About Patrick


Bio

---Here are the Top Reasons why I am the Highest Rated Tutor in the country, with over 700 perfect five-star ratings in a row:

1) Credentials: I am a certified teacher in Math and English, with a Master's Degree in Education.

2) Teaching experience: I have 20+ years of classroom teaching and tutoring experience, including teaching Test Prep at Harvard University. [Many Wyzant tutors are accomplished Ivy League test-takers. Relatively few are credentialed, experienced teachers.]

---Here are the Top Reasons why I am the Highest Rated Tutor in the country, with over 700 perfect five-star ratings in a row:

2) Teaching experience: I have 20+ years of classroom teaching and tutoring experience, including teaching Test Prep at Harvard University. [Many Wyzant tutors are accomplished Ivy League test-takers. Relatively few are credentialed, experienced teachers.]

3) Specialization: I specialize in Test Prep and have published Test Prep materials (which I will share with you for free).

4) 100% committed: I am the most in-demand tutor. In recent months, I was hired for more hours than any other Wyzant tutor in the state. I have been tutoring full-time for years, and will continue to do so. The vast majority of tutors work part-time while they look for a job they truly want.

5) Diligent: I earned an academic scholarship to college, and graduated summa cum laude as class valedictorian.

6) Try me: I can offer a free introductory online session so you can determine that I am the best tutor for you. Please ask me for details.

7) Proven: In my last year of classroom teaching, I helped my students earn the highest standardized test scores in the school's 50-year history (and have the documentation to prove it).

8) Happy! I do what I love: connecting with and helping people to do better than they have ever done before.

9) The best is yet to come FOR and FROM your child.

Here are some highlights from a Wyzant review (read the entire review from "Mary D" through my profile):

"The BEST Teacher / Tutor I Have EVER Encountered!"

--Patrick helped my son improve his SAT scores from a 1180 to a 1370 in one month!
--That's an improvement from scoring better than about 65% of SAT takers to scoring better than 95% of test takers.
--After that experience, we hired him to work with our daughter to improve her SSAT scores, with similarly astounding results (from the 55th percentile to the 81st percentile!).
--Since Patrick is an experienced math and English teacher, we had him continue to work with both kids in their school work.
--He helped them (and us!) with high school and college applications and essays: which were far more complex and time-consuming than we imagined.
--Although Patrick is a score-boosting machine, he is more than that.
--He has been a friendly, fun, funny, and caring mentor to my children.
--He genuinely enjoys working with them, and my children genuinely appreciate the clarity of his instruction, his great sense of humor, and the great improvements they have made with his help.
--Both of my kids regard Patrick as their favorite (and most effective) teacher ever.
--Lastly, Patrick has been an invaluable resource to us as parents: helping us to understand our children's strengths and areas to improve, as well as how to help them progress.
--In short, Patrick is a one in a million teacher. A true "A+"

Knowledgeable, and helpful

Patrick helped with mistakes in the practice test of reading section, writing section and it went well, hoping my Son gets his much needed last minute preparation for his upcoming SAT.

AMAZING SSAT Tutor

Patrick is an amazing SSAT tutor. I have worked with him over the past 45 days to improve my score. He has taught me a lot of test-specific concepts for succeeding, has developed an extremely helpful guide for taking the SSAT, is extremely knowledgeable in not only explaining the concepts but also in explaining the most efficient way to work through different types of problems. Patrick has been very flexible in scheduling lessons and as a result of working with him I have felt much more confident in the concepts that are being tested.

Super dedicated and super knowledgeable.

He is helping me with standardized testing. I have had previous tutors but I have really connected with Patrick. He is very dedicated to his students and explains concepts in multiple ways so that you understand it. He is fantastic!

Most Brilliant Tutor in My Son's life

Now my son has had five time lessons so far with Patrick including a free lesson. My son has been very happy with his productive explanation on each question in SSAT and his well-developed technology for teaching he uses online. He has well recognized my son's strong point and weak too and has been trying to give him the accurate solution to go to next level and beyond. We feel really lucky to meet such an intelligent teacher like him at Wyzant. I will be back after few more lessons.

Patrick Truly Helped My Daughter Focus In On Lower Level ISEE Math Preparation

Patrick did a wonderful job designing a tutorial program around my daughter's strengths and weaknesses as it relates to ISEE Lower Level Math. He made the work fun, and was very encouraging along the way. He definitely helped my daughter focus on time management for the exam, and showed her some great skills to employ when working on more difficult exam questions. I highly recommend Patrick.

Off to a great start!

Patrick is working with our 14 year old on improving his ssat verbal score by a lot. It will be a difficult few weeks but our son is accepting the challenge by working with Patrick who is motivating, encouraging, and has great ideas that may help him bring his scores up substantially. So far so good.

Karen, 7 lessons with Patrick

Able to identify my daughter’s specific weaknesses

Helped her determine what was keeping her from attaining the high scores she desires from ACT Reading and Math. He also gave her the tools she needs to succeed on the SAT. Look forward to seeing her scores!

1st Session Wonderful

Patrick's first session with my son resulted in a smile on his face. The lesson was interactive and upbeat. Patrick was very patient and kind. Could not recommend more!
