Hi! This is Serena. I have two bachelor degrees in filmmaking and media studies and history from the University of Minnesota. I have been working in digital filmmaking and live studio recording professionally for over 4 years. As of my second history major, my focused area of study is in Europe and I've done multiple research studies in the Middle East. I scored 5 on AP World History, AP European History, and 4 in AP American History. I will make history such an interesting subject for you to learn!
I have been learning Dutch at the University of Minnesota for 4 years and have a Dutch minor degree. I'm also certified in Dutch proficiency through the Department of German, Scandinavian, and Dutch at the University of Minnesota. I've lived in Amsterdam from 2017-2018. I know how to efficiently and systematically teach the Dutch language based on my own experience.
Ballet has been my passion for almost 18 years. I started when I was 3 (now I'm 22), and I only love ballet more and more each day. I was trained in the Vaganova style of ballet (Russian) until I was 14 in Minnesota. When I moved to Ohio for high school, the dance school in my area taught in the Balanchine style of American ballet. When I returned to Minnesota for college in 2015, I started dancing at the Minnesota Dance Theater. I recently moved to Florida and run my own home dance studio.
Hope to see you guys in class!

Serena was a wonderful instructor/tutor to my 12yr old son. He was able to absorb the material easily and retain the lessons learned in order to improve his performance at school. I would definitely recommend Serena if you are serious about learning a specific subject you or your children may be lacking in.Show More
I took a film production history with Serena and to my big surprise the course was quite interesting. I needed help with Film production history so I wont have to retake the class and I'm glad Serena was able to help me. she made the class that was actually dreadful to me to something less challenging. Give her a shot guys you won't regret it. Thanks SerenaShow More
