Bio

Patricia's Language Toolkit

During my free time, I enjoy watching British programs (especially mystery shows), learning about and traveling to to other countries, and even visiting local Florida tourist areas. I enjoy our West coast beaches, having cookouts and going on picnics. I really enjoy spending time with all of my grandchildren.

Patricia's Language Toolkit

During my free time, I enjoy watching British programs (especially mystery shows), learning about and traveling to to other countries, and even visiting local Florida tourist areas. I enjoy our West coast beaches, having cookouts and going on picnics. I really enjoy spending time with all of my grandchildren. Also, whether I'm at home, driving in my Jeep, or sitting in Starbucks, I appreciate great music:! My favorites music genres are pop, jazz, contemporary Christian, classical, country, and easy listening.

It would be a joy to work with you (or your child, or other relative), and to assist you as you learn more about English, or TOEFL and ACT testing.

For the last 4 years, I have been teaching as an adjunct English as a Second Language (ESL) instructor at St. Petersburg Community College (SPC) in Clearwater, Florida. For the most part, I have taught English for Academic Purposes (EAP) levels 1-3 classes, but from time to time I have substituted in levels 4-5. I have helped students with English pronunciation by using an assessment to check the student's language needs and to follow-up with lesson plans for practice and further assessment.

I tutor during certain hours of the day at a Barnes 'n Noble bookstore, Starbucks, or a local library In the Tampa Bay area. These locations should be a pleasant atmosphere and an opportuniity for excellent learning experiences for the learner.

I look forward to working with you as your tutor!

I've taught English as a Second Language (ESOL) at 2 community colleges for the past 4 years. In those 4 years, I've taught speaking/listening for 6 semesters and I've received good-high evaluation ratings. My lower level students went from learning to introduce themselves to sharing information about their hobbies and interests in English. My intermediate students learned to present 2-5 minute presentations on various academic unit material while using visuals to enhance their subject matter.

I teach ESL or ESOL to adult learners of English at community colleges. I teach Reading, Writing, Speaking & Listening, Pronunciation and Grammar skills. I give each adult learner a Needs Analysis to fill out and, afterward, I determine what level of English learner you are as we progress along. Each lesson I teach is from a ESOL textbook. You can look up the specific publisher online to confirm my teaching materials.
