Patrick graduated from the Honors College at the University of Houston with a B.A. in Political Science. He then earned his J.D. from Rutgers University School of Law, Camden. In addition to working with Advantage Testing, Patrick is a licensed attorney and an Adjunct Instructor in Medical Law at the University of Texas, School of Health Professions. Like many students, Patrick started out as a math-phobic kid who would rather read the phonebook than evaluate a fraction, but he eventually bloomed into a calculus-loving Texas Aerospace Scholar who later went on to study political science and law, bent on trying to make the world a better place (which he still does, tutoring one student at a time). For him, writing is energizing and thrilling, but he understands that for many it is a dreaded chore; he particularly loves demystifying the writing process for students working on legal, academic, or college admissions writing projects. History, music, and language are what get Patrick out of bed in the morning—if he’s not teaching, he’s learning about his favorite topics, including classical music, literature, film, and foreign languages (including French, Spanish, German, and Serbian). He can also be found chasing his daughter around, trying to get her to sing with him.
