Patrice McElligott​, M.A. holds a Masters in Special Education from Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont, along with Clear Multiple Subject and Special Education Credentials.  She is a qualified ADHD and Executive Functioning Parent Coach and is currently working on becoming a Board Certified Educational Therapist through University of Santa Cruz Extension. She recently obtained certification in twice exceptional learners. Over the last 20 years, she has worked in both public and private school settings as a teacher and tutor for students in 2nd – 11th grades.  She is trained in the Lindamood-Bell LIPS Program and uses a variety of strategies including the Visualizing and Verbalizing Program to enhance reading comprehension.  She is highly skilled in teaching writing strategies as well as Singapore Math, and at incorporating Executive Functioning strategies in all aspects of student learning. Her varied teaching experiences in a variety of schools along with the fact that her own 3 children are twice exceptional learners, gives her a unique perspective on educating gifted students with learning differences from the point of view of a parent, teacher, and a tutor.  She believes in identifying and promoting a child's strengths, therefore, instilling a more mindful approach and developing their self-awareness. Patrice's passion is being a resolute proponent for all students and families and has a vast knowledge of the IEP process. She truly believes that every student can learn when provided the appropriate accommodations in the classroom, as well as knowing and utilizing the strategies that are effective for their own individual style of learning.
