About Alexandra

Get to know me! I am an energetic, committed and compassionate tutoring professional, with a love of English, Writing and Grammar. I have 7+ years of experience, working with students of different ages and stages, including elementary-aged, through college.

I am also graduate of the University of Maryland, with an accomplished background in English and Finance. I truly enjoy the subjects of English, Grammar and Writing. I can identify the moment when I fell in love with writing; I was eleven years old and in the sixth grade. I quickly discovered, that writing could provide an outlet of expression and allow me to show my creativity! I love the fact that letters become words, then words will transform into sentences and sentences into a complete thought. These sentences can then be grouped into paragraphs, etc,. This is an example of the positive approach I take with my students to help them discover and joys of English, Writing and Grammar.

I enjoy seeing every student succeed. I also take pride in watching students reach new milestones to achieve their academic goals.

Reach out to me today to schedule. Looking forward to helping you succeed!
