I'm in my eleventh year teaching middle/high school mathematics and am highly qualified to teach grades 7 through 12. I currently teach 8th grade mathematics in Thornton, Co. I started tutoring on the side because I'm passionate about education and enjoy helping people reach their goals. I found working one-on-one with students to be more rewarding then I could have imagined. Whether you are interested in improving your basic skills, developing a deeper understanding of mathematics and how it relates to your everyday life, or would like to challenge yourself mathematically, I can help.
MY SUMMER PROGRAMS INCLUDE:
1) Pre/Post assessment to guide instruction, set goals, and measure growth
2) Daily assignments provided to reinforce areas of weakness and develop procedural fluency in mathematics.
3) Study strategies that address note taking, test taking, test preparation, and other study skills that can be applied to any content area.
4) Immediate support provided daily through the summer during the program of study.
SERVICES DURING THE ACADEMIC YEAR INCLUDE:
1) One-on-one sessions.
2) Support with homework, test prep, and note taking.
3) Supplemental material to develop/reinforce procedural knowledge.
4) Higher level tasks to promote a deeper, conceptual understanding of mathematics.

June 2014: Our son has now been working with Patrick for two years and has progressed in amazing ways. He was years behind with his skills and has worked to get back at grade level. His test scores are up and his confidence is at an all time high. Patrick has taken the time to understand our son's learning style and has filled in so many gaps and deficits. I feel so fortunate that we have Patrick on our team as our son heads onto high school. Patrick is a passionate educator who has done wonders for our son!!
June 2012: Our son has struggled with math for as long as I can recall. In just 3 weeks, Patrick has uncovered some fundamental errors in his math strategies that have never been realized before. Our son is actually enjoying the math work for the first time in YEARS and is building confidence in his own ability. I only wish we'd have started working with Patrick sooner. He's a dedicated educator who clearly cares about helping his students!!
Patrick is truly enthusiastic as well as knowledgeable about mathematics. Both of my high school aged children have greatly benefited from the math explanations provided by Patrick. I only wish that he could be more available/clone himself.
Great tutor for my daughter. Patrick is extremely patient and clear when explaining concepts and helping my daughter develop productive study skills. His organization style and rapid response is outstanding!
We have tried many tutors from private to group settings and have never had any success with our son improving in math. We have had such success with Patrick after just 4 sessions. My son was so excited after the first session because he actually understood the material the teachers have tried to teach him the entire 10th grade year in Geometry. As a parent it is very exciting to see my son now enjoy math and enjoy meeting with Patrick. He recently got the highest grade on a test! When we started with Patrick just 4 sessions ago, he was failing. He is now passing in geometry! My son always had no confidence in his math ability. It is a great experience working with Patrick! I highly recommend Patrick.
My son hit the wall for the first time in his short academic career (freshman). We were new to tutoring and didn't know what to expected. Patrick was more then ready to answer the call. He quickly found the problems and put my son in the driver seat. He is a professional that is passionate about changing the minds of his students. I wish he was at my son's school teaching. Great job!
Patrick has a great combination of technical ability, personality and teaching skills. He was a big help to my 8th grade son in staying up with his algebra and I'd gladly recommend Patrick to other parents and students seeking a math tutor for their child.
We called him to help our daughter with a test in pre-calc. He was able to explain some things to her about pre-calc in a way that was very helpful. We definitely recommend him. Thank you so much!
Great first meeting! I think this will be a good fit for my struggling student. Patrick is patient and not judgmental, which is a terrific asset, especially when interacting with a child who is feeling very vulnerable.
My daughter is a junior in high school school and was completely failing algebra 2. After just one tutoring session with Patrick she received a C on her next exam. Her grades continue to rise. She enjoys having Patrick as a tutor and he is very friendly and professional. She says she would like him to continue tutoring her through the summer to get a head start on next year, which are words I never thought I would hear. I highly recommend him as a tutor. Thank you.
