Wonderful tutor who challenges my son to do better!

Mr Paul E. has been so good in challenging our son to think & compose better! He's already challenged him in just a few sessions, so he's beginning to write better sentences! He helped our son identify his better traits and makes his lessons fun!

Patient, Understanding, Captivating- Will Give you Results

Mr. E brought my college grades up from average C's to straight A's. Mr. E is professional, passionate, helpful and above all he is motivated to help you understand the subject you are struggling in. He is brilliant but also breaks things down so you will understand them, in your own way. Mr. E helped me in English, History, Art History and Philosophy. He is very willing to put in the time if you are. A few times we tutored between 5 and 7 hours getting papers hammered out. Mr. E's way of teaching is captivating, and if he can help me raise my grades while tutoring me in four college level classes at once, I am optimistic of how many other students he can help. If every teacher taught like Mr. E, there would be no need for any sort of tutoring service- but thank goodness there is because he is one in a million when it comes to teaching. P.S. A few of my friends in High school used Mr. E for SAT Prep, and I've only heard great reviews with their improved test scores.

Exceptional Tutoring!

Paul helped me revitalize several college entrance essays. My sessions with Paul were efficient and productive, and I felt very confident about my final drafts. Paul is also quite knowledgeable about the application process, and offered useful advice on how to make myself stand out to admissions counselors. Definitely worth it!!

Amazing college prep!

My time with Paul was spent crafting essays for my college applications. Not only did I accomplish two fantastic essays, but also learned a great deal about improving my writing skills. Prior to the essays we worked a lot on my personality and personal experiences to pick out the qualities I wanted to express in my essays. I highly recommend Paul for a wonderful experience and wonderful results!
