I have a passion for the English language and can help you sharpen and expand your skills, whether you're a beginner, English is your second language, or you're preparing for college entrance exams. I am also an actor and can help you express yourself. I am smart and funny and very patient. I've tutored second graders and adults, taught acting classes in Hollywood and Honolulu, and had my own writing work published and produced.

Excellent English Tutor for Immigrant Families

We are an immigrant family from Taiwan. Although our son was doing reasonably well in the school, we have been concerned on how to further improve his language and writing skill, especially on the topics related to humanity, art and western history (the topic my wife and I were not quite familiar due to our foreign education background). Alexandra’s participation as our son’s English tutor has completely eased our concerns. Through her mentoring, our son was able to gain a broader access to a wide spectrum of reading materials. I also witness that the content of my son’ writing has gradually broadened. I am delighted to wittiness my son's improvement in English and would like to convey my greatest appreciation to Alexandra's help over the past year.

Excellent English Tutor

As my tutor, Alexandra helped me proofread and edit my essay. She was able to find my writing problems easily and explain to me how these problems could be fixed. Alexandra is knowledgeable, punctual and easily approachable. She will definitely help you improve your English significantly.
