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! {:

Greetings!, Hello!, Hi!, Hey!

I've been teaching English and ESL since 2000 and taught all ages from kids to adults. Two incredible experiences were teaching in Eritrea, E. Africa and Guatemala, C. America. Not only do I enjoy making grammar and conversation accessible to all students, but my goal is to help students to become fluent and obtain the skills to have both professional and social conversations.

Most importantly, I love teaching and helping students get on their own path of "the love of learning"!

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!

As of now I can say I like this program. Takelessons has a good communication with me through email. I really like my teacher. She has a great humor and I like the way she explains everything to me. She is really helpful to me. I have only been with this program for a month and I have no complains.

Alexa is the best instructor ever. She always prepared a lot of good material and topic that I could practice and talk about in English. Her lesson is very helpful to improve your language skill. I highly recommend her.

Alexa is a great teacher! She has taught me all about auditioning and how it works. She brought scripts to practice with each other and gave the class many tips about acting with another actor or alone in front of a camera and casting director. She's also given a lot of advice about how to start a career in acting and is very supportive. It was really fun and her class helped me figure out that I have a passion for acting. It was a remarkable experience!

Alexa is a terrific teacher. She's kind and supportive, yet helps you stretch as an actor. She also incorporates a lot of great information on the business of acting into her classes -- which is so important for creating the career you desire. She encourages you to read, watch, study, practice everything you can in regards to acting. I learned a lot and grew as an actor from her class.

I had the pleasure to work with Alexandra on my English skills for several months. Her professionalism and reliabilities to the task made a big improvement for me. She has the ability to adapt her lessons to your center of interest but also has knowledge in a wide variety of subjects which make her lessons always very interesting.
I would recommend Alexandra to anyone at any level.

Alexa is a fantastic teacher! I'm French and I was essentially looking to improve my conversation skills. 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!

To whom it may concern:

I would like to recommend Alexa Almaz for any teaching experience that she may wish to pursue, as well as any classes that she may wish to teach. I have found her to be an excellent teacher for adults. She knows her subject very well, has materials that are relevant and in support of the lesson that she has planned for the class. Her knowledge of the subject indicates that she has a thorough understanding of the subject matter in addition to personal experience. She is punctual and thoroughly professional.

Alexa demonstrates enthusiasm and concern for each student who is seeking a different or new path. She will be an asset for any position that she may seek to explore

Simply put, Alexa arms you with the knowledge and tools you'll need to get the most out of your auditions. Your odds of getting cast WILL go up.

Alexandra is professional, responsible, reliable and friendly. She is very patient with students and their parents. Only a few months with her helping, my child's writing skills went from a 3- to a 4+, which increased his self-confidence a lot! She usually supplies a variety of teaching materials which attract kids very well. She uses her expert skills to help students express their feelings in thinking and writing. Trust me, Alexa is the best tutor you can have,not only for foreigners, beginners but also for native speakers.

I'm French and I moved in California ten months ago. Alexa is a great teacher because she gave me a methodology and precious tips to improve my level which was stagnant. She adjusts her lessons to your personality and the homework is never boring. She's dynamic, attentive, funny and attaches importance to immerse you in an experience of American culture. With Alexa, you will learn much more than the English langage!

If you're seeking a coach to show you how to learn, and what to do with yourself, Alexa is an excellent resource for the kinds of habits and routines that can transform the way we approach the business of professional acting.

Alexa has a bubbly personality which pulls her students in. She is highly well informed and open to suggestions. She is flexible and seems to be waiting for for and more complex questions. She's really on the ball.
