About Patrick

I have been a special education teacher for more than 20 years. I trained at the Raskob Institute in California for learning disabled children. I have a Master of Education with an emphasis in Special Education. I currently hold teaching certifications in California, New York, and Delaware. I have taught in privates schools and urban public schools in New York.

My goal as an educator especially students with special needs is to make learning understandable. Not everyone learns the same and there are times when a specific strategy or skill can turn failure into success. I focus on what the learning issue is, and how to apply strategies to compensate for the deficiency. The greatest joy I get is when I teach a student a new strategy and they apply it, and all of a sudden i see a light bulb go off and a smile comes to their face. I have tutored approximately 150 students with great success. I'm not there to do their homework for them but instead showing different ways to handle different problems.

I got into teaching and tutoring for one reason and one reason only and that is to make a difference in a student's life. The reason I specialized in special education was to help those who need extra attention and strategies to learn. Every child can learn, it's just not all students learn the same way.
