About Paul

Dear Student:

When working with you, I focus developing your mastery in the particular concept with which you are having difficulty. In addition, I show ways to transfer these concepts to a range of applications. This serves you better than merely answering the specific question or problem at hand. I work with you to develop the ability to understand and to define the immediate problem, to identify potential routes of solving the problem, to solve the problem itself, and then to critically evaluate the answer.

I want you to be an independent learner who can master the ability to integrate new concepts within your present foundations. I look forward to working with 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.

CBEST

I took the CBEST in 1999 and passed it. I can guide prospective students in test-taking strategies.

Chemistry

I have over 10 years of experience working in laboratories doing chemical analysis. I bring this real-world experience to you.

Logic

I took the CSET Mathematics tests (110, 111, and 112) in 2009 and passed them. I also have completed 3 college level Calculus courses as part of my B.S. in Chemistry.

Organic Chemistry

My B. S. in Chemistry from U. of Massachusetts included significant organic chemistry coursework: 2 semesters of basic organic chemistry, plus laboratory, and one advanced organic chemistry class.
