About Patti

I have 15+ years of elementary teaching experience. I've taught regular education (3rd/4th), special education (3-6th) and preschool (6 years). I realize that school can be very tough for some kids and it is satisfying to have a child master a difficult concept. Methods depend on the age and topic. I tend to aim to teach a specific skill, through introduction, practice, review and then a game (or song if kids are little).
I've tutored both individually and in small groups. I enjoy tutoring specifically to meet the needs of an individual child and work toward mastery.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

American History

While in college I took several history courses, including the history of the American Indian, America 1600-1800. I have no degree in this area, just a huge passion for the material and a desire to share history in an exciting setting.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught a variety of levels from Pre-K to sixth grade in both regular education and special education classrooms.
Additionally, I have experience with beginning and struggling readers, as well as working on reading comprehension.

English

I am a native English speaker and I am familiar with the rules of grammar and sentence structure.

ESL/ESOL

I have been teaching adults ESL in a classroom format, working on vocabulary and grammar as well as proper usage of English in spoken format.

Reading

I have taught reading in many different settings, from Pre-K beginning reading to adult learners. I am familiar with using phonics and word families as well as helping children learn sounds of letters. Additionally, I have worked with students on comprehension.
