About Alexandra

I have been teaching for the past eight years and have a real passion for teaching English and Spanish. I have lived abroad for most of my life (in Mexico) and taught English in private schools in several cities throughout Mexico. I have worked with children ages 4 thru 40 and enjoy all ages. I have also worked in all settings ranging from one on one tutoring to 40 students in a classroom. I am fluent in Spanish and English.

My specialty is teaching English as a second language, but I also enjoy teaching Spanish,History, Geography and I love Grammar. I am friendly and easygoing and believe in making my classes fun and enjoyable. I want my students to enjoy my classes and look forward to them. I strongly believe that learning should be fun!!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I am Mexican-American (my parents are American but I was born in Mexico)and lived in Mexico for many, many years before moving to the Chicago area recently. I am fluent in Spanish and English and have been teaching ESL since I was 18. I have taught ESL in a variety of settings and to students of all ages. I make grammar understandable to the English language learner and help my students transform their acquired knowledge into real, practical conversations.

I enjoy working one on one and in groups and believe that learning should be fun. My classes are easygoing and my students learn through a wide range of teaching techniques.

Spanish

I was born in Mexico 40 years ago to two American parents. I lived in Mexico for 37 years before moving to the Chicago area 3 years ago, so I have been bilingual all my life. However, speaking a language does not mean that you can automatically be a teacher. Teaching a language requires a deep understanding of the way a language works. Understanding all of the nuances in Spanish is particularly challenging. I have developed this understanding over the past decade and have a simple and straightforward way of explaining it to my students. I truly enjoy teaching and can help any student acquire better language skills.
