-----About My Tutoring-----
I'm passionate about helping students learn business topics ranging from accounting to statistics, management to finance. I enjoy teaching these topics to students who don't normally take accounting, finance, or economics courses. Many of my students are in nursing, public policy or other degree programs.

I also have experience and enjoy tutoring the GMAT, ASVAB and GED exams and the Microsoft suite including Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word. For these subjects, you'll find my approach to be both thorough and supportive. I won't rush you through topics you don't understand, but won't waste time on things you already know.

I work with you one on one to understand your learning style, goals and timelines. I design a tutoring plan that fits your individual needs and ensure you are supported each step of the way. I'm an encouraging and supportive individual and I look forward to helping you achieve your learning and life goals!

Great Tutor

Patrick is a great tutor and I definitely recommend him. Especially for people like myself who have no prior accounting background and are in an MBA accounting course. He explained things really well in terms that I could understand and was very patient.
