Hi my name is Patricia. I have always had a fascination with math and science. These subjects offer a never-ending list of puzzles that are just waiting to be solved by any scientist or mathematician that is willing to put in the work. My fascination in math and science is a large part of who I am and that's why I tutor. Tutoring allows me to share my passion with other people and, ultimately, make the world a better place. Additionally, when I witness that sense of accomplishment on one of my student's faces, I can't help but get excited. My tutoring experience includes 7 years of helping students with a variety of subjects, including test-prep, calculus (and a lot of other math like Pre-calculus and Trigonometry), physics, biology, and chemistry. I have personally witnessed how challenging these subjects can be for some students, but my time as a student of the scientific discipline has made me well equipped to handle the difficulty. Along the way, I have picked up many great study skills that I will pass on to the scholars that I tutor.
Through participating in a vigorous engineering curriculum, I learned to critically think about different subjects and how they relate to each other, which I use to tutor and help students understand. I also aim to instill critical thinking techniques when teaching, allowing students to move away from memorization and towards logical thinking and problem solving, which in turn helps them retain the information and score better on exams.
Over my 7 years of tutoring I try to incorporate a comfortable and fun environment to promote learning. I feel that the more comfortable one is when learning, the more beneficial the lesson will be. I try to build my students' confidence in order for them to feel comfortable asking questions and communicating their weaknesses. In this way I try to direct my teaching to each student's learning style and learning rate. I also try to promote good organization and study techniques, which I feel are important in order to focus one's attention and provide for clearer thinking.
I'm currently working towards my MS in Mechanical Engineering and after I finish I plan to move on to obtain my PhD.
I am confident that my experience will be well suited for your goals. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I hope to hear from you soon and to help you reach your goals.

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.
