Alexandra is the "cat's pajamas." She started working with my daughter Molly as a tutor in English when Molly was preparing for her CASHEE. This was not easy as Molly has learning issues (dyslexia, ADHD). Although state rules would have exempted Molly, she wanted to pass the exam and graduate the same way as her classmates. But she had already come up short twice. After 2 months of working with Alexandra once a week, Molly passed the exam with points to spare. Since then, being gifted in so many ways, Alexandra has stepped in twice as a personal coach. She helped Molly go through want ads and prepare for interviews, with the result that Molly got her first job which she has now help for almost a year. She also gave Molly help setting up her account in LA Casting and in looking through and responding to auditions notices. So, while I checked "English" as the 'subject' of this review, given the option 'Other' I would have filled in: Life Coach, Improv, Acting, and Job search and Prep. Alexandra seems to do it all. Immensely talented. Thanks!

Wonderful teacher! I've had a rough time with my voice in many aspects of my life, including teaching yoga, and Alexandra helps me so much! She will actually get up and do yoga to ensure that I am communicating effectively, in a timely matter, and that my pronunciation is spot on. She has so many ideas and exercises and is very passionate about what she does and helping others!!

Debbie K.

Burbank, CA

I am a dance choreographer and would love to choreograph something original and unique for you. I have over 20 years of dance experience from ballet to tap to contemporary and hip hop. I believe that the best dancing happens when heart meets body. So we will work on connecting to the piece as well as technique.

About Debbie

Tutoring has been a major part of my life for over 7 years and I love it. Seeing the excitement in a student's eyes when they finally get something they've struggled with is why I do what I do. My strength is in getting to know the way a student learns best and finding techniques that support that style and help the student grow.

I have experience working with mild autism and have multiple references if interested.

About Lindsay

Hey there! I have a background in dance and have always been drawn to an active lifestyle. I love kids and have been working as a nanny professionally for 4 years. Putting two of my favorite things together (dance+kids) I thought what's better than being a dance teacher?!
I grew up dancing at Mark Spivaks Institute in Jacksonville, Florida. Where I had aspirations of becoming a ballerina. I took every dance genre from jazz to character to pointe. I love yoga, hiking, art, and being a big sister! I look forward to meeting you and your kids.
