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 past clients have ranged from those looking to pass their GED to students working on their Master's degrees in 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 past clients have ranged from those looking to pass their GED to students working on their Master's degrees in 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.)
Outside the times when I'm happily busy working with students, I also enjoy yoga, meditation, walks in the woods and by the creeks and lakes around Dallas, seeing what vegetables are coming up in my tiny garden, and fostering kittens and puppies for animal rescue groups.
I look forward to meeting you and to helping you work successfully towards your goals!

Paul was a big help on very short notice. He is very knowledgeable and did a great job explaining the concepts. Would definitely use him again in the future.Tanya, 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
Very helpful on improving scores
My daughter decided to use Christmas break to try and improve her scores on the GRE. She loved working with Paul and greatly improved her score! He was especially helpful on the Quantitative section. I highly recommend.Inna, 4 lessons with Paul
My kid is really, really optimistic that Paul will help him do his best. Paul as is smart as they come, and totally defuses any anxiety that comes with learning new moves.Marc, 48 lessons with Paul
Paul is so great with our son helping him with his AP Stats class. He's been maintaining an A in that course all semester thanks to Paul helping him out. He's very patient and explains everything in ways to help him learn better. Paul has even helped our son with history when he needed help studying for a test. Paul is a great tutor who loves to help and wants our son to succeed. I would definitely use Paul for any of your tutoring needs. He is very smart and knows a lot about many subjects.Pam, 13 lessons with Paul
Helpful SAT Prep
Paul has been very patient and thorough in working with my son. My son's scores have improved markedly. We would highly recommend him to others for SAT preparation.Nancy, 18 lessons with Paul
My son has had many math tutors, Paul was the best in many ways. My son has never been able to sit down for two hours at a time to do school work. He worked with Paul in two hour sessions and never became frustrated or impatient. He remained engaged and I could tell from the questions that Paul asked that he was learning and not just trying to get through it like he usually does. My son really connected with Paul. Very grateful for his help.Lisa, 13 lessons with Paul
