Overview

Trying to understand the English language can be a daunting task at first. However, by breaking down the individual components of this complex language, things can become incredibly easy to comprehend. Join me in this English language series as I break down the components of the English language, beginning with the parts of speech and specifically prepositions. In this first course, you will learn not only what a preposition is but also how to find prepositions in the sentence and even the reason why you should first find prepositions before searching for any other component of the sentence.

Instructor

Hey there! My name is Alyssa Humphreys, and I have over twelve years of tutoring and teaching experience. I live in Texas in the U.S.A. where I currently teach various middle school classes. I have graduated from Texas Independent Baptist Seminary and Schools with both a bachelor’s degree in religious education (majoring in secondary education, minoring in elementary education) and a master’s degree in religious education (specializing in curriculum development). I am now pursuing my doctorate in special education. My favorite part of teaching is being able to watch the light come on for the first time in a student’s mind, and I constantly work toward this goal using exciting and patient sessions.
