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

Economics

I taught government and business at a University. I have also tutored high school students in basic economics. My undergraduate degree is in political economy or economics with a bent towards international economics and macroeconomics. My MBA is in finance. I love helping students discover how relevant economics is to the world at large.

Elementary Math

I like to teach elementary math by giving real life examples and instances where a person could use this information.

I also encourage students to ask questions to determine the source of their concerns about a subject. Many times they know more than they realize. Once that is pointed out to a student they feel more comfortable trying to solve the problems from their homework.

English

I was born on the East coast. English vocabulary is a subject which I love. It is fun to learn new words. I love literature and have assisted students from age 8 until high school with their English homework. They all passed the regents exam.

Prealgebra

I was a tutor at the lower East side Girls club. I assisted the girls with homework. The majority were in 3rd grade through high school. I tutored them in all subjects up to eighth grade. The high school students needed some assistance in algebra, english composition and science. I was there to help them with their homework. They became successful students.

Reading

I beleive many students try to rush to finish a reading comprehension test. Often I have found that making them focus at a slightly slower pace will get them to an improved level of comprehnsion.

I then try to ask questions gently and encourage them. The one on one attention plus encouragement has helped several students get on to the right track to learning at the level of their peer group and beyond.

Tax Preparation

I have prepared individual tax returns and have incorporated tax strategies into financial products.

I have three years experience preparing taxes for individuals and have passed all the VITA tests

I have had to explain to both clients and others why the steps on the return were completed the way they were and which part of the law it addressed.

Vocabulary

I love to read and have been fortunate enough to have been raised in a household where English was routinely spoken most of the time.

I have had sucess tutoring students whose parents only spoke Spanish. We used flashcards a lot. More importantly, we used a word in a simple sentence and then a more complex sentence. This emphasis on the practical use of vocabulary was more effective than straight memorization.

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.
