About Patricia

I have a passion for Literature. I understand that some people struggle to read and comprehend literature. That's where I come in, let me help your student achieve their academic goals. Having the ability to read well is an important part of a student's academic career that will serve them well beyond their school years. Establishing a foundation in their early adolescent years is very critical.

I have a very deep commitment to the critical analysis of literature and creative writing that allows me to see its analytical application to our everyday lives. In teaching your student, I hope to instill a interpretative perspective that will allow him or her to enjoy reading literature as well as exceed his or her educational goals.

I am currently a student at the University of Houston-Downtown. I am majoring in English with a concentration in creative writing. I am graduating in the Spring of 2016. After graduating I plan on pursuing a Master's degree, however, at this time I haven't decided where I would like to attend graduate school. Before returning to school I served in the Marine Corps for 12 years, this background has allowed me to mentor and instill discipline in young men and women from all walks of life. During this time, I worked in an administrative capacity that challenged my writing skills on a day to day basis. Lastly, before joining the Marine Corps I worked in the broadcast journalism field. This experience is what really fueled my passion for English and Literature and gave me a unique perspective of the world.

I have a B.A. English from the University of Houston-Downtown (Spring of 2016) with a Concentration in Creative Writing. I was a member of Sigma Tau Delta (English Honor Society) with a of GPA 3.86.

I was an Administrative Chief in the United States Marine Corps from 2001 to 2013. I was also a News Intern/Production Assistant at
KGNS/KVTV/KMOL from 1995 to 2000.

I encourage students to contact me because I feel that I have the background to help you meet or exceed your educational goals. I would also encourage students/parents with ADD/ADHD to contact me because I have personal experience in dealing with children that have this disorder. I understand that children with this disorder need additionally resources that are not readily available in a normal school or tutoring setting. Thank you for your time and I look forward to working with you.
