About Paula

My love of teaching first began from a desire to help my children who had learning challenges as well as from my own educational journey. Eight years ago I went back to school so that I could get accepted to Radiology School. Shortly after my first semester back in college, I was asked if I would be a part of a tutoring program in the Biology department at Gavilan College. There I tutored Anatomy, Physiology, General Biology, and Human Biology.

Eventually, I was asked to work in the college's tutoring center where I helped with multiple subjects such as English, Math, ESL, and Nursing. My tutoring career continued while I was completing my Associate degree and then went on when I transferred to San Jose State where I worked with scholarship athletes helping to keep them on track with their academics. In between I did private tutoring so that I could help others outside of the colleges. Overall I have had seven years experience tutoring and love to see students gain confidence in order to succeed and continue on to further educational accomplishments. Currently, I am attending Radiology school and will graduate in 2018 at which time i will complete my bachelor degree.

I specialize in tutoring Biology subjects such as Anatomy, Physiology, General Biology, and Human Biology. I can also tutor English grammar Reading, Spelling, English Composition, ESL, Prealgebra, Conceptual Physics, Public Speaking, History, and Philosophy. I have also had training working with students who have learning challenges.

My goal when working with students is to assess their learning styles and meet their learning needs by using multiple avenues of teaching to
help them to learn the subject matter.

I am available on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 1-6 p.m. and every other Saturday from 12-4 p.m. I can travel to meet students at either a public library or other agreed upon places. My base rate is $65.00 per hour for in-person sessions or $45.00 per hour on-line.

I look forward to hearing from you and working to help you achieve academic success.

I worked in the Biology Department at Gavilan College for 6 years tutoring Anatomy, Physiology, General Biology, and Human Biology as well as working in a tutoring center helping with Philosophy and other subjects. In addition, I worked with students at San Jose state tutoring Biology students.

Tutoring is my passion and I look forward to meeting with you to see how I can help you to achieve your academic goals.

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.

Anatomy

I specialize in Anatomy, Physiology, Human Biology, and General Biology. I tutored in the Biology Department mostly in Anatomy at Gavilan College for over 6 years, helping students to understand the materials, doing mock exams, working on the anatomy models with students, as well as assisting the instructors during labs with the students.

Biology

I specialize in Anatomy, Physiology, General Biology, and Human Biology. Specifically, I work tutoring Biology students at Gavilan College for over 3 years as well as working to help students gain a better understanding of the course materials and study skills for this hard course.

ESL/ESOL

I worked at Gavilan College for six years tutoring multiple subjects including ESL.

Public Speaking

Not only did I take a public speaking course in which I received and A, but I was a tutor 6 years in which I had not only address large groups but do presentations. Public speaking for me is very comfortable and easy. I love it.
