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.

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!

It's been 3/4 year since we've been with her, and she is absolutely awesome! She totally earned my daughter's respect. Meeting a right teacher is so important because it took some time to correct the bad habit she aquired and continued that her previous teacher let go. Ms. Kan is absolutely one of the best teacher we had so far!
Larry S.
Kan is wonderful!
Elizabeth
Kan seemed very qualified and the first lesson or so went well with the exception of hearing her child cry on and off throughout the lesson and make an appearance on camera as well. We tried to be understanding. Unfortunately we learned she has quite a temper. Our Internet went down and caused problems in our Skype connection. We tried to contact her and Skype said she was unavailable. It took some time to unravel it. When we finally got back in touch with Kan 16 minutes after the lesson started, instead of listening and understanding that we had technical problems, she yelled at us and kept brandishing her phone at the camera to "prove" that she was ready for the lesson. She barely let us get a word in. She very firmly told us we would be paying for the lesson and continued to hold her phone up to the camera. We wanted to just continue the lesson in it's shortened form, but she refused to put her phone down and kept talking over us. Our goal was to remedy the situation; after this, we wanted nothing further to do with Kan. She upset our daughter and that's the end of that. Be warned.

She is also happy to give me time to write down notes for later. Her constructive criticism about hand position, etc. is really helpful, and I know she is paying attention to me!"

"With Masshy as my tutor, I practiced writing and speaking Japanese within the space of one month and a half. I’m one of those people who feel more confident writing than speaking, especially in a language as different from English as Japanese, but Masshy was eagerly helpful, supportive, polite, patient and kind (the list could go on), and we had fun during our casual conversations, conversation games (‘The three-second game’ particularly stood out to me due to all the fun and excitement of getting to its end with as many questions as possible answered in less than three seconds), and even made up a story together. Feel free to ask him any questions, be straightforward about your needs, and he’ll cater to them to the best of his abilities!
