About Patty


Bio

I am passionate about literature, a skilled writer, and a career English teacher with over 23 years of teaching in Virginia public high schools, a private Quaker school, and in a highly competitive European prep school.

I have stepped away from the classroom this year to help my young daughter navigate her virtual learning experience, but I miss my high school students terribly. I’d love the chance to bring a little enthusiasm into your learning experience!

I am passionate about literature, a skilled writer, and a career English teacher with over 23 years of teaching in Virginia public high schools, a private Quaker school, and in a highly competitive European prep school.

I have stepped away from the classroom this year to help my young daughter navigate her virtual learning experience, but I miss my high school students terribly. I’d love the chance to bring a little enthusiasm into your learning experience!

I’m an outstanding English teacher. I love diagramming: you have no idea. While I may not have ever studied Latin, I know how English works at the structural level and can explain it well. I love to read - fiction, poetry, nonfiction, you name it! - so I pride myself on making solid recommendations that kindle others’ love of this pastime. I am a painstaking editor who can find all the small stuff without losing sight of the significant structures that make solid, effective writing.

Let’s connect! Chances are that I’m very familiar with what you’re studying, having taught it myself. However, even if it’s new to me, this is the first time in my career that I have ample time to devote to a handful of students. I promise I won’t disappoint!

Fantastic tutor

Patty has been a phenomenal tutor for my daughter to help her in her structured writing. Patty is patient, knowledgable, and responsive, all the qualities that make a tutor stand out. My daughter has really enjoyed working with her.

Excellent tutor with patience and understanding

She's an awesome tutor. My son had some trouble with English assignments and she was able to help my son complete those assignments. She was very patient and was able to diagnose what my son's needs were and help him accordingly. My son had some unique challenges and so it was very tough to adapt to his needs and help him. We also needed someone who's able to make sure my son is able to finish and submit his assignments timely. She did all of that.

knowledgeable and experienced tutor

Patty is passionate, positive and responsible tutor and she is well-prepared for each session. From the lessons we had with her, it is very clear that she is very experienced and knows how to make the students to improve in the shortest time. I also like her feedback after each lesson which has detail information about what she did and what the student made progress on and what they will do the next. It is very helpful for the parents.
