Harvard Grad for Academic Tutoring and Test Prep
Hi! I'm Paul. I have been tutoring and teaching since I was in high school. I am very patient and never judgmental; I see my role as working with students to reduce stress, not increase it. I work with learners of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds. My clients have ranged from those looking to pass their GED to grad school students working on economics and econometrics.

Hi! I'm Paul. I have been tutoring and teaching since I was in high school. I am very patient and never judgmental; I see my role as working with students to reduce stress, not increase it. I work with learners of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds. My clients have ranged from those looking to pass their GED to grad school students working on economics and econometrics. Having lived in several different countries, I particularly enjoy working with international students, since I have been an international student myself when studying outside the U.S.
I formerly taught classes and individuals for SAT and GRE prep for Kaplan. This includes math, verbal, and analytical writing; in short, all sections of these exams. I have helped students prepare for the GED, ACT, SAT, GRE, and with coursework in economics, statistics, econometrics, math, English, writing, history, geography, Spanish, French, social studies, and more.
I help my students master not only the material they need to learn, but also their confidence in being able to do well in class and on tests. I have lots of experience in helping others learn how to manage their test anxiety, so they can perform at their best without nerves getting in their way.
I have degrees from Harvard, University of California at Berkeley, and Georgetown. I have achieved perfect scores on all sections of the SAT and GRE. But more than just being a good student and test-taker myself, I have learned to really listen to my clients' needs and present new information in a variety of ways until we find one together that clicks, and the student has that enlightening moment of reaching a new level of understanding.
Please note that I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, which means that you will still be billed if you cancel a session less than 24 hours in advance. (I instated this policy to be able to plan my schedule with reasonable certainty to serve the many students I work with.)
I look forward to meeting you and to helping you work successfully towards your goals!
Paul has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 12 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Paul was very good at helping my son with his writing and was very approachable and easy to talk to. He is a great tutor for anyone as he is very open with his ideas and doesn’t make it a one-sided conversation. The one thing I would ask for some improvement is about concision. At one point in the lesson, he talked a lot about how artificial suspense wasn’t something we should do, and then ended with saying that the writing piece in question didn’t have this. I appreciate the level of depth he went into on this topic, but I feel that this feedback could have been given. With that being said; he is a great tutor overall and I would highly recommend to anyone who needs help with their writing.QING, 1 lesson with Paul

Fantastic SAT Tutor for both Math and English
We hired Paul to help our son with his SAT prep. Our son learned many techniques from Paul to apply while studying for the test and for the actual test day. Paul is extremely knowledgeable. Our son is much more confident going into the test this weekend. Paul was wonderful to work with!Norma, 6 lessons with Paul
I would say he went out of his way to make sure I understood, but I don’t think it was out of his way; he’s a natural teacher who thoroughly enjoys teaching. I wasn’t rushed through the material, he made a point to stop and explain things from every angle!Annabel, 2 lessons with Paul
