I love to teach history. I am irresistibly compelled to help people to understand the world we live in by gaining a better understanding of its past. In short, I have a passion for my subject that is infectious. I spent nine years teaching history at Delaware County Community College, as well as at Rider University, and I am currently a volunteer instructor for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute affiliated with Widener University. My approach to teaching involves bringing clarity to complex topics and not assuming any prior knowledge of the subject in question. Because I simply find virtually every period in history, every location on the globe, and every aspect of human society interesting, I have developed a very broad knowledge base. I can bring the subject of history alive.

Paul is a very nice patient tutor that would help you through all your areas of struggles and motivate you to do better. If you need help with an assuagement he is the best! Because he will not only help you understand it and get it done, but also, he will give you feedback and comments on it ( which are very helpful). You will be very lucky to have Paul as your tutor. He really did help me a lot with my class :)
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.
Education: I earned a BA in Political Science from West Chester University in 1986 and a Masters in History from Temple University in 1994.

Dozens of my articles have been published in both professional journals and commercial magazines.
My lifelong study of history, including my work in earning a BA in Political Science and a Masters in History, has enabled me to develop a solid understanding of the civilizations of Ancient Greece and Rome, the foundation of Western Civilization. I have read extensively on and taught about the history of archaic and Classical Greece, the Hellenistic Age, and Republican and Imperial Rome. This includes the various aspects of these civilizations: their social and political orders, their religious beliefs and practices, their economies, their art, architecture, theater, literature, and intellectual achievements. In fact, I'm currently teaching a course on the decline and fall of the Roman Empire.
