Bio

I'm Paula. I just recently moved to Santa Cruz county from the bay area. I am an experienced teacher of 39 years teaching on the secondary level. I spent over a year tutoring at MPM school in Fremont; it gave me a chance to give real personal attention to students. Over the years I have taught primarily English and speech.

I'm Paula. I just recently moved to Santa Cruz county from the bay area. I am an experienced teacher of 39 years teaching on the secondary level. I spent over a year tutoring at MPM school in Fremont; it gave me a chance to give real personal attention to students. Over the years I have taught primarily English and speech. For the first decade of my teaching career I had classes in drama and music as well. I opened my own theatre 21 years ago, Broadway West Theatre Company, and I just recently closed it when I retired from teaching to move to beautiful Aptos.

I have always loved teaching. The last ten years I have taught primarily seniors, and spent many hours helping them with their college entrance essays and SAT preparation. I have been honored with two Dorothy Wright awards from San Jose State University for "promoting excellence in writing and the love of literature." For anyone who has trouble with public speaking, that is my specialty. I can help instill confidence and skill for any speaking situation. A command of the English language, written and spoken, can be one of our most valuable assets. It can be responsible for success in any situation. I have the knowledge and experience to help anyone improve this asset.

Grammar, literary analysis, proofreading , public speaking,and vocabulary are subjects, among others, that i am qualified to tutor. If you are struggling with writing, grammar, or understanding literature, I can help you. If it is difficult for you to speak in front of people, carry on an intelligent conversation, prepare for a specific oral presentation, interview, or audition, please call me.
