About Paul

I majored in piano with a minor in oboe at the School of Music at the Naval Amphibious Base in Norfolk, VA when I was in the Marines.

I spent three semesters tutoring college algebra/pre-calculus at Howard Community College after completing an extremely rigorous math assessment test. I had students tell me they were going to drop their math course until I started working with them.

Tutoring is what I do best, and I find it very fulfilling.

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 1

I've tutored precalculus at Howard Community College, which includes geometry, Algebra I and II, and linear algebra.

Algebra 2

I’ve tutored precalculus at Howard Community College, which includes geometry, algebra I and II, and linear algebra. I accept whatever level the student is currently at. Then I build on it. I've had college students who had difficulty adding fractions with different denominators. One can add to a student's knowledge and understanding from wherever we begin.

Elementary Math

I've tutored precalculus at Howard Community College. I've had college students who had problems adding and subtracting fractions. It's never too early to provide a student with a solid foundation in math, and precalculus includes arithmetic, geometry, algebra, linear algebra, positive and negative numbers, exponents, logarithms, equations with one or more variables, and systems of equations.

Geometry

I've tutored precalculus at Howard Community College. Precalculus includes geometry as well as Algebra I and II and Linear Algebra, and I can assure you that WyzAnt requires its tutors to pass a rather rigorous geometry exam before allowing us to apply for geometry tutoring positions.

Linear Algebra

My best qualification is the three consecutive semesters I spent as a college algebra tutor at Howard Community College in Columbia, MD. That and placing in the 98th percentile on my SATs indicates my knowledge of the subject. I never seek to dazzle my students with what I know. My goal is to help them gain a thorough understanding, problem solving methods and the confidence to perform well on tests.

Piano

I had private piano lessons from the age of five. I attended the School of Music at the Naval Amphibious Base in Norfolk, Virginia when I was in the Marines. There I studied music theory and majored in piano with a minor in oboe. I've been the keyboard player in several bands.

Prealgebra

I've tutored precalculus at Howard Community College, and I provide a proven method of problem solving. The problem solving method is particularly useful with word problems.

Precalculus

I've tutored pre-calculus at Howard Community College, which includes topics such as exponents, logarithms, geometry, trigonometry, imaginary numbers, and systems of equations.
