About Patrick

I have my AA in Mathematics from Merced College. In 2015, I graduated from California State University, Sacramento with my BA in Economics and a double minor in Mathematics and Statistics. I am the William Randolph Hearst Scholar where I was recognized for my academics, service, and personal achievements. One of them included my job as a math tutor. I have been tutoring for over 4 years. In addition, I am a teacher at Huntington Learning Center and an instructional aide in special education at Sacramento Charter High School.

There are students out there that need my help. I heard mathematics is not everybody's favorite as a result of understanding numbers in general. Working with students is a rewarding process because I was able to get to know them personally. I am going to continue on with this journey and hope to let students know that mathematics will become their important tool to achieve great success just like how I experience it.

I specialize in math (elementary, prealgebra, beginning and intermediate algebra, geometry, and probability & statistics), exam prep, economics, grammar, spelling, etc. I acknowledge students' learning styles in terms of what the assignment has asked them to do. Students ask me questions about the problems from the textbook and the study guide for the exam. I always provide my understanding and divide the homework into a series of steps so they will be able to finish the problems without too much trouble. At the same time, I am aware that some of the students have certain disabilities such as test anxiety and dyslexia, especially when they are struggling with the curriculum. As a math tutor, I am able to accommodate their needs when it comes to solving problems depending on if they are more audio or visual. I have been able to contribute on campus with my learning experience.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you excel in school.

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.

ACT Math

I have taken the ACTs twice during my junior year in high school. My highest composite score was 18, including the subscore of 25 for the math section. I tutored students that are in the process of taking an exam and provided them with sample questions on math. ACT is one of the tests that is required for a college admission.

Algebra 1

I took Algebra 1 in 8th grade and received an "A." I have tutored students in Algebra 1 at Merced College and California State University, Sacramento. I worked with students in small groups and worked on problems step-by-step to see if they can come up with the same answer.

Algebra 2

I took Algebra 2 as a high school sophomore and received an "A." I have tutored students in Algebra 2 at Merced College and California State University, Sacramento. I worked with students in small groups and worked on problems step-by-step to see if they can come up with the same answer. I developed the skills from Algebra 1 and used them to attempt problems in Algebra 2. I prepared students to get ready for Precalculus.

Econometrics

I took econometrics (ECON-141) last year as one of my elective economics courses and received an "A." I use the tools that I learned from statistics and applied them to economic theory and its applications. I tutored students who are majoring in economics mostly on math and statistics. I worked in small groups and present students with the concepts they learned in their economics class. I am currently working on my BA in Economics with a double minor in Mathematics and Statistics.

Economics

I took introduction to macroeconomics and microeconomics (ECON-1A and ECON-1B) at Merced College for General Education and received an "A" for both courses. I also took intermediate macroeconomics and microeconomics (ECON-100A and ECON-100B) at California State University, Sacramento for my major and received an "A-" for ECON-100A and a "B" for ECON-100B. I have tutored the introductory courses at California State University, Sacramento for 6 months and I can utilize my math skills when it comes to drawing graphs and understanding formulas.

Elementary Math

I have tutored students from the remedial math courses at Merced College and California State University, Sacramento. It is important to assist students on improving their math skills. Without completing the remedial math courses, students cannot pursue their college degree. For me, I work with the basics and not make them difficult.

GED

I took the CAHSEE as a high school sophomore and passed both the math and the English sections. I tutored students to be prepared for their upcoming exams, including the GED, IAD (Intermediate Algebra Diagnosis), CR (Calculus Readiness), etc. I provided sample questions based on the curriculum in order for students to know what to expect on the exam.

Geometry

I took geometry in high school as a freshman and received an "A" in both fall and spring semesters. I tutored students in geometry for those who are enrolled in the Learning Skills and mathematical reasoning classes. I enjoy playing with shapes and explaining to students about how each shape is different. Algebra is important in geometry when it comes to length, area, and volume.

Grammar

I took 2 years of regular English and another 2 years of AP English. I received 5 A's and 3 B's. I proofread several papers from students and I provide suggestions on some of the sentences that might work. Some topics that I worked with are subject-verb agreements, parallel structures, and pronouns. I practiced them on the CAHSEE, standardized tests, SATs, and ACTs. Students will determine if the sentence needs to be fixed or not based on what I give them as an exercise.

Handwriting

As a teacher at Huntington Learning Center, I assist students on how to trace letters and form them into words when it comes to basic skills. This will lead to developing sentences by using the words they are given. Handwriting is important because I want to be able to read their papers when it comes to grading.

Prealgebra

I have taken several math courses before enrolling in Algebra 1. I have tutored students in prealgebra at Merced College and California State University, Sacramento. I worked with students in small groups and worked on problems step-by-step to see if they can come up with the same answer.

Probability

I took AP Statistics as a high school senior and received an "A-" for both fall and spring semesters. Later, I took STAT-50 and STAT-115A at California State University, Sacramento. I use cards, coins, and dices to discuss probability based on chances. Students learn about how probability is used in math, biology, finance, and risk.

SAT Math

I have taken the SATs twice during my junior year in high school. My highest score was 1400, including 570 for the math section. I tutored students that are in the process of taking an exam and provided them with sample questions on math. SAT is one of the tests that is required for a college admission.

Spelling

I have practiced spelling words as long as I can remember. Spelling can be challenging when it comes to words that most students are not familiar with. When it comes to preparing for the spelling test, I work with students who need help understanding on each word is spelled. I tell them the word and they have to figure out how to spell it by using oral and written communication. In addition, students need to know how each word is used in a sentence.

Statistics

I took AP Statistics as a high school senior and received an "A-" for both fall and spring semesters. Later, I took STAT-50 and STAT-115B at California State University, Sacramento. I use sampling to create data. Students learned about how to read data when it comes to analysis. They enjoy using visual aids to help them with their understanding on statistics.

Study Skills

I developed study skills when I was in the AVID program from 10th to 12th grade. I help students figure out what concepts to study for the upcoming exam or final. Taking notes is the key because students need the important information. I tutor in math and determine what types of problems students will encounter for the exam or final. I have been tutoring for 4 years. I obtained my AA in Mathematics from Merced College. I am currently working on my BA in Economics with a double minor in Mathematics and Statistics at California State University, Sacramento.
