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.

Fitness

I currently run a boxing fitness program for people with Parkinson's that's been scientifically shown to slow or regress symptoms. I achieve success for my clients by using basics from the NASM-CPT program, in conjunction with Parkinson's-specific and neuroscience-based training principles.

I continually educate myself, via workshops with fitness industry leaders and training programs on cutting-edge trends in fitness and nutrition, including high-intensity training, body-weight exercises, functional fitness, TRX and more.

My own training in disciplines ranging from snowboarding to bouldering, martial arts, tango and yoga has given me hands-on knowledge about body mechanics and how cross-training in one sport can impact another: This experience is definitely beneficial in developing programs for students that engage them and meet their fitness goals.

I have experience running outdoor bootcamps focused on bodyweight and high-intensity training as well as strength and cardio training in a gym environment, using machines, free weights, balance and stabilization equipment.

Beyond my fitness training, I have been educating myself about how nutrition can impact health and fat loss, via studying for my Precision Nutrition certification and exploring the work of Metabolic Effect and Dr. Sara Gottfried to learn how hormonal shifts caused by diet and lifestyle impact fat loss.

Marketing

I have managed marketing tasks ranging from content strategy to copywriting, social media, email campaigns and photography for major players – Microsoft, Amazon, Eddie Bauer, REI – and smaller niche firms. I specialize in online media, e-commerce, health, fitness and action sports. My skillset also includes software tools used in these types of projects, including Sitecore, SharePoint, Sprinklr and others.

Photography

I create action, adventure and lifestyle images for advertising and editorial clients worldwide.

My talents include capturing photos in the studio and on location; working with strobes and natural light; scouting locations; and managing all post-production with Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop to finalize photos for submission to clients. I am willing to work with students to teach them any or all of these subjects, plus photo-specific business information.

I have also worked as a photo mentor with Youth in Focus, teaching technical topics and the development of each student’s unique creative vision, and as a photo lab monitor at Photographic Center Northwest, coaching users of the space in traditional darkroom techniques.

My training includes a BA in Fine Arts from the University of Oregon, plus continuing education at Photo Plus, Santa Fe Workshops and Photographic Center Northwest.

Proofreading

I have worked with top-level firms including Microsoft, REI, Eddie Bauer and the Seattle Times in writing, editing and proofreading capacities. I have worked with AP, Chicago and corporate style guides. I have also proofed for design elements.
