If I had to choose three traits of Patrick that describe him as a teacher, I would go with: diligence, creativity, and flexibility. Diligence, because he is always fully committed to clearly and thoroughly explaining every nuance of the language the student is struggling with. Creativity, because he is not only focused on correcting the student’s mistakes. Instead, he provides a lot of alternative vocabulary with relevant examples. Flexibility, because he is very open-minded and able to adapt to any topic, which is evident from pertinent and thought-provoking questions he often asks. All of the above makes me recommend Patrick to anyone looking for an excellent teacher/mentor. Thank you, Patrick, for your hard work.

It is a joy to speak to Patrick every week because he is my friend. In today’s class we covered wide-range of topics. I am so happy that I could tell Patrick about my father who passed away when I was just 13. Apart from our discussion, I really enjoy reading Patrick’s feedback. As far as English is concerned, there are so many areas I want to discuss with Patrick and am so looking forward to our future classes. Thanks again Patrick and take care always.

Patrick is not just a fantastic teacher, he's a fantastic person. Thank you SO much for helping me today, not just with my English, but also with my problems! Patrick spent almost 20 more minutes than the 30 I booked, and he didn't mind, so I really appreciate it. I'm just looking forward to speaking with you soon :D Honestly, many thanks.

Thank you, Patrick, for two spontaneous conversations this week. I believe that if I supplement them with a few walks over the weekend, I'll be ready, steady, and patient ;) for "the Olympiad". See you next week!

Discussions sur le théâtre d'impro et l'argumentation dans le sens de la dispute entre deux personnes. J'ai découvert le HEAT que j'ai hâte d'essayer :)!
