About Patrick

I have tutored grade school students through adults in math and computers for over 10 years and my students have had excellent results. They have told me that my patient manner in unlocking math, algebra and geometry has been the best they have experienced. I have my MCSE and A+ certifications (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer). I administer the CIS Department network at California State University at Turlock, CA. I have also taught computer courses in the Extended Education Department at CSU Stanislaus. I enjoy the teaching experience and I have been told many times I have a gift in tutoring and teaching. I employ a great deal of patience and find the style or thought process that works best for each student. There are many ways to conceptualize math and computers and I enjoy finding the combination that works best for the individual.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have tutored Algebra 1 for over 12 years. I have been working with a Modesto area charter school for the past 6 years and have received many compliments from students and parents. All of my students that remained at the same charter school returned the next year after advancing to the next level.

Algebra 2

I have tutored Algebra 2 for 5 years. I have been working with a Modesto area charter school for the past 7 years and have received many compliments from students and parents. Those students that remained at the charter school returned for tutoring through me. Many have told me how they appreciate the understanding they have gained with my help.

ASVAB

I have had numerous career changes that have given me the broad experience and training suitable for tutoring others in the ASVAB Exam. I worked as a journeyman mechanic for 10 years after graduating from an automotive technical school in Phoenix, AZ.

I graduated from an electronics school in Massachusetts at the top of the class and went on to work at Xerox Corp for 16 years on the largest and most advanced copiers and laser printers. I now have a MCSE and A+ certifications in the computer industry and work as a network administrator. I have over 10 years experience tutoring math and English.

GED

I have tutored for the CA High School Exit Exam for the past 4 years. My students have felt very confident in taking the test and have had over 75% pass rate. I take the time to explain the principles behind each problem with easy to understand explanations.

Geometry

I have tutored Geometry for over 10 years. I have been working with a Modesto area charter school for the past 4 years and have received many compliments from students and parents. All of my students that remained at the same charter school returned the next year after advancing to the next level.
