About Paul

I was a student of a tutor myself. I've felt as if I was one step behind. Being afraid to be chosen in class for fear of embarrassment is an awful feeling. First and foremost, my intention is to throw out unrealistic expectations and establish attainable goals. With adherence to school guidelines, my hope is to build upon your strengths to bolster confidence toward areas where improvement is needed. To draw, you and I will not copy what others have done. The perception becomes "why can't I do that like they do?" instead of "this is what I see in my mind and it's fine." Elemental shapes are found everywhere in our world and they are the basis for how I teach one to draw.

I hold a BA in Communications from SUNY New Paltz and await certification as a NYS Teaching Assistant. Does that make me qualified to be a tutor? That is for you to decide. To add, I also have 20 years of experience in direct customer service where clear communication is crucial. I've presented in front of large groups with a confidence I never thought possible because of literacy. And I use to same approach to reading as I do in art so that together, we can reduce seemingly complex concepts to their most fundamental points. My tutoring method is simple: trust in yourself, lean on me, and you cannot fail.
