It is my grasp of foreign languages that makes me an effective English teacher. For instance, learning the complex grammar of Latin and Greek gave me a thorough understanding of English grammar and the ability to relate to other people’s native languages. I have spent many hours proofreading papers for international students. They find my instruction especially informative because I not only fix mistakes but provide an explanation. When I point out the patterns of grammar, similar mistakes show up less and less, and my students feel more confident that they are writing sentences correctly.
I learned English teaching methods through my tutoring experience. Over a span of four months, I gave a Turkish visiting scholar a systematic overview of English grammar and allowed him to apply it through conversation.
Music Lessons & Tutoring
Welcome to my studio, where I will instruct you in your musical and academic endeavors. What sets me apart is that I offer diverse instruction in two different areas. In my music studio, I give lessons in piano, violin, guitar, and composition. In my tutoring center, I specialize in Latin (learning from scratch and tutoring). I instruct students of all ages at different skill levels.
My in-studio lessons are given on a grand piano.
BM Music Composition -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012 BA Classics (Greek and Latin) -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012 Classics Fellowship -- Indiana University, 2013-2014 Piano Training: Collegiate lessons from Steven Glaser and private lessons from George Haddad
As a high school senior, under the tutelage of OSU Profess
or Emeritus and world-renowned pianist George Haddad, I performed the first movement of Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto with the chamber orchestra.
I performed different self-composed pieces at seven OSU Composers' Workshops and won the Audience Favorite Award at the Johnstone Woodwinds Composition Competition in 2012. My Senior Composition Recital was performed on October 25, 2012. It showcased several of my three-movement works: string quartet, clarinet solo, set of classical songs for piano and voice, set of pop songs for piano and voice. Interspersed with these were two solo piano pieces and a duet for piano and violin.
My background makes me a knowledgeable and effective tutor. I was valedictorian at Delaware Hayes High School in 2009 and received OSU's Maximus Scholarship based on my ACT and SAT scores.

I strive to provide the best, most interactive online English classes for every student. We will discuss your needs and obtainable goals so that I can personalize your course material in order to reach them.
Some of the ways I integrate technology to make online lessons more effective are:
-Using collaborative slides to be able to work on the materials in real time. -Online tools and resources in order to make the classes more interactive. -Alternative assessment using a variety of content creation in English (see below).
Project-based learning and assessment is authentic language use in speaking, listening, reading and writing activities. Students are assigned creative projects based on real-life use of the language. The content is used to create an ebook, website, training or other presentation. Their project is used for studying, reviewing and as a measure of progress and assessment over time.
Students can choose to participate in this ...
I offer online classes in Spanish, English language (ESL/EFL), TOEFL exam prep and writing. I have taught students from age 3 to senior citizens. I have experience teaching in language centers, bilingual schools and in companies.
I have a TEFL diploma, TBE (Teacher of Business English) Certificate, BA in English Language Learner Studies with a minor in History and an MA in Teaching and Learning with Technology with a specialization as an online educator. Currently, I am pursuing my second MA degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
I begin with new student by identifying their priorities and then setting a SMART goal. Based on the timeline, I make an action plan that we follow so the student can see progress in each and every class. We reevaluate goals and materials as needed.
To make the online classes more interesting and effec
tive, we will use slides to collaborate on the materials together. This allows us to communicate in real time and the information is saved to the drive, so it is easily accessible from any computer, smartphone or tablet.
We can import images, verb charts, worksheets, PDF and doc files, ebooks and videos as needed. Using the tools, you and I will both be able to edit, write and draw on the materials and add any additional notes, links or resources during or between classes.
Please don't hesitate to use the "Ask a question" feature to contact me with any special circumstances or concerns.

PHILOSOPHY Pattricia likes to work one-on-one with my students creating an individual teaching program that will lead each one of them to achieve their goals.
"Since each student is different I will be creating the material for each student." "Sometimes I suggest some books but I try to keep my student from spending too much money."

International-level English Fluency - - What if I told you there is one achievement every non-native English professional has to master to be able to succeed fully? That, if you have not achieved this, regardless of how well your career is going, you will not be as successful as you could be? This extremely important achievement? Being able to speak English confidently at international levels. As an English fluency coach who has a lot of experience working with foreign professionals, my goal is to help you improve your fluency through regular conversations and give you confidence in your ability. I know that the best way to do this is for you to have regular conversations with a native English speaker.
How does this work? I make gentle corrections in pronunciation and usage as we chat. As you become absorbed in our interesting conversations, you will suddenly realize that you are THINKING in English. That's when you gain confidence.
Who am I? I am a US native professional, with ...
Because I have a variety of interests, I've had the opportunity to work in several fields. My careers have included: 9th grade English and reading teacher; paralegal; legal editor; consultant; mediator; attorney; Philosophy professor; and English coach for foreign professionals. Teaching was involved in almost all of these because connecting with people through the learning process is a great gift.
My education credentials are: B.S. English & Philosophy (Magna Cum Laude); M.A. Education & Philosophy; and a J.D. from Florida State University. I also have teaching licenses from Kentucky and Florida, mediator certification, and am a member of the Florida Bar.
I have resided in the U.S. state of Florida for most of my adult life. Living near the ocean and being able to spend time outside every day are essential to me. Some things I enjoy
doing: traveling, reading, walking on the beach and in the woods, biking, hanging out with friends. My household includes three furred beings: Jax, a greyhound-mix, and Simon and Sienna, my two wise tabbies. All three are rescues. In the past, I have also had horses in my life. Multi-species interactions, in my opinion, make us more fully human.
As my student, you can expect to always be treated respectfully and from the beginning, I will focus on providing lessons that are tailored to your individual needs.
If your English is at an intermediate level or higher and you want to improve your fluency, please contact me to discuss class options.
