I am an experienced, expert tutor who is passionate about helping his students learn how to improve their writing and to lift their grades and test scores in a variety of different subject areas. What matters most to me is that you are excited to learn. I believe that excitement will carry you wherever you want to go in life!

I want to benefit as many students as I can and pride myself on being available in a pinch. I am also available for long term tutoring. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson!

Patrick Lenahan has been tutoring our son, now 15, for over 6 years.
Since reading and writing have become more difficult for students with continual access to the internet and video, we are happy that Patrick has selected appropriate books for our son to read aloud, reflect on, discuss, and write about.
Patrick then reviews and comment closely on our son’s writing. This has lead to a broader interest in reading and better writing skills overall. Our son has developed better analytical skills in reading different types of writing - expository, persuasive, narrative, and descriptive. This has translated into better writing skills in those areas as well.
We’re very happy with Patrick as our son’s tutor and recommend him wholeheartedly and without reservation.

Frequently asked questions

I establish trust with new students so that they know I'm in their corner, while also defining their strengths and weaknesses so as to best work toward their goals.  I believe in holding students accountable yet try to keep our sessions fun.

I have been tutoring for 10 years.  I was first trained at C2 Education and have since developed my own teaching style. 

For Test Prep and college counseling I start at $125/hr.  For AP subjects I start at $100/hr.  For non-AP high school work and grade school work, I start at $75/hr.

I got my start tutoring Test Prep at C2 Education, then went on to broaden the amount of subjects I teach while working at various other tutoring companies around LA.  I now have my own clients and have been lucky to work with great students.

I have taught all ages from 1st to 12th grade.  I've worked with students who attend public schools, as well as those who attend private schools.  And I've worked with students with different considerations, such as ADHD.

A great student I worked with for many years was accepted into Stanford.

Look for a tutor who can help you learn on your own terms so that you may continue to learn after the lesson has ended.

What do you like about a subject?  What bores or intimidates you about it?  What questions are you afraid to ask your teacher and why?  And what is something cool you could do with a subject once you've mastered it?
