About Patty

Having taught my older son (now 16) to read at home at age 4, I've always been a strong advocate of more reading, less TV! I prepared my son for the Catholic high school examination by making up vocabulary and spelling tests. I also taught my younger (11), adopted special needs son to read outside school. Presently I'm preparing my son for the SAT exams without any formal outside courses. I am a freelance writer and published journalist, currently writing an online Long Island special needs parenting column. I'm regularly told I'm gifted with kids, in terms of getting on their level, patience, and creativity.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a published writer with three online columns. Reading, spelling, writing, grammar are my areas of expertise. One of the best things I've ever done is teaching my older son to read at home at age 4. I started with him before he began kindergarten. I used an early childhood program from Phyllis Shafly and Eagle Forum. I then later used this same program with my younger son when he was adopted after years in an orphanage and even without being fluent yet in English, the program was of great help to us.
