General Computer

I began working with computers in 1980. There have been many changes since then, however, I have remained current with these changes. Although I began working on an Apple, most of my experience has been with a PC. The machine I work on now has Windows 7 and office 2007. I am able to figure out most programs and continue to help my colleagues learn the programs with which they are working. Although I don't do much work on the inside of the computer (hardware), give some software, and I will figure it out.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have successfully taught algebra to students of all ages. With one-on-one tutoring, students soon begin to understand the concepts and become successful in applying them.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have helped many students with their Algebra 2. Without a good background in Algebra it is very difficult to succeed in many subjects. Not only do I help students bring up their grades, but I also try to make sure that they understand the material as we go over it. With one-on-one tutoring, I am able to see exactly where each student is having difficulty, and address those individual areas. Soon the students understand what they are doing and their grades will improve.
Calculus,

Calculus

I have taught calculus on the college level and have been tutoring this subject on a yearly basis. In the classroom situation, it is not uncommon for the student to miss or not completely understand all of the concepts covered. As a tutor I can see where the individual student is having difficulty and concentrate or those concepts. This helps the student understand the material without falling behind, and gives them a better understanding so they can move on with each lesson.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

I have been teaching for over 30 years, many of which included courses from Geometry through Calculus that all include trigonometry. Geometry introduces a student to at least the basic three trig functions, sin(x), cos(x), and tan(x). I have also taught Pre-Calculus using the ABeka curriculum and text book. This curriculum is very heavy in the trigonometry area. I have also taught calculus which teaches the student how to find the derivative and integral of the trig functions.

I have assisted many students in passing standardized tests, including the G.E.D. Being able to understand what a problem is asking you to do is often the largest stumbling block. I will help you learn what is needed for each problem and you will soon be able to see your success. The most important part is to get started with the help that you need, and you have already done that by contacting Wyzant. Now let's get started with your tutoring.

Wonderful Tutor!

Patricia is such a wonderful calculus tutor. She was a tremendous help not only with improving grades, but also made the subject easier to understand. I highly recommend having her as a tutor.

Mary, 13 lessons with Patricia
Tutor responded:

Your son was a great student! I hope to see him again next year if he has need for help with his math classes.

Great outcome!

Patti reviewed pre-cal for the end of semester exam. She explained some unclear concepts. The result: lots of confidence and a great test!

Patient and knowledgeable

Patricia D was a wonderful tutor for my 15 year old daughter. My daughter had been failing at math and had no confidence in her ability to learn. Patti helped her discover she was learning and knew the information but, was doubting herself. My daughter gained confidence and knowledge and went from an F to completing the class with a B.

Tutor responded:

I truly enjoy working with your daughter. Now that she has started her next math class, I will be happy to continue working with her.

Great Tutor

My son was struggling with math and after one lesson with Patty, his confidence started improving. She is not only a tutor, but a teacher. She was able to show different approaches to problems and help him understand in his own way. She was very flexible with her availability. Thanks for all your help!

Patricia G is the best!!

I really enjoyed Patricia's help. She is the best. Unfourtunaltely I wil;l not be able to contiune my service with WyzAnt. Due to time constrictions, and the price, I just cannot afford the service. I have had a family emergency come up and it will require me sending a lot of money home to my family. I just cannot afford the service, but I really wish I could. Patricia is the BEST!!! Thanks Patricia for your help.

Excellent choice!

Pat was a great tutor and really helped my daughter excel in math. She went from D's and F's to A's and B's in a couple of months. Pat was patient and understood the areas where my daughter needed the most work.Thanks for a great experience.
