About Paul

I am a graduate of California State University, Long Beach, where I earned a Master of Science degree in Applied Mathematics. Upon earning my master's degree, I began teaching in community colleges, where I learned to design my courses to increase student success. It is my goal to give my students a top quality education by providing them with an environment, where a complete and thorough understanding of the course material is provided.


My teaching experience includes seventeen years teaching mathematics at the high school, community college, and university levels and over twenty years of experience in education. My experience includes teaching all of the Developmental Mathematics courses, Statistics, most of the Calculus sequence at the College, and Eighth Grade Math through Pre-Calculus at the High School level. I have in fact taught most of the mathematics courses offered by community colleges, and am prepared and eager to teach any mathematics course your school offers.

I am an instructor who endeavors to improve and expand his teaching abilities. I, myself, am a learner. I search for new ideas and innovative teaching methods, and learn from my previous classes, how to improve future ones. What’s good enough for my students today, will not be good enough tomorrow. I try new approaches, although some may technically be mistakes. In the words of Thomas Edison, when he was questioned about all of his failures on his way to inventing the light bulb, he said, “I never failed, it was just a 1000-step process to succeed.” I am in process, and it is part of my process to attempt at least one new thing each semester. Past new things have included providing a tutorial session for my students before the tests, an office visit once during the semester for each student (more if they fail a test, as a form of intervention not punishment), giving my students practice tests, and observing and learning from other instructors. If you are willing to do your part, I will do every thing in my power to make sure that you understand the material.

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.

ACT Math

I have a Masters degree in Applied Mathematics and a Bachelors in Mathematics. I have over eighteen years of experience in the classroom at the university, community college, and high school levels. I have prepared several students for the ACT Math section. I have taught most math classes from Basic Math through Calculus 2.
