About Emily

My love for teaching originated from being a 4-H leader in the subject of Entomology, or the study of insects. I have since attended film school and worked in Hollywood for several years. I have over 10 years experience navigating different versions of the Final Cut Pro Software + LiveType, as well as Adobe Premiere Pro. Personally, I consider myself a filmmaker as well as a writer and a poet.

I minored in English with a focus on rhetoric and discourse analysis. I have since self-published multiple poetry + photography independent magazines. I would be overjoyed to share any of my skills with folks seeking to learn and/or hone the technical or creative skills of film, literature, and writing. I believe in nothing more than lifelong learning!

I received a perfect score in reading on my SAT and consume a variety of literature daily. I was also a state champion and national qualifier in Public Speaking in The Future Business Leaders of America. In high school I acted as a Teacher's Assistant for the Broadcast Journalism program.

I am a published poet, a speed-reader, and a sesquipedalian with an excellent memory for spelling.

I enjoy meeting new people and discussing topics I love, so do not hesitate to reach out if you think I could help you with any of your artistic or professional goals.

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 studied film consistently for 11 years. It began in high school, where I acted as a Teachers Assistant for our Broadcast Journalism program. I attended one of the highest-rated film schools in the country for undergraduate and have been working in the industry since. My knowledge is both theoretical & practical.

Public Speaking

I was a two-time regional and state champion in the public speaking event as a part of the national Future Business Leaders of America organization. I competed at a national level with an original speech. I have held numerous leadership roles since that involve addressing large audiences as well as studied the english language and the nuances of rhetoric + human communication.

Video Production

Since grade school, I have been producing videos on evolving formats, so I have an extensive knowledge of different equipment and techniques-ranging from consumer level with handheld camcorders to professional, large-budget sets with 40+ people on set and everything in between. Screenwriting, directing, producing and post-production are my specialties.
