My first love is the beauty and fantastic capability of the English language. By themselves, words and letters are entirely useless, but learn their secrets and you command a power that truly is the axis upon which all else spins: communication. Personally, I have ten years of experience tutoring in English and English Grammar under my belt, and I am also a locally published author working on my Master's degree. I have taught English in grades 3-10, and have also done some college-level tutoring and editing as well. Every last one of my students has improved their grade by one letter, at the very least.
"I know your head aches; I know you're tired; I know your nerves are as raw as meat in a butcher's window. But think what you're trying to accomplish. Think what you're dealing with. The majesty and grandeur of the English language, it's the greatest possession we have. The noblest thoughts that ever flowed through the hearts of men are contained in its extraordinary, imaginative, and musical mixtures of sounds. And that's what you've set yourself out to conquer, Eliza. And conquer it you will."
---Professor Henry Higgins, My Fair Lady
