About Paul

I am an enthusiastic teacher who believes that the best learning occurs when the you engaged and having fun. At the same time, I expect you to work hard and show the same dedication to your goals as I do. The trick is, as with all great learning, that you won't realize how hard you have been working during your improvement because it won't feel like "work."

I graduated summa cum laude from Boston University (BA English) and then obtained a Master's in Education from Harvard University. Over the past seventeen years, I have had the pleasure of helping thousands of students achieve their standardized test goals, and I'm proud to have had "graduates" achieve acceptance to all of the top 50 universities in the United States.

Each course is designed with the student's strengths and weaknesses in mind, from which I will provide a unique curriculum and individualized practice material. The focus of this curriculum is to challenge the student and, as soon as the student has achieved a new level, to then again raise the bar. This is also achieved through homework, which is assigned after each lesson.

I look forward to teaching and learning with you!

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.

College Counseling

I have been helping both American and international students apply to universities for 11 years. I have counseled them on university choice and guided them through the application process. My focus is to ensure that each student can tell their complete story, in their own words, through every application. Furthermore, I am obsessed with ensuring that every word of every application is perfect and uniquely tailored to each specific university.

During my career, I have helped students gain admission to all of the top 50 universities in the US (as ranked by US News & World Report 2016).

SAT Reading

I have taught SAT Reading prep for 17 years, and have helped dozens of students achieve perfect reading scores. I have been able to help students of all levels and abilities significantly improve their reading scores by improving both their comprehension abilities and test-taking strategies.

SAT Writing

I have taught SAT Writing since its initial introduction in 2005. I have helped hundreds of students improve by more than 200 points on this section, as well as dozens of students achieve perfect writing scores. Since the introduction of the New SAT and its rhetorical analysis essay, I have helped several students achieve essay scores of 22 - 24.

SAT Help

Paul taught me how to write a concise essay more beautifully for SAT. He also taught me how to make choices for reading and writing questions I am weak at.
