Pat

I am a graduate of Northwestern University. I received my degree from the School of Communication with an emphasis in Theatre and also studied English and Philosophy. At school, I took part in a University program linking student tutors with varsity athletes, and helped these athletes improve their grades in various subjects. I am most passionate about English and History. In my opinion, there is more to tutoring than knowledge of a subject. When a student needs tutoring, they often feel a lot of stress related to the subject for which they are seeking help. I can relate - the sound of the word "calculus" itself was once enough to give me cold sweats. As such, a tutor is not just someone who can teach material, but someone who can alleviate the stress and self-doubt often associated with academic struggle. Once a student views their subject as an invigorating challenge rather than a frightening enemy, they really begin to do their best work. When I tutor, I work to instill comfort and confidence with a subject as well as knowledge.
