All of Paul’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Paul’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Economics

I enjoyed my freshman economics course so much that I decided to major in economics, graduating with honors, and went on to an MBA.

I love helping others understand not just the concepts and formulas, but what they really mean, and how they can be applied to real-world problems.

My main interests are in microeconomics.

Finance

I first studied Finance while earning my MBA, used it in the real world (both in the corporate world and while running my own business) for 10 years, and more recently while working as a financial advisor. I enjoy taking complex concepts and breaking them down into easier-to-understand chunks.

Italian

I love language and languages and enjoy helping others unlock the beauty of the Italian language and culture.

We can keep classes light-hearted, or we can drill down into the etymology of words, explore the intricacies of grammar, and practice until your pronunciation is flawless – or all of the above!

I grew up in Torino and Milano, and worked in Firenze, so I speak “standard” Italian, and at the same time can give you insights into regional nuances.

A presto!

Japanese

I studied and learned Japanese to the point that I was able to work almost exclusively in Japanese during the six years that I lived, worked and studied in Japan.

My first exposure to Japanese was two years of intensive (one hour of class, one hour of homework and language lab, 5 days a week) Japanese language classes as an undergrad at Harvard. Immediately after graduation I went to Japan to intern at a major Japanese steel company, living in the company dormitory in Kawasaki. I stayed on in Japan, working for a computer company, living and working in Japanese environments (including one year based in a computer factory two hours outside of Tokyo).

All the while I was studying, reading and practicing what I learned during the day. The academic accomplishment I am most proud of is having taken and passed Level 1 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test, administered by Japan's Ministry of Education, which was the level required of foreigners for admission to Japanese university.

Microsoft Excel

I am hooked on spreadsheets. I grew up on the precursors to Excel (Multiplan, Lotus 1-2-3) and have been using Excel since it came out for everything from making a shopping list to elaborate budgeting, business plan modelling, presentations, and running my own business. I just completed a Six Sigma Black Belt course which refreshed the statistics I had studied in college and business school. I love to use data to tell a story. Let me show you how.

Series 7

I earned my degree in economics at Harvard. In 2008 I studied on my own for 6 weeks while working full-time, and took and passed the General Securities Representative Exam, aka the Series 7. If I recall correctly my score was 86. At the time I was struck by how useless many of the study materials were (even those from reputable test prep firms). I had to go back to some of the finance textbooks I had used in business school, and other outside sources, to make sense of it all.
I would be happy to help you do the same.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
