About Patricia

I am a newspaper publisher and have a great love for the written word. I taught GED preparation for 8 years in the Detroit Public Schools' Adult Education program, and was very successful in teaching grammar while helping students to master essay writing. I hold a bachelor's degree in English and a master's degree in journalism.

In addition I taught social studies and literature where I helped to hone students' critical thinking and reasoning skills.
At heart, I am a grammarian who is sometimes disheartened by those that find English grammar hard or unimportant. I'd love to tutor in the language arts and help make English grammar and composition fun and easy!

Publisher/editor of quarterly publication.
Degrees in English and journalism

Most of us don't remember grammar rules or the mechanics of writing. Even those of us that are considered good writers would be hard pressed to tell you why they write well. My approach is to first review basic grammar and writing mechanics, and then to apply that learning to your writing. It works.......once you know the rules. Call me.

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.

English

I am a professional writer having written and edited several publications. I have taught English grammar and composition at the community college level and to students preparing for the grammar and essay portions of the GED exam. I hold a bachelor's degree in English and a master's degree in journalism.

Literature

As an English major, I learned to read and analyze the literary classics. I am delighted to pass that learning on through my student-centered teaching style.
