“Patrick has been coaching me in table tennis periodically for two years. He has been very helpful to my game. He is an excellent player and coach. In addition, he is kind, patient and empathic. He would be particularly good with players that haven’t had much instruction because he is very encouraging. I highly recommend getting some coaching from him.”

"We have hired Patrick to teach some of our engineering team to improve their table tennis skills. He comes in once every two weeks for a group lesson. It has worked well - the developers enjoy it, it is team building, and it happens in our office. I'm happy recommending him to do the same at other companies - he is a good teacher, and he is very good at table tennis."
"We have been receiving lessons as part of a company group from Patrick for the past few months. Patrick is an excellent instructor who teaches us the correct form and useful drills to improve. He also gives pointers to correct our individual quirks. He is a patient instructor matching his instruction to the skill level of a person and gradually ramping up. We have seen a marked improvement in our skill levels due to his instruction.”
-Danny from DroidCloud

His lessons are fun and have served as a great team-building exercise for our company.”
