I have taught for more than thirty years in a self-contained classroom of students from all grades but primarily a combination of fifth and sixth grades. I have used my Montessori training to aid the development of the concrete to the conceptual in all subjects. I truly believe that a solid understanding of a subject is the key to student success but more importantly, to the feeling of confidence and assurance. A confident student that knows that they can learn and be successful is a primary key to their education. I would enjoy working with you and your child to help develop confidence and security in any classroom,school,or social situation. Let me help
make your life easier and more fulfilling!

Grammar,

Grammar

As a Montessori teacher I had the opportunity to work with elemental language skills including extensive usage of correct grammar. My background included working with the "traditional" method for understanding grammar. Using correct grammar enables better writing skills, using words correctly to form complete sentences and preventing run-on sentences, etc.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught at Children's Montessori School in Escondido, CA for thirty years. I spent many of those years teaching fifth and sixth grades simultaneously in one self-contained classroom. I tutored other students from other grades both before and after school and since moving back to Maryland I have been a substitute teacher and I have been a one-on-one student aide in the special education department at Ellicott Mills Middle School and Glenwood Middle School. Teaching is my great love and I want to continue to help any student who needs it.
Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I taught fifth and sixth grade in a Montessori school in California. Having the Montessori background enables me to use a variety of methods to enable complete understanding of math concepts. I have successfully been tutoring elementary math for the past three years.

Handwriting,

Handwriting

I taught English grammar for more than twenty-five years. My students had to know all parts of speech and how to use them appropriately in complex sentences. While diagramming sentences is no longer the "norm" in the public school curriculum, my students considered it to be necessary requirement and became student tutors in middle school and later in high school. A major condition of my class was the handwriting had to be legible in order for me to provide a grade for the work that was submitted to me. This was not always a simple task, and I then had to create individual methods that each student could use to achieve this goal. Many students were sure that this was an impossibility, however, they left my classroom in June able to write clearly with correct grammar and complete sentences. Because I was teaching in a private school I was able to design individual programs for my students to enable them to excel in handwriting. I used personally created practice papers that established how high upper case letters should be and how far lower case letters should be relative to the upper case letters. I had the opportunity to work with numerous students who were not enrolled in my school but needed help in legible writing skills. While this was a challenging endeavor, it was also rewarding to see the success that these students achieved and the referrals I obtained as a result of their success.
Phonics,

Phonics

As a Montessori trained teacher I believe that phonics is crucial for reading, spelling, writing and any of those subjects requiring the decoding of words for reading comprehension and understanding. Montessori methods teach phonics through the use of sand paper letters, and then forming simple words by learning the sounds of the letters not just memorizing them as words. A Montessori student is able to read by decoding words, not by "sight". This helps in English, spelling,vocabulary, as well as any subject that involves reading including directions on packages and recipes. Phonics is a wonderful tool to have for a feeling of "I can do this".

Patient and clear

She taught our son who is in 5th about multiplying and dividing decimals. She walked though each step and did a great summary review at the end. We would use her again.

Great tutor with great communication

Patricia is a great tutor. I saw a fast improvement with my son's writing ability. He loves working with her and that says a lot because he hated writing! She is patient and communicates with us about what they did and how he did with his lesson. I always know what they worked on and would recommend her 100 %!
