I hold a Texas Teaching Certificate in Composite Science (which means I am qualified to teach any science course in grades 9 to 12). I have taught for 33 years. I retired from Pearland ISD after teaching science there for 13 years. At PHS I taught Chemistry, Introductory Physics and Chemistry, and Earth and Space Science. I was also Chairman of the Science Department. I have also tutored students for the 8th grade STAAR test. I taught science for 3 years at HISD and for 17 years at Saint Agnes Academy.

My tutoring methods include: re-teaching and reviewing course material, assisting with homework, preparing for tests, and tutoring for the Chemistry STAAR.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. 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.

STAAR

I am very qualified to tutor for the Science STAAR test because I have taught all subjects that are covered on the Science STAAR test. I have been a contract STAAR review teacher in Pearland ISD for two years since I retired. When I was an active teacher and chairman of the Science Department I developed and taught after-school classes for the STARR test. My method of reviewing for STAAR is hands-on. I use tactile methods to teach and actual questions from previous STAAR tests to assess.

Excellent! — We are extremely pleased with Patricia. We engaged her recently to tutor my nephew who was struggling in Chemistry. She is not only competent and knowledgeable, but organized, efficient, and personable. I really appreciate how she writes a detailed summary after each lesson and keeps me informed of my nephew's progress and needs. I find her to be proactive and always makes suggestions with my neph ...
