About Patricia

I have twenty years of experience in public finance, municipal bond portfolio management and financial systems. As a independent financial advisor, I have assisted many local governments and governmental agencies in the issuance of their municipal bonds. My undergraduate degree is in economics, and I had nearly enough course work for a second concentration in computer science.

I am available to tutor junior high, high school, college or graduate students in economics, public finance, math, or writing. I am also available to coach high school students applying to college. For the past ten years, I have volunteered as an alumna interviewer for the Harvard College admissions office.


Thanks, Trish G.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

College Counseling

I am a graduate of Harvard College (A.B. in economics) and I attended graduate school in government administration and finance at the University of Pennsylvania.

I have been active for more than ten years in recruitment interviewing for the Admissions Office at Harvard.

Public Speaking

I studied public speaking and speech writing as part of my MGA program at the University of Pennsylvania. The course instructor was a speech writer for five U.S. presidents and has authored several books on the subject including "Podium Humor" and "Churchill: Speaker of the Century." When I took his course, he told me that if "I didn't make it in public finance," I should consider a career as a speech writer. And he signed my book, "To [Pat], the speaker of my class."

Study Skills

I have a good deal of experience in working with students on their study skills and have worked with students from grade school through college. I've used a number of different methods of study skills including: mnemonics, Latin and Greek roots for vocabulary, flash cards (including online versions), PQRST technique for comprehension and critical thinking, and test-taking skills and strategies.

Great tutor

She helped my daughter on her English homework. She helped her understand and she explained everything for her. She really cared about teaching and making sure my daughter understood her assignment. She also taught her skills she did not learn at school. She is a wonderful tutor and I'm so glad I found Patricia.
