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 am also a lifelong student. In fact, I have recently begun another Master's program, this one in German Language Teaching. This degree program will help me improve my understanding of language learning and teaching, as well as my own German-language skills. And that means more value for my students.

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.

Knowledgeable and Patient

We haven't been with Patrick for long but are encouraged by his approach in helping our son to look at things differently and finding the tools to help him be more self reliant and organized.

Alyssa, 9 lessons with Patrick

Study skills & organization

My daughter is transitioning to high school and also from textbooks to all online courses including mostly honors and AP classes. She had missed a summer week-long program on organization and study skills and Patrick was able to cover in the hour they spent together a number of helpful tips and strategies for studying in ways that will be more productive as well as how to be proactively intentional with how she organizes all of her online work. She thought that the time spent with Patrick was very helpful and appreciated that he was kind and yet very direct and to the point with offering suggestions and ways for her to be more intentional about actively studying and how to manage organization. Great organization and study skills tutor!

Perfect Match

Patrick was knowledgeable and patient. He asked in-depth questions that led to a simple, yet specific plan of action that my son helped create. Looking forward to a continued relationship.

David, 31 lessons with Patrick

Introduction session

This first session was just an introduction to study skills and time management. Patrick was very attentive to my son's background, his habits and his struggles. It was a good start and we'll plan more sessions.

Stefaan, 37 lessons with Patrick

Excellent teacher!

My son was so excited after his first lesson! He is a freshman in high school and although he had asked for additional help with his German studies, I think he was unsure of what to expect from a tutor and hesitant about taking the time out of his already heavy schedule for planned lessons. He just had his first lesson with Patrick and was thrilled. Together, they gauged where he was in his learning, determined his biggest challenges and immediately set to work. My son mastered a chunk of vocabulary and had a study plan to help him when working on his own. He walked away with confidence and enthusiasm and truly looking forward to his next lesson with Patrick. In his words, "He is so nice and an excellent teacher!"...We couldn't be more impressed, and highly recommend working with Patrick.

He was very patient, understanding, and thorough. He is very intelligent, detailed, positive attitude . He come up with frequent questions abut title of the essay and encourages my son to summarize and use his own word ,and I would definitely recommend him.

Parween, 1 lesson with Patrick

Very patient! My son responds well to him.

Thank you for keeping at him. We are reinforcing the same messages with him. Writing down assignments, active studying, etc.

Jayne, 20 lessons with Patrick

Knowledgeable tutor!!

Patrick tutored my 15-year-old in German online. I was skeptical about online but she loved it. And so did I as she did very well on her German test. Wyzant has great online tools and I’d recommend it anytime.

Jennifer, 2 lessons with Patrick

Provided practical skills for German AP

Patrick was an amazingly organized tutor with very precise structure in order to achieve the best results in a very short period of time. He is always flexible and friendly. We enjoyed him very much and would recommend him to any one that needs a solid learning foundation.
