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.

CBEST

Hi, I took the CBEST a few years ago and used it to register as an substitute teacher instructor in the Oakland Unified Schools. I no longer work or live in Oakland. I have passing scores in all subject areas.

Film

I got my MFA in film production from UCLA and have and frequently implement a "film camp" for middle school and secondary aged students.

Video Production

I frequently have video production workshops where I teach kids how to make short films and videos. They explore all three phases of production with me from pre-production to post production.
