About Patrick

I am an Ohio licensed science teacher, which requires a background check for every renewal. I've been teaching 9th grade science for 9 years.

Content of my current class includes Ohio Revised Academic Standards, AKA Common Core. Which will help prepare students to pass the OGT science test and future end of course exams.

Current subjects include: motion, energy, waves, atomic structure, periodic table, chemical formulas and reactions, as well as universe and star formation.

I am also certified to teach biology, environment, astronomy, and geology.

Students will be required to read and complete assignments based on their school's text as well as perform various lab activities either at home, during session meetings or as part of a computer simulation.

Assessments will be given to mark student's progress.

I request anyone with previous itemized test scores to bring them to our first meeting. This should provide information to determine specific areas of need.

I believe if the state says I'm qualified to teach in public education, I KNOW I qualified to tutor.

Test Preparation:
ACT Science

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Science

The ACT science test covers several science subjects just like the OGT tests. Many of the questions refer to a reading passage and pertain to more than just one science discipline. This requires the integration of basic knowledge from all sciences including physical, life and earth and environmental. All of which I have taken in college or have taught for 9 years. I also taught a summer session of OGT test prep. I have been the science instructor for science credit recovery programs for 5 years.

Astronomy

I have taken several college courses in the subject as part of my Earth/Space ED major. I have taught various content within the subject for 9 years. I have accumulated various astronomy simulations and have my own telescope for direct celestial observations.

Chemistry

I have been teaching science at a public high school loft 9 years. Part of the content I teach includes the chemistry of the Common Core. My licensure is 7-12 Earth/space and I've complete several courses in college chem.

Ecology

I have an Earth/Space teaching degree, grades 7-12. A major part of the coursework came within the Environmental Sciences. As part of the college education I have also taken 15+ hours of Biology. I am state certified to environmental science AKA ecology.

Geology

I have taken several college courses in the subject as part of my Earth/Space ED major. Most of my coursework in college falls under the geology and environment heading. I have taught various content within the subject for 9 years. I also served the last 5 years as the science instructor for the science credit recovery program.

Physical Science

I have taken several college courses in the subject as part of my Earth/Space ED major. I have taught all of content as it applies to the Ohio standards for 9 years. With this experience I have accumulated and have access to equipment for various lab exercises. For the last 5 years, I have served as the science instructor for the science credit recovery program.
