About Patricia

Hello, My name is Mrs. Patricia H. I have been a teacher in college, high school, and middle school. I would like to help you to keep things simple, to take the stress out of writing essays and reports, and to have fun with whatever you need to read.

My students always find books they like to read. They also discover that writing about "what you know" is writing that pleases the soul. Personal essays can be woven from many experiential threads that make up your unique tapestry. Writing about facts for reports can be a rewarding challenge in terms of organization and logical conclusions. I enjoy helping others in many areas, especially the academic ones. Let's get together and work on your ideas.

For college students, I have been a professor of content writing and literature. Most often, I have used classic short stories, famous novels, and Shakespeare's plays in my classes. I have coached students for state tests especially in the area of vocabulary. I have helped many students find just the right books to read and the methods to write about them. I can help you to organize your thoughts, your opinions, and your assignments so that your objectives are reached in a successful way. Let me know your learning profile and your goals and assignments. I will be glad to help you on the way up the academic ladder, or maybe just to pass English!
