About Paul

I am currently a professional artist (painter) living and working in center city, Philadelphia. Prior to my current career, I owned a Public Relations firm in Boston where I specialized in partnering corporations with charitable causes. I have a Ph.D in Humanities from Syracuse University (NY) and a master's in Philosophy/English from Boston College (MA). I have lectured here and abroad on communications, taught English and theater at the university and prep school level. I have published several articles and a book on ritual. I am an expert and patient teacher who loves to teach English and communications to eager students.
I am very interested in helping students whose first language is French or Spanish improve their written and spoken English as I am somewhat proficient in these languages I find that knowing a student's native language and its structure helps me explain the structure and sounds of the English language.

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.

I lectured here and abroad on the topic of contemporary ritual expression.
