I asked Rod to work with my daughter on geometry to help her get ready for 9th grade. Rod explains each concept and its application very well. His lessons are appropriate for grade level but also challenging. I am particularly happy that my daughter is learning a broader approach to problem solving and critical thinking. As a scientist (PhD in chemistry) and a mother of a teenager, I appreciate Rod’s approach as it will provide a solid foundation for my daughter’s learning for many years to come. And he is always on time and gives me an overview of what was covered and what will be covered after each lesson. I highly recommend him.

I has reached out Rod at the point in which I resigned and I was expecting to get "B" in my statistics class. I was not confident and constantly struggled in responding to the test questions because I was not sure of concepts. Rod explained me concepts step by step in a very simple way also, by drawing the graphs and that everything was clear for me as visual person. He was able to answered and explained all my questions that I was well prepared and confident on my final exam. Thanks to him I gained the necessary knowledge and I ended with "A".

We originally solicited Rod's support in order to help get our 8th grade daughter up to speed in math class. With high school rapidly approaching, we wanted to ensure that her footing was solid for the rigors of the high school curriculum. As the New York State testing approached, we asked Rod to take some time in the weekly sessions to work on test-taking skills and to do a bit of brushing up on skills that my daughter may run into trouble with. I had my daughter take last year's 8th grade state test (which I found a copy of online), and asked Rod to review her work and help address the learning gaps. Rod's approach was to help my daughter recognize that she actually did know how to do many of the questions that she answered correctly, and with helping her reframe some of the questions, she was able to recognize that the test was not in fact, blind siding her which did wonders for her confidence. Rod spent ample time discussion stress reduction techniques, both before and after the test. As an incredibly supportive gesture, he followed up with us after each of the test days in order to inquire as to how she did, and show she was feeling overall. Rod's contribution definitely helped alleviate her anxiety and bolstered her confidence. By the end of the test she felt confident that she had performed to the best of her ability.

If you look me up on the web, you will find that I am a principal artist on the world's great opera and concert stages. Such a career is only possible by working with the very best people. Finding the right teachers and coaches is almost an art in-and-of-itself. Patrick, is most assuredly one of those teachers. His knowledge of the computer and several challenging disciplines is unmatched in that he knows how to convey that knowledge. I not only learned from him, I enjoyed my lessons.

Good with kids, totally focused on safety first, but works them hard with lots of repetition to see that they are getting it, with good technique.

Hi! I have been teaching for 3 years and my students have gone on to work with different organizations such as the Department of Defense or Microsoft. Within the first few lessons, you will be able to create, compile, and run a computer program that can take in user input and give output. As time goes on, you will be able to solve ANY problem in the world with your magical machine! I can work with either PC or Mac, and my favorite language is C++. No previous experience with computers required!

Paulina is incredible. She made it simple to understand memory structures, objects, security design and logic constructs. Her diverse background enables some interesting conversations as well! Very motivational teacher; the best I've ever seen.

My passion all of my academic life has been computer programming. Ever since I took AP computer science my junior year of college, I knew this was going to be my career. I enjoyed it so much that I became a teacher's assistant for the very same class the very next year. I then went on to tutor many students, and took this skill all the way to college. I understand how different people learn because I have worked with many people with many different learning patterns. I enjoy knowing i can teach something that I have such a passion for.
