About Patricia

I have been involved in education for many years. I taught as a classroom teacher, remedial reading and math, computers, and a Writing to Read program. I tutored for ACLD after school and summer for about 10 years. Before moving, I was employed as a Therapeutic Support Specialist working in the classroom and community. During my years as a teacher, my district provided hundreds of in service hours on Language Arts training.

I graduated from Slippery Rock College with a BS in Elementary Education and a minor in psychology. My Masters in Elementary Education and Reading Specialist degree are from Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pa. I have about 80 graduate credits beyond that, namely in education classes. These are from Clarion University, Pitt, Indiana Wesleyan, and Youngstown State University.

I am able to show various strategies for achieving understanding of concepts. I have worked with students who will never be able to memorize their math facts but can achieve the correct answers.
I love teaching and working with students. There is so much satisfaction seeing that look on a student's face that says, " I got it."

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.

Autism

I was lead teacher at the Rich Center for Autism K through grade 7. The Rich Center is on the campus of Youngstown State University, Youngstown, Ohio. I developed the curriculum, evaluated student progress, and trained other teachers. I worked there for 5 years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught in the elementary school for 35 years in Sharon, PA. Most years were in self contained classrooms, grades 2 through 6. I used the Writing to Read lab and taught remedial Reading grades K- through 6.

Handwriting

Handwriting was stressed when I was an elementary teacher, a position I held for 35 years. My students received schoolwide awards for their handwriting. I believe in the correlation of reading and handwriting. I value penmanship. I also used Handwriting without Tears.

Study Skills

As an upper elementary teacher for 35 years, study skills were part of my curriculum. Teaching study skills was also important to children with learning disabilities. Showing them where to locate the main idea and supporting facts, and choosing important information was necessary for their continued successes.
