Hello! My name is Paul, and I just completed eight years in the US Air Force. I was a linguist and had the opportunity to learn Pashto, Farsi, and Dari. Now that I'm out of the military, I plan to go back to school and pursue a degree in finance.

I have had some experience tutoring; I tutored people in math and English when I attended Pasadena City College in 2005, and I served as a full-time English as a Second Language teacher to Spanish speakers for three years when I lived in Africa. It was there that I became fluent in Spanish.

Other chances that I've had to help people include tutoring my fellow classmates during the year-long Pashto and Farsi courses. I break down complex subjects and distill their essence into understandable chunks so that the student can grasp the subject quickly and easily.

Feel free to contact me via email to discuss how I can help you reach your educational goals.
