Hi there, I’m Patrick

CIS Researcher | Graduate Teaching Assistant | Programming & Math Tutor | Professional Web Developer

Bio

I have had a passion for teaching for well over a decade. My passion for teaching stems from my obsession with improving the quality of education! For over ten years, I have been working in the educational field in one way or another. From 2009-2013 I worked as a swim instructor. Soon after, I became a graduate teaching assistant in philosophy. From 2018-2019, I worked as a tutor for the companies TutorBright and Oxford Learning Academy. From 2019 to 2021, I worked as a graduate teaching assistant in computer science. Starting in 2019, I began Turing Learning Academy with the hopes of building a company that would help students become proficient in programming and math. My goal is to help as many people as possible become better at programming and mathematics!

Aside from teaching, I enjoy writing riddles, programming, spending quality time with friends and family, and hiking.
