About Alexandra

My name is Alexandra. I graduated in 2011 with my Master’s in Elementary Education from Connecticut. Immediately following graduation I moved to Austin for my first teaching position (and sunshine) four years ago! I taught Spanish for one year and third grade for three years. I love working with children and am grateful for the opportunity to work one on one with your child. Watching children grow and learn in the classroom is remarkable and getting to play a role in their progress is such a gift. I look forward to working with your child!

Math is such a fun subject to teach and learn. There are so many strategies that a child can use to be successful. Trying out different strategies until you find the one that really resonates with you and helps make math make sense is very important. My students used to tell me "math class is like Disney World!". I love making math fun and engaging!

Reading only gets better with practice. Making reading fun and enjoyable is crucial. Students need to read books that capture their attention and are sometimes challenging but not frustrating to read. Reading activities can make struggling readers have so much fun they forget they are even struggling!

I have been teaching Elementary school for 4 years. I've been to many professional development conferences to improve my teaching. I am certified EC-6, ESL, and am fluent in Spanish.

I can't wait to work with you!!
