About Alexa

Greetings!

I'm Alexa, a 27 year old woman originally from Vermont. Having traveled around quite a bit (I've lived in Los Angeles, NYC and London), I'm now back in Montpelier. As a tutor, I have been a grade school teacher's aide in a public school (1998-2001), and have a BA in English & Comp Lit. I have tutored high school and college students in essay writing, helping them edit the content, organization, ideas and grammar in their academic work for the past six years. I'm a creative, artistic sort that enjoys exploring the imagination with kids and teens.

My experience with younger kids has been through childcare, pre-K through middle school age. When babysitting, I follow the lead of the children's interests, helping facilitate their learning through fun-- I apply this theory to tutoring as well. Childcare activities have included theatre performances, film making, storytelling, and beyond.
I have been a professional flautist and can tutor students of any age in flute or general musicianship. I also have a degree in Photography and Fashion Styling from London College of Fashion, and thus am well-versed in digital editing mediums and photographic composition. I am confident in tutoring students with Adobe Photoshop, In-Design, Lightroom, and Final Cut Pro. Additionally, I would be delighted to coach a child or teen in a variety of physical activities: I regularly practice yoga since 2005 and maintain a running routine (I have run competitively on the Occidental cross country team and have completed several half-marathons), as well as having been a ballet, modern, jazz and hip-hop dancer from childhood to present. Please contact me if you have further questions regarding my experience and/or qualifications. I look forward to hearing from prospective students and their parents!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

I took several film courses at Occidental College. One of these courses included writing a 30 page essay on "Punch Drunk Love" (d. Wes Anderson), using different critical and analytical methods of academic film study. I have a broad knowledge of films from years of enjoying cinema in my free time.

Flute

I have played classical flute for over 15 years (I began at age 3!), studying the Suzuki method. I played professionally in a duet with another flautist from 1997-2000, playing weddings and events. I have trained with talented teachers, and have knowledge of technique on the flute for tone and correct posture, breathing, and aperture, as well as a strong feel for musicality and emotion. I can read music competently and have knowledge of music theory.
