About Patricia

Hi! My name is Patricia but my friends call me Trisha. I am a 6 year teacher of middle school English. During my time teaching English, I taught 7th grade writing for 3 years, 1 year of both reading and writing and the last year reading only.

My writing experience entailed grammar, proofreading, editing, revising and producing well written compositions for the TAKS Test in Texas. I am The Grammar Police! I make it my mission to teach my students to recognize those types of mistakes on their own. During my years of teaching writing my student's scores were as follows:

Year one: 91%
Year two: 89%
Year three: 90%
Year four: 85% First year of STAAR test Writing
65% Reading first year of STAAR

My last year of teaching Reading only 50% of my students passed but 90% improved.

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.

Social Studies

I have a teaching certificate in Middle School Social Studies and have multiple strategies to help retain the many facts associated with Social Studies. The main focus is still on reading skills in order to be successful at any subject. My expertise is Reading and Writing.

STAAR

I have prepared students for this particular test from the ground up. I taught the skills at the level necessary to be successful on this exam as well as administered the assessment.

TAKS

The first 4 years of my education experience were spent teaching the content and the skills necessary for the TAKS exam. My students passed with a 90% average over the course of 4 years.
