University of Missouri, Kansas City (Latin Amer. Studies)
I am advocate for your child in developing their math, reading, language skills, but most importantly their SELF-ESTEEM! I have taught elementary grades in the Clark County School District for over five years and have helped a lot of children build their fundamental math and reading skills. I have also observed children not having the confidence that they can accomplish their goals. I want your child to be empowered that they are special and capable to learn anything with practice and time. I have been a successful in-home private tutor with a CCSD licensed program that just will wrap up in May. I am currently taking spots for summer tutoring with Wyzant and will offer you a DYNAMIC special if you book more than twice a week.
I also work with adults on Praxis I testing and career coaching. My undergrad was in Latin American Studies and I have spent time abroad in Central America as an adult. I am very helpful in preparing students for standardized testing if they or you are willing to do the work.
My students are my priority and I am passionate about teaching and helping others. My professional background outside of the education field includes the performing arts, entertainment, and special events. My greatest joy is tutoring because I can make a greater impact in the academic development of a child or adult. Education is fun and exciting and I look forward to working with you!

Patrice is an excellent Spanish tutor. She was very patient with my student and quickly understood what my students needs were. We highly recommend Patrice as a tutor. Thank you Patrice.
My Grandson really misses Patrice as she actually cared. What a great tutor. We moved away from Henderson and wish we could have taken the best tutor he ever had with us. Patrice has the patience of a saint. She actually made him want to learn and to read. Thanks Patrice for being a great person and teacher for our Great Grandson!!!
The very best to you.
Patrice was referred to me by a friend and I was beyond satisfied! She got me prepared for the praxis (which I just took this morning!) I received 2/3 test scores (takes a few weeks to get the third test score) and I was so happy with my results! I not only passed but did much better than I expected and I credit my tutor for that! She was easy to talk to, friendly, reliable, and knew her stuff! What more could I ask for? I will def be referring her to anyone I know that needs to take the praxis!
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.
I have been teaching K-6th grade levels district wide for the past 5 years. I have experience working with diverse students at different reading and math levels. I incorporate grammar, phonics, and study skills into my tutoring sessions as needed. I have a variety of resources for the young learner to help improve his/her academic work.
I am a licensed teacher and have passed the PraxisI Reading, Math and Writing exams. I will provide study materials and tips to help you pass the exam.
I am well-traveled in Spanish speaking countries and experienced teaching beginning students how to develop mid to high level proficiency in the Spanish language.
