College Talk Radio – Episode #5 (PC Virtual Tutoring Solutions CEO Patrice Crooms) – Call Carjie for College – College Talk Radio
GAINESVILLE, FL. (EEF News) – Patrice Crooms has been an educator for over 12 years with various school districts in the sunshine state of Florida. She has had the opportunity to impact student achievement nationwide via her online tutoring services. At eight years of age, in the 2nd grade, she started tutoring kindergarten and 1st-grade students in reading and math in Jacksonville, Florida. However, she never thought in a million years that she was developing the skills and expertise to pursue her calling. “Well, it is over 25 years later, and I am still here and loving every minute of it,” said Patrice.
Patrice specializes in assisting students who are struggling to grasp and retain information and those looking for a challenge in reading and math with research-based learning strategies. She has found that the best formula for student success is first building confidence and empowering students to own their learning through facilitating explicit instruction and providing opportunities for them to think critically and present their thoughts. With this formula, parents have raved about how their child is now in tune with self-identifying areas where they need support and feel comfortable asking questions and advocating for themselves to ensure their needs are met.
