My name is Paul and I'm a tutor and mentor. I've been working with kids now for some time, tutoring at a few Seattle schools like John Muir Elementary and Green Lake Elementary. I've also taught a Philosophy for Children course for 1st grade students at John Muir Elementary in conjunction with a course at the University of Washington. At Green Lake Elementary, my methods were more traditional as I was responsible for helping children from Kindergarten to 5th grade with their Math, Science, and Literature homework. I am currently a graduate of the University of Washington where I studied Psychology with an emphasis on Meditation and Mindfulness applications.
At the University I wore several hats. From working in accredited Psychology labs to studying Spanish in Leon, Spain for four months, I've done my fair share of work (and play). I have always loved working with children and am grateful to have the opportunity to be a positive role model in their lives. My life's work is defined by my ability to authentically connect with others and guide them in whatever ways possible. Though I excel in tutoring children and young adults in their school life, I have also spent a lot of my adult life cultivating a deep sense of gratitude and understanding of the things we all go through in life. Because of that, I am also willing to provide mentorship and leadership to my students. I am not only here to help with the studies, I am here to be a friend and mirror for their self development.
I look forward to any opportunity to help!
Thank you for your time.
When I worked at John Muir Elementary in Seattle, I taught in a special class room with children ranging from the mentally challenged, to those with ADD/ADHD, to those that were above and beyond their grade level. I also am very patient and willing to approach the students at their level.
I am qualified to tutor in this area because I have about a year of experience already doing so. I tutored at two separate elementary schools in the area during my final year at the University of Washington. I am very good at working with children and am very qualified to teach the material.
Simply put, I am an exceptional reader and have a keen ability to read by using the phonetic system. This is the way I learned growing up and it has become second nature in my teaching. I am also a spoken word poetry artist, and phonetics is an incredibly important facet of my art.
