About Paul


Bio

I have 5 years of teaching experience in the Dallas region, having taught Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and AVID. I have worked with children/teens in multiple settings: elementary school tutor, history tutor, camp counselor, and chess coach. When I was a teacher, I supported students of all ranges of ability through a variety of learning strategies such as games, songs, math drills, and mnemonics. I enjoy helping students overcome their fear of math.

I have 5 years of teaching experience in the Dallas region, having taught Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and AVID. I have worked with children/teens in multiple settings: elementary school tutor, history tutor, camp counselor, and chess coach. When I was a teacher, I supported students of all ranges of ability through a variety of learning strategies such as games, songs, math drills, and mnemonics. I enjoy helping students overcome their fear of math.

I have classroom experience supplemented by a master's degree and coaching from a teaching program (Urban Teachers). I have a Special Education Certification, an English-as-a-Second Language Certification, and a mathematics 7-12th grade Certification. My ACT composite score was a 35.

At Johns Hopkins School of Education, I completed these relevant courses: Classroom Management, Assessment and Tiered Instruction, Math Methods, Formal Assessment and Developing IEP’s, and Secondary Content Area Reading/Literacy.

I taught online because of COVID for the 2019 - 2021 school years, which gives me experience with online learning.

Excellent Tutor!

At first, I was skeptical about online tutoring, but after the first lesson, my son said it was fun and he learned a lot. Paul is very reliable and knowledgeable teacher. I’m glad my son has an excellent tutor. I would recommend him to anyone struggling with math. Thank you Paul!

Amazing and experienced tutor

Paul was able to assess, make a plan, and understanding my son's need on Algebra 1 class. My son struggles with Algebra because of lack of motivation and Paul is able to navigate through the lesson and support his need. With Paul's help, my son is able to enjoy more on Algebra. Paul is a great tutor/teacher who is knowledgeable and compassion about the students.
