About Alexandra


Bio

I have been teaching and tutoring since I was in high school, a little over 12 years now. I am avidly involved in my community, and I strive everyday to learn more: I am currently enrolled in a self paced program through the UT System, and have extensive experience in all of the fields I have listed on my profile, both firsthand, as well as study experience. What I don't know, I research, and what I research, I research thoroughly. I learn to make subjects that are fun for me into a good...

I have been teaching and tutoring since I was in high school, a little over 12 years now. I am avidly involved in my community, and I strive everyday to learn more: I am currently enrolled in a self paced program through the UT System, and have extensive experience in all of the fields I have listed on my profile, both firsthand, as well as study experience. What I don't know, I research, and what I research, I research thoroughly. I learn to make subjects that are fun for me into a good experience for others by getting to know my students learning curve, and interests. I am easy going, and specialize in finding obscure ways to go around obstacles that stand in mine and my students' way. From dancing, to the structure of post modern literature, from accounting to political structures and economics, I am incredibly well rounded, and ready to work with you to teach you what you need to know: not only to pass your subject, but also to cone out with a little more than the information your class taught you.

Ballroom Dancing

As a member of USABDA, (United states amateur ballroom dance association) as well as a 13 year teacher of ballroom dance, I have had students all over. I have a close friend and ex dance partner who is currently doing Ballroom professionally in New York, and to this day we still teach a class or two together over the summer.
Salsa Dancing,

Salsa Dancing

The Salsa as I was taught it is considered a form of ballroom dance. I have taught modern, interpretive dance, ballroom dance, ballet jazz, and Yoga for about 13 years now. I have been a dance student since I was 3 years old, and while I do not have certification in the above, I daresay 23 years of experience in the field should prove beneficial. I have won 7 awards through USABDA for my work in Salsa.
Theater

Theater

Having worked on dance sets and Theater sets for 12 years (actively), I have been a member of over 53 productions, both as a player and a technician. From lights and sound on the set of Blood Wedding, to Ma Joad in Grapes of Wrath, I know the physical, the technical, and the historical sides of theater better than some people know their siblings.
