About Patricia

To those who might need the services of a knowledgeable and experienced teacher:

Loving what I do, and constantly working hard towards my own professional and personal betterment, has been key to my success as a Spanish instructor and translator. I am flexible and personable, these characteristics have helped me fulfill my professional goals. I have been able to successfully teach adults, teenagers, and young children. My largest experience, though, is with college students; I taught in Kent State University, Wayne College, and Medina High School on behalf of the University of Akron (all located in Ohio). I am very pleased to say that I have had a rewarding experience working with a classroom full of students; I look forward now to a change of pace and would love to use my knowledge and experience on behalf of students who can bloom with the right help and the right instructor. I would love to be of service if you need to start from zero, or just support with complex grammatical structures and vocabulary in context.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Spanish

I have an M.A in Spanish/English translation; I am pursuing another M.A in American University in Latin American Studies. I have many years of experience teaching college level Spanish, and a few years of experience on AP Spanish at public schools.
