Film scholar, with concentrations in history, aesthetics, academic/critical writing, and analysis, offering online support

Methodology

I treat each lesson differently, approaching any assignment uniquely and comprehensively. Whether it be an scholarly work, school essay, academic research paper, or presentation, I strive to engage according to the circumstances (i.e. format, due date, topic) as well as the tutee's individual strengths and interests.

Background

I am a film scholar, with a Bachelor's Degree in Film Studies, with a concentration in the relationship between history and visual culture. Possessing experience in editing of scholarly journals as well as symposium presentations and lectures, I also run a personal film criticism site.
