About Paul

Since 2009, with leading test prep companies, I've worked with more than 100 students on Test Prep- SAT, ACT, PSAT, ISEE, and SSAT. I've benefited from extensive training and expert materials. In addition, I've taught ESL in a number of settings both overseas and in the US. I'm comfortable and effective working with students who need accommodations.

Here's all you really need to know. Many of the parents I've worked with have sought me out to work with a second or third child. And one more thing. My students ALWAYS improve. My most recent SAT student scored a 760 (out of 800) on the Verbal section!

Thanks for your consideration.

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 a 3-year diploma from Moody Bible Institute and an MA from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. I have taught Bible in Sunday School classes for many different ages over a 30 year period, and have led Bible studies in an adult small group setting for for than 15 years. I own many different Bible study reference books.

ESL/ESOL

I have several years of experience teaching ESL. I've taught all levels from beginners to advanced, working mostly with adults. My experience includes working at the Cambridge Schools in New York (near the UN), and the Somerville Center for Adult Learning (near Boston).

I'm able to explain the ins and outs of English grammar. It can be confusing, but it's helpful for adults learning English to know the rules. I'm also able to help students grow their vocabulary and improve their reading and writing skills.

GRE

I have many years of test prep tutoring experience, including the GRE. The GRE is a big challenge, but I've been through it myself, and have helped others through it.

Building vocabulary is an important key to success. I have techniques and resources to help with that. Analyzing reading passages and persuasive arguments is another important skill. I have important tips for improving this capability.

In the Quantitative section, I can help you identify how and when to simplify. While my strength lies in the Verbal sections, I have significant experience helping students with Math as well.

ISEE

In 2009 I trained and worked with Kaplan Test Prep. Since then, I've worked with more than 6 ISEE students, With my instruction, encouragement, and motivation, my students have always seen their scores improve. I'm able to help students with all sections of the ISEE (Math and Verbal) at any Level (Lower, Middle, and Upper).

SSAT

In 2009 I trained and worked with Kaplan Test Prep. Since then, I've worked with more than 6 SSAT students, With my instruction, encouragement, and motivation, my students have always seen their scores improve. I'm able to help students with all sections of the SSAT (Math and Verbal) at any Level (Elementary, Middle, and Upper).
