Before I started tutoring with Pat, I was not the best English student around, in fact I had received a 24 on the English section of the Act. After tutoring with Pat for at least a month, my score score had jumped to a 30. She puts all of her effort in to her student's problems, always suggesting possible solutions and guiding me to my goals and what I wanted to learn. She also helped me with my college essays and making sure that they were perfect for my college applications. She will always stay up to date with when the next lesson is or how are you doing at school, she puts 100% of herself in to her students. She uses all of her resources and is not afraid to tell you what you are doing wrong, and instructs you how to correct yourself. Pat will always find time for you, and she will make sure that every appointment we had was remembered. Pat pushed me to think deeper than I did before receiving the classes. She always had a list of words I didn't know, some grammar worksheet, or assigned essays that would help further the lesson from the class. Pat is the perfect tutor for anyone in need of someone committed, reliable, and organized to tutor them. This was defiantly money well spent!
My student is taking lessons with Pat and having a great time. Also Pat helped him a lot. We are satisfied.
Excellent tutor. Pat was able to jump right in and help me with formulating and proof reading some important papers I just could not construct myself. Pat has a calm and reassuring way of communicating which helped reduce my stress level. I highly recommend you contact Pat for your instructional needs. She was so easy to communicate with. Thank you for all your expert assistance, on short notice.
My daughter worked with Pat for several weeks. Though my daughter is going into her senior year of high school, she is missing some very important English basics and especially struggles with grammar and reading comprehension. Pat worked with her patiently and methodically, and I've seen great progress. Pat took the time to provide lessons to another tutor (in another state for the summer) so my daughter would have continuity as she moves through this process. She also continued to keep in touch with my daughter in the event that she needed any additional support. Pat is clearly skilled in English and grammar, is great at tutoring and very good at establishing rapport with her student. As a parent, I really appreciate Pat’s thorough written synopsis of every lesson. I highly recommend her and hope to have her tutoring again when my daughter returns to Illinois.
I had wonderful wonderful experience with Pat. She is the best tutor I can find anywhere. I worked with her for half a year and then had to say bye to her because my family was moving from Illinois to Virginia. Now in Virginia, I really miss her and her lessons. At our first lesson, Pat chatted friendly to discuss what my learning goal was and gave me an assessment on what level I was at. Then at subsequent lessons, we focused on pronounciation first and then idioms and cultures. She was always patient, encouraging and had great way to help students understand and learn. When we were working on pronounciation, she showed me the shapes of the mouth in order to pronounce some sounds that I were having trouble. That tip worked and I learnt to be able to pronounce at ease and with confidence. When we were working at idioms, she prepared excellent materials categorizing idioms to different groups. She made me copies and explained to me each idiom and usage with examples. Whenever I had question, she was always be able to explain from different angles to help me fully understand and remember. After we were done with idioms, we had some scenario plays to help me practice using English at different social situations. Throughout our times together, she always show respect to student and different cultures and she tutors with passion and heart and not just a job to make some extra cash. I admire her not just as my tutor but as a person. I enjoyed every minute of tutoring with Pat and I strongly recommend her to everyone.
