About Patrick

I'm a big fan of the adage “What we learn with pleasure we never forget”. As a teacher, I make sure that each of my students enjoys the subject that they learn.

My highest degree is MS in Computer science that I received in the spring of 2003 from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. After school I used to mentor younger students and friends in C family programming languages.

My friends often have me proofread and debug their code. During my graduation, I build an online records management system for a hospital that helped me in understanding how different technologies actually work. My first job after school involved porting a C/C++ application from one flavor of UNIX to another.

There was a lot of troubleshooting and debugging involved that helped me more than the development I did in later years in my career. My second job was at a startup where a software that had to be developed ground up - a mobile web server. Throughout my career, I have worked on lots of platforms, am hands-on with UNIX and Windows, lots of programming/web/scripting languages, and databases.

Once I was given a responsibility by the organization to train new employees on Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and on different programming languages. I really enjoyed it and learnt that teaching is my best talent. Thereafter, I started teaching high school kids and graduates on weekends. I successfully mentored a group of students in their course projects. Since, the last four years I moved to full time tutoring. Since, it is quite difficult to do a dedicated teaching at a physical location as it involve lots of travelling, so I thought an online platform such as Wyzant would work best for me.

Proficient in C, C++, Computer Science, General Computer, Java, Database and other applications

I have more than 10 years of programming experience. I learnt how as a teacher, I need to connect the dots for my students by bringing in what I learnt building and testing software myself. I always tell all my students - don't just learn, apply! Whatever I teach you is meaningless till you use it in the real world, may it be as a project, product, service or just a demonstration. I always prepare myself to go extra mile for my students and encourage them to be more engaged in self learning.

For my students, I like to begin with the theory and like to work with the student according to the immediate school requirements. I like to reinforce the learning by blending in a bit of practicality by showing example code. I like giving homework and taking feedback in the beginning of the next class. I love playing games like DOTA, COD, AOH and AOE. These strategic games help in boosting mind power and increase the efficiency and I can pass on those skills to my students. I also do lots of research everyday so as to provide the most recent updates on the computation topics. I believe that a personalized approach works best for the students. When you will work one on one with me I assure you that together we can bring out the best in you.

Thanks for reading. Have a good day!!!
