About Pat

I am a college instructor, writer, and managerial accountant with 15+ years experience breaking down seemingly complex topics so that anyone can understand. I specialize in helping professionals brush up on computer or writing skills. I work with ESL clients and college students struggling with accounting or English assignments. I also help business owners understand their numbers or organize their accounts to analyze.

I enjoy people as much as learning and sharing knowledge. Here are some feedback comments: "Awesome instructor!" ... "She was my best teacher." .... "She made everything clear." ... "She has a natural way of imparting knowledge."

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.

Accounting

I am a certified accountant and a part-time college instructor. I love teaching accounting and work hard to help my students see the logic and simplicity behind what seems to be a foreign language at first.

Algebra 1

I have an MBA and use algebra every day as a college instructor, business owner, and consumer.

I am an experienced teacher and tutor who enjoys helping students understand algebra and how to apply it to real world word problems.

English

I am a free-lance writer and an adjunct English instructor at a local college. Whether you are looking for help with grammar, vocabulary, essay structure, or literature interpretation, I can help. I have worked with non-native speakers as well as American-born students in middle school, high school, college, and beyond.

ESL/ESOL

I am an experienced English professor and tutor. I mentor international college students transitioning from the University of Delaware's English Language Institute to regular classes as a bridge leader. In this role, I have worked with Chinese and Middle Eastern students. I also teach grammar and essay writing to college freshman at Wilmington University, and many of these students are non-native speakers.

Grammar

I teach writing and editing part-time at our local community college. I have worked as an editor and reporter, and currently do freelance writing.

I enjoy working with students and helping them to learn the rules of grammar so that they are ultimately successful.

Literature

If you are struggling with identifying themes, narrative techniques, or symbolism, I can help. I teach English at the college level part-time and write, too. I enjoy helping students see what is hidden within the pages of great literature and guiding them in crafting essays.

Microsoft Excel

I am a college instructor and business analyst who lives and breathes Excel. I love to help students figure out how to use the application to solve their problems.

I have over 15 years experience working with the many editions of Excel. From explaning how to set up a formula or template to how to link spreadsheets and employ advanced functions - I am here to help.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I am a part-time college instructor and former business analyst, who uses PowerPoint all the time to communicate to teams, students, and individuals.

I can help with basic functionality to advanced features.

Proofreading

I am a free-lance writer, part-time college instructor, and former editor. I have a BA in English from the University of Delaware.

I love the English language and sharing its structure and beauty with my students. Everyone can write well; understanding the rules of grammar and style is key.

Writing

I am a part-time college instructor and free-lance writer. I like to teach essay writing like it is a recipe for something delicious. If you can follow directions and know what to add when you can easily learn how to write a narrative essay, procedural essay, cause or effect essay, and a persuasive essay.
