Intelligent, empathetic, creative and witty only begin to describe Paul and his teaching style. I sought his help with College Calculus. I greatly struggled with the complex theories and desperately needed a good grade for my graduate school application. Paul was able to translate calculus into a language I could comprehend. He used topics I could identify with, like music and sports, to convey complicated topics. He was flexible and worked around my crazy schedule; he even met with me online at 6AM one time to help me review for an 8AM quiz. He really is an incredible teacher and I enjoyed our sessions immensely! He is well worth the investment of time and money.

I came to Paul with questions on a very high level college math class that dealt with hypothetical math and more. Paul was able to explain the concepts in a way that was very clear to understand ,and allowed me to learn the material that I needed to very quickly. Paul is completely qualified for any level of math help in that you could want. I would recommend him thoroughly.

He taught me Physics and Statistics in the same lesson, and even came back to help me some more after another tutoring session! He is patient, and clear and helpful!

Paul has proven to be very helpful in guiding my daughter through some rough spots in preparation for the ACT exam. She is a straight A student in her high school's IB program, but there were times that she felt that previous material needed some refreshment. Paul was able to assist her and figure out what her immediate needs were in preparing for the exam. He is very knowledgeable and patient, offering examples that were specific to her needs. She has recommended Paul to her friends and speaks highly of his guidance through her ACT and calculus needs.

When I struggle to understand Paul takes time to explain until I get it. I am gaining confidence with every lesson.

My son told me that he is looking forward having another math lessons with Paul. This was our first day! Great guy. He knows his subject! I was really impressed!!

Paul is helping me study for my GRE exam. He is nice, encouraging, and an excellent communicator. If I do not understand something he finds different ways of explaining. Paul always confirms lessons with me the day of, which is great. I'm planning on having 4 lessons total with Paul, so far so good.

Paul taught me how to understand t how to do the volume of a cone, cylinder, how to find the missing angles. He told me to be aware of the formulas

Versatile in the ability to switch to what is important in the future as well as getting an understanding of this weeks work.

Paul helped me out greatly with College intro to physics...I was struggling to wrap my head around understanding physics. He helped to break it down to my level of understanding and with his help got a "A" in my class. Highly recommend if struggling with physics or math.

Thanks, Paul

We have been working through essentials of calculus, a subject I was struggling with but now seem to be grasping! Thank you Paul

Paul is awesome! He teaches in a clear, easy to understand manner, he's patient and really cares about your success. I went into our session unsure about the material I needed to know for a College Algebra test the next morning, and he walked me through everything until I understood it all, and I ended up getting a 101% on my exam!

Paul taught me today in our lesson to properly compute derivatives and extracting critical points in order graph an accurate depiction of the function with a huge amount of patience until I met with his level and continued forward together.

I was very lucky to have found Paul just when I thought I would not be able to complete my Algebra course. When I contacted Paul, I literally had one month to learn all the material I needed to know to successfully pass my exam. Needless to say, I had very little knowledge of the course material to begin with. Thanks to Paul for his guidance and expertise, I not only successfully completed my exam, but had a very good score! That in itself says a lot about the tutoring and the tutor! If you ever need a crash course in Math, Paul is your expert!!

I just finished my first lesson with Paul and it was amazing. I was really impressed with the Wyzant classroom portal and Paul helped me navigate through it in no time. He helped me work out several problems that bought my textbook to life. It was very helpful having Paul explain the concepts. He was very patient and thorough, great instructor!

Paul was able to schedule us very quickly. Class was online, which I was a bit reluctant at first but it seemed to have worked great. Will have him a tutor again for sure.

Paul is great. He makes things look simple by breaking the process step by step. I'm really looking forward to continue working with him.

At first I was worried that using an online classroom would not be the same as meeting face to face, but all my doubts were proven wrong after my first lesson with Paul. He is an amazing tutor and is very knowledgeable. He truly wants you to succeed and is patient enough to re-explain things over and over in different ways until it clicks for you. I would recommend to anyone who struggles in math and wants to not only improve their grade but also to truly understand the material.

Paul is great. I regret not finding him sooner. Happy to know I have a solid and easy to talk to tutor. He was able to make someone shy like me feel encouraged to come forth about any questions.

Very knowledgeable and positive. She gives me the confidence that I need to know that I will pass this class.

Paul is an exceptional tutor in that he is able to connect with a student, evaluate his/her strengths and weaknesses and begin teaching from the very first lesson. Paul is a very caring person and it is important to him that his students excel in the subject matter. He is very easy to work with and is a good listener. I would highly recommend Paul J.

Paul is an outstanding tutor. Extremely knowledgable, patient, and is there when you need him. I have increased two letter grades in both Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus with Paul's help. If you are looking for a great math tutor, look no further because Paul is the best.

Paul was reliable and prepared when tutoring my daughter. He was prompt in following up and I would recommend him!

Paul tutors my son in AP Calculus. At first I was concerned that a remote tutor would not be effective. This is not so. Paul comes to the lesson well prepared. He explains concepts in detail, while fully engaging the student. He asks good questions that give him insight as to what the student does and doesn't understand and takes his direction from there. I am impressed that Paul provides notes from the session. These have been useful, and my son has referred back to these in order to prepare for his tests.

Paul has a good grasp of the subject matter. This allows him to explain the work from many angles and to relate it back to other work. For my son he has related some of his calculus work to his AP Physics class.

All in all, Paul has made a difference for my son. He has had a number of those 'aha' moments. Meanwhile Paul is receptive to questions, relates well and is not condescending in any way.

I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't found Paul. Calculus finally makes sense, if you want to pass and actually learn, Paul is your guy!

He taught me how to convert and what to look for to solve problems (which is my biggest weakness). He showed me different tips & things to keep in mind while doing so! I certainly have more confidence & will get better with practice!

Thanks Paul!!!

Paul is a math genius! He helped me with a college calculus class and I found him to be knowledgeable, patient and an excellent teacher. He has the ability to put life into the numbers and throws in some history lessons regarding mathematics to help with understanding what is happening and why it is important.

Choose me as your Algebra tutor, and I will devote myself to your success!

Algebra 1 and Intermediate Algebra are important milestones in a student's development. The abstract nature of this material can be burdensome for many; however, with sufficient training WE CAN overcome these technical difficulties. My approach to teaching these ideas is to keep it simple, and use relevant examples that apply to daily life.

When am I ever going to use this?

Algebra is widespread!

It is an incredibly powerful idea that is marvelous in its applications and brilliant in its theory. Scientists use algebra to describe cell growth, human behavior, as well as electrical circuits. Engineers use it to construct jet airplanes, bridges, and smartphones.

Algebra is required to graduate from high school, college, and to enlist in the military. It appears on many standardized tests including SAT, ACT, GED, ASVAB, GMAT, and GRE. Nursing, computer programming, and aviation are just some of the careers that require an understanding in algebra.

Algebra 2, and College Algebra are some of my popular subjects to tutor. Additionally, I have completed graduate coursework in Modern Abstract/Applied Algebra. So, I understand the roots of algebra, as well as the advanced discipline it is today.

The key to success in all of these courses is CONSISTENT effort. I provide consistency to my students by keeping them organized and motivated. As with other subjects, my approach to algebra is to keep it simple and accessible.

When am I ever going to use this?

A solid foundation in algebra can lead to success in more advanced disciplines like, calculus, physics, engineering and computer programming.

In fact, techniques from linear algebra are used to manipulate, categorize, compress, and encrypt/decrypt information on the internet. This very sentence would not be able to reach you if we weren't using algebra!

Relating new mathematical ideas to my students' hobbies is invaluable when it comes to making progress with confusing material. Calculus, more so than algebra or geometry, lends itself to these comparisons. In calculus, we often discuss changes and amounts. The change in velocity of your car as you merge onto an exit ramp, and the amount social media users ten years from now are just some ideas we could explore using our calculus skills.

When Am I Ever Going to Use This?

Calculus is used to engineer cars, airplanes, and spacecrafts. It is used to model scientific theories ranging from electrodynamics to deep ecology. Insurance companies, hire mathematicians who use calculus to analyze probabilities, and determine premiums for customers.

Choose me as your GED tutor, and I will devote myself to your success!

The General Educational Development test, or GED, is a bridge to opportunity. Passing this test opens doors in business, academics, and in life. (Ask about GED discounts.)

To me, tests are like checkpoints. We see them coming, and can prepare for the encounter. It would be my pleasure to help you prepare for the GED, so that you are confident when reaching the checkpoint.

The GED test our knowledge of mathematics, science, social studies, reading, and writing. I am able to provide you with instruction for all of these subjects. Both test strategies, and subject specific content are incorporated into lessons. We will focus on material that is covered on the the GED test.

Geometry has impacted our lives in so many ways wonderful ways. From old sailing maps to modern GPS, from MRI's to fashion magazines, geometry and its many benefits make our lives easier and more fun!

Literally, Earth measure, geometry has been synonymous with education and power since the beginning of recorded history. The ideas concerning geometry being taught in high schools around the world today were developed out of necessity. Our ancestors needed to solve practical problems like dividing parcels of land for a new invention: agriculture. Governments were interested in areas of land for taxation purposes. In fact, the Egyptians even gave rebates to farmers when the Nile flooded farmland.

When Am I Ever Going to Use This?

Are you using a mobile device? If so, chances are it is using ideas involving elliptical curves to secure your personal banking information every time you make an e-commerce transaction online. Some of the original work was done by a teenage girl for her local science fair less than thirty years ago!

Choose me as your Pre-Calculus tutor, and I will devote myself to your success!

Pre-Calculus is a steppingstone to more sophisticated mathematics. It previews a myriad of concepts which range from matrix algebra, to limits, and from trigonometry to conic sections.

When Am I Ever Going to Use This?

We use ideas from Pre-Calculus when studying advanced theories, as well as when studying science and engineering. For example, trigonometry is used to analyze vectors like velocity and force which are fundamental concepts from physics. These ideas together with some from conic sections are used investigate celestial mechanics: the motion of worlds.

As a perfect scorer, professional tutor, and trained mathematician, I am your perfect partner for success on the SAT. Utilizing my database of practice tests, we can examine questions developed by SAT test writers. During our lessons, I will enable you by providing options, easy wins, and organization.

Send me a message if you have any questions, or would like to schedule a lesson.

I want you to actualize your potential!

Choose me as your trigonometry tutor, and I will devote myself to your success!

Although many ideas covered in trigonometry are complicated, they can be understood in terms of more fundamental ideas. I can clarify how the fundamental identities lead to advanced identities, when, and how to use them.

When Am I Ever Going to Use This?

In addition to mathematical theory, application plays a large role in trigonometry. This course is needed for professional careers including medicine, engineering, surveying, and aviation.
