About Patricia

I am currently a high school English and SAT Prep teacher. I have also taught public speaking and speech writing and work with students on research and literary analysis as well as essay writing. I have over sixteen years experience in the classroom and I love what I do.
I love working with kids and helping them to achieve their goals and grow as a person both academically and personally. Teaching in the classroom is very rewarding, but working with someone one on one has even greater benefits. Developing a rapport with a student (s) is so important as it helps me as a teacher to learn one's strengths and abilities. This allows me to gear my lesson plan towards those strengths and to help a student develop and grow in areas where he/she feels less confident. Sometimes students just need a different approach to the subject matter or that little extra help that will put them on the road to success.

I spend my days in the classroom helping students gain a better understanding of the literature at hand. When reading a novel, I focus on the underlying meanings and the themes developed in the novel. In addition, I always have students write more than one draft of an essay is writing, proofreading, and revision of content are all necessary steps in becoming a better writer. I have taught SAT prep for over seven years. I have also taught speech class and speech writing. Every spring, work with the senior graduates to write, revise, and practice their graduation speeches. In college, my major was English Creative Writing. I also am a certified K-12 librarian. I have earned my Master's Equivalency and also hold an Associates Degree in Business Administration.

I would love to have the opportunity to help you be successful. I believe in a mutual respect between the teacher and the student. We are a team and we work together towards your success. Your accomplishments are my accomplishments, so I have an investment in your success. Contact me with any questions and to schedule lessons to move you towards your desired goals.

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.
