current student at UC Santa Cruz (PhD)
I am currently pursuing a PhD in film studies at University of California, Santa Cruz. In addition to teaching film studies, I have taught writing and history at a collegiate level for over four years. I have taught groups and worked one-on-one with my students to ensure that they grasp the material and can effectively convey their understanding of the content.
I love teaching subjects across the humanities because these subjects encourage us to understand the world around us in deep ways, and to be able to articulate the meaning of the world in a thoughtful and articulate manner. It is incredibly rewarding to see a student make connections about our cultural and social dimensions, whether it be in the realm of language or history.
I excelled in French throughout high school. I still have a strong memory of conjugations and tenses. Je l'aime!
I love reading books and articles. I also love writing essays. To me, language is an irreducible aspect of society that can bring with it great impact. My enthusiasm and passion for English and literature is contagious, and as a PhD who reads and writes quite a bit, I know that my meticulous approach transforms my students' work.
A large amount of my research engages with American and European history. I am continually confronted with these continents' living histories almost daily as I study film and its historical contexts. I also believe that these histories cannot be studied in a vacuum. I know quite a bit about world history as well as the European and American contexts. I am happy to help students in these different fields.
I am currently getting my PhD in film studies. Besides expertise in film history and theory, I also know some about production. I use Final Cut Pro X for editing my own films.

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.
