About Patricia

I have been teaching adult education for the last fourteen years using achievement-based methods. I have good rapport with both youth and adults. My experience includes teaching basic reading to an adult student who never attended school but with my help succeeded in getting his GED. I also taught in a public school for a period of time. In addition I have taught and tutored advanced students, helping them achieve their academic goals. I have been teaching adult education for the last fourteen years using achievement-based methods.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

My Bachelor's degree is in elementary education. I have been teaching a GED class for the past 13 years. The subjects include language arts, science, social studies and math. My highest qualification may be the rapport I have with the students. I enjoy the one-on-one time I get to spend with them.

Before my current job, I was a substitute teacher in the Columbus Public Schools. My certificate was for K-6 grades. My specialty subjects are math and language arts. I have also been trained at the Columbus Literacy Council as a reading tutor.

Elementary Math

I currently teach a class to prepare students to get their GEDs in language, science, social studies and math

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL classes and tutored an ESL student. My expertise is in helping students with spelling, phonics, reading, vocabulary and the mechanics of language. I also help students develop their writing skills and improve expression of ideas. Students gain confidence in their speaking and writing skills, and many have significantly improved their grades.

GED

I have been an adult education teacher for many years. I focus mainly on math and language arts, but also work to prepare students in social studies and science. My favorite part of the job is the rapport I have with the individual students. My degree is in elementary education, and I also have enjoyed working with young people and feel that I can communicate well with them.

Handwriting

I taught an older student who had never attended school how to form and write his letters. He ended up getting his GED. In addition I home schooled my two youngest children. I have always had good handwriting.

Phonics

I have taught both of my younger children to read proficiently. I have access to a variety of phonics books as well as many child and young adult books. In addition, the Columbus Literacy Council has certified me as a qualified reading instructor. In my work as an Adult Education Teacher, I often get foreign students who need special help in reading.

Prealgebra

I have taught a GED class for 14 years, most of which consists in teaching basic math up to algebra. I have also tutored students in pre-algebra to help them pass their math classes or to get their GEDs.

Reading

I have taken classes from and been approved by the Columbus Literacy Council to teach reading.
