Patti Lollar
AmeriCorps Reading Tutor
Elementary School

Hello! My name is Miss Patti. I’m excited to be working as part of the iForward family. As an Early Literacy Tutor, I work with students in grades kindergarten through third grade. My undergraduate degree is in English; and as a former librarian, I have a master’s degree in Library and Information Studies as well. I have four years’ experience working as an Early Literacy Tutor both in the classroom and virtually.

I grew up in a suburb of Chicago and now live in Wisconsin. I have a rescue dog named Bella, of course, love to read. Prior to my life as a tutor, I worked as a librarian. My work as an Early Literacy Tutor is all about the librarian proverb which says, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” My favorite thing about being a tutor is making a difference in the lives of my students; they make a difference in mine.
