About Pat

I have been a certified teacher since I graduated in the 60's. I retired from the Chicago area about 20 years ago and moved to Florida. I first became a volunteer in the Hillsborough School District and then became an active substitute.

More recently I have specialized as a reading tutor for grades k through 5th grade. I still enjoy teaching and working with younger children. They make me smile as I see their progress. I look forward to working with your children.

I have been working with students in reading as this subject takes a great deal of patience, to have the students grasp and comprehend what they are reading. I am very dedicated to my tutoring, as I realize the student needs extra help to succeed in the task at hand. I try to work with their teacher and see exactly what they need help with to move to the next level of reading.

I love working with the younger students and watch them as they achieve the skill at hand and their feelings of accomplishment which makes for happiness. Spelling is combined with phonics and learning to sound out the word and then study skills involve concentration as well as setting goals of the assignment at hand, Every student requires their own set of skills to help them use their time wisely.

Sounds are very important in developing the alphabetical sounds for each letter. Then combining them to blend into more concentrated sounds within a word. This also involves recognizing vowels, short and long sounds so they can put together the letters to make the word.

I feel I will be able to help the student develop into a better person with phonetic sounds, listening to the sounds, pronouncing them to make the words . Then the student will become a better reader and gain confidence.
