About Patrick


Bio

Hello, my name is Patrick. I graduated Cum Laude with a physics degree and a math minor from Kansas State University. I am starting a graduate program in fall in Applied Mathematics. I have tutored through various private companies, as a one on one personal tutor, and through the University for over the last seven years.

Hello, my name is Patrick. I graduated Cum Laude with a physics degree and a math minor from Kansas State University. I am starting a graduate program in fall in Applied Mathematics. I have tutored through various private companies, as a one on one personal tutor, and through the University for over the last seven years.

During this time, I have tutored Geometry, Algebra, College Algebra, Calculus 1, Calculus 2, Calculus 3, Differential Equations, Partial Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra, Group Theory, Proofs, Analysis, Linear Programming, High School Physics, College Physics, Engineering Physics, Electromagnetism, Advanced Classical Mechanics, and Quantum Mechanics.

When tutoring these topics, I try to focus on how to related the content covered in a given class to topics the student might find interesting. I often find students learn abstract math better when they have plenty of concrete examples to look back at. In terms of physics, I like to have demonstrations ready to help explain topics to students (whenever possible).

A typical tutoring session starts with the student and myself reviewing the relevant definitions or formulas. If the student is confused about the specific formula or definition, we will spend session time clarifying these relevant information. After that, I will usually provide an example of each formula in use. After that, we will work through any practice problems the student is having difficulty with. If needed, I also will provide additional practice problems.

In addition to my experiences tutoring math and physics, I also work as a gigging musician and as a guitar teacher. While I don't imagine too many of my students needing help with music theory, I have also tutored college level music theory and I feel comfortable teaching jazz theory and classical theory to students as well.

Chemistry,

Chemistry

I have tutored chemistry for the past 7 years, and I also have a strong background in math due to my physics degree and math minor.
Physics,

Physics

I graduated with a physics degree in May 2020. I have tutored introductory college level physics since fall of 2014. I have also tutored more advanced topics over the years, and at this point I have tutored all of the physics classes an undergraduate physics major will usually take (Classical Mechanics, Special relativity, Quantum Mechanics, Electromagnetism, and Thermodynamics) at one point or another. On top of this, I also have a year of experience working in an optics lab, and can relate knowledge from physics courses to research.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have tutored this course since Fall 2014 (My Junior year of high school). I used topics from precalculus in every single math and physics course I took in college. I regularly use topics from this course when doing data analysis as well.
SAT Math

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

When I took Ordinary Differential Equations (ODE) I received an A. In my Partial Differential Equations (PDE) class I have also received an A. Since then, I have tutored both classes for the better part of four years. I regularly used topics from both classes when I was involved with research, and I use topics from both courses when doing advanced physics (Electromagnetism, Quantum Mechanics, and Advanced Classical Mechanics).
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

This is my favorite course to tutor, and in the past two years I have tutored 20-30 separate students in Linear Algebra alone (through private tutoring and in person tutoring). In addition, I used linear algebra a lot in my advanced physics and math courses as well as in my optics research.
