About Alex


Welcome upper intermediate and advanced students of English!

I am a veteran (experienced) ESL teacher and **wear many hats**. I teach, write and consult education companies in the USA and abroad. I have taught students from more than 30 countries for over 10 years.

My lessons incorporate the 4 major skills:
Reading (we'll read articles and dialogues between native speakers)
Listening (we'll listen to or watch video clips to improve your comprehension)
Speaking (we'll chat about topics that matter to you)
Writing (you'll write essays, emails and texts to reinforce what you've learned)

I'm **running around like a chicken** these days, so my lesson times are limited. Sometimes I am available for instant tutoring. Please contact me if you have any questions about my lessons.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Good luck in your English studies and best wishes from sunny Los Angeles, California!
