About Pat

I'm a certified TEFL/TESL instructor and have been living in Spain off and on for about 11 years. I have been a teacher and school administrator for several years and am comfortable in instruction with both lower and upper grades in a variety of subjects. I've taught several university and corporate ESL classes both in the US and abroad. I enjoy teaching one-to-one because it allows me to tailor the classes to each student’s individual needs, passions, and goals. I'm really interested in keeping you enthusiastic about your English studies by providing challenging and experiential classes. I make the most of what the internet and my other colleagues have to offer by incorporating CNN, YouTube and other online tools.

My experience includes teaching all aspects of English (reading, writing, listening, and speaking) and I've specialized much of my teaching to include ESP (English for specific purposes) such as medical, legal, environmental, cultural education, academics, and business communication.

I am an avid reader. I hold a Master's in Psych and am pursuing a second Master's in TESOL and Linguistics. My interests include psychology, history, travel, anything to do with animals, and international cooking. My hobbies are enjoying the outdoors, watching movies, trying new restaurants, decorating, gardening, volunteering, and spending time with friends.

The best tutor!

Pat was able to breakdown the different components, of what should be in a well written paper, into understandable steps for my son to follow. Explaining all of the elements that are required to receive a higher grade on a project really help him to get things organized when writing. Going back over some of the basics that he missed along the way was also extremely helpful!! She knew exactly wha
