About Patricia

Hello my name is Patricia and I am excited to become your child's tutor. I strive to teach others the way I would want my children to be tutored: with kindness, patience and the desire to help them become the best they can be. I believe in one on one instruction with frequent breaks to ask questions and make sure comprehension is taking place. My educational philosophy is that progress is often measured in tiny steps but learning occurs at all levels. I also strive to make learning as enjoyable as possible.

I have many years of experience teaching Grammar, Reading Comprehension, Writing and Literature as well as World History, American History, and Government. I have also tutored many students in ACT Reading and Writing.

I look forward to hearing from you and getting your child on the path to a successful academic future.

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.

Reading

My techniques for teaching reading comprehension are to increase students' ability to think about reading. This includes thinking about what you are reading before, during and after. I use various reading strategies to accomplish these goals and they can be applied to almost all subjects. Most students have a vast amount of prior knowledge and helping students apply that knowledge also increases reading comprehension. Increasing a student's reading comprehension will also increase the joy of reading and lead to life long avid readers.
