About Patricia

I am pleased to introduce myself to you. My name is Patricia A. W. I have a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. I hold a valid South Carolina teacher license (Pre-K -2), and North Carolina teacher license (K-6).

My teaching career has been geared toward the empowerment of elementary school children. I have a strong passion to educate young minds and help them blossom into well rounded, responsible, and successful individuals.

Throughout the course of my career, I have worked in many after school programs tutoring students in reading and math. I really enjoyed working one - on- one or in small groups; and to see the expression on a child's face at an, a- ha moment is priceless. I have had wonderful opportunities to teach diverse groups of students.

My greatest strengths are inspiring and motivating students. I actively engage their eager minds by incorporating a plethora of enjoyable activities. Student engagement is the key to keeping students interested and focused. In addition, I have tailored lesson plans to meet their diverse interest, as well as demonstrated direct connections between the classroom and everyday life. Furthermore, I have vowed to promote lifelong learners, boost students’ self-confidence, and self-esteem.

I look forward to hearing from you, and discussing how I can positively impact your academic life, as you continue to make progress in your educational journey.

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.

Handwriting

Throughout my educational career I've taught students how to correctly form each individual letter, and the style was D'Nealian.

Phonics

As a First Grade Teacher, the Phonics Strategies that I teach every day are: Decoding of Unknown/Tricky Words. Blending and Segmenting Words.
Also, to look at the first letter in a word and get your mouth ready to say the first sound.
A focus on short vowel sounds, and word family ending for the week.
