About Paul

Hello! My name is Paul. My PhD in chemistry comes from the University of California - San Diego, where I spent two years at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. I earned BS (Honors) and masters degrees at the University of Missouri in Columbia. I taught college chemistry for six years before beginning my long career in industry. Since retiring in 2014, I have been a substitute in the Katy Independent School District (KISD) in Katy, Texas. In addition to chemistry, I teach math and other sciences.

I am an accomplished public speaker and speech writer, as evidenced by my numerous awards from Toastmasters International.

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.

Chemistry

I taught chemistry to college undergraduates at the University of Missouri, Columbia (2 years); UC San Diego (1 year); and the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana (2 years). I gave numerous lectures on petroleum refining chemistry to industry professionals between 2004 and 2014. In addition to teaching, I have more than 80 technical publications, including two handbooks on petroleum.

Public Speaking

I have won numerous contests sponsored by Toastmasters International. I won the 1989 Toastmaster of the Year in my local chapter in Brea, California. Professionally, I have presented technical papers at more than 40 international conferences.

Writing

I have published more than 80 technical papers, many of which I presented at international technical meetings. I edited more than 40 chapters for two books.
