About Paul

Before starting with Wyzant, I managed a private learning center for three years, 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/GRE/ASVAB for years, I am familiar with all concepts for all subjects, and I know how to explain the necessary skills & strategies to my students.

Many math/science tutors aren't as strong in grammar and writing skills; I am the exception! I can work with you on ALL SUBJECTS—reading, writing, and math, from elementary through adult—and have been generating great results for years!

I have a Master's degree in Educational Leadership, as well as a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics. I am available during the day to work with adult students and home-bound or home-school students. If you would like extra support with math, English, reading, and/or writing, let's get started!

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.

ACT English

For over three years I have been helping students improve their scores on the ACT English section, including punctuation, grammar, style, clarity, diction, and conciseness. I have had excellent results working with students on ALL SECTIONS of the ACT: English, math, reading, science, and essay writing.

ACT Math

For over three years I have been helping students improve their ACT math scores. I have had excellent results working with students on ALL SECTIONS of the ACT: English, math, reading, science, and essay writing.

ACT Reading

For over three years I have been helping students improve their scores on the ACT reading section. I have had excellent results working with students on ALL SECTIONS of the ACT: English, math, reading, science, and essay writing.

ACT Science

For over three years I have been helping students improve their scores on the ACT science section. ACT science prep primarily involves...reading! The ACT science section does not test science knowledge; instead, it measures your ability to read scientific literature, connect the dots in a logical way, and apply the scientific method to the experiments presented in the passage.

Algebra 1

I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics, a master's degree in education (3.93 GPA), and a short-call substitute teaching license in Minnesota. I have taken graduate-level teaching coursework at Bemidji State University, and have had success tutoring Algebra 1 & 2 students for more than three years.

Algebra 2

I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics, and have been tutoring Algebra 2 students for over three years. I work with students of all ages, from elementary through precalculus.

ASVAB

For over three years I have been helping students achieve their best results on standardized tests (ASVAB, ACT, SAT, and others). For the ASVAB, I am particularly experienced in the following four sections: 1) Arithmetic Reasoning; 2) Word Knowledge; 3) Paragraph Comprehension; and 4) Mathematical Knowledge.

Bible Studies

I have an MA in Educational Leadership from Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN. As part of this degree, I also completed the standard Master of Divinity sequence of theology courses at Bethel Seminary in St. Paul.

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.

English

Having studied multiple languages (English, Spanish, and Greek) I have acquired a high-level view of English grammar, vocabulary, and style. Whether your student wants to strengthen grammar skills, writing skills, or reading and analytical skills, I can help!

Geometry

I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics, and have been tutoring students in geometry for over three years. I have had success with students of all ages, from elementary through adult.

Grammar

Having studied the workings of multiple languages (English, Spanish, and Greek) I have acquired a high-level understanding of how to craft sentences & paragraphs. Let's get to work and help your student master the complexities & nuances of English grammar!

GRE

I have had more than three years of success helping students raise their GRE scores in all areas: quantitative, verbal, and writing. With a masters degree of my own (3.93 overall GPA) I'm ready to work with you to raise your readiness level!

MTLE

I passed the MTLE Basic Skills test with a perfect score of 300 in math, and near perfect scores of 295 and 294 in reading and writing, respectively.

Prealgebra

I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics, a master's degree in education, and have taken graduate-level teaching coursework at Bemidji State University. I've been tutoring students in prealgebra and many other math subjects for over three years.

Probability

I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics and a master's degree in education, with graduate-level teaching coursework from Bemidji State University. I have had success tutoring students of probability and statistics for over three years.

PSAT

I have been helping students prep for ALL SECTIONS of the PSAT test for over three years.

Religion

I have a master's degree from Luther Seminary, where I studied Christian history & theology, New & Old Testament studies, Koine Greek, Christianity in Africa & Asia, and Islam. I also have completed the full MDiv theology sequence at Bethel Seminary, earning a perfect 4.0 GPA in theology (3.93 overall).

SAT Math

Working for three years at a nationally known tutoring center, I helped many students improve their SAT math skills.

SAT Reading

For over three years I have been helping students improve their scores on the SAT verbal section. I have had excellent results working with students on ALL SECTIONS of the SAT: verbal, math, and essay writing.

SAT Writing

You need more than routine writing skills for SAT/ACT/GRE essays. You need a plan, you need to practice, and I can help!

Writing

During my three years at a nationally known tutoring center (Sylvan Learning) I helped many students learn to write better papers, stories, and essays. I worked with students on the entire process: idea generation, outline, drafting, revising, and publishing.

Amazing teacher! Highly recommended!!

We have nothing but positive things to say about Paul H! In just a couple weeks he brought my daughters Geometry grade from a D- to a B-. He was very patient, tailored to her learning style and broke everything down so she could understand it. He always responded to my messages immediately and was extremely flexible in scheduling. He even accommodated lessons in 2 different locations and handled s
