-----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!

amazing!!

Patrick helped me go over my midterm study guide and make sense of budgets. He also helped me with previous homework problems that I needed a refresher on! Thank you!!

Vanessa, 2 lessons with Patrick

amazing!!

Patrick helped me learn contribution margins, break even, and margin of safety! He really helped me on concepts I was confused about. I will definitely schedule another session with him!

Vanessa, 2 lessons with Patrick

Helpful, patient, and flexible with scheduling

It was easy to make arrangements for tutoring. Patrick was responsive, reviewing materials before the lesson so he was prepared, and did a great job explaining concepts!

Carolyn, 4 lessons with Patrick

Amazing Tutor!!

Patrick went above and beyond to help me with Cost Accounting. I had a online professor that was non-existent and was learning completely on my own. Weekly sessions with Patrick helped me tremendously! If you are an accounting major, look no further, Patrick is the tutor you need!

Dianie, 13 lessons with Patrick

Amazing session covering material for MBA level 'Finance' mid-term!

Patrick is hands down the best tutor I've experienced on Wyzant. Being in a Master's level program I have found it challenging to find tutors that can teach on that level and cover the needed material. Patrick absolutely knows his stuff when it comes to Finance. He helped to cover topics thoroughly, took his time explaining concepts, and made sure I was following along and understood the material. I highly recommend Patrick for any of your Finance/Accounting needs.

A+ Tutor with highest quality of customer service!

Patrick is a patient and knowledgeable tutor with excellent customer service. I had two tutoring sessions, which he helped me complete my financial business analysis project using Microsoft excel. Patrick was able to explain difficult concepts effectively. Regarding Microsoft excel, he is a wizard in creating charts and using formulas in excel. Great service! Thank you again, Patrick!

Terrific tutor!

My son was struggling to pass his Finance class with it being virtual during covid. Patrick tutored him twice prior to his final and he got a high B on the final! Highly recommend Patrick!

Knowledgeable and Flexible tutor

I am so happy I found Patrick right when I was having no luck on Wyzant with finding a quality Finance Tutor. I had two weeks left for my Final Exam and he brought me up to speed and figured out the Final Sample Exam with me and what is expected of me. I recommend him for any of your Finance tutoring needs as he is flexible with days and times and is very patient with you, especially a beginner like me. Thanks Patrick!

Jenny, 6 lessons with Patrick

Patrick is the man.

I have had such a great experience with Patrick so far. He is very patient and understands Master's level accounting which is more than I can say for many tutors I previously worked with (many of them were just as stumped as I was). I digress, he was able to adapt to my learning style almost immediately. He is so easy to work with and actually makes accounting enjoyable. I just can't recommend him enough! He is worth every penny!
