About Patricia

Hello! My name is Dr. Patricia B. I have taught high school English for 28 years. In the course of my career, I have worked with adolescent students of every grade, background, and ability level. For 16 of those 28 years, I taught Advanced Placement Literature and Composition classes. A large portion that class consists of preparing students for the Advanced Placement exam, and my students have enjoyed considerable success in passing that particular test. For the entirety of my teaching career, I have also taught more remedial classes, ranging from courses designed to teach reading to incoming freshmen to courses designed to help seniors pass the standardized tests required for graduation. My students have consistently succeeded both in terms of grades and of tests passed.

Helping students learn to learn so they can have more choices in preparing for a rich and rewarding life is a huge source of satisfaction for me. In addition, I have received training in the ERWC collegiate writing course and can prepare students for the demands of university work. I hold a single subject secondary credential in English, a B. A. in English and master's and doctorate degrees in mythological studies--a field that encompasses literary study, religious studies, mythology and depth psychology. The extent and variety of my educational backgrounds serves to enrich my students' experiences.
