Patrick tutored our son in AP Biology from December 2012 through May 2013 and did a great job! We would highly recommend him! Our son is a very bright young man--but we affectionately refer to him as the absent-minded professor. He is not well organized and sometimes lacks the requisite focus to be as successful as his capabilities would suggest. He was struggling with AP Biology due primarily to his nascent organizational and study skills. Patrick recognized these issues very quickly and defined a process and methodology for study process--read all materials in advance and do the exercises in the book. Patrick would then reinforce those concepts by reviewing with our son, each chapter, to assure preparation and the requisite understanding to be successful. Not only did Patrick help our son with the study of AP Biology but he introduced discipline and organization that was necessary for success. We feel very blessed to have found Patrick and greatly appreciate his kind, patient, but no nonsense approach to teaching high school students. Final point--in the past we have used tutors for our son with mixed success and we are so happy that we found Patrick when we did--he was exactly what we needed.
Dr. P is terrific! My daughter enjoys every session with him. He's helped her enjoy Chemistry once again. She regards him highly, and they have a very good working relationship.
I highly recommend his tutoring!
Dr. Patrick is very good at explaining concepts in a way that students understand. My 15 year old daughter had several tutoring sessions with Dr. Patrick. She enjoyed all of them, and came out of each one feeling like she really understood what they covered in the session. The activities they did in each session were very helpful and the homework packets were right on target with what she needed. We would definitely use Dr. Patrick for future tutoring needs!!
My friend and I began seeing Patrick mid-semester for biochemistry tutoring. From the first session, he was very friendly and approachable. He did a fantastic job preparing for each session by reformatting the PowerPoint slides I sent him. He made sure to include information that gave us a better understanding of concepts we learned in class each week. He made things fairly easy to understand, which was outstanding, considering that biochemistry is known for being incredibly challenging. He was also very easy to keep in touch with, and he always responded to emails quickly. He was also incredibly flexible and accommodating, even meeting with the two of us on the weekend in preparation for an upcoming exam. I would highly recommend Patrick to anyone taking biochemistry!
Patrick is excellent! He is organized and has a plan for success for his students. He gives them tools and strategies to take tests. I cannot believe the change in my daughter's attitude and confidence. Her grades are improving tremendously!
I am an adult student returning to school after twelve years. Not only did Patrick help me understand the material I was having trouble with, but he took a good portion of his own time to talk with me about my goals. He offered advice and encouragement that I will take with me throughout my journey. I can say without a doubt, that if I find myself needed extra help in the future, I will definitely contact him again.
We were looking for a person to teach our student pre med level biology and were having trouble finding the right tutor! After meeting Patrick the problem got solved and Patrick was able to teach and made sure he understand every bit of the subject in a matter in one month! On his final exams he scored an A and we are thrilled!
I have been working with Patrick for the last 3 weeks for my National Science Foundation (NSF) graduate fellowship application, and I noticed a great improvement in my writing. Patrick is patient, and very responsive to all questions. He gave me a lot of ideas and helped me improve my application. I really recommend him for his guidance and as an editor, tutor. I would recommend him to my friends who don't know how to start a research proposal and research writing. He is a really nice, thoughtful and professional person! I really, really recommend him!!!
My daughter is a good student and was worried that her school teacher would not be able to finish the curriculum. Patrick helped her cover all the materials in a few sessions. Patrick is very knowledgeable and gives detailed answers that go above and beyond simply giving facts. He uses a lot of examples and teaches in a way that makes difficult topics easy to understand and remember. He is very polite and professional and is willing to work with your schedule. We enthusiastically give Patrick five stars!
I was very impressed with Patrick initially but recently he became very negative with my child. He is very rigid in his teaching methodology and he is very impatient with young adults. He dropped the tutoring session without any reason or prior notification. I will not recommend him as a tutor.
He is an excellent teacher, very professional and always come on time. Never have any issues about anything. I give him 10 out of 10!!!
Patrick is an excellent tutor. He has a lot of patience and very through when it comes to making conception clear to his student.He taught my daughter Chemistry in her 12th grade. I would recommend him for any body who needs a tutor for Chemistry. He had also shared with me his experience as a science and math teacher, and I believe he would be a good tutor in those subjects as well.
Patrick V. was extremely helpful in aiding me in preparing for a CH101 exam. He was extremely knowledgeable in the subject matter and always had good analogies to better explain certain difficult subjects. I would definitely recommend him as a tutor as he was also very nice-mannered and was always punctual.
My son has been working with Patrick for about 6 weeks now, and we have seen a big improvement in his grades. Patrick is very patient and responsive to all questions; his answers are always very thorough. We're very pleased with how well this is working out! In addition to being an excellent teacher, he is a really nice thoughtful person in general!
It is a pleasure to review this AP Biology tutor who is currently tutoring my son of 11th grade. He knows the subject deeply and teaches well also and patiently explain the content. He knows a lot of this subject Biology and I can call him a walking encyclopedia, knowing everything in finger tips. I will recommend him strongly for any student.
