About Paul

My teaching career began in the school setting while living in Fortaleza, Brazil. Not only did I have the opportunity to learn Portugese during my six years of residing there, I also had the joy of teaching and coaching at the middle and high school levels. After returning to the United States, I received my Florida teaching certificate for K-6. Since that time, I have also earned my M.S. in Elementary Education with a Specialization in Reading and Math. Also on my teaching certificate I have my ESOL endorsement and my Reading endorsement from the state of Florida. My passion for teaching is directly linked to my philosophy that every child has value and boundless potential. As a teacher, I have the joy and challenge to determine where each of my students are, and then implement teaching strategies that will help them to progress to the levels they should be and beyond. I also believe that each student is his or her own individual, therefore may learn differently than other classmates. With that realization, I need to closely monitor each student's understanding and comprehension. If a student is not grasping what I am teaching in the method in which I am communicating, then I need to adjust my instruction and deliver the material in a manner that the learner may understand. Although, at times, this can seem very challenging, the joy of seeing a student finally understand a concept is thrilling and extremely rewarding. It is truly a privilege and an honor to impact lives through the avenue of teaching. My teaching career began in the school setting while living in Fortaleza, Brazil.

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.

Bible Studies

I have been blessed with the privilege to study the Bible for a number of years. My foundation and knowledge were both deepened during my years at Crossroads Bible College where I received my Bachelors degree. I was also ordained after enduring 4 hours of questioning by my ordination council which was made up of around 75 pastors and church leaders. I have also served as a pastor, youth pastor, and missionary over the years. I am currently teaching the Bible on a weekly basis at a local church in Orlando.

Elementary (K-6th)

This is my thirteenth year teaching in Osceola County in a public elementary school. Ten of those thirteen years I have had the privilege to teach third grade. I also taught second grade for two years and a K-5 wheel/block Math class for one year. I have my M.S. Elementary Education with a Specialization in Reading and Math. I also have my state of Florida's teaching certificate along with my Reading endorsement and ESOL endorsement.

ESL/ESOL

I am ESOL endorsed by the state of Florida. The ESOL endorsement is on my Florida teaching certificate.

Study Skills

This is my tenth year of teaching elementary school in a public school in Florida. On my Florida teaching certificate I also have my Reading and ESOL endorsements. The majority of my years teaching have been in a third grade classroom. Since third grade is the first FCAT tested grade level, we spend a great deal of time on study skills as well as test taking strategies.
