About Doug

Hello! I am excited about working with your child in the areas of language arts and the creative arts. I am an avid reader and writer and have written many short stories and films - some of these films have been featured in film festivals not only here in Columbus, but also in Colorado, Los Angeles, and South Africa.

Currently I teach an Introduction to Filmmaking course to home school students. This February I'll be adding an Advanced Filmmaking course to my schedule. I am also a Development Executive through the 168 Project, helping writers across the country improve their storytelling skills. I have also taught Sunday School to teenagers at my church and worked as a substitute teacher in the Plymouth-Canton school district in Michigan.

Everyone doesn't learn the same way. My job, as a tutor, is to discover the best way your son or daughter learns. I have twin daughters in the 6th grade - one excels in school and the other struggles. One needs to be challenged beyond the assignment and the other learns best through self-discovery of the material. Seeing them both succeed in their own ways is extremely gratifying.

I don't believe in teaching facts that can just be recited to pass a test. The best way to learn, I believe, is to teach. So, when a student can thoughtfully and confidently teach me (or others) what he or she has just been taught, I know I have succeeded.

What I enjoy most about teaching is making a difference in someone's life. I know that probably sounds cliche and, yes, most vocations yield a product or service that makes some sort of difference. But to experience those "lightbulb moments" - when you see they got it - is something they can build on, over and over again, making them better prepared for the 21st century challenges that lie ahead.

Thanks for reading!

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.

Public Speaking

I work as a public speaker for Bradford School in Columbus, Ohio. I travel to high schools around the state giving life-skills presentations to the students. Not only does this give me the skill set to help others with public speaking, but one of the presentations I give is on public speaking/presentation skills. I am confident in my public speaking skills and can help others develop theirs.

Video Production

I currently working freelance in video production in the Columbus area and part-time with G&P Productions, LLC. This is my fourth year teaching video production to homeschool students in co-ops around Columbus and, starting this fall, I will be teaching at the McConnell Arts Center in Worthington. My curriculum goes from story conception to editing and everything in between: screenplay writing, pre-production, set design, directing, cinematography, lighting, and sound design.
