About Patricia

I have a Master of Arts degree in Teaching English as a Second Language. I would like to be a tutor because I want to help children and adults become more knowledgeable and successful in their future. If a tutor has a positive attitude and a sense of humor, he/she will find things to laugh about each day. Sometimes it will be silly jokes that I will make up as I teach that might get a laugh from my students and other times it will be jokes that kids share with me

Student success is what drives teachers to continue. Each student who didn't understand a concept and then goes on to learn it with my help will give me an exhilarating feeling, and when I actually reach that student that others have written off as being unteachable, this can truly be worth all of the hard work. Imagine how good the feeling is when you know that just one student has achieved something because of you. Now multiply this by the number of students you are likely to serve each year. That's one amazing good feeling!!

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.

Ballet

I took 13 years of ballet class.

ESL/ESOL

I have a Masters of Arts degree in Teaching English as a Second Language.

General Music

I played the flute from 5th grade until 12th grade in the school band, and I was able to read music. I also took piano lessons for many years as a child. In high school, I was a member of the concert and then the symphonic choirs, and I read music there too.

Phonics

I taught Phonics to a first grade classroom for two years.

Salsa Dancing

I know how to salsa dance, and I can prove it if you watch me dance.

Spanish

I took four semesters of Spanish in my university, and I made an A in every course.

Study Skills

I have a bachelor's degree and a master's degree, so I have plenty of experience knowing how to have good study skills.

Now we all make the small mistakes and she is also able to see those and get me back on track. She has told me it is more important that you take your time to proof read. She also let me know that because of my job not everyone out there will underst
