About Althea

I effectively prepare students for university and inspire them to succeed. I tutor both undergraduate and graduate students and empower them to achieve intellectual and academic excellence as well as professional and vocational goals. Students benefit from my expertise in reading, writing, and speech for academic and business purposes. They especially enjoy preparation and practice for public speaking engagements and respond positively to teaching techniques that include individualized and collective considerations.

I am also highly effective in teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). Learners greatly benefit from the acquisition of four skills - Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. I assist them in improving their academic, business, and psycho-social skills, and they become more and more confident as I guide them into being competent English users.

My academic background allowed me to teach at multiple education levels. It permitted me to learn foreign languages and facilitated my TESOL experience for more than 12 years. In the USA, I participated in Adult Literacy programs by tutoring international learners. Learners developed a love for literacy as they learned to read, write, and do mathematical computations. In South Korea, I enjoyed being an English Professor. I loved preparing primary and secondary teachers for certification as well as teaching undergraduate and graduate learners. I taught Chinese, Japanese, Korean and other majors, and many students were from China, Mongolia, Philippines, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, and other countries. Students enjoyed the practice session, especially because it improved their confidence. My students did not only improve in retention and grades in English class but also in their other academic classes.

My Continuing Education learners were accomplished professionals in the Government, Military, Business, Medicine, Farming, Education, and other professions. In my classroom, they loved to develop skills and abilities for academic, professional and business purposes and also for conversation and international communication. My lessons particularly stimulated curiosity and helped them to improve self-efficacy. Learners also acquired knowledge, skills, abilities, and interests for graduate school, professional development and career advancement.

Teaching in South Korea has made me greatly compassionate to learners, especially after I learned Korean and was a foreign learner in a foreign language classroom.

I would love to teach you. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your academic, social, professional, and career goals.

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.

Business

My Business career is highlighted by a 15-year tenure of building businesses and developing organizations in both the private and public sectors. My professorship in Business and Business English in Higher Education also adds to my business portfolio as business students, professionals and owners acquire knowledge, skills, abilities and exposure to business. My practice allows entrepreneurs to conduct business as well as engage in business development, enhancement and expansion. I have completed coursework in Business Management as well as Human Resources Management which provided knowledge and exposure to work and career development in the business arena.

Reading

Students greatly benefit from my reflective, creative and passionate approaches to teaching and learning Reading. For example, they draw on my passion, and become captivated by voice modulation and emotion. As in learning a language, they listen, learn new vocabulary, follow, and then burst out reading. As such, they develop confidence in reading and curiosity for knowledge.

I create interesting materials to facilitate vocabulary building, attention to detail, and critical thinking, and choose stimulating readings to sustain attention. They love the opportunity to choose books and passages and to choose topics that are exciting to them. In that way, they almost always develop a love for reading.

I also develop and implement assessment criteria, develop and administrate tests, conduct test preparation, and taught Reading at Konyang University, St. Georges Cathedral Primary, and Jersey City Public Library.
