Bio

Hello, my name is Althea. I am a college graduate who enjoys teaching and tutoring English grammar and literature. I had learned Italian in order to communicate with my students more efficiently, who were unable to speak English fluently.

Hello, my name is Althea. I am a college graduate who enjoys teaching and tutoring English grammar and literature. 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.

Special Needs

I believe that I am qualified to tutor a student with Special Needs because of my educational background and experience. During my undergraduate education in Communication Sciences and Disorders, I took Special Education classes. I studied one year for a Master of Arts teaching degree with a Special Education focus. In the classroom I was an interim Special Education teacher in an inclusion setting, with my students needing assistance in reading comprehension and writing composition.
