About Patricia


Bio

I am a standardized test prep expert. I have over 4 years of experience tutoring test prep. I got a perfect score on my SAT reading section and became a national merit semi finalist back in 2013. Since then, I have realized (to my extreme delight) that most standardized tests are remarkably similar! This realization made me switch from exclusively tutoring SAT prep to tutoring virtually every standardized test you can think of. I have especially excellent reviews from my GRE test prep...

I am a standardized test prep expert. I have over 4 years of experience tutoring test prep. I got a perfect score on my SAT reading section and became a national merit semi finalist back in 2013. Since then, I have realized (to my extreme delight) that most standardized tests are remarkably similar! This realization made me switch from exclusively tutoring SAT prep to tutoring virtually every standardized test you can think of. I have especially excellent reviews from my GRE test prep students, but I enjoy LSAT and GMAT test prep equally. In my spare time, I also tutor on Varsity Tutors and iTutor, because I am very passionate about/slightly obsessed with online tutoring. Yes, I am one of those lucky people who actually loves what she does for a living. :) Hope to help you!

Amazing tutor

Really helped my daughter understand how the SAT functions, and what they’re looking for in the reading section. Then she broke down the questions, and altered her approach. Suddenly she was getting all the practice questions correct! Highly recommend.

Sunny, 6 lessons with Patricia

A teacher who knows her student

My son tutored with Patricia for Accuplacer Essay and Reading. Within few weeks she was able to identify areas where he needed tweaks and improvements. She gave him the right amount of feedback, encouragement, and coaching and he was able to score well for Accuplacer Tests. High regards for her teaching and coaching skills

Akash, 20 lessons with Patricia

Thank you!

Very helpful! I appreciate all the work and effort you put in helping me! I will definitely work with Patricia again. Thank you once again for all the support.

Bhagya , 3 lessons with Patricia

Very knowledgeable about GRE Math

I'm not great at math and was preparing for the GRE. Patricia was knowledgeable about the kind of content that is on the GRE, was able to explain test-taking strategy and help me build my math skills and confidence. I highly recommend her.

Jolene, 1 lesson with Patricia

Patient and understanding

Patricia was able to set a time with me last min late in the evening. She was patient, encouraging, and went over all my questions and concerns. I will definitely have her tutor me in the near future.

Alandi, 5 lessons with Patricia

Super patient and kind!

Patricia was so helpful! I've been out of school for a couple of years and she was patient with me in reteaching the basic concepts of math. She gave me the confidence I needed by reassuring me while working. She thoroughly answered any questions I had and made me believe that I can be good at solving problems if i set my mind to it. She helped me find a starting point in my studying and what I should specifically focus on. Patricia also taught me tricks to help me when studying Honestly she is the most positive person ever! I am definitely going to be getting more tutoring sessions from her.

Tehniat, 2 lessons with Patricia

Great tutoring lesson for the LSAT

Patricia was very patient and kind. She thoroughly explained logic games and how to set up diagrams. I look forward to our next lesson!

Raina, 6 lessons with Patricia

Helping with Logical Reasoning/Logic Games probems

Patricia helped to work through break downs of logical reasoning problems I will see on an entrance exam I am trying to pass. She is a good tutor working with me helping to really understand how to solve the problem to find the correct answer.

Katie , 2 lessons with Patricia
