I majored in Communication Studies with a minor in Film and Electronic Media. I worked as a professional tutor and media coach at Long Beach City College from 2012-2020. The program I worked in specialized in helping students with their coursework and providing supplemental assignments. We would assist clients with scholarship applications, homework questions, and create study guides to help outline the information. I have a passion for helping students succeed in their schoolwork and understand the importance of finding clear, distinguishable objectives to enhance comprehension of the assignment. I have worked with many liberal arts students and found value in assisting them with questions pertaining to their assignments and learned about the fundamentals of what enhances someone's reading, writing, and public speaking skills.
While tutoring at LBCC I also gained experience working in the video production space in Los Angeles. I worked alongside creative teams as a freelance videographer, video editor, and photographer, creating photo assets, music videos, short form documentaries, and commercials. This experience enhanced my knowledge of the Adobe Creative Cloud which opened up opportunities for me to tutor film, photography, and digital media arts students.
My passion for working with individuals with disabilities started when I was a Special Olympics coach in 2011. This led me to start volunteering with the Disabled Students Program at my college, assisting with taking notes for my peers. The program I eventually started my career in granted me a lot of experience working with individuals with ASD and I feel I developed a strong understanding of how to approach challenges that arose when tutoring in the office or learning in the classroom.

Adobe Lightroom

I have been actively using Lightroom since 2014, and feel passionate about keeping up with current trends and how to utilize the software to its full potential. I believe Lightroom is a great option to organize catalogs, pick selects, adjust color, light, and tones.

I have used the Adobe Suite and Photoshop specifically for over 9 years. I have utilized photoshop in professional settings to adjust exposure, remove objects, touch up skin, and make images pop. While interning for established photographers in Los Angeles I learned the value of accurately processing an image in Photoshop.

Film

While in college, I majored in Communication Studies and Minored in Film & Electronic Media. Throughout that experience, I learned how to write effective essays that dissect a film through the lens of the essay prompt. I found this skill useful since films can be viewed through so many different reference points. After Graduation, I worked in a program where I tutored students majoring in Film and Digital Media Arts, furthering my knowledge of film critique and analysis.

I understand what it takes to see a project from its inception to the final draft, and am fascinated with every step of the process.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Throughout college, I was an in-class aide at the disability program. After that, I worked as an aide and educational coach in a post-secondary program that specialized in assisting students with intellectual disabilities like ADHD and ASD. I value the knowledge I gained in that program as it opened my eyes to how unique and valuable the education experience is to each student.

Skillful, Experienced, Creative Professional and Excellent Tutor!

Sinjin O. taught me the basics of editing portrait photography for professional use. He taught me how to apply a light touch to make photos look professional and attractive to enhance rather than distort authentic characteristics of the subject. He knows how to make the subject look its best while communicating the desired message. Plus he communicates well and made me feel comfortable while I was learning so much.

Angela, 1 lesson with Sinjin

Very knowledgeable, excellent instructor, highly recommended

We went over techniques and how-to's for shots from video clips I want to learn, we also went over possible equipment, and evaluated video work I have already filmed.
