About Patrick

Hello,
My name is Patrick and I am originally from the country of Cameroon (Africa). I grew up speaking French before enrolling to the best institutions in the US. I obtained my high school diploma from Choate Rosemary Hall down in CT and later on was awarded an athletic scholarship to play division I Basketball at Colgate University. I double majors in Economics and French and obtained my bachelor degree in 2013. At Colgate, I had the opportunity tutoring French Literature, Mircoeconomics and Macroeconomics to Freshmen and sophomore. I was fortunate enough to spent a semester in Dijon (France) to master Le language de Moliere and to learn more about the French culture.

After Colgate, I taught in private boarding school for two years before moving to Santa Cruz CA. During those two years I focused on APmacro, regular economics, French I and French literature. My other duties consisted on coaching basketball, soccer and running a dormitory full of sixty kids. I am running a not for profit organization on the side which promotes health and education through sport in West Africans countries. I love working with kids and see that I can have an impact in their development. My love for teaching goes above and beyond and seeing the reward of my work is what makes me happy.

I was a A student in high school and college, I understand the concept and I definitely know how to
pass the message along.

I grew up speaking French as French is my native tongue. I mastered all the different accents (Belgium, Canadian, French and African). I studied french in France, Cameroon and in the US. Lastly I majored in French from one of the best liberal art school in the country.

I love economics, I majored in economics with concentration in Applied macroeconomics. I took subjects like; The Japanese economics, Gender in the Economics, Econometrics, Health economics, Banking and finances. I have taught economics for the past two years and I worked one year as a financial advisor for a bank in Cameroon

I played basketball my entire life, I came to the USA on a basketball scholarship and played for Colgate University (division I). I participated the 2006 Basketball Without Boarder in South Africa, I was the member of Team Africa which was part of the 2007 Global game in Austin Texas where we competed against players like Steph Curry, D andre Jordan, The Chinese National Team, The Dallas Maverick and Puerto Rico National team.
