About Patricia

I have the talent of pulling the best writing out of you, painlessly :) I have taught in public, private, alternative and special K-12 schools, community college and senior citizens in Connecticut, Hawaii and the Middle East for over 20 years, and I'm a Mom, too. I am certified in special education and have created and taught organization, study and time management skills programs, mentored and supervised beginning teachers and really enjoy working with students whose native language may not be English; I know conversational Spanish, and some Arabic. Additionally, I have written curriculum for National Geographic, computer programs and have taught teachers how to improve their programs and skills using Multiple Intelligences and Differentiated Instruction in the classroom.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I hold a masters degree in Education and a B.S. Special Education as well as an active state of Connecticut Certification in Comprehensive Special Education, Pre-Kindergarten through grade twelve. I have over twenty years of experience teaching all grades and exceptionalities and have conducted teacher and paraprofessional training on Inclusion and strategies to teach the student with special needs.

Special Needs

State of Connecticut Certification in Comprehensive Special Education, Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12 and have taught Direct Strategies to community college students covered under ADA.

Study Skills

Creator and trainer in study, organization and time management study skills programs; special education teacher in Pre-Kindergarten through community college.

Writing

I'm a published author and have enjoyed teaching writing to students from grades 3 to senior citizens. I've created a program to improve written expression on high-stakes tests such as the CT Mastery Test CMT and Hawaii State Assessment HSA. Participants in this program have achieved improved scores on tests, a renewed interest in writing, and greater competence and confidence in self-expression. I've been writing since I was old enough to hold a pencil, and I hope I can share my love of the craft with you.

Great English Tutor

Patricia was very informative in writing a 4 page college level persuasive essay. She knew all aspects of how to write a great essay and how to develop a well detailed essay with quotes and examples. She was very professional and knowledgeable in this subject. She also was able to answer any questions I had and was able to help me finish my assignment with my friend. She also responded to my email
