About Patty

Student growth in English is extremely important to me. I have spent a lifetime surrounded by students, both here in the United States and abroad, teaching English as a Second Language. I specialize in the beginning stages of English, but enjoy teaching business English and accent reduction, as well. I have experience in teaching many nationalities, many ages and multi-levels. Additionally, I have been trained as an English educator through the United States Peace Corps with service in Eastern Europe for two years. My belief is that it is critical that each student enjoy the journey of learning English and look forward to what will be learned in each new lesson.


I have taught ESL for eight years here in the United States and abroad. My social work skills help me to build confidence within my students. My art skills help me to build creativity into my lessons. I offer dignity and respect to each student as we build a relationship. I am patient and add a touch of humor as we explore how English opens doors for the future.

I am dedicated to helping each student achieve his personal desires using the English language. If you are interested in learning English in an interactive, productive manner, please, invest a moment and contact me.
