Hello, my name is Paul. I am excited about the learning process and I enjoy helping students learn. I graduated from Missouri State University with a B. A. in English, and then attended the University of Southern California, where I received a Masters in Librarianship.

Hello, my name is Paul. I am excited about the learning process and I enjoy helping students learn. I graduated from Missouri State University with a B. A. in English, and then attended the University of Southern California, where I received a Masters in Librarianship. I returned to Springfield to become a faculty member and librarian at Drury University where I taught formal courses in using the library for research and also worked with individual students and faculty at the reference desk to find information about their topics of interest. I moved from academia to the public library in Springfield where I worked for many years. Much of my work at the library involved one-on-one help with the public to find information, learn how to use library resources, and do research. I also taught a number of training classes for library staff locally, regionally, and statewide.
My approach with each student is based on my motto, which is “set yourself up for success.” Focus your energy and attention on the areas in which you can best improve your knowledge, skills, and abilities. Rely on your existing strengths. Work with successful teachers, tutors, and students. Learn from each one of them.
Environment and outside stimuli can profoundly affect your ability as a learner to incorporate new knowledge and be able to use it in test-taking situations and everyday life. My goal is to help you understand your strengths and weaknesses and learn how best to compensate for them in test-taking environments.
As a university and public librarian with over thirty years of experience, I am skilled in providing helpful tutoring geared to your needs. It would be my privilege and honor to work with you and to help prepare you for a bright future! I want to see you succeed and to experience the feeling that learning is a positive, exciting part of your life. I wish you the very best and much success. It would be my pleasure to assist you in your learning process.
Paul Duckworth is great at putting thought into perspective.
Paul Duckworth showed me how to immediately get people's attention. He explained how to keep readers interested and how I should ask the questions that they are thinking.Willie, 1 lesson with Paul

Very helpful tutor for your essay writing
Paul is very helpful. He helped me a lot. We have a good conversation. He helped me revise my essay very well. He is a good tutor. He revised many errors in my essay. Some of that is hard to point out if you are not a native speaker. He helped my essay become smoother.Yilin, 1 lesson with Paul
Everything I had hoped for!
From the moment I met Paul I felt comfortable. We were able to connect and go right to what my needs on the computer were. He knows how to approach the task at hand by making you feel like it is doable and presents things in a, one step at a time way. I am looking forward to working with Paul and conquering my fear and lack of knowledge with the mac. Thank you Paul!BJ, 6 lessons with Paul

Paul helped me edit my writing papers for my History class. He was very patient and resourceful in correcting my papers, especially formatting it to an APA form. Thank you Wyzant for having this site and for having him as a tutor. I will definitely consider him again as a tutor for my next writing class!Flor, 9 lessons with Paul

Very Patient and Knowledgeable
I had to get some assistance from a proofreading professional for my graduate-school paper. Mr. Paul was a great tutor and very helpful. He worked with me in such a very pressured schedule to finish what I required. He was very patient and professional. He exhibited great knowledge in his expertise. His rate was very reasonable and affordable. I definitely recommend him.Abdul, 3 lessons with Paul
