About Patrick

I am a lifelong educator with a Master's in Social Studies Education and over 15 years of experience. I have taught in a wide variety of scenarios, including full-time classroom work in German and history, plus extensive one-on-one tutoring in German, ESL, and learning strategies.

I currently teach English, German, learning skills and more with adult, middle school, and high school students. With me you get an experienced and dedicated educator, equipped with the patience and training necessary to tailor a curriculum to the needs of the individual.

My study skills curriculum draws from a variety of sources, always grounded in solid research, and addresses the following key learning skills:
- reading
- writing
- memorization
- studying
- time management
- personal organization
- metacognition (awareness of how you learn)
- mindset

As a language teacher, I emphasize the ability to communicate orally in the target language, and sessions are planned with this goal in mind. But I customize sessions based on your needs - reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar - you set the target, I'll help you get there. We'll also find the materials and develop the daily regimen you'll need for independent work; lasting language skills come only from steady, daily practice.
