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.

Business

I have been involved in my own business for 10 years, ArtsHouse, which provides educational media production services to a variety of clients, including manufacturing, public service sectors, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions. I currently develop business strategies and marketing campaigns for my clients including developing e-commerce applications. I am also a partner in EZ Access Card, LLC & CareLock, Inc, which specializes in developing custom debit card programs as an alternative to current financial payment methods. These programs utilize cellphone technology allowing the end-user to completely control their financial accounts, via "ON/OFF" functionality thereby rendering any account that is turned OFF as "dead." I develop all the marketing materials for both of these companies and have been a board member for over 5 years.

Cooking

I have completed a years' worth of cooking classes through William-Sonoma during which I also briefly helped a friend at her Italian Restaurant as a sous chef. I have studied the art of cooking for many years including wine selection. I am currently co-creating a pilot video project on wine-pairing with global varietals of wines and building dishes from all over the US.

Film

My professional career stared in using both Angenieux 16m/m and 35 m/m Arriflex film cameras. I have a wide range of experience shooting with these types of cameras including aerials using Tyler nose and side mounts on helicopters. Originally, all commercial production was using motion film cameras then moving into video production. I have directed and produced 20 years worth of commercials and short educational film/video projects and post-production with both linear and non-linear editing equipment. I also direct voice-over narrative talent and do some audio editing.

Microsoft Outlook

I have used MS Outlook from the beginning. I am currently running 2010 versions of the entire MS Office Suite, including Outlook. I use Outlook on a daily basis and setup many of my clients with this software. I also merge their accounts and connect their "third" party email account into Outlook. I utilize all of the features including calendar and tasks. I taught at a local community college for 7 years.

Photography

I have been producing visual media for over 25 years, including film, video and digital photography. I am well versed in all of the Adobe Production Suite software including Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Audition, Bridge, and Flash. I have taught photography both in the private sector and at community college level. I also produced a full-length motion picture, and prepared many students for regional and international competition in film/video events.

Study Skills

I taught at Fresno City College for 7 years and am currently an adjunct faculty member at Shenandoah University. One of the most important skills that I incorporate into my teach methodology is developing study skills, which is a universal weakness in most students today. Across the entire educational spectrum the two most significant complaints from educators are poor/non-existent study skills and poor/non-existent computer skills, especially in organizing accurate information. I weave these two disciplines into all of my regular class structure, whether script writing, pre-production, production, post-production, graphic design, or developing strategic campaigns through marketing communications, students are required to provide concise, accurate information.

Video Production

I have been producing visual media for over 25 years, including film, video and digital photography. I am well versed in all of the Adobe Production Suite software including After Effects, Audition, Premiere Pro and Apple Final Cut Pro. I taught video production at the community college level for 7 years. I have produced over 100 broadcast TV:30 spots and 80 product "Features & Benefits" productline videos. I also produced a full-length motion picture, and prepared many students for regional and international competition in film/video events.

Web Design

For the past 5 years I have been developing websites for my clients ranging from artistic to public information to e-commerce sites. Currently I maintain 18 different websites all hosted through GoDaddy. I create, develop and maintain these sites on a regular basis. I also constantly am in a learning mode for applying latest best practices in web development.
