About Patty

Hello,

My passion is literature and writing responses to it. I have always loved teaching and the joy it brings me on a daily basis. I teach 7th and 8th grade language arts and U.S. History. We spend time on vocabulary, grammar (in small doses :)), reading short stories and novels, and responding to text through writing. I feel the ability to respond to literature is a skill that will follow a student throughout their education and life. Writing clearly and concisely opens many doors for students as their writing will get straight to the point and express their thoughts in the best possible way.

During a tutoring session, I will:
1. Ask for clarification on the assignment
2. Ask the student what help they need completing the assignment
3. Find resources to help the student do the assignment to the best of their ability
4. Ask the student how they prefer that I help them
5. Ask the student to show me how they did on previous assignments
