Not only is Patty a great tutor but she is very proactive in trying to find ways to help my daughter be successful in all aspects of her studies. She is truly concerned about her students well being and goes above and beyond what any parent would expect!

"Great tutor and very patient!"

After the first week of struggling with my University of Phoenix (UoP) Discrete Mathematics class, I was in desperate need of a tutor. Patty came highly recommended and after working with her for five weeks, I can see why! At the end of the first week my only goal was to try and pass the class, but in the end I exceeded that goal with an A+. Patty took the initiative to review the textbook UoP provided to become familiar with the content the class was covering. Although the textbook’s intended audience appeared to be students pursuing a degree in math, Patty was extremely patient in going through the material and working through homework problems with me. I have no doubt that if I had tried to work through the class on my own, I would have never come close to maintaining my 4.0 GPA.

Thank you Kevin, but you should give yourself much more credit! You worked hard and did a great job. You definitely saved your group members with your hard work. You where in an impossible situation with that class and textbook! Congratulations on keeping that 4.0!

Patty has been so patient and really has been able to get through to my daughter in a way I can't and her teacher hasn't been able to either. When I mentioned to her the next week that Patty was coming by on Friday, my child said "Yay!!"....if that isn't a testament to how great she is, I don't know what is!
Patty replied on 5/11/2013:
Thank you Dana! I'm glad she doesn't mind me making her work on a Friday after school. Most students don't want anything to do with math at that time! I enjoy working with her too, she is a bright young lady!

Patty has provided excellent geometry instruction for my daughter. She is very accommodating and skilled at meeting her instructional needs. My daughter's understanding of geometry concepts and grades have shown a marked improvement!
Patty replied on 4/12/2013:
Thank you Megan! I am glad she is feeling better about Geometry. I enjoy working with your daughter, she is so sweet and hardworking!

So glad to find a tutor who is patient and can explain things. Happy to have found Patty A on WyzAnt.
Patty replied on 2/20/2013:
Thank you Kim, I'm glad you found me too! I enjoyed helping your daughter today, I love making math less "painful" for students.

Patty was great with my daughter and made sure she understood the subject matter. We are looking forward to working with Patty on a regular basis!!

Thank you Naderiah! I really enjoyed working with her too.

Patty is very personable and relates well with my middle school daughters. She is knowledgeable about her subject, passionate about teaching, and "gets" how to accommodate various learning styles. I have seen my daughters approach math in a different way, now. They no longer groan over doing their work, as Patty is doing a great job decoding the confusing language of their textbook and is making learning math fun! Highly recommend!
Patty replied on 2/11/2013:
Thank you Rachel. I am so glad your girls are now enjoying math. I love seeing them "get it" and truly enjoy working with them, we have a good time learning!
Joel & Anne from Waxhaw, NC on 11/13/12
We were having problems almost on a nightly basis with our fifth grader son. Then came Patty via WyzAnt. Patty is fantastic, very patient and knowledgeable. Her ability to explain our son's class/home work has been astounding. An added plus is her experience as a special-needs instructor. She is always on-time and very flexible. Gradually, there is an improvement in our son's grade and self-esteem. The nightly "match" are a thing of the past now!
Patty replied on 2/11/2013:
Thank you Anne. I love working with your son, I enjoy seeing him conquer all the tasks he has each week, he is a great young man!

Patty has been tutoring my daughter for almost a month and I can see a gross improvement with my daughter's confidence in algebra. Patty is very thorough, making sure that all questions and misunderstandings are addressed quickly and efficiently in the valuable hour of tutoring. If there is time left over, Patty will work ahead to give a general picture of what my daughter can expect in the coming chapters. She also gives tips for easy understanding and shortcuts of the algebra material. It is a slow process, and there is no magic cure for "getting it," but Patty is very thorough. She is slowly chipping away at my daughter's fear of math.

Patty is very patient and willing to help any way that she can. She was helping with geometry but was open to helping with better study habits for my daughter who was beginning to struggle in US History.
