Together we will craft a curriculum that meets your needs. If you are in school, we will go over the lessons and homework you have each week. We will also incorporate your interests and experiences in written and oral assignments that will be designed specifically for you.

There will be ample opportunity to hone your skills through many different types of exercises: reading aloud, learning and singing songs, making up stories, acting out plays, and improvising scenes from every day life.

I enjoy working with students of all ages. I have experience teaching many students to feel more confident about their language abilities, having worked in language programs in elementary school, middle school,
high school, and adult education. Through reading, writing, vocabulary building exercises, and fun grammar lessons, you will build the foundation for lifelong learning and
successful communication.

Effective writing and public speaking is key in a great number of professional fields and is useful in many of our social interactions. Every fine speaker or brilliant author went through a step-by-step process of learning the basics of his or her own language and through education and practice, time and time again, reached the high level of expression for which we know them today. I will meet you where you are, and work with you to grow your skills and enhance your communication abilities.

write, read plays, and give speeches and reach for bright new levels of expression.

Great Tutor

First meeting was great. Tutor understands what I'm looking for and has given me ideas about how we can effectively work together. Tutor was able to evaluate where I am in my knowledge base and give me suggestions for what books to buy for studying and working together for the goal of fluency.

Great Help

Hi, I am an international student and I needed help with my project. Patricia replied and met me at the library nearest my home. She challenged me in the project and helped me keep on the track of completion. I really appreciate the time when I was delaying the project and she took the initiative to contact me and remind me that we need to meet. I am very thankful to her and hope to work with her again.
