Bio

Teaching is a ministry for me. I have been tutoring and/or teaching reading as well as English in some capacity throughout most of my life, even as an elementary school student. Inspired by a family of educators, I have always had a life-long desire to learn and to make a difference in another's life. Hence, It gives me great pleasure to know that I can assist in making learning fun as well as a valued asset for students of all ages. My passion and my drive to help others be successful...

Teaching is a ministry for me. I have been tutoring and/or teaching reading as well as English in some capacity throughout most of my life, even as an elementary school student. Inspired by a family of educators, I have always had a life-long desire to learn and to make a difference in another's life. Hence, It gives me great pleasure to know that I can assist in making learning fun as well as a valued asset for students of all ages. My passion and my drive to help others be successful academically are definitely gifts from God!

What makes me an outstanding tutor is that I have a passion for what I do. I'm even-tempered, patient, reliable, invested, and very thorough. In addition to proofreading essays, I have also had a great deal of experience with proofreading dissertations written in various required formats (i.e. MLA Turabian Chicago Style, etc.). Therefore, in terms of proofreading, throughout the thirty-two years of teaching, I have in some capacity assisted students with their writing, proofreading, and/or editing of their papers.

I have an extensive background in education throughout my 32 years of teaching within the public and private school systems, in addition to being a private tutor to many primarily on the weekends, regardless of the client's age. I have earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Secondary English Education, a Master of Science Degree in Reading, a Master of Arts Degree in School Leadership, and a Doctoral Degree in Higher Education. I have also been a mentor to several former students who have chosen a career in either Education, Divinity, Nursing, Business, and/or Law Enforcement.

Should you desire to develop your grit even more and accomplish academic feats you never thought you could accomplish, then you've considered an excellent tutor tailored to your needs! My time is yours. Let my words and the receptiveness of those words by you move you to step out in faith in full confidence that you've selected a winner. Looking to hear from you soon.

My background in the teaching of reading spans several years. I have been the executive director of a reading clinic for many years. As a result of administering a diagnostic reading test, we catered to the literacy needs of clients, prepared extensive reports regarding specific reading deficiencies, and suggested interventions that could be used to enhance reading skills at home and at school.

For several years, as a high school English teacher, I have taught sophomores, juniors, and seniors strategies to use when taking the ACT English subtest in addition to recommending several sites which would help the student's proficiency with taking the ACT English subtest. Training from Cambridge as well as other test preparation companies shared valuable information regarding ways to assure one would raise his/her score. It is just a matter of being familiar with the type of questioning, the ability to pay attention to detail while reading, and the application of accurate grammatical skills based upon key grammatical rules one has learned over the years in English. Be proactive and get the added exposure and practice your child needs now!

Great first lesson

Good first assessment for my child to see where she's at exactly how it should have gone thank u very much.

Wendell, 3 lessons with Patrice

Very patient and facilitates good communication with parents.

My son has only had a couple sessions with Patrice, and I am impressed with her patience. I also feel she has done a good job meeting him where he is at and selecting work accordingly, which makes the sessions less stressful for him, thus increasing his ability to learn. We look forward to more sessions with her.

Ulkar, 71 lessons with Patrice

Great first-time experience

Mrs. Patrice had been very responsible and supportive throughout our initial inquiry and first session. We are looking to continue a partnership with Mrs. Patrice to refine my daughter's reading and comprehension skills and uncover the rockstar that she is! Thank you and we looking forward to working with you!

Ms. Patrice is patient and attentive

Ms. Patrice is tutoring my daughter in reading skills and proficiency. It is great to see her listen and follow instructions. Ms. Patrice creates an environment for students to feel safe and thrive. I appreciate her follow ups to make sure that I am made aware of my daughters progress. This is a great investment.

Aisha, 21 lessons with Patrice

Knowledgeable and patient

Ms. Patrice has really helped my son build his confidence and get back in the groove after being at home for most of 2020 and 2021. She has evaluated his strengths and areas of opportunity and is always very patient and encouraging.

Janessa, 19 lessons with Patrice

Fantastic Tutor!

I connected with Patrice to help my 1st-grade daughter improve her reading skills. I have seen a significant improvement in a few weeks! Patrice is a calm and friendly tutor, and it is clear that she is well-versed in elementary education. She is very motivating and patient, and she keeps my often very wiggly first-grader focused and engaged. :) I am confident that with Patrice's help, my daughter will be up to speed in no time. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor.

Jessica, 25 lessons with Patrice

Rigorous, comes well prepared and sessions are well structured

Working with Mrs. Patrice R. has been a pleasure. Seeing my son engaged, and doing assigned homework (on his least favorite subject) without having to push him is a huge success! Mrs. Patrice is a great tutor, she used proven methods in teaching our son literacy, I never knew I would prefer online to in-person tutoring, and I am glad I did engage Mrs. Patrice, I do strongly recommend her.

KARIMA, 67 lessons with Patrice

Amazing!!

Patrice is tutoring my 1st grader in reading and I have notice so much improvement just within a month. My daughter even make more of an effort of reading signs that she see and letters. Her confidence level has taken off tremendously.
