About Paul

I reside in East Elmhurst, Queens and prefer to tutor within a few miles from me. Please do not contact me about tutoring if you live significantly far from East Elmhurst, as traveling time is very important to me. Due to my full-time job, I am available only on weekend days.

I graduated from an intensive teacher certification program at Hunter College with a master's degree in mathematics education. I am currently a high school math teacher at a public high school in Queens, and have used various strategies in an effort to help students become successful in math.

I do not have a great comfort level with 10th grade geometry (including constructions), but am knowledgeable of a good amount of the subject (NOT common core). Also, I do not tutor in PSAT or SAT math. My main areas of expertise are Integrated Algebra, Common Core Algebra 1, and Algebra 2/Trigonometry.

I absolutely love math and show my excitement for it daily in teaching my students. Many students struggle with this subject, and I have a great desire to help students understand and excel in it for the goal of succeeding not only in school but also for post-secondary pursuits that require making connections among concepts in problem-solving situations.
Based on my tutoring and teaching experiences, it brings me great joy for someone to benefit academically because I have helped him or her, and when a student understands a subject, he or she can truly enjoy and appreciate it as something that is valued more than just as a simple requirement to receive a passing grade in school.

Passion and dedication are necessary to be successful in any challenge in life, and I undoubtedly possess a great deal of enthusiasm and devotion when it comes to aiding students in the goal of improving their math skills and increasing their confidence and ability to master the subject, slowly but surely.

Great Tutor — Paul has tutoring my son in trigonometry for the past six months and has done an excellent job. My son was failing this subject and is now not only passing, but doing pretty well. Paul is extremely conscientious and takes his job very seriously. He is patient while at the same time holds my son accountable for doing his share of the work. I am very impressed with his commitment to his students ...
