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.

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.

Conor, 7 lessons with Paolo

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.

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.

Very Patient

Paolo is nice, patient, smart and very responsive. He breaks down the material I’m learning and explains it to me step by step. He does this with all the patients in the world. I remember when I was first looking for a chemistry tutor which was like 4 or 5 weeks ago and I remember scrolling down the pages and seeing his profile and clicking on it. I noticed that he was different from the rest of the tutors whose profile I had opened and read. In his bio instead of just bragging about his accomplishments and what he got on standardized tests. He introduced himself and talked about his background, hobbies and what made him fall in love with chemistry and teaching. The reason why I’m noting this and find this to be so important is because I have learned that it doesn’t matter what school you go to or how smart you are. What matters when working with students is who you are as a person and how well your able to communicate and explain the material to that student. I feel like he does a great job at that. I would recommend him to any student struggling with chemistry!

Outstanding Chemistry Tutor

Paolo made Chemistry clear to me for the first time. Not only did he explain homework questions i thought I sort of got, but he helped me learn how to write information needed for labs. He helped me understand the correlation of evidence to analysis in Chemistry. My grades have improved. I finally get it, thanks to Paolo. I would hightly recommend him to any student who wants to improve their understanding and scores.

Very helpful and patient

I have a math learning disability and Mr. Paolo taught me in a way that I could understand what I’m learning and apply the rules as I go. My dyscalculia makes me very forgetful to formulas, but he was so kind and had no problem reminding me and showing me why something was the way it was. Helped me beyond measure, first time I understood what has been going on in class. Kept up with my slower pace. Greatly appreciated Mr. S!

Knowledgable and Patient

Pablo did a superb job helping my son with chemistry! My son had a list of question which Pablo looked at in advance. He answered all his questions and made the material much more understandable. We will definitely use Pablo again as a tutor. Highly recommend.
