About Me

I have almost 6 years of tutoring and over 9 years of adult training experience (with a certificate in adult training). Since middle of 2009 I have been involved with various Vacation Bible Schools, child care programs (at a church), and helping them learn / play sports.

Not only do I have my own business in tutoring / mentoring students and training adults, but I have also worked for two different tutoring companies and have received a part time position as a Youth Services Teacher for my local city to help teach drama, sports, crafts / hobbies, tutor / mentor in various class subjects, etc.

My church organization has its volunteers pass a child safety program called Shield The Vulnerable (which I have passed and have a certificate on file). Also, I have been fingerprinted for tutoring / childcare services and hold a clean background.

With two MBAs, one with an emphasis in health care management, and a BA in Liberal Arts, I am well-versed in study habits, learning new techniques for students with attention disorders (I too have ADHD).

Students love me and enjoy having the "ah ha moments" when I am teaching / mentoring them.

About Me

I graduated from Western Connecticut State University with a Bachelors of Fine Arts specializing in photography. I also have a Masters of Science in middle school education from Mercy College. I have been a NYC public school teacher since 2006. I first fell in love with photography when I was in high school, and have been pursuing it ever since.

My goal when working with students of any age is to make sure they fully comprehend the material being presented to them. I am understanding and flexible. I have been involved in photography since I was in high school and I am knowledgeable in darkroom techniques as well as digital editing.

About Me

Hi there!

My name is Eli Dagostino. Thank you for your interest in my services and expertise!

I am the owner of a successful wedding and portrait photography business on Martha's Vineyard, and I recently moved to NYC to pursue a career in commercial advertising photography. While on Martha's Vineyard I photographed numerous weddings, over 250 portrait sessions, private functions and corporate events both on the island and in New York City, as well as many very successful personal portrait projects.

On top of my own photography adventures, I continue to remotely teach one-on-one photography classes to a large group of very loyal students on Martha's Vineyard. The fall of 2014 will mark my third year co-teaching/assisting famed fine-art photographer Alison Shaw with her two week long intensive photography workshops.

I look forward to both meeting and sharing my skills with new people in NYC who share the same passion for photography as I do.

Smiles, Eli
