About Patrick

---Here are the Top Reasons why I am the Highest Rated Tutor in the country:

1) I am a certified teacher in Math and English, with 20 years of classroom teaching / tutoring experience.

2) I have a Master's Degree in Education. [Many Wyzant tutors are accomplished Ivy League test-takers. Relatively few are credentialed, experienced teachers.]

3) In addition to Math and English (including writing), I specialize in Test Prep (SAT / ACT, SSAT / ISEE, etc) and have published Test Prep materials (which I will share with you for free).

4) I am the most in-demand tutor. In recent months, I was hired for more hours than any other Wyzant tutor in Massachusetts. I have been tutoring full-time for years, and will continue to do so. The vast majority of tutors work part-time while they look for a job they truly want.

5) I earned an academic scholarship to college, and graduated summa cum laude as class valedictorian.

6) I offer free introductory sessions or educational evaluations so you can determine that I am the best tutor for you. Please ask for details.

7) In my last year of classroom teaching, I helped my students earn the highest standardized test scores in the school's 50-year history (and have the documentation to prove it).

8) I do what I love: connecting with and helping people to do better than they have ever done before.

9) The best is yet to come FOR and FROM your child.

Here are some highlights from a WyzAnt review (read the entire review from "Mary D" through my profile):

"The BEST Teacher / Tutor I Have EVER Encountered!"

--Patrick helped my son improve his SAT scores from a 1180 to a 1370 in one month!
--That's an improvement from scoring better than about 65% of SAT takers to scoring better than 95% of test takers.
--After that experience, we hired him to work with our daughter to improve her SSAT scores, with similarly astounding results (from the 55th percentile to the 81st percentile!).
--Since Patrick is an experienced math and English teacher, we had him continue to work with both kids in their school work.
--He helped them (and us!) with high school and college applications and essays: which were far more complex and time-consuming than we imagined.
--Although Patrick is a score-boosting machine, he is more than that.
--He has been a friendly, fun, funny, and caring mentor to my children.
--He genuinely enjoys working with them, and my children genuinely appreciate the clarity of his instruction, his great sense of humor, and the great improvements they have made with his help.
--Both of my kids regard Patrick as their favorite (and most effective) teacher ever.
--Lastly, Patrick has been an invaluable resource to us as parents: helping us to understand our children's strengths and areas to improve, as well as how to help them progress.
--In short, Patrick is a one in a million teacher. A true "A+"