Patrick worked with my 7th grader to bring up his math grade (and he helped him to avoid dreaded summer school). He also helped my 9th grader with Algebra, and her attitude towards school work and exams greatly improved. My kids enjoy studying with him, and ask me to schedule appointments with Patrick on their own volition. He is an excellent math tutor, and I recommend him.
Patrick is a wonderful tutor. My son said he learned more in a few sessions with him than he did all year in 5th grade math at school. Patrick has a way of explaining things so kids understand and can relate. I have recommended him to others and would definitely use him again.
We have only been with Patrick for a short time now, but in this short time he has helped our daughter go from an F to a B in Math and more importantly she seems able to learn. Her teachers do not like to take the time to explain how to do the problems. Patrick does! He is patient, and understanding when she is frustrated. We are very happy to have found him.
Patrick T is a godsend to my son. We have been using his services for help in Geometry. My son was failing and is now climbing back up the grade chart. My son says that Patirck explains things in terms he can understand, not the math speak from the High School teacher.
Patrick has my whole hearted, grateful support, and I would recommend his services to anyone who needs help!
I was struggling in math and was very behind and thanks to Mr. T I was able to pass my math final and the class as well, very easy to work with and time well spent.
My son had his first tutoring session and said he felt comfortable and liked the way Patrick explained things. I am encouraged for my son's future improvement.
Patrick T. has been a great tutor. Very accommodating and willing to go the extra step to help. Makes sure each lesson goes fulfilled. He keeps in contacted with me throughout the week to see where I am at and is not too pushy. He is also very personable and seem like a good person.
My daughter had her 1st tutoring lesson with Patrick last night; she was nervous and concerned he would make her feel uncomfortable about struggling in Algebra - he did the exact opposite. She was so excited about algebra and the way he explained it to her. We are looking forward to working with Patrick and watch her progression. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a Math Tutor.
Just finished the first session and it seems things are going well. Patrick was very professional and knows much about the topic. My son feels comfortable on the way he's teaching him.
Patrick has really helped my daughter connect the dots. Her grade point average has gone up 20% after only 2 lessons. He has a knack when it comes to realizing what the struggle is, and by the end of the lesson it's understood. I highly recommend Patrick, any child would benefit from him.
We hired Patrick towards the end of the school year for my daughter who was a junior in high school. She has always struggled with math and was failing her math class. Patrick was able to help her get through the year and pass the class. She said that he made things so much easier to understand. She has always been reluctant to have a math tutor, but this year she has readily agreed to have Patrick tutor her. He is very patient and explains concepts very well. He is also easy to get a hold of and responds quickly to emails. We highly recommend Patrick.
My son came out of the 5th grade really struggling with his math. Patrick was a recommendation from another mother in my son's class. Couldn't have been more impressed. Patrick has a way of teaching where the kids are able to start figuring things out on their own - he teaches the "why" instead of just telling them to do what he says. In just a few weeks time my son is more comfortable with math and actually looks forward to his tutoring time with Patrick!
Patrick is an excellent tutor. He was able to assess my son's skills and provide interventions that met his individual needs. One of the best things about Patrick is that he can demonstrate a variety of methods to solve various problems. This gives my son a variety of strategies to solve math problems. He is very patient with my son and uses our tutor time to accomplish a lot of work!!
Patrick has really helped my son understand math concepts more clearly. My son says Patrick is much easier to relate to than teachers he encounters in public school classrooms and his ways of teaching are helping him retain math skills. He actually looks forward to meeting with Patrick! My personal experience with Patrick has renewed my belief that there are teachers out there who are truly invested in the success of their students. He has a passion for teaching that I haven't encountered in years and was doubtful even existed. We feel very lucky to have found him and hope to continue these positive and motivating sessions.
The time I spent in a tutoring session with Patrick was invaluable, He was able to explain difficult concepts in a practical and useful way. I was able to complete my homework with confidence and also then grasp new material quickly for an up coming test. I was able to get over those stumbling blocks that were keeping me form moving onward to hte next level of math.
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.
