About Patrick

I earned my undergraduate degree from Marquette University, where I majored in Biomedical Sciences, with a minor in Biology. I continued my education at the University of Notre Dame, where I earned my Masters of Education degree in Secondary Science Education. I have been a classroom educator for the past 6 years, where I have worked passionately and dedicated my time and energy to effectively educate and mentor the young adults and students that I have worked with.

I have a wealth of experience in tutoring students at a 1-on-1 level. I am a personable and engaging individual and am extremely confident in my ability to connect with students and reach them at an individual level.

Science is my passion, particularly life science. I specialize in tutoring biology, anatomy, and physiology. I also have experience in teaching chemistry and physical science. Within any subject that I teach, I always strive to craft lessons that are tailored to the student's individual needs. I rely on both formative and informative assessment to monitor student progress. Most importantly, I will challenge each student to reach their academic potential and help them to achieve academic success.


I have an extensive level of expertise in teaching students at the high school and middle school levels. I am an extremely knowledgeable and effective teacher in core concepts across a wide variety of science topics. I use a variety of instructional and assessment techniques and strategies to teach concepts.

Approved subjects

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.

Genetics

I have taught high school biology for the past 6 years and have a wealth of knowledge and teaching experience in the field of genetics. Topics within genetics includes basic probability, mendelian patterns of inheritance, single-and multi-factor genetic crosses, and complex patterns of inheritance. My undergraduate degree is in Biomedical Sciences and Biological Sciences. I am very passionate about genetics and have a wide variety of effective instructional techniques for teaching genetics to students at both the middle-school and high-school level. I use a variety of hands-on devices and models to help students grasp the fundamental concepts of genetics.

Physical Science

I have experience teaching physical science at both the middle school and high school level.
