"I'm Dan! I’m pursuing my PhD in cinema and media studies at USC. I received my M.A. in cinema and media studies and graduated summa cum laude with my B.A. in anthropology, with minors and linguistics and classics.

Currently, I teach at the college level, where I lead sections focused on writing, critical thinking, and analytical skills through and with media like film and television.

Returning to graduate school has reignited my passion for teaching, a passion which was cultivated after years spent in all sorts of educational spaces, which include classrooms, after-school programs, community centers, and summer camps. I have also worked as a lead teacher in after-school programs, where I tutored all subjects for elementary and middle-school aged children, and as a United States history and algebra tutor for 8th grade students at private school. I am also a former supervisor for a summer travel program for teenagers.

My teaching philosophy is simple: teaching is not a one-way process and asking for help is a point of growth, not shame. Part of my role is learning not only to communicate what I know and understand, but to communicate what I know in ways that are relevant to the lives and experiences of my students. To that end, I always look for new teaching strategies and methods that help my students succeed in whatever subject they are pursuing.

Some past student reviews include: "very accessible and enthusiastic," "clear and concise," and "kinda cool."

Feel free to contact me with any additional questions and to schedule a lesson." less...
