We had a wonderful introduction lesson with Pat. He is very enthusiastic and patient. We enjoyed his lesson very much.

Great SAT tutor It was my son's first session. Patrick was very kind and easy to talk to. I think he is going to be extremely helpful. He took his time answering questions clearly. My son really enjoyed working with him and looks forward to the lessons to come.
- Ineke V. from Mill Creek, WA
Patrick has been working on SSAT prep with my son. After the first session, my son was convinced. He liked Patrick's teaching style and felt that his tips were very helpful. He breaks down the questions in ways that the kids can better understand the material.
- Cindy W. from Mundelein, IL
My son has been studying with Patrick to prepare for his SAT test (both math and English). Not only we are extremely pleased with every single lesson, but Patrick?s knowledge and his vibrant personality has a super positive effect on my son. The best tutor ever!
- Elena C. from Roslindale, MA
Patrick used the Wyzant online teaching tool to work on specific SAT sections that my son needed help with and it was an extremely effective way of teaching him exactly what he needed to improve his score in that section.
- Sunanda N. from Newton, MA
Patrick helped my son improve his SAT scores from a 1180 (better than 65% of students) to a 1370 (better than 95% of students) in six weeks! ---After that experience, we hired him to work with our daughter to improve her SSAT scores, with similarly astounding results (from the 55th percentile to the 81st percentile!). ---Since Patrick is an experienced, certified math and English teacher, we had him continue to work with both kids in their school work. ---He helped them (and us!) with high school and college applications and essays: which were far more complex and time-consuming than we imagined. ---Although Patrick is a score-boosting machine, he is more than that. ---He has been a friendly, fun, funny, and caring mentor to my children. ---Both of my kids regard Patrick as their favorite (and most effective) teacher ever. ---Lastly, Patrick has been an invaluable resource to us as parents: helping us to understand our children's strengths and areas to improve, as well as how to help them progress. ---In short, Patrick is a one in a million teacher. A true "A+"

Patrick helped with mistakes in the practice test of reading section, writing section and it went well, hoping my Son gets his much needed last minute preparation for his upcoming SAT.
- Bhanu R. from Bellevue, WA
Patrick helped me with my English writing assignment. He is very thorough and his advice and comments are detailed and constructive. I will continue to work with Patrick.
- Helen H. from Wallingford, CT
Patrick is an amazing SSAT tutor. I have worked with him over the past 45 days to improve my score. He has taught me a lot of test-specific concepts for succeeding, has developed an extremely helpful guide for taking the SSAT, is extremely knowledgeable in not only explaining the concepts but also in explaining the most efficient way to work through different types of problems. Patrick has been very flexible in scheduling lessons and as a result of working with him I have felt much more confident in the concepts that are being tested.
- Warren E. from Freeport, ME
He is helping me with standardized testing. I have had previous tutors but I have really connected with Patrick. He is very dedicated to his students and explains concepts in multiple ways so that you understand it. He is fantastic!
- Cari S. from West Palm Beach, FL
Now my son has had five time lessons so far with Patrick including a free lesson. My son has been very happy with his productive explanation on each question in SSAT and his well-developed technology for teaching he uses online. He has well recognized my son's strong point and weak too and has been trying to give him the accurate solution to go to next level and beyond. We feel really lucky to meet such an intelligent teacher like him at Wyzant. I will be back after few more lessons.
- Hyungsang Y. from Yukon, OK
Patrick did a wonderful job designing a tutorial program around my daughter's strengths and weaknesses as it relates to ISEE Lower Level Math. He made the work fun, and was very encouraging along the way. He definitely helped my daughter focus on time management for the exam, and showed her some great skills to employ when working on more difficult exam questions. I highly recommend Patrick.
- Jonathan C. from Lexington, MA
Patrick is working with our 14 year old on improving his ssat verbal score by a lot. It will be a difficult few weeks but our son is accepting the challenge by working with Patrick who is motivating, encouraging, and has great ideas that may help him bring his scores up substantially. So far so good.
- Karen S. from Sparta, NJ
Helped her determine what was keeping her from attaining the high scores she desires from ACT Reading and Math. He also gave her the tools she needs to succeed on the SAT. Look forward to seeing her scores!
- Angela B. from Middlesboro, KY
Patrick's first session with my son resulted in a smile on his face. The lesson was interactive and upbeat. Patrick was very patient and kind. Could not recommend more!
- Chris B. from Wilmington, MA
Patrick really helped my daughter understand the SSAT reading section and worked with her to improve her speed and confindence.
- Don C. from Woburn, MA
We had our first session with Patrick for standardized test prep. He worked with my son and instead of requiring him to do many practice problems to karen things he did not know, he gave him strategies on how to figure out the answer in a more simple way that he could understand. My son can now use these strategies for school as well as on the test. He also was also great at explaining things so my son could understand He got to work right away and was very engaging. My son left the session feeling like he had learned a lot and that he will definitely be able to use the strategies learned. He said the time went quickly and he was looking forward to continuing the sessions. Patrick is a gifted tutor
- Mary S. from Wellesley, MA
Tailored the lesson to learning style. Very thorough in examples and quickly understood gaps in my son's knowledge of algebra. Created a thoughtful path forward.
- Sarah W. from Waban, MA
It isn't common to find a tutor who has a strong acumen in AP literature AND is familiar with the particulars of the exam. Patrick had both and build my daughter confidence in the subject matter. Thank you Patrick!
