English (writing, editing, etc.) tutor

Hi! I'm Adam. I like writing, editing and the nitpicky details of predicates and comma splices. I cut my teeth on newspapers and academia. As the Arts Editor for my school paper, I mentored and edited my peers' articles for clarity. I ended up teaching grammar and creative writing to them and found it rewarding to see their writing improve and flower. I went on to be an Editorial Intern for The Signal Tribune. Reading, writing and editing should be fun. I hope to bring out that in others.... [more]

Video Production

I have extensive experience on film sets, both student and non-student. I wrote and directed three short films--two of which did well at festivals--and supervised their entire production, which necessitated a small, low-budget crew. At school, I've DP'd both a narrative and documentary project and played PA and gaffer.


Macintosh

My campus job required helping students and faculty with miscellaneous Mac issues and troubleshooting. I've also been a lifelong user of Macs.


Film

I majored in Film and have made extensive films, both student and non-student. My two most recent films--I was writer and director--found their way into some film festivals. My campus job required teaching editing software to my peers and faculty members. Given that they were student films, I trained some underclassmen in focus pulling and camera operation to receive their help on set.
