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

I have been a filmmaker for 35 years, starting out shooting and editing 16mm film, working in videotape, and now fully at ease in the digital realm. I am a director, producer, cameraman, and editor. I also have a detailed knowledge of world cinema, and the history of film.

Photography

I have concentrated on motion photography in my career, but I am also proficient in still photography. I printed photos in a darkroom in my younger days. I am familiar with the latest digital photography cameras and techniques.

Video Production

I have been a video producer with work on PBS, National Geographic, and Discovery for the last 25 years. I have focused on documentaries, but also done music videos, and I was director of photography on one feature film. For the last 10 years, my work has concentrated on videos for non-profits and various good causes.
