About Patricia

I am a certified as a K-12 teacher in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. I began teaching in 1978 as a grades 5/6 science teacher in Gaston Co., NC. In addition, I have served as a K-3 lab science instructor for Cabarrus Academy (now called Cannon School) in Cabarrus Co., NC. Since I began teaching in 1978, I have had 7 years of classroom experience in the K-6 area of Reading, Science, or Math.

Although science is my passion, I am equally trained in multiple other academic areas. With my hands-on approach to learning, I will make learning fun for your child and therefore, he/she will begin to love to learn. Call me today and let's set up a time to meet and get a plan together for your son or daughter.

Most often, a quick yet vital pre-test will allow me to see where the strengths and weaknesses lie with a particular academic area. Once that has been determined, we can get a plan together that will be fun for the child. I also will put together a couple of ways that the parent can supplement what I am doing so that the process of getting your child "caught up" is effective and quick.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Botany

I am NC certified in 9-12 Science. Botany is one of those umbrella subjects that is required if one is certified to teach Biology. Additionally, I have worked at Discovery Place and the Charlotte Nature Museum with specific courses for students that involve plant identification, organic gardening/composting, etc.

I have written several grants that involve the design/care and installation of butterfly gardens, etc. on school grounds.

Common Core

Common Core has been used in NC classrooms since 2006. Therefore, since I am NC certified, I am familiar with the math, science and technology portion of the common core curriculum. In addition, I am licensed in NC as a Instructional Technology facilitator and use technology daily in my classroom.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a NC, SC, and Georgia certified teacher in K-6. I began teaching in 1978 as a 5/6 science teacher in Gaston Co., NC. In addition, I have served as a K-3 lab science instructor for Cabarrus Academy (now called Cannon School) in Cabarrus Co., NC.

Since I began teaching in 1978, I have 7 years of classroom experience in the K-6 area of Reading, Science, or Math.

Microsoft Publisher

All of my schools use Microsoft products. I have been using publisher since it became available years ago. I use it for the classroom newsletters that come home to my student's parents. Students are expected to use publisher when working in a group or completing group projects. I also use publisher for business applications and flyers when required or requested by friends or family.
