About Paul

I have always loved the written word and feel that good writing, including proper grammar, punctuation, and syntax, are critical in order to stand out from the crowd. It's a skill all successful leaders have and is one that should be developed and nurtured from an early age. I am a graduate of Cornell University with a Bachelor of Arts in English and have been working at Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL as a Career Development Advisor for just under five years. In my Advisor role, I review and critique resumes and cover letters, as well as general communication, on a daily basis, and I believe I have refined my skills in this area in a way that would seamlessly transfer over to tutoring writing and reading comprehension. I have also been a freelance drum teacher for several years and have developed a system for working one-on-one with students and customizing lesson plans to their individual needs and skill level. I also always write summaries after each lesson about what I taught, how the student did, what areas need work, and what to work on for the next lesson.

I believe it's very important to establish a rapport early on with the students I work with at Full Sail as well as my drum students. I am a good-natured, friendly person who is easy to get along with and who genuinely cares about and derives great satisfaction from helping others succeed. I want learning to be fun but I also expect students to put in the time and effort needed to accomplish whatever they set out to achieve; I am not necessarily going to "crack the whip," but I will be completely honest if I feel progress isn't being made due to a lack of effort on the student's part.

I am happy to teach in my home, where I have room for us to work where we can be focused, or I can travel to your home. My full time job is essentially 9 to 6 Monday through Friday but I am available in the evenings, on weekends, and possibly also early mornings during the week.

Thank you for taking the time to read about me and I would love the opportunity to help you succeed!
