About Paul


Bio

Although there are times, when some of us would like to avoid math, math is a necessity.
Math is an integral part of the world around us: in our paychecks, at the supermarket, and it will be an essential part of your workday someday.
In fact, those who can master basic Math concepts have a far greater earning potential than most other areas of study.

So come on aboard, I can show you the way. I have turned math into a fun and successful exercise for middle school, high school and college...

Math is an integral part of the world around us: in our paychecks, at the supermarket, and it will be an essential part of your workday someday.
In fact, those who can master basic Math concepts have a far greater earning potential than most other areas of study.

So come on aboard, I can show you the way. I have turned math into a fun and successful exercise for middle school, high school and college aged students from all over the country. I have worked successfully with students from other countries. I can teach online and offline with great results.

My enthusiasm for you to succeed will be apparent from our first conversation and/or e-mail. Please don't hesitate to call or e-mail any specific questions regarding math.

I am a math expert and, just as importantly, a motivational expert. My primary method for your success is practice, practice, practice. I have been teaching math to students of all ages and abilities for over 22 years. With successful performance in class and on tests my students say that I am the best math teacher they have ever had. I have had the best Algebra 2 success in the State of Florida during the last 2 years of End of Course Exams.

To complete the circuit of success, I integrate after lesson practice with follow up texts and e-mails. When all the lessons are complete, the results are amazing. I am looking forward to working with you soon.

Elementary Education

Elementary (K-6th),

Elementary (K-6th)

I have extensive knowledge in math but I am well versed in reading and writing through grade 6. My specialty is motivating younger children to work at math until the success becomes contagious. My program for elementary combines math with exercise and sports. I have had success with all levels of students who have participated. I call this program the MRS (Math. Reading. Sports Program.). The summer is a great time to get caught up to or get ahead of grade level.
Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

The emphasis on grades through 2nd is add, subtract, multiply, and divide whole numbers. Speed will be a factor in mastery of 1 and 2 column whole numbers. Mastery is considered 95% accuracy with the required speed. Grades 3 - 5 the emphasis will be on catching up to those skills and mastering new skills that include fractions, decimals, and the order of operations. Mastery is considered 95%.

I have a course for a student who just wants test taking tips and that is 3 weeks at 3 times per week. This is for the student who needs a little math review and more on standardized test taking skills review. For the student who needs more math review I have a 6 - 12 week program at 3 times per week. The total time each week should be 3 hours per week. As the testing deadline approaches we will meet less but each meeting will be for a longer duration.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Paul has been tutoring my daughter for the last month. He has been very patient and helpful. His main goal is that the child understands the concepts and sometimes even goes above time to make sure that happens. So far have been very happy with him. Highly recommend him.

Uttma, 10 lessons with Paul

Paul was great. He was very knowledgeable and helpful.

Paul was able to discern my strengths and weaknesses while explaining the course work I was having issues with. I will be using Paul again! I am looking forward to having him help me again.

Dustin, 4 lessons with Paul

Extremely knowledgable and patient!

Paul M. gave my daughter a terrific lesson in Algebra 2! He was very patient and explained everything thoroughly. He took the time to help her understand the problems and how to correctly solve them. Brought tools for some hands on problem solving which really helped her. Great tutor! 5 Stars! Will definitely be using his services again!

Kristen, 2 lessons with Paul

Good at explaining complicated concepts

He's very good at explaining complicated concepts and is very patient and won't move on until you totally understand a concept. My daughter was struggling in pre calculus and he came very prepared with example questions and diagrams to help her out.

Ester, 5 lessons with Paul

Very Dedicated

Paul helped me stay on task for the week as well as some great pointers on to speed up math recall. The sports analogies are great because they really help breakdown the concepts.

Alexander, 10 lessons with Paul

Just what we needed!

Paul has helped my son achieve an understanding of math that he had never had before. Paul has helped my son have the confidence in his level of math ability to continue on a face the difficult test in front of him. Persistence and knowing what to do to achieve your goal is what Paul does best!

Michelle , 7 lessons with Paul

You can tell he is very knowledgeable, comfortable with the subject of statistics, and I sense he has the ability to convey through the tutoting

We reviewed the assignment I did before my first tutoring session. The purpose was to find out what I knew to determine a starting point to start the tutoring. Paul explained how I should think about learning statistics from the vocabulary to the symbols. We went over how to keep my loose leaf note book to which teaching aids, or examples I should always write down. The emphasis is on learning something, not just getting past the course. Paul my be smiling in the picture, but he is a no nonsense tutor. For me that's good. I know this is going to be productive.

Thomas, 4 lessons with Paul

Very happy

Paul has been great. We were in a unique position where my daughter was in danger of being dropped from her class due to her grade and he jumped right in and got to work. He has been supportive and there when we needed him. I would highly recommend him to anyone. She has a B in the class now and moving up.

Steve, 14 lessons with Paul

Wish I had contacted him sooner.

My 15 year old son had been struggling in Algebra all year and was showing signs of giving up. Within minutes, Paul was able to determine the best way to approach and connect with my son. By the end of our first session, Paul had identified his weaknesses and discussed a plan to get him back on track. I'm feeling encouraged for the first time in a long time.
