About Dominick

My families' roots lie deep in education, both my parents are retired teachers. I spent a great deal of my life in and outside the classroom engaged in educational activities. As I entered college, I spent a great deal in workshops in arts and communications. The camera and computer have also become an extension to my creativity. Through my participation in educational workshops, I have also been able to conduct and lead workshops in Media and Design Arts.

Currently I specialize in Multimedia Arts such as Video Editing, Photoshop and Graphic Design. At the moment I hold a part time position as a Contracted Instructor in teaching Film and Media Skills at a local adult school.

As a Video Editor for the last 7 years I have worked with organizations and private industries producing Video content. My strengths in Video production lie in Editing and Camera Work. Although I typically work by self as an dependent contractor for Videography and Editing, I am no stranger to teaching collaboration skills.

For the last 12 years I have had the privilege to work at UC Davis, ACSA, CSUS, SCUSD, United Auburn Indian Community, Futures Explored as a design assistant or assistant instructor. I am familiar with many personalities of creative students and have helped students become successful in their choice of career.

I aim comfortable asking for feedback about my work with students. I will do my best to strengthen a students skill set, I will not bill a lesson in which the student or parent is not satisfied with my tutoring.

I will be flexible with my time. I would like to have a 24 hour notification if the class needs to be cancelled.
I don't mind having to travel to a student's home to teach any computer related lesson. However, I am happy to find or coordinate a safe location (with the parent's permission) for any tutoring service.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies
