Bio

I am a lifelong educator with a Master's in Social Studies Education and 20 years of teaching 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 am working towards another Master's degree, in German Language Teaching, to be completed in 2023. This degree program is helping 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.

I also offer organizational skills and time management coaching for adults.

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.

Jumped right in and helped

Patrick focused on a German II test my son had the next day but, in the process, he also helped him identify study approaches that would help him going forward as well.

Charlene, 7 lessons with Patrick

Highly Experienced in Study Skills

My son needed more structure in his study habits. We as parents can only teach them what we know and many times that’s not enough. In his first session my son learned some very doable but yet effective study skills. I like that it was nothing daunting and demonstrated to my son that he could effectively deploy them. We look forward to future sessions with Patrick.

Positive call from his teacher

Got a rare and much appreciated positive email from my son's German teacher - Since he has started working with Patrick he is more confident in class and is participating more than he ever has - grade is going up - everything I could hope for -

Beth, 31 lessons with Patrick

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.

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.
