About Sophia

When I was 9 years old, my mom arrange for a tutor. Our next door neighbor, my tutor was an amazingly sweet lady. She made a subject that I dreaded to study fun and the hour we spent together went by so quickly. She made a difference in my life that is irreplaceable. And I want to do the same for you.

My specialization is English (writing, reading and vocabulary) and Video Production for ages 6-12. As a writer and video blogger, I use these two subjects as daily tools to connect with my audience and help make a change. As a tutor, I will make learning fun but also fascinating. I believe that any subject can be mastered with just a little smart guidance from someone who loves the subject. And when you are enjoying the process, you will also learn in a lasting way. I use stories and multi-media as much as I can to make each session effective so that you achieve success in your goals.

My desire to help young students have the experience of success is what drives me to be a tutor. Besides, I have been a student of English all my life and I read in every spare moment I can find or write to refine my skills. I love learning and I want to share that passion and fascination with the younger generations.

When I went to film school at NYU, I realized that the main purpose of a film is to tell a story that captures the imagination. It is a tool that has no limits both in the creativity of the filmmakers and in the impact it can have on the viewer. It can change someone's life for the better and spur a movement of positive change. I have created a 22 minute documentary on Northern Indian ancient architecture. And in the last few years, I have made dozens of short films on youtube on mindfulness, cultivating happiness and mental focus as well as visualization techniques.

I am confident our work together will give you massive results, because I will ask you to take massive action. If you are not satisfied, there will be no charge for the session. That is my 100 % risk-free guarantee.

Life can be busy and things can change. So if you cancel before 24 hours of our appointed time, there will be no fee.

I tutor from in my home (kind of a tree house because it is an upstairs condo) in Candler, NC which is a peaceful place to study and work. Alternatively, I can meet in a quiet cafe or travel to a location we agree upon.

Connect with me so we can begin our learning journey and you can experience the results of your extra efforts. I am eager to hear from you.

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 a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film and Television from New York University. My thesis film was a 22 minute documentary on ancient architecture of Northern India. I have worked with 16mm film and edited manually on a Steinbeck Editing table. Today, I work with iMovie and Garageband for editing video and sound. Over the last three years, I have created over 50 short videos on YouTube on the subject of mindfulness, cultivating happiness and mental focus and visualization.
