Hi! My name is Patty or Mrs. Z and this is my eighteenth year as an elementary school teacher. I have tutored students for several years. I really enjoy tutoring because of the connections I make with my students while working on their individualized goals. I am certified as a Reading Specialist (PK-12) and English as a Second Language Program Specialist (PK-12). My background also includes being an Early Childhood (N-3) and Special Education (K-12) teacher. I have my masters degree in Educational Psychology. I am also trained and being certified in the Orton Gillingham (OG) multi-sensory approach to reading which has benefits for all children.

I have worked with students of many ages, including students from preschool to adults. I currently have a classroom of first graders. My latest certification, English as a Second Language, arose from my love of my international students. I wanted to learn more about how to effectively teach English Language Learners. In addition, my family has hosted international students in our home so I personally know the challenges that English learners face. I really enjoyed learning from them.

My sessions will be filled with a mutual respect of my students & their native language and culture. It will have plenty of differentiated activities to help the students gain concepts that may have been nonexistent. Clear statements will be utilized. The students will be in a safe and supportive environment that incorporates a variety of strategies and a consistent routine. The students will have learning tools in order to problem solve efficiently and effectively. Communication with parents will be essential. I encourage the parents to be actively involved in their child’s learning.

I would appreciate to meet with you and your parents free of charge about my tutoring services. I look forward to meeting and working with you! Feel free to contact me with any additional questions or schedule a meeting.

knowledgeable and patient tutor

Patty is a very kind and patient tutor, my little one is 6 years, she has been taught by Patty about 4 months till now, and she likes her tutoring very much. Patty is knowledgeable and experienced, always make the class lively and attractive, highly recommended.

Max, 107 lessons with Patty

Knowledgeable and patient

I wanted to enhance my child’s reading & comprehension abilities. With Patty that is what she’s able to do and more. My daughter didn’t have much confidence when it came to reading & sight words, but Patty introduced new and fun ways for her to enjoy learning from sand activities to short stories. I’ve seen growth in my daughters abilities while having someone like Patty who has been kind and patient with her growth. I enjoy seeing my child enjoy her sessions and take the information she’s learned and apply it outside of her sessions and try to teach it to her younger brother as well. Patty is very appreciated!
