What's up everybody? My name is Patrick and welcome to my page for MCR3U - Grade 11 Functions. If you scroll down, you can find my videos for the course organized by chapter. Please contact me (text or call) at 647-961-4348 with any questions or suggestions.
"Throughout the year, Patrick was truly dedicated to ensure that I understood all course concepts. I was able to earn a 94% in my Advanced Functions course as I scored a 97% on my final exam. As I transitioned into Second Semester, Patrick had started making his Calculus & Vectors students YouTube videos for each lesson in the course. This was very beneficial as I would be able to use these tools as a study guide for quizzes, tests, and my final exam. I was able to achieve a 90% overall mark in my Calculus & Vectors course. Without Patrick, none of my goals would have been achieved. Whether it’s about work, school, music, working out (the list goes on), Patrick and I still talk at least four times a week. I'm very fortunate to have met him not only as my tutor, but as my friend as well."

"Grade 11 was the year I began to see Patrick and it’s safe to say it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. In my grade 12 year he tutored me during first and second semester. Patrick made my dreams of obtaining an average above 90% in advanced functions as well as calculus and vectors a reality and I’m so grateful. He’s very patient and takes the time to make sure you thoroughly understand the concepts you’re learning, whether it’s with help from his videos, practice tests or him himself. He’s so supportive and dedicated to what he does and pushes you to do your best and succeed in not only whatever subject he’s tutoring you in, but anything you’re striving for."

"In my grade 12 school year, Patrick had tutored me in 4 of my class subjects. He provided me with YouTube videos of my class topics, crafted by himself in a way that was so easy for me to understand the concept I had difficulties in. With the help of Patrick, I was able to achieve a 97% in Data Management, 97% in Advance Functions, 96% in Calculus and Vectors, and a 92% in Accounting. Without his help, I truly believe that I would not be able to accomplish what I have achieved in my final high school year."

"Even before I met Patrick I have heard nothing but positive comments from my classmates that he had previously tutored concerning his work ethic, attention to detail, and being able to explain concepts. Patrick began tutoring me when I started Calculus & Vectors. I was happy to know that he was making YouTube videos concerning each lesson with additional example videos that vary in difficulty. If I ever missed a day at school I knew that Patrick's videos would help me understand the lesson on my own. When I was in the library and was done my homework, I asked Patrick for additional questions that I could do to better prepare myself for the unit test and he would never fail to challenge me. Without his help, I don't think I would be able to achieve my overall 90% in the course."

I started getting tutored by Patrick when I was in grade 11. With his help, I managed to raise my functions mark from 68% midterm to 90% final. He was very helpful and was able to answer all my questions easily. My study habits improved a lot as the library was a nice and quiet place to get work done. When I needed help outside of the library, he would send me videos to watch which were easy to follow and understand. I continued going to Patrick in grade 12 and with his help I achieved a final grade of 88% in Advanced Functions and 91% in Calculus and Vectors. Patrick’s tutoring allowed me to get into a University of my choice and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without him. Thank you!

"As a student returning to school to complete pre-requisites for engineering I needed a tutor who could help me understand mathematical concepts I hadn’t seen in a few years. Patrick is extremely knowledgeable and was very patient in explaining concepts in various ways until I was fully comfortable with them. His tutoring and videos helped me achieve near perfect grades on tests and assignments for both MHF4U and MCV4U as well as helped me prepare for exams. He was very accommodating towards my schedule and made sure I was ready for my tests and exams, and I truly could not have become so comfortable with math - a subject which I had previously been intimidated by - without his help."

"From grade 9 to 11, I never achieved above 80% in a math course. Knowing grade 12 was extremely important I sought out a math tutor and was recommended by many people to Patrick. Patrick was dedicated, patient, and extremely knowledgeable; answering any question I had. In grade 12 I took all 3 math courses (advanced functions, calculus, data management). He played an extremely important role in helping me get a 94% in data and a 90% in calc and advanced functions. Patrick also has videos and an abundance of extra practice questions assuring that you will be ready for any test or exam. Not only is Patrick a great tutor, he is also easy to talk to and made going to tutoring surprisingly enjoyable. He is one of the main reasons why I got into the extremely competitive BBA program at Laurier."

"I am very thankful for the support and help that Patrick has provided me for my final year of high school. Math was never my strong suit but with his patience and very informative videos, I was able to better understand and enhance my knowledge for advance functions, and for Calculus& Vectors. Achieving a final grade of 86% for Calculus & Vectors, and an 80% in Advance functions. Patrick is someone who connects very well with all of his students and will do his very best to help you succeed in all your courses. Best of luck to all of you!"

"Exceptional detail in both videos and notes provided in the course that are easy to refer back to anytime. Well thought through material that relates perfectly to the high school math curriculum. In the in class sessions, I was the most productive in a great learning environment with Patrick always double checking to make sure I understood the concepts to the best of his ability. Through this course I achieved my goals in both Advanced Functions and Calculus of over 90% for both final grades."
