About Paul

I've been published in academic journals at college and have published poetry and prose at Boston College. I am also a translator, and my translation of a classic of Romanian literature is currently going through the review process at Ignatius Press, and may be published within a year. I've also edited my professor's work at Brandeis University, cooperated with teenagers and young adults in a Non-for-profit organization in Romania.

My passion for learning and teaching pushes me to put all I have into my work. I have always felt a strong connection to children and my long-term goal is to be an educator. I have strong knowledge of world history (770/800 on the world history subject test in high school) and of writing (790/800 on the SAT in the writing section), and I also have strong knowledge of philosophy, theology, and world literature. I scored over the 90th percentile on the GRE in both reading and writing, and for my Master's in English (at Brandeis) my GPA was over 3.8. But these numbers mean little or nothing to me. My goal is to imbue my passion into those I teach, and nothing else. If I am successful in this I would consider myself very lucky and happy indeed.

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.

Bible Studies

I earned an A in Dayton's Haskin's Boston College course 'Classical and Biblical Backgrounds of English Literature' and the translation of Steinhardt's book 'The Journal of Joy' into English, a classic of Romanian Christian literature. I have strong knowledge of Catholic and Protestant theology.
