Hello!

Is your child normally an A-student, but can't seem to do well on those dreadful chemistry exams? Has math never really been his or her strong suit or maybe it's that time of the year for the ACT/SAT and you want to make sure that they score as high as possible? If so, look no further! I am a professional tutor entering my 5th year of helping young minds excel. In addition to tutoring, I have taught just about every imaginable high school level science and math course in one-on-one...

Hello!

Is your child normally an A-student, but can't seem to do well on those dreadful chemistry exams? Has math never really been his or her strong suit or maybe it's that time of the year for the ACT/SAT and you want to make sure that they score as high as possible? If so, look no further! I am a professional tutor entering my 5th year of helping young minds excel. In addition to tutoring, I have taught just about every imaginable high school level science and math course in one-on-one private school settings and have improved SAT/ACT scores for dozens of students.

My philosophy is understanding over memorizing. Often, bright students come to me simply overwhelmed with the amount of information that they must learn in a short amount of time. Their teachers will simply have dry lectures and just spit out information that the students must then go home and spend hours trying to learn. I aim to facilitate the learning process by showing them the why and not the what. Having been both a teacher and a tutor, I've had the unique pleasure of seeing the learning process in action from two very different perspectives. My goal is to help students master difficult concepts while also showing them how to get the most out of their classroom experiences. Too often students feel lost in a sea of information during class and simply do not know how to stay ahead enough to follow along and get the most out of the hours of instructional time they have every day!

My educational background is a BS in neurobiology with a minor in chemistry from the University of Florida where I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Honors Program.

I am available most days with sufficient notice and can often take students on short notice. I offer a discount for both online tutoring and group tutoring!

I look forward to helping your child succeed!

GRE

I have helped students significantly raise their ACT, SAT, GRE, and GMAT scores for over four years. In addition to content review, I also tackle test-specific strategies in order to maximize scores. My specialty is the math section as I have taught and tutored math ranging from pre-algebra to calculus for over 5 years, but I am more than glad to help with every other section.

Statistics

Statistics

I have spent over two years working for a private high school where I taught a variety of math classes ranging from pre-algebra to AP statistics. I was an AP statistics teacher for all two years and my students excelled on the exam! In addition to teaching these classes, I also tutored them, and others, during the evening hours. This duality of teacher and tutor really helped me see which methods of explanation worked well and which caused students confusion. I could look at what other teachers were doing that caused students to need tutoring, and then I used the information to adjust my own classes and my own teaching style. After over two years of this, I developed a unique way of explaining difficult topics that helped students understand rather than memorize. This became especially important in statistics as this class tends to be more daunting to students than their earlier math classes and a thorough explanation of concepts is much needed. The concepts can sometimes be very abstract and difficult to succeed in through just formula learning. My goal is to provide students with the foundation needed for them to keep up with the fast pace of their class and excel!

Biology,

Biology

Biology was the the subject that initially attracted me to teaching and tutoring. I graduated with a BS in neurobiology so I am very proficient at explaining concepts in such a way that allows students to really understand what is going on rather than rote memorizing. I believe that a teaching style like mine is especially important in biology, where students tend to get lost in a sea of new terms thrown at them every week. I spent over two years working for a private high school where I taught regular and honors biology during the day and tutored the same plus AP biology later in the evening.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

Although my college major was neurobiology, the chemistry aspect of biology always fascinated me and I pursued a minor in chemistry during my stay at UF. I spent over two years as the principal chemistry teacher at a private high school for regular and honors chemistry. I also tutored many AP chemistry students during the evenings as that particular subject was always in high demand. The sheer volume of students that came to me for chemistry help allowed me to develop a unique teaching style that aims at helping students understand concepts rather than memorize them. This tends to be very important in chemistry, which tends to be a problem solving class where rote memorization seldom helps students succeed.

When it comes to the math section of the SAT, knowing how to approach the questions is just as important as knowledge of content. The truth is that there are numerous ways to arrive at a right answer even if the question appears too difficult or there is a gap in knowledge. My speciality is approaching the math section from both angles. While I still help students remember or learn concepts, I also focus on helping them master the necessary skills to bypass complicated work and arrive at their answers in a timely fashion to maximize their scores. I have been tutoring the SAT one-on-one and in workshops for over two years now and my students who put in the effort and want to improve will improve.

The ACT science section is very unique and is usually very different from what students are used to. Luckily, once someone knows what makes it unique, it actually becomes one of the easiest sections on the test! My goal is to accustom students to the section and teach them how to read between the lines. Most of the questions require absolutely zero outside science knowledge, but rather simply test a student's ability to correctly ready tables, graphs, charts, and figures. These are the skills that I aim to work on with my students and this always leads to much higher science scores! I have tutored the ACT in its entirety for two years in both workshops and one-on-one sessions. Additionally, I have a very strong science background as I graduated top of my class, summa cum laude, with a B.S. in neurobiology from the University of Florida.

Knowledgeable and great tutor

Paul taught me the necessary steps I needed in precalculus for my class. He is very patient which is important because you want to understand and not be rushed like other tutors I had before. First impression of Paul is that he is very smart and he can pick out your weakness and Strengths on the first lessons. By this, he is able to put a lesson plan and teach you in a way that you understand better as a student. Thanks Paul for all your help!

Enoc, 15 lessons with Paul

Excellent communication

He taught me how to do operations with complex numbers, and solve functions with complex numbers. He provided me with some extremely helpful tricks to shorten the work, and some tricks for other topics we had mentioned as well. Very engaging and is able to easily explain and teach the subject.

Joan, 1 lesson with Paul

Helpful

Paul was very responsive and helpful. On very short notice he was able to provide a review for an AP midterm. We appreciated his help and how easy he was to work with.

Lisa, 1 lesson with Paul

Knowledge and patient tutor

Paul really helped my son to understand the concepts. He worked with him on both geometry and biology. My son felt more confident going into the tests. I would definitely recommend him.
