Hi, I am Patty Dinkelmann. I have taught English, Maths and Music full-time since 1983 and have been tutoring individuals and groups for the last 9 years. I love working with children and helping them to become the best individuals they can be. I believe a good education, which teaches one to think independently, is absolutely essential for success in life. A disciplined interactive environment where all students are encouraged to participate is the best place to learn.

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.

(Ancient Chinese proverb)
