About Paul

I have a B.A. in English from SUNY, University at Buffalo, as well as an M.A. in English from the University of Rochester and a Ph.D. in English from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

I've been studying English language, literature, writing and public speaking for most of my life! I specialize in helping students read literature and other difficult texts, analyze such texts and compose lucid, professional writing. Having taught college courses in both literature and writing composition, I am well equipped to help you to read and write at the college level and beyond.

The importance of good reading and writing skills extends well beyond English classrooms. Regardless of your future career path, you'll have to read and write effectively in order to succeed and excel. I can help you to do that by teaching you to see all writing as participating in a genre with specific conventions, which I can teach you to recognize, analyze and employ. Such reading and writing techniques are applicable to virtually all high school and college level classes, as well as myriad real-world situations.

Please contact me to learn more and schedule lessons.
