"Hi! My name is Patricia. I have been homeschooling my 2 kids for the past 10 years. I also been have teaching History and History Crafts to 1st and 2nd graders in groups of 5 - 8 students at a Homeschool Co-op for the past 2 years. In addition, I have a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. In my role as a Psychologist, I taught medical students one-on-one about psychology and the importance of the doctor-patient relationship for 2 years.

Having obtained a Ph.D. uniquely qualifies me in several areas. I know the study skills that are necessary to get A's in college. I will share how to improve memory retention and increase their efficiency in studying. Getting a Ph.D has also taught me the skills to succeed in the college and scholarship application process. I can review applications and make suggestions. It would be great to help students increase their chances of acceptance into the college of their dreams. Having received a scholarship myself, I can make suggestions for scholarship applications too.

I also love working with elementary aged kids. Both of my kids, now ages 14 and 13, have been homeschooled for their entire education. I taught both of my children to read before kindergarten and they both still read for fun everyday. And yes, they read actual books, not e-books. They are both succeeding academically and one of my kids is a 4.0 student about the start high school this fall. In the same way that I have instilled a love of learning in my own kids, I can do the same other students too.

In addition, I also have experience working with students with ADHD and sensory issues. I am able to make concrete recommendations that will help make learning easier.

I really enjoy tutoring and can explain difficult topics in a way that is understandable. I have the patience and understanding to help students succeed. I am focused and eager to help students overcome any roadblocks. For elementary students, I emphasize traditional learning principles rather than computers.

I would love to have the oppo" less...
