About Patrick


Bio

Having spent the last 12 years helping college students be successful, I enjoy working with individual students who want to improve their own learning. I take a strength based approach with every student rather than looking at "fixing what's wrong".

In addition to English and writing, I specialize in how to prepare for and take exams with confidence, how to improve note taking and how to use your study time more effectively in any subject area. I have also helped hundreds of students...

Having spent the last 12 years helping college students be successful, I enjoy working with individual students who want to improve their own learning. I take a strength based approach with every student rather than looking at "fixing what's wrong".

In addition to English and writing, I specialize in how to prepare for and take exams with confidence, how to improve note taking and how to use your study time more effectively in any subject area. I have also helped hundreds of students improve their papers, college and scholarship application essays and employment applications.

I also work with students of any age who may have dyslexia using the Barton Reading & Spelling System. This requires at least 2 hours per week.

I do require a 24 hour cancellation notice but make up sessions can be scheduled.

I have taught writing at all levels of education and for all types of composition. I work with students on the whole writing process, not just correct grammar and punctuation.

I look forward to hearing from you and would be glad to answer any questions you have before making a decision about a tutor.

American History

As a student of history, I know that history does not have to be dry lists of names and dates. I have worked with hundreds of teacher-education college students who had difficulty passing a pre-certification exam in Social Sciences (History, Political Science, Geography). They not only learned how to read and understand history, they also passed the exam.
