## Profile

I tutor middle- and high-school students in Math, English, and ACT/SAT Prep. In math specifically, I work with most common subjects: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus. I do my best to cut through the nonsense, make subjects easier for students to understand, and where possible help make connections between classroom skills and "real-life" application. Above all, my students and I have fun!

As Levar Burton used to say, "Don't take my word for it!" In that spirit, here are some testimonials from former students describing what it's like to work with me:

I saw Patrick for help on the SAT, SAT subject matter, ACT and PSAT. I became a national merit semi-finalist this year with my PSAT score. I improved my scores each time on the SAT and ACT. He’s a great tutor who not only helps you understand the material, but also provides you with useful test taking strategies. He really understands the test material and how the questions are asked. He also cares about his students. Many times I would go in, and he would ask “how are you doing?” I would respond with a string of information about my newest numbers of testing scores, and every time he would say, “that’s great. How are YOU doing?” -Celia B.

"I met Patrick after my Sophomore high school year. I have always struggled with embracing studying and it lead me to a point where I needed real attention and a different perspective on learning in order to get my focus and goals of getting to college back on track. Patrick worked with me for a year. In that year we not only recovered credits I needed to repair, I actually got an A in both Math and English with Patrick pushing and guiding me. Patrick's style was obviously suitable for my needs and he gave me enough confidence to excel. I am happy to report I am about to enter my first year of college and actually received academic scholarship money. Something I once thought may be out of reach. I owe a great deal of my success to the time spent with Patrick." -Cooper Weinberg Lipscomb University, Class of 2022
