Hello, my name is Althea. I am a college graduate who enjoys teaching and tutoring English grammar
. I had learned Italian
in order to communicate with my students more efficiently, who were unable to speak English fluently. Creativity is the way that I prefer to pass along new or old knowledge that students need. Even though learning English grammar can be quite a task, an open mind about your learning style can produce excellent results. I have taught multiple subjects in a charter school for children in grades 3 through 12 who were classified with special needs
. Having also had some experience teaching English to adults, I am a very well-rounded teacher. Teaching summer classes for ESOL
/ELL students was a fantastic challenge.
English Literature has always been fascinating to me. Shakespearean Literature is my favorite. Poems, tragedies, and comedies are riveting. I am able to tutor most any student who is studying the English language
as well as English Literature. After consulting with the student and his/her parent, we can figure out the best way for the student to learn the subject matter.
While expanding my knowledge of Literature, I began developing a strong passion for learning about the culture, history
, and art
of Europe as well as many others. Micheangelo is my personal favorite artist because of the literature behind one of his most famous works: The David. World literature is really exciting subject matter as well.

I prefer to use multiple methods from speaking and listening to drawing a picture, even the old-fashioned way too! The best way to learn grammar, in my opinion, is to read the structure first and then take is apart and put it back together because it helps
with writing as well.
