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.

Ear Training

I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Ed., including ear training, piano pedagogy, sight singing and voice pedegogy. I have permanent teaching license in NJ.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a master's degree in Elementary ed. I have a permanent NJ license to teach all common branch subjects from grades K-12. I have experience as a 4th grade teacher.

Handwriting

My penmanship is excellent. I was taught using the Palmer method. My penmanship is neat and precise. I have worked with students to teach them more relaxation when they are holding pens or pencils.

Phonics

During my teaching career, I have used phonics to help students read better. Each letter of our alphabet has its own sound. We have 5 vowels, which can be either hard or soft, long or short. This information is important for students to know. Students learn to pronounce the sounds and to listen and identify them.

Piano

I hold a bachelor's degree in Music Ed. and have taught piano lessons to students from age 5-college. I have taught piano lessons in public schools. Also I have taught private piano lessons. In addition, I am pianist for the PEL chamber trio, a professional performing group.

Reading

I have been an elementary school teacher in public and private schools. My students have improved their skills with my expert help.

Sight Singing

I hold a bachelor's degree in Music Ed. Part of my training has been in sight singing. I have also been a youth choir director, where I have actually taught sight singing.

Spelling

Spelling involves listening and "seeing" in the mind's eye. My exercises help the child to advance and use this method. Phonetics are the key and the alphabet never changes. Once the know how of spelling is mastered it is with the student for life. I know because my education and success rate speak for me.

Study Skills

I have a broad experience in dealing with students. In order to be successful in a subject, there must be proper preparation, research and organized study. Study requires specified times and quiet surroundings,

Voice (Music)

I hold a bachelor's degree in Music Ed. Part of my training has been in voice teaching. Also I hold vocal master classes in schools in the US and in Europe. I am also a performing artist---solo singer.

Excellent Tutor

Patricia is very patient and takes her time to explain different theories rather than just jumping right in on the keys. I thoroughly enjoyed my hour lesson. Thank you.
