This is my 21st year of teaching. I am certified by the Missouri Department of Education to teach science and math, grades 6-12 and have passed the required background check from the state. My tutoring experience includes working with students in geometry, algebra, ACT preparation (all subjects), physics, chemistry, biology, algebra 1 & 2, and trigonometry. I have taken ACT classes to learn how to better prepare students for the ACT. I currently teach middle school science in Kirkwood School district, hold my certification to teach from the University of Missouri - St. Louis. I have 35+ hours in education technology and advanced science coursework (Vanderbilt University) and a Master's in Business Administration (SIU-E). My Bachelor of Science degree is from Missouri S&T.

What I enjoy most about working with students is how I can differentiate to make the tutoring work best for the individual. Tutoring really involves listening to the student explain his/her needs and then tailoring the sessions to these needs. I love getting feedback from my students because I am a student myself and know that the learning process is continual. My eighteen years of experience makes me an exceptional tutor as I can draw from many resources to present the content. I am patient and know how to make a lesson relevant. I was selected as Teacher of the Year at my current school in 2003-2004.

Science and math are never boring to me! I believe that mindset comes across in my tutoring sessions. Plus my years of experience help me better tailor the content to the student's interests and needs. I love working with students of all ages and especially with students who are looking for someone who is patient and has lots of experience. I cannot say with certainty what approach I will use as a tutor as that depends on the student. Finding out if I am a tutor that's right for you will be the most important goal of our first meeting. I will not charge you for the first meeting if you decide that I am not the right tutor for you. Please message me with any questions you may have.

Patty is doing a great job prepping my boys for the ACT!

ACT prep is has been fantastic for my boys. She worked with both of them together then individually. Boys of my much stated “they really enjoy the way she teaches”. Makes it easy to learn!!

Mike, 16 lessons with Patty

Highly Recommended

Patty has helped my daughter in her performance on tests and quizzes. She has "filled in the blanks" where the teacher did not cover the material enough in class for my daughter to have a thorough knowledge of the subject matter. After meeting with Patty it was only a matter of weeks before I saw noticeable results in my daughters scores.

Great tutor

Patty is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor. She is working with my son on preparing for ACT. He already shows a lot of improvement and got a better score on the last ACT test.

Elena, 12 lessons with Patty

Knowledgeable, encouraging

My daughter has been struggling in physics and feeling defeated. Patty has taken her where she is and building upon it at a rate my daughter can comprehend. Patty is providing visual learning to help my daughter understand and remember.

Karen, 6 lessons with Patty

Very patient and gives wonderful guidance.

Patty is teaching all four areas for the ACT test. Very knowledgeable and patient with her student. Gives great examples for preparing for the test. There has been four sessions so far and I feel that this will be a great asset for my son to succeed with the test.
