About Patrick


Bio

I'm a lifelong learner who enjoys sharing my passion for learning with others. I enjoy teaching and I'm patient with students. I focus on coaching students on the learning process as well as the content. I believe that every student is unique and work with each to find approaches to learning, studying and academic success that are attuned to their individuality.

I'm a lifelong learner who enjoys sharing my passion for learning with others. I enjoy teaching and I'm patient with students. I focus on coaching students on the learning process as well as the content. I believe that every student is unique and work with each to find approaches to learning, studying and academic success that are attuned to their individuality.

I attended a private college prep high school. I took 7 AP courses in high school and work with students taking AP classes. I earned a B.A. from Rice University and have an MBA from CU-Boulder. Most of my career has been as a Management Consultant, IT Consultant, or Technical Sales Rep to companies and government agencies.

I tutor students in Middle School and up through high school, college, graduate school, as well as executives.

I'm a full-time tutor. If you're a high school senior or college student with open periods/time during the day, we may be able to find a time during the day to meet.

My mindset in working with students is that through my mentoring and coaching I provide my students with an essential freedom: the "freedom to choose" their future, rather than have it chosen for them, as free will is one of the many God-given gifts we all receive. I believe that students, parents and educators have an obligation to discover and develop the many gifts with which students are born. I see my role as that of a mentor and coach in the art and science of learning, and when the opportunity arises, providing life coaching to students at a critical time in their life.

For students looking for help in developing their writing, I've written two books (through CreateSpace) that can be found on Amazon: "5 Big Ideas for Cradle Catholics" and "What is Love? A How-to Guide" Each book is available as a free PDF download. If interested, contact me for the download website.

Here are subjects I've tutored quite a bit recently:
Finance for undergrad and grad students (discounting, bond pricing, company valuation, etc.)
Writing
Pre-Calculus/Trig, AP Calculus AB/BC, College Calculus, Business Calculus
ACT/SAT / PRAXIS / ASVAB / GMAT/GRE Test Prep
***
Recent Wins:
Entrepreneurial Finance April 2017: Worked with a student to prepare for Final Exams. The student was able to earn an A- in the class.

ASVAB April: 2017 (2 students increased scores, received offers): One Navy, One Coast Guard

ASVAB March 2017: High School Senior increased her ASVAB score from 44 to 66, enabling her to "delay enlist" in the program of her choice in the Air Force.

Precalculus/Trig Feb/March 2017: Turned around low grade to a B.

ASVAB January 2017: I worked with a student in another state twice each week over Skype in November and December 2016. She then studied in January 2017 using the same process and increased her ASVAB score from 29 to "the 60s", enabling her to qualify for the Air Force (subject to passing the physical).

ASVAB January 2017: I worked with a student over the course of more than 18 months to increase his ASVAB score from a 6 on the pretest to a 62 on the actual test, an amazing increase. This score enabled the student to enlist in the Marines, with a choice of multiple jobs. The key to success was a combination of factors: 1) the student took Algebra 1 his senior year in high school, and he worked hard to thrive in the course, 2) he worked through lots of practice problems (sometimes the same problems more than once over time) and we reviewed incorrect responses, 3) the student took the steps to perform at his best on test day (sleep, nutrition, etc.), and 4) we prayed to God for help (combining action with prayer).

ACT Testing October 2016: I worked with one student to prepare for the ACT and he raised his score by 9 points to a 32. This is the biggest increase I've seen. How did this happen? The student didn't prepare for the previous test while he worked diligently to prepare for the October test. The student is bright and learns quickly. He worked through 3 complete practice tests publicly available on my website and all three practice tests in the new "2016-2017" official red prep book. Another student I worked with focused on increasing his reading score and increased that score by 4 points to a 25 for that subtest. He also worked through multiple practice tests on my website and worked through the practice reading tests from the newest official prep book.

ACT Testing September 2016: One student prepared for the ACT over the summer before Senior year and increased his composite score from 15 to 20. Another student prepared for the ACT in April 2016 scoring a 29. The student continued to prepare for the ACT in the Fall to increase her score to a 31 (and a 32 Superscore).

AP Testing 2016: Coached one student who scored a 5 on the AP Calculus AB test (Regis HS). Coached another student who scored a 4 on the AP Physics 1 test (Grandview HS). We made heavy use of practice tests and analyzing the results of practice tests to prepare for the AP tests.

ACT: Student increased composite score from 24 to 31. I met with the student during their open period during the day for 1-2 hours each week.

Calculus (course required for graduation): Metro student earned a "B" in Business Calculus (June-Aug prep before course start, Sep-Dec 2015). Lesson learned: It's wise to begin preparing for a Calculus course before the course starts, Calculus takes time to absorb.

A Note on Communications:
If you send an email or text on a Sunday or even on a Saturday, you may not receive a response until Monday. We are designed by God to work diligently for 6 days and then rest on the seventh day. I recommend the same for you. :) Take one day off each week and rest.

