I have a student-centered teaching approach. I believe that students learn by trial and error and through this process they need the guidance of a teacher who can support them while they work to achieve their educational or academic goals.
I have a bachelor degree in Justice and Law, a graduate certificate in Arts Management, and I am in the process of earning a master degree in Film. I also know three languages. My academic background has enabled me to master the writing, reading, and speaking skills and I am eager to teach these skills to students who might need help in learning a new language or perfecting their reading or writing comprehension skills.
I am currently a graduate student at American University attending the MFA program in Film and Media Arts. I have experience interning at talent agencies, production companies and in the legal field. I have creative and analytical writing skills, talent and brand management skills, and strong knowledge of legal processes and office management procedures.

1. Mulholland Drive as a Representation of Camilla’s Dream and Regret
In this paper, I want to demonstrate by using Lacan’s theory of mirror stage and other concepts crucial to his psychoanalytic theory such as the imaginary, the symbolic order, the Real, the Other, and object petit a, to demonstrate that the first two thirds of Mulholland Drive is Camilla’s dream after Diane’s suicide which occurs in the second part of the movie.
2. Strangers in Reality: An Analysis of Jim Jarmusch’s Filmography Using Baudrillard’s Theories of the Media
In this paper I want to demonstrate by focusing on an analysis of Jarmusch’s main works and his style such as minimal plot, fascination with otherness, miscommunication and language barriers that Jarmusch’s movies are able to capture the crude and unpolished realness of everyday life and of human interactions in a way that is free and undecorated from the conventions that Baudrillard and Foucault assert that conceal the real by creating profound cinematic works that their main goal is not only to entertain but to deeply impact and force the viewers to face the truth of their everyday life as well as the beauty of simple particles of their existence.
3. The American Dream in The O.C and Veronica Mars: A Myth or a Reality?
The way the American Dream is portrayed in two tv series, Veronica Mars and the O.C., points to the fact that the American Dream according to Holtzman’s definition, even though it might exist only as a concept in reality, it is not attainable but is reserved to a small privileged upper middle-class group who holds the keys to an idealized version of the American Dream.
4. Complex TV as Quality TV: An analysis of Breaking Bad and other Narratively Complex Tv Series
In this paper, I have used the example of the acclaimed television series Breaking Bad and compared it with other successful narratively complex tv series with episodes airing post 2010 to demonstrate that Breaking Bad with its anti-hero protagonist, gradual transformation of the main character, and its storytelling devices such as cold opens and flashbacks is a narrative complex tv series that can also be considered quality television because it creates a more engaged audience which is intellectually and emotionally challenged by the unexpected events in the narrative.
5. Beauty as Happiness: The Quest of the Characters in American Beauty towards Happiness
In this paper, I have purported to give a new interpretation of the movie American Beauty by using Nietzche and Freud’s ideas on happiness and becoming one’s self as well as by analyzing the movie’s directorial style to demonstrate that one meaning of the movie can be the quest of the main protagonist, Lester, as well as of the other characters, to achieve their versions of happiness in their lives by breaking down the conventions of the modern society which have blinded the characters from the transcendental and small particles of their existence that contain the beauty in their life and thus the meaning of their existence.
6. Netlix’s Dilemma: Is Television’s Audience Free When Watching Netflix?
Netflix has had a dual effect on the television audience because it appears that the television audience has more control and more freedom to choose but at the same time it has restricted the viewers’ choices by offering to them selections that are similar to what they seen before and eliminates the sharedness that the watching experience entails. Moreover, this effect of restricting the viewers’ choices that Netflix has can be more pronounced for an international audience watching television through the binge-watch model because it makes them less active by offering to them productions which are inside their comfort zone in terms of their cultural and societal background.
