About Paul

One of my best attributes is empathy. I can determine where a student is at in the learning process by spending time observing and discussing their learning experience. This quality helped me to be effective in my instruction over the years of teaching traditional and online students in the clinical environment. I am also an enthusiastic Instructor who can motivate his students to be engaged learners. My keen sense of listening helps me to understand where a student struggles. This has always made me an effective communicator for them. I am positively diverse in my outlook and see the best in all students that I teach.
I have become familiarized with current best practice learning tools and can balance the use of technology with the learning styles and needs of my students. Whenever possible I will use collaborative projects as part of a lesson plan. My goal is to stay updated on new technology and pedagogies for future practice.

Some examples of learning tools I use are BlackBoard, Coursera, Prezi, Symbaloo, power point, WebQuest, Google tools, Microsoft tools, Knewton Adaptive Learning, and LITRE Assessment. I seek to use in my teaching methods curricula that provides, student Centered learning, collaborative learning, up-to-date instructional design, thorough and effective modes of communication, projects that include group facilitation where appropriate.

I have 20+ years of experience in Allied Health as a Registered Respiratory Therapist in addition to the 10+ Years in clinical instruction. I enjoy passing on what I've learned through my education and experience in the sciences. My undergraduate work consisted of two cognates: Health & Social Sciences. My graduate work was in Education: Teaching and Learning Online Educational Technology and Instruction. I enjoy working with students one-on-one or in groups. If you have access to a laptop and/or mobile device we can create together an effective learning experience for you using the best of what technology has to offer. I will work hard with you to meet your educational goals.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Anatomy

Human anatomy teaching is part of my experience in clinical instruction. Software apps available today make the learning experience more successful. I include the use of those apps in lessons to improve the understanding and application of human anatomy to healthcare.

Bible Studies

I have taken several courses in my history church related Sunday school through Berean School of the Bible (Now Global University). These courses and grades are listed on my transcripts. Also, during my studies at Liberty University, I took several mandatory courses of Religious studies.

GED

If you have access to Google tools like Google Docs, Google Hangouts, I am able to offer the following in an educational context by using some of the great online resources.

1.) the initiation, planning interactive lessons to ensure student progress.

2.) analysis of assessment data to provide remediation and promote the acquisition of skills.

3.) The curriculum design and implementation to develop effective courses, which respond to community needs.

Microsoft Word

One of the most used tools for creating documents is Microsoft Word (TM). I've used this application throughout my education and find it to be easy to work with. Many students will see this tool improve as the education field evolves in the latest technology. Once this tool is learned, many tools similar to MS Word can be easily adapted to. I plan to become proficient in more software applications besides MS word to improve my teaching abilities.

Physiology

I am qualified to teach physiology due to having instructed clinical students. In order to apply the work of allied health, students have been challenged in my instruction to think critically about the many procedures they will have to practice in healthcare. during my undergraduate studies I remained in the top 2 in Anatomy and Physiology. I assisted other students many times during lab practice.

Psychology

My undergraduate and graduate studies included several courses in psychology in the Health & Social Sciences. A good understanding of the psychology of human beings helps one to serve others with with more compassion and empathy. Understanding psychology comes natural to me as I always seek growth of my own self awareness and the uniqueness we all are bring to the world. I believe I am qualified to tutor the subject of psychology due to the previously mentioned reasons as well as having worked toward my degree in Education I can break down lessons that will build on previous knowledge of the subject.
