What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I have efficient technique to access student level and map out student goal with clarity in order to aim for a goal. I had taught classes at college level in Long Beach, San Jose State University and other area where students interest and background were diverse. Address student with care and appropriate pace to each individual differently to cultural diversity, age, skill. Bring appropriate material in print or equipment to demonstrate to find out what the student wants or when student got confused on the subject. Encourage student to have confident to achieve goal like fabulous role models on the topic.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have earned a Master of Art in California. My excellent achievement in Undergrad was from UCLA by formal trainnings. However, I earned first hand unique experiences working Hollywood top level productions in Print and moved forward to NYC and also sought out to learn further in London, pan-Europe and traveled to Asia's hot spot with field interests. My technical and conceptual update have been constant, driven by passion.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I take the median fee at $49 per hour and 2 hours per lesson to make my 12 miles radius travel worthwhile. You may take a test water lesson for 1 hr but you need to come to meet me in Sunnyvale library ground or my studio near there. 

How did you get started teaching?

In restrospect, I realized I had became an instructor early on by necessity and learned from my shortcomings early on as the eldest brother of 4 siblings household. As a goodwill ambassador I volunteered to tutor Middle school kids in college after being solicited for my academic acheivements. I also love great speakers, studied them for years and years and naturally enjoy delivering dynamic lecture on topic I am passionate about, so it was a natural process to earn a Master degree to teach after a decade of working for legends in L.A and NYC in photo shoots

What types of students have you worked with?

Few disable, variety of heritages. Some professionals in Finance fields and Engineers where I had to explain with clarity and address inquisitive questions to satisfactions

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The Pandemic forced me into Canvas teaching and using Zoom. As a studio photographer for the most part of my life I couldn't stand the boring pale fish face webcam widely provide even from my top of the line Macs. I went on to play with cinematic look online. Even now, I did not want to invest to optimize the look that I know I can. I am not willing yet to put my 15K camera to use as webcam yet but my video cam, HDMI external card and little lighting made it a lot better already. I enjoy story tellings of my adventures some are tragic and strange by circumstances, but it made me a fuller person now even then I didn't like it.