Subjects

Business

Business,

Business

I have a Master's in Business Administration (MBA) from University of Colorado-Boulder, Colorado's flagship university. I have started more than one business, at least one of which is successful, and consulted a number of Fortune 500 business as a management consultant.
Finance,

Finance

I have an MBA and can tutor any of the typical graduate level or college level Finance classes: Corporate Finance (Present Value, Net Present Value, Bond Pricing, Equity Valuation, Bond Duration, Internal Rates of Return, Calculating Expected Returns, Portfolio Variances, Covariances, Calculating Beta, WACC, etc., Managerial Accounting, etc.
Financial Accounting,

Financial Accounting

I can help you develop your understanding of Accounting. I've taken two Accounting courses in college and one in grad school. I've worked with students taking Managerial Accounting courses, Finance courses with Accounting aspects to them, and Introductory Accounting.
GMAT,

GMAT

I scored 720 on the GMAT after being away from school for 20 years and have developed a specific approach to preparation which can help you increase your GMAT score. While the approach is the same for each individual, I tune it based on the requirements of each student for maximum impact. We will use test materials developed by the people who design the actual test you will take.
Managerial Accounting,

Managerial Accounting

I have an MBA and have worked with students taking Managerial Accounting courses. It helps to view Managerial Accounting as a form of Accounting that supports businesses making better decisions. The subject is broad, so "calibrating" to your Professor is critical to your success in any Managerial Accounting course. I can help you understand Managerial Accounting and "calibrate" to your Professor.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I can help students struggling with Singapore Math understand how to build models to solve problems. I can help students increase their "Mental Math" capability that will enable them to do more math, more quickly, and more reliably. I can administer a diagnostic test that helps me identify a particular student's math strengths, weaknesses, and gaps. I then develop a custom plan to fill in the gaps and shoring up the weaknesses. I can provide challenge to elementary (and high school) students that are not being challenged, introducing them to Calculus, Statistics, Probability, etc. in a way that they can understand given their current understanding of math.
Reading,

Reading

I have just completed a graduate school course in teaching reading. As a result of the course I have developed a strategy to help students of all ages build their ability to read and write in English. While our brains are genetically wired to learn to speak languages, reading and writing must be taught, as there is no genetic wiring for reading or writing. English is one of the most difficult languages to learn how to read and write for a few reasons: 1) the English vocabulary is much larger than most other languages. Researchers at Harvard and Google just calculated the English language at 1,022,000 words and growing by about 8,500 words per year, 2) English spelling is a mess, with more than 1,100 spelling rules (compare that to Spanish's 46). These challenges don't arise when listening and speaking a language but arise when reading and writing. My strategy for improving English reading capabilities takes into account these challenges as well as each student's specific background, strengths, weaknesses, and goals. The solution harnesses modern technologies to address the challenges, taking into account strengths and weaknesses, and achieving goals in a novel and engaging way.

Developing good study skills become increasingly important as students progress through school. I help students identify their strengths and weaknesses and work with them to develop a plan for learning that fits their individual traits. I also teach students specific approaches that are used by the best students to 1) increase memorization capability, 2) focus on what is important, and 3) increase their proficiency in taking standardized tests.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra is the on-ramp to college and the professions, and it is a subject that I began teaching in the middle of Spring Semester 2012 and will continue teaching. Robert Moses calls math and algebra the ticket to 21st century citizenship, and I would agree. It is the foundation upon which all other secondary and college math and science success will be built, so it is of strategic importance to every student. I focus on working with students to understand the "why" not just the "how", so the "how" will stick. My goal is to help students master the subject so that it is a source of strength for their academic and professional career, not a weakness that hinders their future.
Calculus,

Calculus

I can help you understand Calculus and even learn to enjoy it. Whether you're in College and taking Calculus or High School taking AP Calculus AB or BC, I can get you from the point of struggling to being ahead of the class, comfortable with the class and your abilities, and, in the case of AP Calculus, prepared for the test.

Trigonometry,

Trigonometry

It's amazing to me that there is so much math related to the simple, humble triangle, but there is! The key to success in Trig is to realize that you need to think in "layers" (as many as 5 or 6 layers), and each layer must be mastered. Mastery comes from a solid understanding matched with lots of practice. If you take the right approach you can do well in Trig. It also helps to start a month or two before your Trig class starts to gain momentum in mastering the layers.

Great Tutor

On just the first visit Patrick was very helpful and knowledgeable about calculus and helped tremendously with my homework. Would recommend!

Cam, 1 lesson with Patrick

Life saver

I had a dire situation. After a summer of trying to pass the math praxis core and failing three times, I almost lost hope. My academic advisor (I’m a fifth year music education major, by the way), told me that if I don’t pass it soon, she’d have to withdraw me from student teaching—meaning I couldn’t graduate on time. I registered for test that was a week and a half away. I found Patrick, and he told me from the start that I didn’t have to worry because God says to not worry. From that point on, I had some faith restored. He made time for me everyday until the test. To pass in the state of NJ, I needed a 150. Because of the grace of God, Patrick’s guidance, and my determination, I got a 166. My previous test score was a 134. Such a miracle. 20/10 great tutor. God bless this man.

Very, very helpful. My daughter learned so much in just the first lesson and feels like she understands calculus much better. We plan to work with Patrick on an ongoing basis.

Great First Session

After the first session my son left feeling very encouraged and positive. Patrick is very knowledgable on the ASVAB test material; what the test is looking for and strategies for improving. My son felt that Patrick was attentive to his individual learning style, and gave him confidence that there was a targeted plan to help him improve his scores. He provided specific assignments to work on the areas needing improvement, and followed up with a detailed update as to what they covered and a recap of the assignments. My son is very pleased and is looking forward to the next session!
