Bio

In order to truly excel, you need a teacher who sees you as an individual and customizes your education to meet your specific needs. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of private teachers or tutors with the skill, patience, and creativity to work with you at that level of specificity.

That's where I come in. I am a National Merit Scholar and former UNLV professor with 25 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I have an MA in Theatre Arts from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, a BFA...

In order to truly excel, you need a teacher who sees you as an individual and customizes your education to meet your specific needs. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of private teachers or tutors with the skill, patience, and creativity to work with you at that level of specificity.

That's where I come in. I am a National Merit Scholar and former UNLV professor with 25 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I have an MA in Theatre Arts from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, a BFA in Illustration from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and I graduated from one of the top elite private high schools in the country, Punahou School in Honolulu, Hawaii. I work closely with my students to understand their interests, their personalities, and their learning styles, and then create a specific curriculum customized to each student's needs and goals.

Whether you are looking for a tutor to help you prepare for finals or a teacher to build a course for you from the ground up, I will show you what it's like to have a teacher who really cares about how YOU learn.

I offer tutoring for elementary to undergraduate students, and private instruction to homeschoolers and professional children. I instruct across most disciplines in the Humanities, and I specialize in theatre, writing, history and culture. I can create a custom course on any specific historical, cultural or literary topic (i.e. Pre-Columbian Art History, Asian American History and Culture, 19th Century Russian Literature, etc.). If you're not sure, ask! I also offer test prep tutoring for all major standardized testing (SAT, ACT, PSAT, GRE, etc.). I offer private voice lessons and acting coaching at a significantly reduced rate. (Why the reduced rate? Because I don't have to spend as much time preparing classes. Most of the work is done in real time.) I am also available for online instruction.

Performance Qualifications:
I instruct/coach the Stanislavsky method and Meisner technique for acting, the Orff Schulwerk system of elementary music, and the Bel Canto method of singing. I am a former undergraduate professor at UNLV Theatre, and I have professional stage, film, and recording credits. My performance / theatrical resume is available on request.

Academic Qualifications:
My SAT scores in 1997 were 790 Verbal 680 Math, using the old 1600 point system. In December 2013, I took the GREs and scored 168 Verbal 162 Math and 5.5 Writing, with no test preparation.

I have always enjoyed tutoring and teaching, and I have a gift for framing material in a way that is accessible to the specific student I am working with. I am comfortable working with people of all ages, from young children to seniors. I am not intimidated by a challenge, and I find working with special needs persons to be especially rewarding.

Excellent Voice Teacher

Krishna Alexandra is an excellent voice teacher. She is always positive in her approach, arrives promptly and is prepared. Krishna is patient and thorough with her explanations and is also willing to not only listen to my daughter's (age 11) opinions, but she clearly "hears" what she has to say. I would highly recommend Krishna to anyone who is serious about wanting to improve their vocal skills.
