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.

This was only my first lesson with Patricia but I already feel that she will help me improve my Spanish from an low-intermediate to a high-intermediate speaker. She speaks clearly and picks up on my errors immediately, with clear explanations and examples to help me understand my mistakes. I look forward to working with her.
I've been taking lessons with Patricia for more than 6 months. We meet 2-4 times a month at either the local libraries or our apartments. She's very very flexible and reliable when it comes to scheduling lessons. I have a tight schedule and she understands that.
Her teaching style is learn as you go. She is very good at explaining sentence structure, advanced grammar, accents, vocabulary, and makes learning applicable to life. We sometimes watch movies then discuss them. The discussions help me in the workplace when I'm asked to recap a meeting or an event in Spanish to my colleagues. I would highly recommend Patricia to teach anyone from children to business professionals to people wanted casual conversation.
I had a very instructive tutoring experience with Miss Patricia.
She is very professional and passionate about teaching her students.
I would hire her again and recommend her to any one interested in learning Spanish.
My son has taken up Spanish just in the past year and is focusing on honing his skills beyond the classroom. Patricia is a treasure find for us. Her teaching techniques have helped him learn faster and even work independently. End product being that he is securing A's in school and most importantly developing a love for the language and willing to work harder to learn more from Patricia. She is a very caring individual who is able to adjust her approach according to the student's needs.
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.
