Hi! My name is Serena and I'm a graduate from the University of Minnesota. I have two bachelor degrees in filmmaking and history plus a minor in Dutch. I have been working with film and media productions basically every day in the past four years and I'm very familiar with the Adobe Creative Suite including Photoshop, Premiere Pro, and Lightroom. I can help you master video and photo editing skills in the most effective ways!

For history, my main focused area of studies is in Europe; however, I have also done multiple research projects in the Middle East. I have always been fascinated by history and its importance and that's why I chose to study history in college. If you are a person who's also a history lover, I will give you some more insightful knowledge about historical perspectives and if you are having a hard time studying history for school, I guarantee I will make history interesting and fun for you!

I've also been a ballet dancer for almost 19 years (started at 3, now I'm 22). I can offer you good corrections and tips for your upcoming performance. I've been dancing at Minnesota Dance Theater for about 6 years and now I run my own home dance studio in Florida. If you are a ballet lover who is looking to get started on dancing, I have detailedly planned courses for you to lead you into the magical ballet world step by step.

I've also been studying guitar at the University of Minnesota professionally for about three years. (Although I'm not a music major, I took professional classes.)

I have a Dutch minor from the University of Minnesota. I have Dutch proficiency certified from the University of Minnesota Department of German, Scandinavia, and Dutch.

As a recent graduate, I'll teach you based on my personal experience in how to make learning fun and worth the time! You won't be disappointed!

Thorough and helpful

Serena took the time to help me understand the basics of my film analytical essay writing. I was a bit confused on how to address it but not so much anymore.
