## Knowlegable and patient tutor

Helena, 41 lessons with PatrickI have met with Patrick for help in college Calculus 2 and very happy I did so. Patrick is extremely knowledgeable and patient in reviewing and explaining the material with me and also clarifying material that I needed help understanding. I am very glad to have Patrick as my tutor and knowing with his help this subject will be better understood !!!!

I have a degree in Applied Mathematics from Southern New Hampshire University and have been a tutor for 20 years, specializing in standardized tests, high school and college math, high school science, college physics, and tutoring many other subjects including Excel, Word, computer programming, and literary analysis/essay writing.

My favorite subjects to tutor are Pre-calc, Calc 1 and 2, programming (various languages), and statistics. These subjects tend to have the most "fun" and creative...

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

I have been tutoring all high school and college math courses, and many science courses, for the past 20 years with students of all abilities, from those who have a phobia of math to those who are looking for a little edge to get them into a top-tier college/graduate school, including Algebra 1. I generally use the students' current knowledge and ask probing questions to get them to teach themselves the material and bring in experiences to facilitate learning (I find this Socratic method works best for retention), but, when needed, will lecture.

## Great AP Stats Tutor

My daughter has worked with Patrick a number of times and we highly recommend him. This time he has been helping her prepare for her AP Stats exam. He has been extremely helpful with helping her get prepared and reduce some of the testing anxiety.

Jennifer, 7 lessons with Patrick

## Great experience

Patrick was able to meet with my daughter right away and took the time to explain everything she was confused about in her Algebra 2 class. We will definitely use him again.

Melissa, 4 lessons with Patrick

## Tutoring

We went over word problems and system of equations! Such a great help always! I learned how to set up an equation for different word problems! Also I learned how to figure out where to start when it comes to system of equations

Emilia, 10 lessons with Patrick

## Understands the needs of students with ADHD

Patrick was extra helpful with preparing my daughter for her SAT. He was able to work with her in a way that she was able to grasp the concepts easily and put some of the test taking anxiety at ease. She looks forward to her next lesson.

Jennifer, 7 lessons with Patrick

## Great start

Although Patrick has only provided two tutoring sessions, our daughter feels more confident in the subject matter. He has a great disposition and patience for teaching Calculus.

Alicia, 27 lessons with Patrick

## Amazing tutor amazing results

Patrick took my son from a failing grade in precalculus. I would recommend him to anyone. He is an amazing tutor and definitely works with the student based on their ability to learn.

Julie, 6 lessons with Patrick

## Very helpful

Patrick has been very effective at explaining algebra and providing tips on how to approach calculations. Also very helpful on other math and science subjects.

Susan, 54 lessons with Patrick

## Knowledgable

Thank you for tutoring my daughter and preparing her for her the Praxis test- My daughter said Patrick was helpful and provided useful test taking strategies- He was thorough and went over important concepts regarding the Praxis test
