Whatever course in Science (Chemistry, Biology, Biochemistry, Physiology, Pharmacology and Cell Biology), Biotechnology (genetic engineering, health care, agriculture), Math (Prealgebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Precalculus, Calculus), and Scientific writing (explaining how a scientific paper should be structured, what type of sentences scientific writing requires, how to synthesis information, how to present data (writing, graphs...etc), how to discuss data, references) you need help with, my long professional experience in the subjects will help you reach your goals. From high school to college studies, I am also specialized in preparing specific subjects such as Honors and AP programs, and students and adults who wish to pursue a career in the medical field (MCAT, DAT, Nursing, PA, Physical Therapy, etc.).
I am a professional tutor with the highest degree of education. I also dedicate my time to prepare the classes thoroughly before the tutoring. Do not hesitate to contact me, I will be glad to assist you.
Here is a bit of my biography. Talk to you soon!
After a master's degree in Mathematics and Biochemistry, I was awarded two competitive national fellowships to teach for 4 years in a European university and study for a PhD in Biology and Biochemistry. After graduating with highest distinction, I took a position as a Postdoctoral fellow at UNC-Chapel Hill, where I undertook a 5-year research project in Biology and Biochemistry, which received a U.S. federal grant from the National Institutes of Health. I was then promoted to Research Assistant Professor, continued to teach Biology and Biochemistry at UNC for 4 years, and was the award winner of a year-round in-house oral presentation research contest in my Department.
I then joined the Biotechnology industry, as a researcher in the Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, with a competitive fellowship from the North Carolina Biotechnology Center. I worked on cloning, identifying and expressing new genes.

A solid, deeply knowledgeable, friendly, professional, no-nonsense, meticulous, supportive, first-rate tutor!
Dr. Patrick helped my son with his AP Chemistry preparation over many lessons during the 2018-19 academic year. In the beginning, we tried several tutors, many of which were excellent. But, from the very first lesson to the very last one, we were confident that Dr. Patrick was the best tutor for my son due to his solid teaching experience, deep knowledge of the subject and excellent temperament for the role. He has a friendly, professional, no-nonsense demeanor. We found him to be meticulous in his teaching and constructive in the advice he provided. He was always supportive, encouraging and gave invaluable insights regarding what the examiners were looking for in their answers. If you are looking for a quick, superficial review of the main concepts in AP Chemistry, perhaps Dr. Patrick is not the right one for you. He is in-depth and thorough and will not give platitudes just to make you feel good if he believes you haven’t yet “got it”. But, if you are looking for someone who will try hard to ensure that you really understand the concepts, then I don’t know of anyone better than Dr. Patrick--he is simply first-rate.Gary, 29 lessons with Dr. PatrickTutor responded:
AP CHEMISTRY - Dear Gary, I am very grateful for your very kind and thorough testimony of your experience with my tutoring sessions. Thank you for taking the time of doing it. Also, I would like to thank you for providing your son with the necessary number of hours of tutoring so we were able to go through the difficult concepts a student has to face in AP Chemistry. Kind Regards Dr. Patrick
Extremely knowledgeable and flexible tutor
We have two children in different grades and Dr. Patrick was an excellent choice for both of them. My daughter was very passionate about Biology and had perfect grades, but with Dr. Patrick's help she became so good No.1 and she obtained the prize for excellence in AP Biology of her school. My son is interested in Chemistry, but his Chemistry teacher left him with many unanswered questions and his AP Chemistry teacher declared that she only teaches for a 3. Thankfully Dr. Patrick give him confidence and cleared all the questions my son had. Dr. Patrick's knowledge as well as his calm and composed personality helped both of our children strive. Once the AP exams format changed this year he reacted very quickly. His manner of teaching for the FRQ AP questions, really helped in the context of the changed AP exams. Thank you.M, 10 lessons with Dr. PatrickTutor responded:
AP BIOLOGY, AP CHEMISTRY - Dear Andrea, I am thrilled to hear that your daughter got a 5 at the AP Biology exam, along with the "one and only" AP Biology prize of the school! . Congratulations! Thank you for entrusting your son and daughter to me in the preparation of the AP Chemistry exam as well. Both are already making good progress this summer and will be ahead of the AP Chem program when school starts again. Warmest regards Dr. Patrick
Amazing Biochemistry Tutor
Patrick is the main reason why I was able to pass Biochemistry with an excellent comprehension on the subject. He always had a lot of availability for me and his other students, allowing him to take his time and make sure I understood every concept clearly. He’s very patient and friendly and doesn’t give up until you understand a problem perfectly. I 100% guarantee that you will do amazingly in Biochem if you choose Patrick as your tutor!Miguel , 52 lessons with Dr. PatrickTutor responded:
