About Paul

Hello! I am Paul. I have been working with young children and their families for over 30 years. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Development and a Master’s Degree in Psychology.

My approach in helping children to learn is collaborative and encouraging. My goal is to make learning accessible to the individual students I am working with. I strive to help students understand what it is they are trying to learn, and to come up with a plan for carrying out tasks and assignments successfully.

I have facilitated the learning of countless students throughout my career. I work to build rapport as well as to promote an understanding of the subject matter. In doing so, I hope to instill in the student a sense of competence, to help the student better engage in learning because he or she believes “I can do this”.

With my background and experience, I can help children to gain confidence and competency in language skills, reading, writing, spelling, as well as early math concepts. I can also assist in the development and practice of basic computer skills.

I value communication and feedback. I will always work with you to help maintain the quality of the services offered. If you would like one-to-one, personalized guidance your child, please contact me. I would love to hear from you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bible Studies

I am a long-time reader of the Bible. I have studied Bible texts for personal enrichment, and have facilitated groups of adults studying and applying Bible texts to our lives. My approach is to read for understanding on three levels: what does it say, what did it mean in context, what does it mean for us today in our own lives.

Elementary Math

I have worked with early elementary children as a teacher's aide, providing assistance on various subjects, including math, according to CORE guidelines.

English

While completing my bachelor and master's degrees, I have written many types of papers and presented material to others. I have read articles and texts on a variety of subjects and demonstrated comprehension of what I have read. I have consistently performed well in exams involving reading, writing, vocabulary, and composition.

General Computer

I have been an active user of both Apple and Microsoft computers for many years. I have used Microsoft Word extensively to create documents, tables, charts, and diagrams of various kinds. I also am familiar with both Excel and PowerPoint.

I have utilized several image editing programs, including Print Artist, Print Explosion, Photoshop Elements, and Picasa.

I am proficient in using the Internet for browsing, downloading, referencing, and streaming information.

Prealgebra

I have been working with young children guiding them in early skills including early math for many years. I am currently tutoring someone in algebra.

Reading

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Human Development and a Master's in Psychology.As an early childhood teacher, I guided young children in early reading and writing skills for 30 years.

Writing

I have helped teach children early writing skills in over 30 years as an educator.

During the course of my studies I have had experience in writing many kinds of papers, such as research papers, observations, discussions, journals, and notes on classroom sessions. These have ranged in length from a single page summary to a full length thesis formats in which I have written range from casual and conversational to formal APA style documents.
