About Patrick


Bio

I love tutoring students in organic chemistry. I believe I'm one of the best tutors you can get and I offer a lot of value for my services: I often help students that other tutors have been unable to reach. If you feel desperate, contact me.

I emphasize learning how to think and using basic chemical concepts to solve a problem. I focus on mechanisms to teach reactions and I generally shy away from memorization. I enjoy helping students learn the art of synthesis. It is a lot like a...

I love tutoring students in organic chemistry. I believe I'm one of the best tutors you can get and I offer a lot of value for my services: I often help students that other tutors have been unable to reach. If you feel desperate, contact me.

I emphasize learning how to think and using basic chemical concepts to solve a problem. I focus on mechanisms to teach reactions and I generally shy away from memorization. I enjoy helping students learn the art of synthesis. It is a lot like a sophisticated game of tinker toys. If you approach it like that, it can be enjoyable.

While I am mainly focused on students in undergraduate school, I am glad to help students in advanced or graduate level courses. I also help students with the organic chemistry portion of the MCAT.

Chemistry

Chemistry

I have a PhD in Chemistry and have spent thousands of hours helping students in general chemistry and organic chemistry. I can help with basic knowledge from basic theory (bonding, reactions, stoichiometry) to more advanced subjects such as thermochemistry, reaction rates, acidity, redox reactions, electrochemistry, and the basics of organic chemistry.

Organic Chemistry

I have a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Indiana University Bloomington in 1991. I worked at DuPont, Rhone-Poulenc Agrochemie as a research chemist. I have practiced chemical patent law for 20 years and work with research chemists all the time to patent their inventions. I have published a number of papers and have plenty of patents to my name.

Thorough and Patient

I went to Patrick for help for organic chemistry. He was very understanding and helped me out quite a bit with complicated subjects and taught me different ways to approach problems. Highly recommended.

Jamie, 7 lessons with Patrick

Very knowledgeable.

Patrick was very patient even when I was confused on easy concepts. He worked with what times I was available and was ready to teach me each week. He understands what he tutors and uses different explanations and methods so that you can learn however you learn best. I highly recommend him if you are taking an organic chemistry course.

Very patient, great tutor!

Very patient and great tutor! Helps me go back to the fundamental concepts and fill in the missing gaps which is always very helpful!

Jenna, 3 lessons with Patrick

Good session

According to my son, he did a great job explaining and breaking it down, so much so that he had few followup questions for him. We will definitely use Patrick again.

Jenna, 3 lessons with Patrick

Very patient and knowledgeable

Helped me study for my first Chem 114 exam. Shows you the simplest way to solve an equation. Uses great comparisons to help you understand the problem, he's definitely worth every dollar.

Best Tutor I've Had!

Patrick is so knowledgable and extremely helpful. He helps break down the most complex sounding terms/topics so they are easy to understand. He shows you multiple different ways to understand the issues at hand and encourages you to use the knowledge you already know to understand the questions. I would not choose any other tutor for organic chemistry. Do not look any further and go ahead and book Patrick!

Alexandra, 23 lessons with Patrick

Awesome

Patrick is awesome. I really didn't want to give him a review so he always has time for me, however, I want everyone to succeed. I'm taking Organic Chemistry and with him in my corner, I feel absolutely no anxiety. After each session, I feel successful and understand the material. Priceless!

Best tutor I have ever had

Patrick was a great tutor! I would not have passed my class if it wasn't for his help. He is extremely patient, and willing to go over just about anything. I had little to no knowledge of organic chemistry when we started our sessions, and he has helped a tremendous amount. I was apprehensive about an online tutor at first, but it turns out he was the best tutor I've ever had.
