Hello!

My name is Alejandro S. and whether it is the Spanish language, photography or film production, my philosophy to tutoring is based on the belief that you will learn effectively if you feel engaged in an exciting and friendly environment that connected to the real-world.

I am a fully bilingual Spanish tutor with a profound understanding of the Spanish language and a passion for teaching. As a native speaker with a degree in Spanish literature, I will help you master the conversational as well as the technical aspects of the Spanish language. Learning a new language should be a fascinating experience. This is why I encourage my students, of all ages, to be adventurous in their learning process. My curriculum lets you go outside the normal classroom setting and into the real world. So if my student is a 5 year old we hunt for colors and shapes in the backyard or the playground; if my student is a teenager we look at nature and decipher poetry; if my student is 18 or older we visit Mexican markets in town and learn humor and localisms by interacting with native speakers. I know from experience that there is no better way to learn structural and conversational language skills than through interaction with the real world. I am here to be your guide as you make Spanish your own.

As a professional photographer and a cinematographer I have brought those teaching principles to this field as well. For over 10 years I have sharpened my craft and worked in the film industry. With a master's degree in film & photography, I bring a unique perspective in order to help you build a real understanding of all aspects of the film or photographic process. In photography as in video production, finding ones' style is possible through a comprehensive approach to learning that combines in-depth technical knowledge with all the artistic principles of the medium. It doesn't matter if you are an experienced filmmaker or someone looking to get started in learning photographic visual media, I am a seasoned filmmaker and photographer that can help you build your skills and help you really think hard about how it is that photography and film connect with the world.

For students that seek tutoring in art and film theory outside of technical training, I offer tutoring in two courses where we cover "Art through Emotion" and "The Humanism of Film". For advanced students I offer tailored tutoring focused in "Exploring Ones Aesthetic Identity" through walking in public spaces. Non-conventional tutoring is an enriching and enlightening experience like none other.

I can't wait to hear about you and get started!

Film

I am a seasoned, professional and cinematographer having worked in feature length films, multiple short films and countless commercial and industrial productions. After my training as a cinematographer at the New York Academy of Film I have developed the experience and knowledge necessary to teach properly the theory and the practice of filmmaking. With a degree in Film theory, I bring extensive knowledge in not just the technical aspects of film but also its' place in the history of artistic human endeavor.
Photography,

Photography

I submerged myself in photography from a very young age. It was photography that essentially steered me in the direction of the visual arts as a profession. Over the last 13 years I have sharpened my skills and invested in gaining a deep understanding of all the aspects of Photography from the technical to the theoretical to the philosophical. Additionally, with a degree in cinematography, one becomes a very well trained still photographer.
Video Production,

Video Production

I have been involved in the film and video production industry for 8 years. I completed my education in cinematography and video production at the New York Academy of Film in 2008. After graduation, I gained invaluable real world experience in all aspects of the video production process working in the film industry. From development to post production, I became proficient in operating a wide range of camera equipment. From DSLR video all the way to high-end digital cinema such as RED and ARRI Alexa, I am an experienced camera operator with a deep understanding of cinematographic and narrative concepts and fundamentals. In addition to my expertise in camera operation, I am a proficient motion graphics animator (After Effects), Designer (Illustrator), Video Editor (Premiere, Final Cut Pro, AVID platform), Color Timing (DaVinci Resolve & Speed-Grade) and I am very knowledgeable in multiple technical post-production workflows learned through the years while working at Adorable Creative, a marketing video production studio in Houston, TX.
