About Patrick


Bio

I have taught all levels of mathematics from basic arithmetic through Calculus III and elementary statistics, at the community college level. Also, I have taught AP calculus, AP statistics, integrated math, business math, and physics, while working at the high schools. I have MS Applied Mathematics and BS Physics degrees, both attained from San Diego State University.

I have taught all levels of mathematics from basic arithmetic through Calculus III and elementary statistics, at the community college level. Also, I have taught AP calculus, AP statistics, integrated math, business math, and physics, while working at the high schools. I have MS Applied Mathematics and BS Physics degrees, both attained from San Diego State University.

What I see as benefit about tutoring is the ability to help the student become more confident. As tutor, I provide one-on-one attention. I can assure the student that his/her test scores will likely increase due to regular tutoring. Finally, I can ensure the student that he/she will continue to develop skills always, even during school breaks. I do believe that mathematics IS a language and it should be practiced daily.

Common Core

During my years as high school math teacher, I have taught the integrated math (Common Core) courses. I do understand the importance of student success in mathematics by way of conceptualization of each topic. In Common Core math courses, the use of calculators is not so widespread, in the classroom. With Common Core, the teacher may need to shift from the traditional classroom methods to those method in which the students are becoming more proactive in the learning process.

Finite Math

I have taught finite math several times during my career at the Community College. In this math course, students learn the essentials of mathematics as applicable to business. For prerequisites, students should have attained mastery in college algebra and word-problem solving, Students are expected to possess a sound sense of numbers, as they may be called upon to make conclusions based on mathematical models. Finally, students will be expected to master the technological tools to enhance their work with the topics of algebra, probability, linear programming, and differential calculus.
