I am a senior at the University of Florida and I have a 3.9 GPA. As a competitive swimmer throughout high school and a small business owner throughout college, I have very good time management skills and I can instruct students on how to improve their reading and comprehension abilities, as well as their overall focus. I have experience tutoring students with ADD and ADHD and I have helped them learn how to focus and improve their grades. I also can teach students on how to study better through comprehensive reasoning of the chapters, emphasis on main ideas as well as by teaching them to summarize the main ideas in their own words. Similarly, through encouraging students to explain the concepts as if they were teaching the class themselves, I can help students study more effectively and faster, as well as improve their general understanding of the subject matter.

Swimming

Swimming

I have experience instructing swim lessons to children from ages 3-15, all with very different levels of skill. I use a very different approach to swimming lessons, and vary my lessons depending on the child's willingness, and the parent's expectation. I will instruct in all basic skills such as blowing bubbles, swimming underwater, kicking and floating (using different types of equipment to assist the child), but can advance them through the four major strokes and even diving, flip-turning and breathing, etc. My intention is to make the child enjoy what he/she is doing. Credentials I was a 6 year swimming varsity team member. I was a two time 2A State Swimming Champion Team Member (2006, 2007), and member of the 2006 State Champion 200 Medley Relay. I've been named part of the All Dade First Team for Swimming 3 years in a row (2005, 2006, 2007). I've been a competitive swimmer for 12 years. I've been a Junior Olympic Champion, District Champion and Regional Champion many times. I've also competed and won a Junior Olympic Open Water 5km race. I've competed in national and international swim meets and placed well throughout.

Alessandra, 7 lessons with Patrick

Takes time to explain what you need to learn.

Tutored me for macroeconomics. He takes the time to make sure you understand what he is saying. Great tutor.

Robert , 1 lesson with Patrick

Excellent tutor!

He is a great tutor and was able to break down difficult information into a simple form that my son could understand. Love him!

Tina, 13 lessons with Patrick

Thrilled with Patrick!

Patrick did a great job in his first lesson. He took the time to understand my goals and objectives as parent and then he had a very productive lesson with my son. I am very happy to have chosen Patrick as tutor and the most important thing is that my son really liked him.

Vivian, 28 lessons with Patrick

Energetic and encouraging

Patrick was very friendly, energetic and interesting, and my child felt comfortable and at ease during the lesson. He was knowledeable and did a good job with explanations and prompting. We asked him back as the steady tutor.

Great Tutor and Great Experience

We will really miss Mr. Patrick. My son has improved immensely under his instruction. He went from failing 2nd grade to passing his Benchmark test with a 87% score and making S+s in reading.

Ramona, 19 lessons with Patrick

Excellent first session

I compliment Patrick on his patience and skill in tutoring an older client who describes herself as a "techno-dodo." The session was helpful and enjoyable. I look forward to further lessons with Patrick.

AMAZING TUTOR !!!

Patrick has been a gift for our son and our family. My son is not the easiest student to work with and even tried Patrick in the beginning with his defiant behavior. Patrick was firm with him and did not give up on him. He stuck with him when other tutors may have given up and now they seem to have established an excellent working relationship. The lesson reviews keep getting better each week. He is doing so much better in school this year with Patrick's help. I am so grateful that Patrick continues to work with Frankie. I would recommend him to any parent who has a student that is struggling. Thank you Patrick!
