About Patrick


Bio

My name is Patrick. I recently moved back to Minnesota from Colorado, where I got my Mathematics Education degree from the University of Northern Colorado and began my teaching career. In addition to the three years with my own math classroom, I've had about six years of formal tutoring experience, but I've been a patient leader and passionate about learning my entire life.

My name is Patrick. I recently moved back to Minnesota from Colorado, where I got my Mathematics Education degree from the University of Northern Colorado and began my teaching career. In addition to the three years with my own math classroom, I've had about six years of formal tutoring experience, but I've been a patient leader and passionate about learning my entire life. I have tutored students from fifth grade to my fellow university-level math majors. I think that regardless of the level, math can be frustrating, but I have found success leading others on that path of discovery.

My tutoring approach will be to assess what your individual needs are as a student. Some students are preparing for a specific test, some students are trying to catch up with their class, and some students realize that a consistent and deliberate approach to mathematics will meet the most success. Regardless of how you would like help, I am here to make that journey easier. I aim to steer students away from common misconceptions, help set up a problem in such a way that the solution can be discovered, and discuss what methods of mathematics and what methods of study will lead to success.

I hope that your math needs line up with what I am capable of providing, because I always look forward to my next opportunity to open up some math doors for students.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

10 years experience tutoring Algebra, from advanced middle school algebra students to high school Algebra I&II to College Algebra. Complete familiarity with the concepts and several tactics to understand them.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

After tutoring several algebra classes, from middle school accelerated algebra classes to high school Algebra I and Algebra II, to college algebra and Abstract Algebra I & II, I have a well developed familiarity with the concepts that are important and the knowledge that must be developed by students mastering Algebra II.
Geometry,

Geometry

For the past ten years, geometry has been my favorite subject to tutor. From theorems to proofs to spatial reasoning, I have helped hundreds of students on their way to real comprehension. Whether you're currently enrolled or preparing for an upcoming course or test, I am able and enthusiastic to help on your way.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I have taught algebra classes for three years, middle school pre- algebra for two, and have formally tutored both for about ten.
Calculus, Precalculus, SAT Math

ACT Math,

ACT Math

For the past ten years, I have focused on helping students understand Algebra I & II, in addition to Geometry. I have helped students understand their test anxiety and come up with test-taking strategies. I have helped students overcome their confusion and frustration, so that they can walk into their ACT test day feeling capable and prepared. I hope I have the opportunity to help your student in this way.

Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

As a student in my own discrete math class, I mastered combinatorics, probabilities, and modeling appropriate for the course. I have since tutored several students in this same content, but have also seen these concepts pop up in probabilities courses, liberal arts math courses, linear algebra courses, and even abstract algebra courses. Seeing the interconnectedness of these ideas and approaches helps me to guide and present this material in a way that is not only graspable, but relevant to whatever a student's ultimate goals are.

Probability,

Probability

I have adapted several curricula's probability units into my own algebra curriculum, to streamline and emphasize the most important elements to probability. I also tutored my fellow math majors when I was in college as they struggled through their statistics courses.

Amazing teacher!

He explained things in a very easy way and actually made math fun. Also it was very last minute and he was very accommodating. Will definitely work with him again!
