I am a patient teacher, tutor or academic coach who enjoys working with young people. It's important that students feel comfortable, are open to asking questions and are encouraged to do well.

As a multi-disciplinary teacher, I have a broad background in education and experience. I have been published in two journals and enjoy tutoring students in grammar, reading and writing. I have also worked as a legal secretary.

I am highly qualified in all the sciences and math. My undergraduate degree is in chemistry with a minor in mathematics. I have been exposed to discrete and logical thinking. As a professional high school teacher, I have been successful in raising PSAE test scores. I have worked with upper level and advanced students teaching trig based physics which uses geometry and algebra.

Working in industry has given me a results based philosophy as well as real world experience using math on the job from running regression analysis after heat degradation tests to using graphs and tables or figuring the range of error.

As a certified teacher, I am familiar with the various tests that are out there. For example, I am aware that the ASVAB test does not allow time for using a calculator. Therefore, it is important to understand the mathematical relationships so unrealistic answers can be eliminated.

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.

ACT Math

I am a certified math teacher and enjoy helping students understand all the math subjects. I also have experience in ACT prep. which enables my students to focus on pertinent questions. A new student will be assessed so we can spend time working on weak areas.

Algebra 1

I am a certified math teacher who enjoys helping others understand algebra. People use algebra every day without realizing it. I believe in making math relevant.

Chemistry

I am a certified teacher who is highly qualified in all math and science subjects. My undergraduate degree is in chemistry. I used that degree when I was a Senior Analyst for Monsanto. I have taught conceptual, regular and honors chemistry.

SAT Reading

SAT reading requires a strong, working vocabulary. Having a multi-disciplinary background, I have developed communication skills in those various disciplines and can bring those to bear in developing reading skills in students. I have also been trained professionally in building literacy.

SAT Writing

Did you know that I have been published in two journals? I also did a lot of writing while working on my Master's degree. There are many types of writing including scientific writing. While working as a Document Specialist, I wrote documents for a pharmaceutical company. Before that I worked as a legal secretary and wrote petitions and court orders.

Patty is an AWESOME tutor!!!! — Patty is an extremely patient person! not only is she patient, but she is well qualified to do what she does. My daughter really likes Patty and she says that Ms. Patty has a way of making her understand things in a much clearer and concise way. I hired Patty for SAT prep, but she is someone I plan to keep using because she is a wealth of information in so many different areas. Patty is well round ...
