My name is Patt Condiotti. I run a tutoring group in Tustin, California called Mrs. Patt's Tutoring. I am the blessed mother of 2 amazing daughters and 3 equally amazing granddaughters.
My tutoring group is a family staffed group. Both my daughters work with me. One of them is a pre-school thru second grade teacher, and the other is a Behavioral Specialist, who also works at a local public school.
We are a bit different than most tutoring groups. We work with all our students with love and expertise in teaching, but also with many extra helpful training tips that help to expand the students learning and confidence. Feeling safe and not pressured is imperative when teaching children. All children learn at their own pace. I personally have students who do outstanding by helping them to focus using small games and techniques. It not only centers their attention, but makes them very happy in the process.
I am a huge believer in having my students well feed and well rested. Both of these things can change the outcome of their tutoring time.
For the most part, we all are a bit of health nuts. We eat organic food, use natural alternatives when possible, and use a nutritionist/chiropractor when we can for any problems.
The point to this writing is to share some simple things to help these great children of the future to stay healthy and strong and properly educated, but to make sure their love of learning stays in tack. I want to share a small success I had this year with a young girl, 8 years old. She was having a terrible time in math. We worked on her homework and practiced many types of math and slowly but surely her confidence came up and so did her scores. She is a delightful child, and now is not afraid of math or school. her mother told me that she was getting sick often and didn't want to go to school. I am happy to say that all that is gone and she has confidence in yourself and her skills. Each and every time I have the pleasure of witnessing this kind of change, makes me very happy and I know adds to the sanity and competence of our future children.
I am always happy to answer any questions you might have and can be reached on my website, mrspattstutoring.net, or by email,
Here's to a great New Year!
