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

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!

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.

Great tutor! Kind and knowledgeable

He prepared my son for his AP Bio test. He is patient and experienced and explained him all the contents with detail. I hope he continues helping my son until he takes his AP test.

Maria, 11 lessons with Dr. Patrick

Fantastic tutor! Very to the point and very knowledgeable!

Dr. Patrick explanations enabled my daughter to understand and really grasp material which was previously confusing for her - simply put, his explanations make sense and make topics more clear. He keeps his lesson effective, engaging and fun. My daughter was able to stay focus. We definitely plan to keep working with Dr. Patrick.

Great experience with Dr. Patrick

I want to thank Dr. Patrick for his time and effort in teaching me the skills needed to succeed in College Chemistry. He is an exceptional tutor; his knowledge of the subject matter and approach to explaining complex science concepts are unparalleled. Dr. Patrick is very approachable and patient, and if you have questions about the subject, he is willing and happy to answer each of them. Dr. Patrick explains, ties relative concepts, and applies them to real life. His lesson plans are very detailed and on point. Dr. Patrick is straightforward in communicating within setting up a tutoring session. Still, it's pretty helpful to reach out ahead of time, as he gets busy going into the workweek. I did about ten tutoring sessions with him, and I must say that my understanding of chemistry topics improved and built upon following each session. Dr. Patrick made a considerable difference for me; my knowledge was basic when I first started. However, after all the sessions, my understanding of chemistry was proficient. He was engaging, provided plenty of practice problems to strengthen my knowledge, and even walked through examples If I needed it. Every lesson was personalized and acted as a review of the concepts we covered in class. Time flew by with each lesson. I got a lot out of the tutoring session with Patrick. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great tutor in chemistry or other science classes.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor!

Is a knowledgeable, resourceful tutor. Make sure his students thoroughly understand the material. Reviewed the concepts of moles proportions in a neutralization reaction, double replacement with two ionic compounds soluble in water, electrochemistry, and oxidation/reduction problems.

Lana, 6 lessons with Dr. Patrick

If you need help use Dr.Patrick.

Dr. Patrick and I went over both cellular respiration and fermentation. I think the thing that helped me the most was that Dr. Patrick had his own lecture slides and could reteach me the whole thing with material that he understood. He also did a fantastic job of breaking down complex topics into simple to understand ideas. If you are a college student who needs help with biology, like I was and still am, I highly recommend using him. I will most definitely use him again

Class A Professor

Dr Patrick previously tutored my college son who is now graduating from Biomedical Engineering. He surely played an important role in my older son’s academic performance . I’m glad he’s able to accommodate again my tutorial request for my younger son in freshman HS this time. Dr Patrick made the pre-AP Biology easier for him to understand. I will only settle for Dr Patrick for any Sciences. He obviously has a vast knowledge in this area but what my 2 sons like most about him is his art of teaching. He is very patient and systematic.

Lorelei, 67 lessons with Dr. Patrick

Human Biochemistry and Cell Biology

Dr. Patrick is truly an incredible college biochemistry tutor! He's just started working with my son who's taking Human Biochemistry and Cell Biology and, although he's only worked with my son just recently, my son has said Dr. Patrick has already helped him tremendously! He's very professional, flexible, extremely knowledable and explains very complicated material in a way that is much easier to understand! My son is a pre med major and will be working with Dr Patrick throughout the semester as his grades in these 2 classes are extremely important. My son can't say enough good things about him...Patrick is absolutely incredible!
