About Patricia

I have a BS in Elementary Ed with certifications in ESE, ESOL and Early Childhood plus many years (10+) of teaching in the elementary classroom. I have 37 years experience as a classroom teacher, reading specialist, ESE Specialist and ESOL contact and administrator. I have been tutoring most of those 37 years as well. I have worked for many tutoring centers and have developed private tutoring relationships as well. I support the work of the classroom teacher and if they are willing, I will coordinate my efforts with the classroom teachers efforts to make a consistent program for the student.

I love tutoring because after I do assessment, I develop an individualized program for the student to assure maximum success. Working with special needs students most of my career, I use an eclectic approach and have many "back door ideas" that allow me to remediate the students skills. I am very hands on and have found this is a successful tutoring approach.

I have many years teaching high school and proctoring for the college board SAT and ACT tests. I also have a Masters degree in reading and was a reading director for 13 years. I am very familiar with the college board tests and strategies on how to take them.

I make tutoring interesting and fun. Learning is not painful and my students will feel successful immediately.

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.
