About Patrick


Bio

I've taught in the Peace Corps for 4+ years (St. Vincent, West Indies & Fiji, South Pacific), as well as several years here in NJ; this included General/Basic Math through and including Algebra & Geometry. In addition to my B.S. in Math, I have a B.A. in Political Science and hold a Permanent Secondary (H.S.) Teaching Certificate in Mathematics.

Instead of rehashing the same "methods" you were taught, I try to find new and intuitive ways to explore problems, ideas and relationships ... leading to HOW to think about solving the problem at hand.
Thank You for your consideration, Patrick N.

Subjects

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

I have taught various math subjects and levels; including General Math, Basic Math, Industrial Math, Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry and Trigonometry. I have a B.S. degree in Mathematics and a Secondary School Teaching Certificate. I have also tutored at several levels, including for the GED and SAT.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Instead of rehashing the same "methods" you were previously taught, I will try to find new and intuitive ways to explore problems, ideas and relationships ... leading to HOW to think about solving the problem at hand. We will start with some fundamental/basic math that we can use to "develop" Algebraic concepts. WE will "solve" problems more by understanding them, than by just "doing the math" to get an answer.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

First by ensuring a solid foundation in Basic Math and Algebra I, we will then work on "new" material as necessary. I will try to find new and intuitive ways to explore problems, ideas and relationships ... leading to HOW to think about solving the problem at hand. The goal will be to "solve" problems by understanding them, instead of just "doing the math" to get an answer.
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry requires a "logical" approach to problem solving; it doesn't rely on "method" as much as considering all the relevant information. I will try to find new and intuitive ways to explore problems, ideas and relationships. Since many Geometry problems are combined with solving Algebra equations, I would first review these concepts to ensure they are not a stumbling block.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Our first objective will be to strengthen Basic Math skills in a way that will prepare the student for current & future subject areas (Algebra, Geometry, etc.). I will try to find new and intuitive ways to explore problems, ideas and relationships. A main goal will be linking past skills with current/future skills.
SAT Math

SAT Math

My experiences teaching many different math classes (subjects & levels) allow me to analyze most SAT problems in ways that don't rely on "methods" alone. I try to find new and intuitive ways to explore problems, ideas and relationships. I will also include test taking techniques useful in passing the SAT.

Probability

Simple probability requires a "mind's eye" approach, a way to mentally visualize the events. I will try to find new and intuitive ways to explore problems, ideas and relationships.
