Teaching ESL for several years now I've learned (as a teacher) that learning another language should not be boring but it does take time and daily practice. So, I like to focus on the student's specific needs and interests not to everyone! {:

Alexandra is an excellent instructor. She has a great friendly style with people of all ages and actors of all experience levels. Alexandra is very detailed oriented. This is beneficial to actors in that she makes sure you all are breaking down the script and asking all the right questions regarding the text, your role, and your scene partner's role. I feel you will learn a lot with Alexandra, as I did, and enjoy your time with her.

Great instructor! I felt very comfortable working with her.

I am very happy to have met Alexa during my stay in Los Angeles. Her classes were excellent as well as her methodology. She helped me a lot to improve my English skills and suggested me a lot of books, apps, podcasts and other support tools.
I really recommend her as an ESL teacher!

I've taught ESL to many students, varying from people who could barely say "hello" to those who were just trying to get the past perfect continuous tense right. I love it.

A very good first lesson. We went over breathing exercises and scales. Also had time for Amy to critique my speaking style through a portion of a speech I will be giving in a month. Time well-spent.

She briefly went over the next lesson plan and gave me a little homework to do as well.

I got a lot out of this lesson and I can see how this will help me accomplish my goal of being a better public speaker and having a more controlled and stronger voice.

Looking forward to future lessons.

Amy is absolutely incredible. She showed keen interest in my concerns and challenges. She listened and knew exactly what I needed to do to get to where I want to be. She makes it easy for me to understand and she is truly a great coach. I can’t wait to see her again.

I feel I've made a lot of progress thanks to her ability to guide the conversation, making sure to correct my grammar and enrich my vocabulary at the same time. I also loved the topics she carefully chose in order to give me some insights of the American culture. Thank you again Alexa!"
