Alexandra was great. She's very personable, fun, and also very intuitive; which made the lessons very productive.
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!+ Read More
Alexandra is a true professional, and a lot of fun to work with.
I highly recommend taking lessons with her :)
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!!+ Read More
