Update regarding COVID-19 guidelines: I use separate backpacks and supplies for each family with whom I work; I do not share teaching materials or supplies between families. Also, as long as "social distancing" is being recommended, I only work from homes (not from libraries or other public places such as coffee shops). There is no cancellation charge when the cancellation is due to illness; I do not tutor when sick, nor will I tutor a student when there is a sickness in the home.

Our society is increasing the academic expectations for students of all ages; consequently, many students need extra support to thrive. That’s where I come in! I help bridge the gap between academic expectations and one-on-one expertise. Contact me to set up a schedule for keeping your student(s) moving forward all throughout the school year!

As for my background, I have enjoyed tutoring through Wyzant for the past four 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! I also believe in giving back to others, and was recognized last year as an “Above and Beyond” volunteer in the Shakopee School District.

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. Whenever possible, I incorporate standardized test strategies and study skills into all of my tutoring activities.

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, eveni

Elementary Education

Elementary (K-6th)

A parent of twin elementary-age boys, I have a master's degree in education and a bachelor's degree in math. I've been helping elementary students with reading, writing, and math for the past five years (having passed my Minnesota Teacher Licensing Exams with perfect and near-perfect scores in math and verbal, respectively).
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.

Phonics, vocabulary, fluency, spelling,, and comprehension are the five primary strands of effective reading.

Great approach with teenagers!

Paul helped my son put together all the pieces in his Algebra 2/Tri honors class which he was struggling with due to missing several weeks at the start of school. We plan to hire Paul again when he needs additional help.

Elizabeth , 1 lesson with Paul

Great first meeting

My son really warmed up to Paul after a short amount of time. My son is shy and anxious especially around new people. After the lesson he felt very comfortable and was happy with the session. So was I.

Christine, 5 lessons with Paul

Wonderful Math Tutor!

Paul is patient, knowledgeable, and very kind. His sessions are well focused and his follow up information is detailed and helpful. We are happy to be working with him. Thank you, Paul!

Eva, 36 lessons with Paul

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, 372 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!
