Mrs Patricia B. of Austin TX USA Tutor Profile

Tutor Personal Information

Name: Mrs Patricia B.
Gender: Female   Age: 51-65
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Because I believe that compatibility is important, I do not charge for the first session.

I am a K-8 certified in General and Special Education, with eleven years experience teaching all elementary levels and subjects, as well as middle school Math and Reading. I hold a B.A. in Spanish from U. of Texas and a Master of Liberal Arts from SMU. I have also been trained in and taught classes for standardized tests (e.g. Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills, SAT Reading & Writing). Recently, I completed a BLS - Dyslexia course, and have worked with dyslexic students in several classes. My tutoring philosophy is to work directly with parents to formulate a set of goals specific to the needs of their child, and to create a positive, supportive learning environment. I believe that enhancing a childs self-esteem and confidence is imperative in improving academic performance and motivation.
