About Paul

I am a novice tutor but a person who loves language study and Fine Arts. After 2 years of high school Latin, my English and language skills really kicked in. In addition to English I studied 3 years of German in high school and an additional 3 years at the collegiate level before joining the Army where I was trained as a Polish language specialist. I recognize the need for strong language skills and advanced reading comprehension. While in grade school and high school I consistently tested in reading 2 to 3 years above my grade level. I would love to tutor the "joy of reading"!

In addition to language skills, I am a lifelong artist, or close to it. I started drawing at around 4 years old using my mother's lipstick. Thanks to great parents who endured my early endeavors with lipstick, they encouraged me to use different media, I graduated to pencils, pens, pastels, watercolor and other media and spent much of my adult life drawing and painting. I love drawing and could help the young artist learn the basics of drawing. I am an experienced production artist and typesetter as well and know a variety of graphics software programs including Photoshop, Illustrator and Corel Draw and could help the beginning graphic artist grasp the rudimentary concepts of these programs.


I'm an "Old School" tutor aims to make reading spelling, and art fun. I am available weekday afternoons after school, and can meet at the library or your house.

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.

Drawing

My working experience as a visual and graphic artist includes 3+ years working experience as a Portrait and Caricature artist at Walt Disney World Village, Lake Buena Vista, FL and 4+ years working experience as a Production artist and typesetter for 4G Graphics in Longwood, FL. I am an outgoing, eloquent and enthusiastic individual who loves all manner of visual arts and would relish the opportunity to share and promote that love to like minded individuals.

Polish

After college, I joined the U.S. Army where I studied the Polish language at the Presidio of Monterey in California. My language education there was very rigorous and consisted of 40 hours per week of Polish language training for 56 weeks. I graduated the school with a 2.2 pro rating and worked as a Polish language translator while in the military. To keep my language skills sharp I began attending a Polish language class that is held in the downtown Orlando senior center by the Polish American cultural alliance for two hours per week.
