I have MS in Organic Chemistry and during my time in school I tutored students in Chemistry and various other subjects. I was a Teaching Assistant for the 3 years during my masters and enjoyed teaching. It gave me an opportunity to not only improve my teaching style, but it was a challenging experience. In a class setting, it was always important to ensure that every student understood the lesson. Thus, it was imperative to make the lesson interactive and comprehensive as possible.
Patrick worked with my son to prepare for his ACT. He was very knowledgeable in all subject areas and in test taking tips. He prepared specific lessons each session and gave my son specific things to work on in between lessons. This helped my son tremendously and he was able to raise his score 5 points!! We so appreciate Patrick's help and would highly recommend him to others.

Patrick was very responsive to our initial request for a lesson. With very short notice, Patrick scheduled an online session since we couldn't meet in person. He was patient and knowledgeable in helping our son preparation for an Algebra II test.

Patrick did amazing! Very patient and gave me time to process and make sure I understood all of the materials! He is very knowledgeable in Biochemistry and chemistry. In college, I have been thrown into a doctor's level biochemistry course with no previous sciences. Patrick did an amazing job catching me up! Recommended his tutoring 100%!

I would recommend Patrick for any situation that you need a tutor for any of the math or science subjects. He could probably teach anything in all honesty! He is very kind, prompt, accommodating and extremely knowledgeable. My son felt comfortable immediately with Patrick and was able to explain concepts to him in such a way that he truly understood and was able to raise his grade. We plan on continuing on with Patrick for ACT and SAT prep.

Not only is Patrick extremely kind and flexible, he also shows an extensive understanding of Biochemistry and explains it in a simple way. He has helped me so much in my course. As a student that has met with many tutors in difficult STEM related courses, I can honestly say he is the best tutor I have had. I wish he taught every subject so he could tutor me in each. I would recommend him. I am so grateful for his help.

Patrick does a great job of explaining concepts that I don't fully understand in a way that helps me understand them more. I am working with Patrick on General Chemistry and definitely recommend him.

Patrick is such a great tutor. Very patient and so knowledgeable. I have had 4 lessons so far, and each one has given me more confidence in excelling on my GRE.

Resourceful, experienced, and generally helpful. Can't go wrong with him if you're seeking help for a better GRE score. I gained a 9 point increase in my verbal score at the end which is far more than I hoped for.

Patrick is a great resource for the GRE Quant section, and I can imagine that he would be for any other standardized test as well- he will go out of his way to find practice problems for you to do that meet your needs, deficiences, and goals. He is also very flexible with scheduling which is great for people whose busy schedules are often changing! He is also very responsive to questions that might come up in between tutoring sessions.

My sophomore has been seeing Patrick for several months now and his grade has significantly improved. Patrick is very accommodating, thorough, and patient. My son has expressed on several occasions that he wishes Patrick was his Geometry teacher, because he is able to explain Geometry in a way my son understands and takes his time. We highly recommend Patrick!

He helped my son with math and was able to show him tricks and shortcuts that helped him along the way. Very friendly, my son liked his tutoring.

Patrick is very flexible with times and always checks in to see when I would like to meet. He sends me additional resources for GRE practice which are very helpful. He also makes sure I understand concepts by writing them down so I can refer back to them in the future.
