About Alexandra

I am a literacy specialist with more than 10 years of professional teaching experience. I believe that is important to take an individualized approach to meeting the needs of students. I use this approach in my classroom and in tutoring situations. The individualized approach to instruction begins with a diagnostic assessment in order to identify specific areas that need to be focused on during instruction. Smaller assessments as instruction continues is is a great way for the student to experience success as they reach their academic goals.

I have experienced much success using this individualized approach to instruction. I have realized that my students are more successful when they are informed about their needs and the steps that will be taken in order to ensure that they are successful. I have worked with struggling readers and writers for a large portion of my career. I have been able to make gains with these students on a consistent basis. I look forward to working with your student to help his or her achieve her educational goals.

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.

I have taught grades 5-8 for 10 years in a variety of educational settings. I am a certified literacy specialist for grades 5-12.
