About Paul

Dear Potential Students,

I am writing to you in the hopes that you will consider me to become your tutor so I can use my 15 years of teaching experience to ensure your academic success. I decided to go into teaching because I always felt that making a difference in a student's life will make a difference in my life. I started my teaching career in New York City, fostering young minds for many diverse populations. Then, I continued teaching in the Worcester, MA area working with many diverse students before I spent the past eight years working in the juvenile justice system. Throughout my fifteen years of in the teaching profession, I have taught various subjects ranging from History, English Language Arts, and Math ranging from advanced students to those in special education.
In my classroom experience, being able to work one on one with a student has increased their opportunity for success. Whether it happens in the classroom, or after school, giving students a personalized education helps them to achieve their best results. Through active listening and questioning, I showed students different ways to solve a math problem or write an essay so they can do the work independently and own their success.
If you choose me to be your tutor, I will promise that I will do everything in my ability and experience to make sure you succeed in your academic endeavors. I will make sure that our sessions are challenging but not overwhelming. Most importantly, I will help you own your educational experience giving you the tools you need to succeed in your academic endeavors. My main goal is to enable you with the study skills you need so you do not have to have a tutor!
Please feel free to contact me anytime. I will do my best to get in touch with you as quickly as possible. Your educational success is my first priority.

Sincerely yours,
Paul
