As for my background, I have enjoyed tutoring through Wyzant for the past two years. For three years prior to that, I managed a private national learning center, working with students of all ages in test prep; homework support; remedial work; and enrichment in math, English, reading, and writing. I take pride in explaining concepts clearly, providing relevant examples, and seeing my students light up when they finally get it!

Having tutored ACT/SAT and other standardized tests for years, I am familiar with all concepts and all subjects, and I know how to explain the necessary skills & strategies to my students.

Many math tutors aren't as strong in verbal skills; I am the exception! Equally comfortable in math, reading, and writing, I've been generating great results in all subjects for years.

I have a Master's degree in Educational Leadership (with a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics) and have taken graduate-level teaching coursework. I am available days, evenings, and weekends. If you’re looking to use the summer break for advancement in math, English, reading, writing, or test prep, let's get started!

Elementary Education

Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

With twin boys in elementary school, I am familiar with the math taught at every elementary grade level (and I passed the Minnesota Teacher Licensing Exams for math with a perfect score on my very first attempt!). Since math is a cumulative subject, younger students will not progress simply by parroting algorithms; instead, new skills are facilitated only through deep understanding and mastery of prior skills. My approach is to teach the students so well that they can turn around and teach the newly learned skills to others.

Helpful and knowledgeable tutor.

Paul is an amazing tutor, he helped me prepare for the ACT. He was very knowledgeable about all of the sections of the test and he was able to provide many test taking tips. He was able to teach and review any sections that I struggled with. He was always early for our lessons and he made sure that I got the most benefit possible out of each session.

Emily, 7 lessons with Paul

Paul is friendly & fun!

My kids said it was fun to learn with Paul! Our first session flew by and both kids (separate sessions) were focused and interested the whole time.

Rebeccah, 121 lessons with Paul

Great tutor!

Paul helped my sons prepare for both the PSAT and SAT. He gave great tips, strategies, etc. for both tests that were tailored to my sons based on their skills and weaknesses. He was great at keeping me updated. It was also obvious that he cared about whether they succeeded. Thanks, Paul!

Amie, 12 lessons with Paul

Knowledgeable and did a great job

Paul did a nice job. Took the gig with short notice and stuck with it until everything was complete. He is very calm and helpful. He went through everything step by step and started from the most basic on each prob set.

Daniel, 1 lesson with Paul

Very experienced and prepared for his lesson!

It was very difficult to convince my son for the extra tutoring for language arts. We only had one lesson from Paul which my son is very happy about it. He is definitely a professional. We will continue working with him.

Elif, 1 lesson with Paul

Knowledgeable and Patient!

Paul taught me many strategies for the math section on our first tutor session. When we first started practicing I already felt more head of the game and it gave me a confident boost for the rest of my tutoring!
