About Paul

In 1991, I returned to college at Cape Cod Community College to pursue a career in engineering. After my first year, I was approached by a school sponsored program, the Student Support Services Program, to become a chemistry tutor. The program worked with returning student as well as those with learning disabilities. I was given training in tutoring techniques, working with students with learning disabilities and English as a second language (ESL). For the next 2 years, I tutored in Chemistry and all math classes up to the Calculus II level. I found the experience enjoyable and rewarding.

I moved on to Massachusetts Maritime Academy in 1994 and, through the Work Study Program, I was again hired as a tutor. I was given a room in the Academy library, 3 times a week for 3 hours, and I was available for tutoring in all math, science, and engineering courses. It was a workshop environment, and I would work with students in multiple courses at the same time, moving from study table to study table. Again, it was enjoyable and rewarding. I graduated as the Class Valedictorian in 1996. I worked internationally in the oil and insurance business, but ultimately decided to come home to enjoy my grand children, (3 with another on the way). I am now a Licensed General Contractor, doing high end finish carpentry, as well as hanging custom window treatments that my wife makes in her own workshop.

I look forward to more enjoyable & rewarding work as a tutor, inspired as always as I see the light go on as students grasp the difficult concepts of math and science.

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.

Algebra 2

I have tutored students in many levels of mathematics, including Algebra 2.

Calculus

I am a graduate of Massachusetts Maritime Academy and worked as a tutor both there and as a staff tutor at 4 C's. I worked in the offshore drilling industry for many years, first learning, then teaching and training new employees. I have been with Wyzant for several years.

Physics

I have worked as a tutor at Cape Cod Community College and at Mass Maritime prior to offering my services here at Wyzant. I have tutored students in many subjects, including Physics, Chemistry, and Calculus.

Paul is very personable and works well with my daughter.

My daughter complains about almost everything, but has not complained about her sessions with Paul. It is good review and she is happy to be engaged with this material this summer.
