Excellent for College Essays!

Paul is a very respectful and understanding individual who really does his best to ensure as much perfection as possible when looking at essays. I sent him several essays to review and offer any help he could for colleges and scholarships, and he always does an excellent job. He responds with helpful edits in a very timely manner, as quick as one day. I strongly recommend all high school students needing help on college essays to go to Paul. He has been extremely helpful in this very stressful and overwhelming college admission process.

Great tutor!

I needed someone to go over my college application essay and supplements. Paul was the perfect person to do so. Not only was he able to respond in a very timely manner, but he was practically a life-saver. Even if something very last minute came up for him to proofread, he would still be able to do it. He is very knowledgeable and gives very good constructive criticism. Overall, my college essay writing process was much smoother with Paul's help.
