Hello, I'm Patricia! I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design with a Minor in History from Colorado State University. I then worked as an educational assistant at an elementary school, working with individuals and small groups on both reading and math. I went back to school and got my Master of Arts in Teaching degree and certification from the University of Northern Colorado, focusing on elementary education (K-6). I have worked with students from kindergarten through 8th grade, focusing on the subjects of math and reading. I taught 5th grade for two years and am currently teaching 4th grade.

I have taught reading, writing, math, science, and social studies within my own classroom, but I have also tutored kids in reading and math from kindergarten through 8th grade. I focus on the individual student's needs and use standards based instruction. I try to make learning fun while explicitly teaching the material. As a teacher, I have access to many different resources that I will use to reach your child's goals and meet their needs.

I grew up loving math and enjoy teaching it very much. I am good at figuring out and teaching alternative ways to do things or think about things if the child doesn't get it the first time.

I have a passion for reading and writing and extensive experience teaching them to children. I focus on high interest content and try to make the learning fun.

I am easy to reach and quick to respond. Feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a consultation or lesson. I look forward to hearing from you!
