Take lessons with a native Spanish speaker! I have experience working with children and adults from beginner up to advanced levels. I specialize in grammatical and technical classes as well as conversational ones. I tend to follow a rather communicative teaching approach, motivating students to interact in real situations.

There’s nothing like the feeling of a good class, a class that was enjoyed by the teacher and the students, so I always try to create a bond between students so that classes are more customized. It also helps to develop confidence and promotes the use of Spanish in the class. It doesn’t matter the topic and the focus of the lesson, humor, laughter and little jokes are a must in all classes to break the ice and to make the class more pleasant.

I can't wait to get started!

I took lessons with Carolina for 3 advanced Spanish classes and I can honestly say she is the best tutor that I have had! She explained material in the best ways, and made the material easy to understand. I even shockingly developed an interest in Spanish outside the classroom. Carolina was very understanding of the level of understanding that I had, and I never had to tell her when I needed more explanation for coursework. She would always know based on the way I responded to the material. Definitely take a class with Carolina! Oh, and I got A's in all three Spanish classes.

Fantastico! Carolina is muy friendly and easy to understand. I’m looking forward to many more lessons!

I have experience teaching and working with children as well as with adults. I feel comfortable teaching students in all different levels, from the beginner up to the advanced level. The typical approach that I use is a rather communicative one. I like to encourage students to speak and get engaged in real life situations.

I like to know my students, who you are and what your interests are so that I am not just your teacher, but also a friend. I like to think that I am a humorous person and it always makes me feel great when we can share a laugh or two in the class.

Come and join me!

Alex is the best accent reduction/English teacher I've ever met.

I have tried to find private English tutors at least five times for over the last ten years. The previous experiences weren't great. All the previous teachers tried to teach me ways to pronounce phonemes and syllables, such as sit vs. seat. I didn't get a lot from those tutoring and none of those lasted more than one or two months.

I have been tutored by Alex for more than six months and expect to stick with her as a teacher for long time. I was a little doubtful during the first class when she customerized my need by letting me read a paragraph from a novel. It turned out to be the right way for me to train my English accent, as the right accent is not only about correctly pronounce each phoneme, it is actually for the purpose of conveying the meaning and emotion to listeners.

Alex is very well prepared for each lesson. She sent me all kinds of materials for me to reduce accent. Some are various formats of reading materils; others are details about how to form mouth/tongue positions for different vowels/consanants.

She has golden ears and can find out what is missing after I read a paragraph to her and then can focus on the area that I need improvement on.

It's been a great experience to study with Alex. I recommend her to everyone who need accent reduction.
Halyna M.
My lesson went great! Alexandra understood the concept that she should adapt to me. She provides excellent, clear answers and offered additional helpful information with the whole process of learning. I'm thrilled that she customizes my needs accordingly.
Also she has a great personality.
