About Patti

Greetings students and parents, I love learning!! I have been learning information and lessons my entire life, and I am still curious and open to learning about all sorts of things. I also love to teach! I have been teaching for over 20 years. I have taught everything from first grade to Adult Education. I have a passion for education and building student success. I have been an independent study teacher where I work with students in small groups and one on one. I have an excellent rapport with students, and I know how to keep students motivated, engaged and focused. I am currently teaching English at a local high school. I have designed and delivered unit lessons which address the Common Core standards. I have also been trained as an International Baccalaureate teacher. As a parent, I understand that trying to tutor your own child is a difficult task. I am excellent at parent communication. I know that your child is precious to you and you want him/her to succeed. My tutoring techniques are student centered and address the immediate needs of the students as well as lifelong learning. I hope you will consider me to be your tutor.

Sincerely,
Patti

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.
