being screened in cinema festivals.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if you want to talk with my references who can tell you about my classes ;)

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

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.

Film

In 2009, I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Cinema Studies from the HELB- PRIGOGINE in Brussels. I had the 7th place of 55 students who received their diploma. In 2015 I completed a post-bachelor diploma in Audiovisual Production at the IAD Institute of Arts in Louvain-la-Neuve in Belgium.
I've worked for the cinema industry for 6 years as: producer, assistant producer, post-production supervisor/assistant, cameraman, editor, technical video and sound support, scriptwriter and documentary film director. principally at Hélicotronc, Cookies Films, Cinematek, Ultime Razzia Productions.
I taught cinema and video skills for primary and secondary schools during 2 years. Classes were theoretical and practical. The purpose was that children do a short film by themselves.

Video Production

After my studies in Cinema, I worked for almost 3 years in a non profit association for the project "Mémoire Vive" in Brussels, as a documentary film director. I was also the person in charge of the video equipment (video cameras, editing computers, sound recorders, microphones, etc.)
My mission was to direct documentaries focused on elderly people and to prepare all the technical support from the preparation to the post-production.
I was also in charge of the editing of these short documentaries. I had the opportunity to teach a lot about video skills to trainees that we had in our association.

Well prepared and knowledgeable!

Felipe is one of the most well prepared tutors I have had lessons with, he conducts an assessment of your skills and goes from there. He will bring you homework to work through yet works just well off any homework you may have. He speaks often if not mostly in the target language explaining what he's saying as needed. (huge problem with most language tutors is they try to teach the language witho
