Hello! My name is Sinjin. I specialize in Study Skills, Communication, English, Film and the Adobe Suite. 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.

Hello! My name is Sinjin. I specialize in Study Skills, Communication, English, Film and the Adobe Suite. 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 for would assign educational coaches to help assist clients with scholarship applications, homework questions, and create study guides to help outline the information in their courses. I have a passion for helping students succeed in their schoolwork and understand the importance of finding clear, distinguishable study objectives to enhance comprehension of assignments. Working one on one with students helped me learn about the fundamentals of what enhances someone's reading, writing, and public speaking skills.
While tutoring, I also gained experience working in the video production space in Los Angeles. I worked alongside creative teams as a freelance videographer, 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 swim coach in 2011. This led me to start volunteering with the Disabled Students Program at my college, assisting with taking notes for my peers during our lectures, eventually landing me a job in the disability accommodations office. The specialized program I eventually started my career in granted me a lot of experience working with individuals with ASD & ADHD, and I developed a strong understanding of how to approach the unique challenges that arose when tutoring in the office or assisting the client in their classroom.
Thank you for reviewing my profile. Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions or would like to schedule a lesson.

Subjects

Art

Adobe Lightroom,

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 for photographers looking to organize catalogs, pick selects, adjust color, light, and skin tones.
Adobe Photoshop,

Adobe Photoshop

I have used the Adobe Suite and Photoshop specifically for over 7 years. I have utilized photoshop in professional settings to adjust exposure, remove objects, touch up skin, and make subjects stand out. While interning for established photographers in Los Angeles, I learned the value of accurately processing an image in Adobe.
Film,

Film

While in college, I majored in Communication Studies and 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 perspectives, depending on what the course is exploring that week. After Graduation, I worked in a program where I coached students majoring in Film and Digital Media Arts, furthering my knowledge of film critique and analysis, being exposed to academic essays covering hundreds of different films and film genres. Throughout that time I also was able to work on short narrative films and documentaries, getting to see and help develop projects from pre-production through post production. This experience helped me learn about script writing, scene blocking, sound editing, and motion graphics.
Photography,

Photography

I have studied photography since high school, finding immense enjoyment in developing photos in the dark room. Since then, I have taken college level digital photography courses, interned for two prominent photographers in Los Angeles, and have been hired for professional photoshoots and ad campaigns. I am passionate about keeping up with the consistently evolving world of digital media and mirrorless cameras.
Video Production

Video Production

I have actively worked with clients in the film and photography production space since 2014. I have taken courses in Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects and actively use the software to produce high-quality videos and stills. 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.

Business

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

While in college I majored in Communication Studies with an emphasis on rhetoric and public speaking. Throughout my career, I have lead monthly and annual celebrations and award ceremonies at Long Beach City College, which required public speaking and event preparation. I see the value in practicing and rehearsing speeches and being prepared for presentations, interviews, and group contributions.

ADHD

While working at the disabilities accommodation office at Long Beach City College, I gained exposure to working with and assisting individuals with ADHD. I later advanced my knowledge in this category of tutoring by working at a day program where I got one on one experience assisting individuals with ADHD in our office and in their classroom.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD),

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Throughout college, I was an in-class assistant, notetaker, and front desk assistant at the disability accommodations office on campus. After that, I worked as an educational coach & tutor in a post-secondary program that specialized in assisting individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder through the Harbor Regional Center/Disabilities Programs and Services. That experience granted me opportunities to work alongside individuals on the spectrum as the competed in regional film competitions. I value the knowledge I gained in those programs, as it opened my eyes to how unique and fulfilling the education experience was to each student. Working in that post-secondary specialized program gave me the opportunity to work one on one with individuals with autism for 10+ Years.

Fellowships, Scholarships, and Career Documents

During the first few minutes of my session with Sinjin, I knew he was the perfect match. Sinjin is an authentic, empathetic, and brilliant tutor. He has helped me advance my resume, complete applications, email academic professionals for recommendations, and produce an academic summary and personal statement. Before meeting Sinjin, I was extremely overwhelmed and doubtful that I could manage and accomplish everything required for a fellowship. After several sessions with Sinjin and his constant reassurance and kindness, I am confident I can achieve my goals. I am excited to continue working with Sinjin. Thank you, Sinjin! I am forever grateful! :)

Kind, knowledgeable & Efficient Teacher with Adobe Premiere Pro

Sinjin is helping me learn Adobe Premiere Pro. He is very efficient, patient, kind, and very knowledgeable. You can tell that he enjoys teaching and helping people. I am not very technical but he has been very easy to talk to. I learned a lot about how to make better videos in just 2 sessions. I know he has more to teach me so I will continue on with our lessons. Thanks Sinjin!

Extremely helpful! Time and money well-spent!

My son went into the tutoring session after being stuck on the same problem area in Premier Pro for a couple days. One session with Sinjin and problem was resolved! He also learned so many trouble-shooting skills along the way that will definitely help him down the road too. We will be scheduling with Sinjin again, for both learning and problem-solving. Can’t recommend him enough!
