About Alexandra

Ever since I began school at age five, I've loved everything about it. I have a natural desire to learn and an insatiable quest for knowledge. For me, learning is a lifelong goal. My after school hours, weekends and summer vacations were spent reading, tutoring, learning and teaching. In education, I appreciate both the value of learning and the fulfillment of helping others.

Having the opportunity to share subjects I know and love with students who have a genuine desire to learn and improve brings a smile to my face. When teaching, I cater to students' needs in the most efficient and personal way possible. I treat each pupil as the individual they are, while providing encouragement and patience throughout the learning process. Most importantly, teaching and helping others are two things I have a strong passion for, which ensures success on both the teacher and student's behalf.

I studied English and public relations at Westminster College, completing my Bachelor of Arts degree in 2014. In addition to a repertoire of literature and writing classes I was a part of in college, I also served as editor for my college newspaper and yearbook. Additionally, I spent time tutoring children from the local school districts, helping with reading, writing, and grammar homework. In high school, I enrolled in every AP English class offered, so I am familiar with the highest level of high school English curriculum, excelling greatly and winning the "Top Writer" award for my senior class.

Please contact me if your needs fit my areas of expertise. I would love an opportunity to work with you and leave a positive impact on your education. I am happy to accommodate and plan lessons around your schedule. Thanks for visiting!

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.

Film

In college, received a Bachelor of Arts in English, which involved me taking many film classes to engage in critical analysis of both stories and visuals. After graduating in 2014, I moved to Boston and worked BTS photography/props for independent films.
