Hi! I'm an experienced tutor and Financial Analyst / Accountant with over ten years of accounting/finance and business administration work in both a Fortune 100 company and a federal government cabinet level agency.

Since joining Wyzant's platform, I've tutored over 570 hours and 75+ students, helping each to achieve their learning goals. I look forward to the opportunity to do the same with you!

-----My Education-----
Bachelor's degree Cum Laude in Business Administration, focusing on International Economics and Finance from the Catholic University of America, in Washington, D.C.
Master's degree in Accountancy from George Washington University.
Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from George Washington University.
Active Certified Public Accountant(CPA) license
Active Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) certification

-----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!

-----My Policies-----
I am extremely generous when it comes to my lessons. If we have an hour session, you will always receive the full 60 minutes, and as many students will attest, I usually run a few minutes over (if you have the time too, of course!)

I'm prompt to my sessions and expect my students to do the same. At the same time I'm flexible and know things come up we can't avoid. I have an 8 hour cancellation policy. Missed sessions are charged at 50% of the agreed upon rate.

For in person tutoring, I only meet in public locations only (e.g. a library, Starbucks, university classrooms). This is for both ease of tutoring (quiet and whiteboards) and comfort for both tutor and student. Please also see my travel policies regarding rates. Due to time it takes to reach students in the D.C. Metro Area, my rate compensates for this. I am happy to switch between in-person and online depending on your needs.

If you have any questions, please ask! I look forward to working with you!
In Knowledge,

Test Preparation

AFOQT,

AFOQT

After having worked with multiple ASVAB students, the AFOQT is similar in structure and content. Specifically with the math section, I have a deep understanding of test strategies (having also tutored students in the CPA exam and the GMAT exam). The strong combination of test preparation work as well as understand the needs of military students, or those looking to join the military allows me to tutor this subject. I also have a strong educational background and have a significant amount of time tutoring, indicating that not only can I tutor the subject, but in general, I am an experienced tutor. My education: Bachelor's degree Cum Laude in Business Administration, focusing on International Economics and Finance from the Catholic University of America, Master's degree in Accountancy from the George Washington University. Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from George Washington University. Active Certified Public Accountant (CPA) license.
ASVAB

ASVAB

I scored a 94 on the ASVAB exam. Assisted students go from the low 40s on the exam up to a 70 in three weeks. Extensive knowledge of testing strategies, specific to the ASVAB. Attention to detail, encouraging and purpose driven lessons. All subjects covered with a particular emphasis on the core sections including math and verbal.

Accounting Tutor

Today was my first session with Patrick. He sat down and covered everything I was having trouble with. He was able to take the concepts and simplify them for me. Looking forward to my next lesson. I believe this is going to pay dividends in helping me pass and progressing in my MBA program.

Christopher, 4 lessons with Patrick

Patient teacher!

Patrick really helped slow things down and gave as much detail as I needed for things to click. He took time to spell things out when he could see I was struggling, but didn’t waste time on things I understood. The lesson flew by, and he made difficult finance problems seem easy!

Lindsay, 6 lessons with Patrick

Knowledgeable, prepared, and helpful

Patrick helped me with job cost schedules, manufacturing overhead and journal entries. I was worried about doing online tutoring but Patrick took the extra step to walk me through the platform so the lesson went really smoothly. On the subject matter, he made it easy to understand and I got an A on my quiz!

I can actually see why he is rated so high

Patrick is an excellent tutor!!! He explains and he listens. He is very informative and just a friendly person. He explains what he teaches and gives examples that a student can understand. He is prompt and very very friendly. No question is a dumb question. He is very patient and explains everything. He will even forward you articles on topics your working on if your interested.

An extremely knowledgeable professional

Patrick is an amazing teacher who truly cares; patiently taught me the accounting fundamentals, giving me the capability to do them independently. He even shifted his own schedule to provide support. I personally and highly recommend his services for any assistance!

John, 2 lessons with Patrick

Outstanding!

Patrick is the absolute BEST ! When I first came to him I had a score of 29 on my practice ASVAB. After only about 2-3 tutoring sessions I went to retake the practice test and got a 42. After 5-6 tutoring sessions I felt ready to take my ASVAB and received a 66 on my final test !! All thanks to Patrick !
