Bio

I am certified in Spanish K-12, and have been teaching at Elkins Park Middle School in the Cheltenham School District for 11 years. I have also been tutoring for the same amount of time. I adore helping each student find his/her particular learning style, and have been quite successful in making our sessions fun and productive. I work with students in all levels of Spanish, from elementary to college. In addition to tutoring Spanish, I also work with students of all levels to improve writing,...

I am certified in Spanish K-12, and have been teaching at Elkins Park Middle School in the Cheltenham School District for 11 years. I have also been tutoring for the same amount of time. I adore helping each student find his/her particular learning style, and have been quite successful in making our sessions fun and productive. I work with students in all levels of Spanish, from elementary to college. In addition to tutoring Spanish, I also work with students of all levels to improve writing, essay organization and study skills. In addition, I am a trained SAT verbal tutor, which includes reading comprehension, essay writing and sentence completions. My years of experience, as well as my ability to "tune into" whatever is keeping the student from achieving, will result in a successful outcome and a more confident individual.

Awesome!

Patsy is terrific with my 15 year old daughter! She has been able to teach her & engage her in Spanish, like no one else could. Moving her grades from a D to a B (and even an A in the spoken tests), I'm Thrilled with both of them!

Thanks so much, Danielle. I have enjoyed working with Maddie very much. She has made so much progress in a short time, and I feel very lucky to be able to work with her.
