About Karina

I graduated from my Bachelor's degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Resort Management from Northwood University and the Hotel Institute of Montreux in Switzerland, with high marks and experience in business. I continued my studies at Nottingham Trent University in the UK and completed an MA in Broadcast Journalism, with knowledge of communication, video editing, and camerawork. After that, I continued my studies at the University of Sheffield with another MA in Philosophy, the major that became my most favored subject. I hope my students will come to me with questions about the world and be willing to discuss and engage the issues with an open mind.

While I was in Switzerland, I became the secretary to the Student Ambassador's Forum. I became secretary partially because English was my native tongue. Most everyone there knew at least two languages, but English wasn't the main language they spoke. So, I helped many achieve higher grades and a greater appreciation of language through tutoring them by assisting in proofreading and editing their essays and helping them develop better presentations.

If you are interested in having a tutor who has global experience and a wealth of knowledge in various subjects, please don't hesitate to contact me. I am available most afternoons and evenings and I would be happy to travel to your home or tutor online.

I wish you success in your academic studies and beyond!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Business

I have a Bachelor of Business Administration in Hotel, Restaurant and Resort Management. In order to achieve the degree, I had to complete courses in marketing, international economics, statistics, strategy, accounting, events management, just to name a few. I can provide transcripts if necessary.

Cooking

I have a degree in hospitality. I have had some experience working in the kitchen at the Holiday Inn Vancouver's restaurant. I also served at banquets. Throughout my life, I have enjoyed cooking and frequently cooked for my family back in California, nearly every week. I understand the basics of cooking and I try to continue to learn about it.

Film

My MA in Broadcast Journalism was heavily related to film and film production given the extent to which we had to develop news stories (even though they were not fiction), to editing the film in a way that did work like a story. I also had an internship at a small film production company called Happy Accident Films. There, I edited a couple trailers and learned about the overall film making process.

Public Speaking

Throughout my degree at the Hotel Institute of Montreux, I had to do quite a bit of public speaking in the form of presentations. This continued on to the various presentations I did learning to be a presenter during my Broadcast Journalism MA, as well as when I eventually attempted my PhD and had to create a presentation for my thesis. I did not finish that PhD, unfortunately.

Video Production

I have a Master's in Broadcast Journalism. This degree involved using professional cameras, marantz's, Adobe Premiere film editing software, and a knowledge of appropriate camera angles, lighting, aperture, etc. Transcripts can also be provided.
