About Patrick

I am a former small businessman who has combined his practical business experienced with a scholarly study of economics/finance. I have an excellent ability to explain complicated concepts in economics and statistics to undergrads and high school students. I have strong history/political science knowledge. I'm also a skilled writer who can help students polish their written assignments.

In addition, I have tutored elementary school children whose native language was not English.

I have nearly four decades experience managing businesses in wide variety of industries. I combined that experience with a scholarly study of economics. I am in daily contact with professional economists who are affiliated with leading universities in the USA (several of whom are prominent in the profession). I'm considered an expert on network effects/path dependence, transportation and infrastructure repair. I have a strong knowledge of monetary policy and interest rates.

I am amiable...low key...patient. I believe in starting with basics and building from there. I'm not a task master, but one who encourages.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Have taken over distressed/failing businesses and restructured them, as well as having built new businesses from the ground up.

I have spoken to high school economics classes, tutored college students in economics and statistics, given speeches to business groups, advised investors as a professional (NASD Series 7 license). My scholarly study of economics has been combined with a small business career in which I have built new businesses and expanded existing ones, as well as rescued some failing ones.
