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 also supervised and trained students in all the steps from thinking and building a scientific project around various scientific disciplines (Chemistry and Life Sciences), to obtaining and interpreting preliminary data and writing a successful competitive fellowship application. Under my

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I am very patient and prepare all my classes in advance in order to ensure that each of my students receive individualized attention, and that each student's specific learning needs are catered to. After explaining the concepts, training exercises are always part of a tutoring session, where everything is explained in depth on how to apply those concepts and avoid mistakes. With a Master's Degree in Math and 20 years of experience in tutoring concepts from Pre-Algebra to Pre-Calculus, I deliver a clear message, which combined with patience, understanding of my students’ needs, and a method of working and learning, builds up confidence and drive success, also preparing them for the next level in their career. I hope to work with you soon!
Biology,

Biology

With an MS and a PhD in Biology, and more than a dozen international scientific publications in the field, I am very well prepared to train you in any Biology subjects. Whether you need help with Honors or AP Biology, or would like to get into a medical program (MD, Pharmacy, Dental, Nursing...etc.), I will provide you with the tools necessary to be successful. I am looking forward to working with you.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

Is Chemistry lowering your GPA? Do you need a better understanding of complex chemical concepts? I am your tutor! Wherever you are in the country! I know and teach the subject perfectly. My students have scored as high as 99% on their finals. After each class you will know your concepts and will be able to apply them very quickly to Quizzes, Tests and Finals. With an MS and a PhD, and more than 15 years of experience in research and teaching in Biochemistry, I am very well trained in the field to guide you through all the difficulties you may have, and prepare you efficiently for your exams. I can help you succeed. I have published a dozen scientific publications in Biochemistry and Cell Biology, and can also help you with your reading and writing of scientific documents.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I love teaching Basic Math and Pre-Algebra because they are the building blocks of Mathematics. Working with positive and negative numbers (Arithmetic) is a pre-requisite before studying Algebra which introduces the notion of variables (when a symbol represents numbers). Too many students have not acquired these fundamental knowledges, and the negative impact is also seen many years later in high school and college. Pre-Algebra is about mastering the sets of numbers and the order of operations they are going to be involved in: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division. Subtractions, and specially divisions which can take the form of a fraction, a mixed number or a decimal are what causes the most issues. Exponents, Square roots and Absolute values are concepts that need to be clearly explained as they are source of confusion that can last for a long time. When the four operations are fully understood, then comes the time to work with Percents and word problems with Fractions, Decimals and Percents. At this stage of the curriculum, students found difficult how to translate English language into Mathematical language, and they need proper guidance on how to address these questions. This type of translation will come back later with PSAT and SAT tests, as a prerequisite to successfully enter college. Basic Geometry will then encompass the use of Arithmetic to find out how to measure, calculate and recognize different shapes in 2 and 3 dimensions. With a Master's Degree in Math and 20 years of experience in tutoring concepts from Pre-Algebra to Pre-Calculus, I deliver a clear message, which combined with patience, understanding of my students’ needs, and a method of working and learning, builds up confidence and drive success, also preparing them for the next level in their career.

Excellent College Chemistry Tutor

My son finds sessions with Dr. Patrick very helpful. He breaks concepts down and explains things in a way that my son understands. My son feels like he learns more from his weekly sessions with Dr. Patrick than he does from chemistry class!

Monica, 17 lessons with Dr. Patrick

Great Tutor

My son enjoyed his session with Dr. Patrick. He really helped him solidify the concepts for his PreAP Chemistry test. Would definitely seek him out again.

Jennifer, 4 lessons with Dr. Patrick

Amazing AP Chemistry tutor

Dr. Patrick helped me understand the notions that the school teacher left unclear. He is patient, thorough and very knowledgeable. When I needed an extra session before a test, he always found some time. The problems I solved with him boosted my confidence and my grades. Thank you so much !
