    Math online is extremely difficult for me. However, with Patrick he explains step by step to help me comprehend the material. He reads the textbook and gives real-life examples which makes it easy to understand the math problems. Highly recommend him!

  • Adam Chutter

    Patrick is an amazing tutor! Our high school senior needed some AP Calculus help and Patrick was able to bring him up to speed in one hour. He is a fantastic communicator and is incredibly efficient with his time. Looking forward to his continued assistance this year! THANKS A MILLION PATRICK!!!

  • Jenny Jacobs

    Patrick is an excellent Calculus tutor. He works well with teens and young adults. Patrick helped my son work through extensive homework and review sheets for tests so that he understood math concepts. I highly recommend Patrick for math tutoring!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to give him or her an skill assessment to see what immediate areas for improvement are. Then I like to get to know the student's learning style.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a BA in Math from UT/Austin, and I've been tutoring math since I was about 19 years old. I have a real knack for getting to the bottom of why students are struggling.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

30 if you drive to me, 35 an hour if I drive to you.


How did you get started teaching?

I was a philosophy major at UT, but I got placed in the engineering dorm. Most of my dorm mates sucked at math and I found myself being asked to tutor in math even though I was a lowly liberal arts major. They could just tell I was smart, I guess. This prompted me to switch my major to math.


What types of students have you worked with?

I work mostly with college and high-school students, but I am able to teach all the way up to graduate level mathematics.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Trump winning the 2016 election.

Hire me. I'm the best.
