About Paolo


Bio

My name is Paolo S. and I am a PhD student at the University of Virginia. Since high school, I would often tutor friends in chemistry. Initially, it was a hobby that helped me review material, but I later on found out that tutoring and teaching is a source of inspiration for me. Specifically, I love helping students understand complex concepts and introducing them to the beauty, complexity, and nuance that make up Chemistry.

My name is Paolo S. and I am a PhD student at the University of Virginia. Since high school, I would often tutor friends in chemistry. Initially, it was a hobby that helped me review material, but I later on found out that tutoring and teaching is a source of inspiration for me. Specifically, I love helping students understand complex concepts and introducing them to the beauty, complexity, and nuance that make up Chemistry.

I have been tutoring in chemistry and sciences since I was 16. I have tutored middle school and high school students, but my main experience lies with university students. I am teaching undergraduate courses at my current institution, and have a total of 4 years of university level teaching experience in my subject.

I was born and raised in Luino, Italy, a very picturesque town on Lake Maggiore. I love reading and playing sports, especially basketball. I am always enthusiastic about meeting new students with different backgrounds! I hope I can be of help.

Chemistry

I have been teaching undergraduate General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry labs at University level. I have been an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant and I am a Graduate Teaching Assistant where I interact with students daily, helping them figure out how to tackle and solve problems. I have also been tutoring for several years in those areas of chemistry, mainly to university students who needed help consistently throughout semesters.

Knowledgeable and Professional Tutor

We are extremely grateful to Paolo for his last minute accommodation in providing a Chemistry tutoring session. He provided some much needed concept reinforcement in preparation for my son’s Chemistry test, Paolo is a life saver!

One of the best tutors I have had

He has a love for Chemistry and it shows. He is very knowledgeable and makes the material we are going over during our session super easy to understand. He also is able to work with my schedule I have and even accommodate at times if I asked for a last minute session. He is by far one of the best tutors I have had. If you need help in Chemistry I would recommend him to everyone.

Amazing College Chemistry Tutor

I am currently a freshman at UNL majoring in a science heavy major so it was very important to me that while going through some of the easier science classes, that I am really understanding all of the concepts. So for me I knew I wanted a tutor and Paolo could not have been a more perfect fit for me. He helps me with all my homework problems and then will come up with more example problems in order to ensure that I understand the concepts. I have had amazing results and he has prepared me so well for exam and I am scoring way above the class average every time. He also has a pretty flexible schedule and whenever I seem to need help he had time to tutor me. Overall I could not say enough great things about him. I have had plenty of tutors throughout my time in school and Paolo is special in the way he understand how I learn and then teaches to me in a way so that I can understand concepts really easily. If you are looking for any kind of chemistry tutor I 10/10 recommend him!

Very reliable and helpful at explaining chemistry

I like the way he explains concepts of chemistry that were different from how I was taught it. It helped me gain a new way of thinking or approach toward my work that was very helpful.

great teacher, patient and precise

Paola was awesome at going through the problems with me and explaining each step! With his teaching style he was able to not only allow me to watch him do an example but after I watched he had me do another example problem and was able to pinpoint if I needed to fix something, if I was doing well, or if I had confusion. I also appreciated the fact that we were able to practice multiple problems so I was able to see multiple examples and get good practice!

Good, Very patient

I was struggling a bit with the relate material and he helped me work through it in steady manner until I understood what to do.

Robin, 14 lessons with Paolo

Got an A!

Paolo helped me understand Stoichiometry in two lessons. These lessons helped me apply it to my test and got an A. He was very knowledgeable and was able to explain what I needed to do or what mistakes I made and how to correct them.
