I was a Teaching Assistant for the 3 years during my masters and enjoyed teaching. It gave me an opportunity to not only improve my teaching style, but it was a challenging experience.

About Me
I have MS in Organic Chemistry and during my time in school I tutored students in Chemistry and various other subjects. I was a Teaching Assistant for the 3 years during my masters and enjoyed teaching. It gave me an opportunity to not only improve my teaching style, but it was a challenging experience. In a class setting, it was always important to ensure that every student understood the lesson. Thus, it was imperative to make the lesson interactive and comprehensive as possible.
This is something that I have encompassed in my tutoring. As a former student, I understand what student seeks in tutoring. Having tutored for more than 8 years now, each student I have had is a different experience. Each student is unique in the help that they need and how best you can help them succeed. That’s the great thing about one-on-one tutoring. It’s geared towards you, the student. My approach is geared to enhance your strengths and work on your weaknesses. It is a wonderful thing to see you understand a problem or pass your exam.

Test Prep
Standardized tests are a way of life nowadays. We all have gone through one or several; it’s a process that is easy for others and hard for others. I strive to make it as easy as possible. I offer tutoring for SAT, ACT, SAT II Subject Tests, PSAT, TOEFL, MCAT, PCAT, LSAT, GMAT, GRE, and GRE Chemistry. I have taken some of the highly requested tests such as MCAT, PCAT, and GRE and scored in the top 5 percentile in all three. I also offer help in AP exams in the Sciences and Math.

K-12 Coursework
I specialize in tutoring high school science and math: biology, chemistry, physics, and math through calculus.

College Coursework
I offer tutoring in most chemistry classes from General Chemistry to Physical Chemistry II. I offer first and second-year Biology classes. In Math, I can tutor from Pre-Algebra to Differential Equations. I also offer some general education classes such as Logic and can help in areas such as study skills and time management.

Tutoring
I make your success my priority and the first thing I do is prepare a lesson plan with you. If it’s a class that you are struggling with, we will tackle each problem and it’s my aim to make sure that you understand the material completely. For standardized tests, we will map out a strategy to ensure your success and every session will be maximized to make certain that face the test with confidence. I prepare for each session before we meet, will find extra study materials, and take the time to answer any questions you might have at no additional cost. Our sessions will not only be informative but fun!

As Good an MCAT Tutor As You Can Find

Patrick is as good of a tutor as you can find for the MCAT. He took the time to learn my learning style and would organize our lessons around that fact in very subtle but ultimately helpful ways. When I took my actual MCAT there were little things that showed up that we had gone over that were very low yield where I was very thankful for his help. He always took the time to help me with the emotional aspect of this test (which is super real), and helped me on the strategy aspect more than anything else during my prep. Can't recommend him enough, he'll have your back 100%.

Knowledgeable

Patrick's helping me with organic chem 2. He explains things well and takes his time to do so. He is professional, flexible and willing to listen and explains things until I understand.

Great communication and helpful tuturing

Patrick was great regarding communication and setting everything up for the tutoring session. He made sure to secure as much information before arriving for the session so he was prepared and could make the best use of time. He worked on high school Chemistry and was very helpful. He walked through any challenge areas and also gave some sample problems to figure out to ensure that concepts had been mastered. He was very focused and effective.

tailored lesson

To the rescue! Patrick was prompt to respond and easy to coordinate with. He had my daughter fully engaged for the hour asking and answering questions about chemistry. And by the end, she felt ready for her test. Success!

Patrick is the man

I've used 3 tutors on here specifically for orgo/biochem in relation to the MCAT. Patrick is the best. I will be using him regularly. Look no further, Patrick is your guy.

Great Tutor for Chemistry

Patrick helped me prepare for the MCAT, and was a wonderful tutor. He was very knowledgable about all the different aspects of chemistry that the MCAT covers, and helped me immensely in learning them. He never had a problem answering questions that I would send him over the week outside of our sessions, and was very flexible regarding the times that we could schedule session. I am very glad I chose Patrick to help me prepare for this test!

Great tutor

Patrick worked with my son to prepare for his ACT. He was very knowledgeable in all subject areas and in test taking tips. He prepared specific lessons each session and gave my son specific things to work on in between lessons. This helped my son tremendously and he was able to raise his score 5 points!! We so appreciate Patrick's help and would highly recommend him to others.

Responsive Tutor

Patrick was very responsive to our initial request for a lesson. With very short notice, Patrick scheduled an online session since we couldn't meet in person. He was patient and knowledgeable in helping our son preparation for an Algebra II test.

Amazing tutor! I was lost!

Patrick did amazing! Very patient and gave me time to process and make sure I understood all of the materials! He is very knowledgeable in Biochemistry and chemistry. In college, I have been thrown into a doctor's level biochemistry course with no previous sciences. Patrick did an amazing job catching me up! Recommended his tutoring 100%!
