About Faith

Hello!

I'm Faith. I earned my English B.A. from the University of Florida in December 2015, Cum Laude with a 3.85 GPA. I minored in Anthropology and have a general interest in storytelling, history, and performance. I believe that education holds an unparalleled, transformative power, thus I have plans to complete an M.A.T in English grades 6-12 within the coming years. I am also a published poet, an author, and a screenwriter. My research essay, "In the Nursery," wherein I discuss the metaphorical value of Roman Polanski's 1968 film Rosemary's Baby, was recently published in UF's Journal of Undergraduate Research. I focused my undergraduate studies within film studies, Victorian Literature, Children's Literature, and unconventional mediums (comics, graphic novels, animations). I successfully completed a large chunk of my high school career through Florida Virtual School and intend to encourage and enlighten future students as a virtual school teacher.

I have assisted fellow college students with proofreading and essay construction and have had the pleasure of tutoring elementary-aged children as a part of Key Club Community Service. I have a patient and enthusiastic approach to teaching and enjoy problem solving. I feel compelled to help others reach their fullest potential within my hobby subjects. I believe in charts and visual learning and I will likely offer my 'students' hard copies of pertinent information.

I take pleasure in connecting abstract ideas, dissecting literature to find each work's greater significance, and luxuriating in the complexity of the English language.

I am thrilled for the opportunity to assist you in your endeavors.


My interpersonal skills and interest in bettering others combined with my thorough understanding and admiration of the English language and literature will offer you the best learning environment.

Please contact me with inquiries.

I eagerly await your contact!

Warmly,
Faith S.

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.

English

I have an English degree from UF and have a vast understanding of literature, writing, and the English language. I graduated with honors.

Film

In addition to screenwriting, producing, and directing multiple short and extended length film works, I completed the University of Florida's English B.A. film track. My knowledge spans the entirety of film history in addition to the sociopolitical and cultural themes that often occur within the medium. I have a working knowledge of modern script formatting and know much about film innovators, writers, directors, and actors.
