How a woman can perform her taraweeh at home?
What is the procedure? I mean, I know that she can recite the surahs she has remembered but is it necessary to follow a specific pattern of surah or what?

Note that in acts of worship -with a general order or prohibition- any thing which applies to men also do so for women, as we are equal.
Here's a summary of this fatwa:
Note that 8 is the amount on which all scholars are in consensus, but some have allowed or chosen 20, some have quoted 36 and according to Imam at-Thirmdihi the highest number of rak'a quoted was 41.
For example AFAIK and seen in practice Hanafi's pray the tarawih 20 rak'a divided to 4 by 4 rak'a and end up with a 3 rak'a witr.
Prayer during the night should consist of pairs of rak'ahs, but if one of you fears morning is near, he should pray one rak'ah which will make his prayer an odd number for him.
Note that according this fatwa (in Arabic) you shouldn't follow an Imam neither if you hear it by radio or TV or because the mosque is very close nor you see him on TV.
You could also these fatawa in Arabic: on how to pray it, is praying it in more than 11 rak'a bid'ah, on what basis we pray it as we do, what scholars say about how much one should read/recite during a rak'a, see also this fatwa in English.
