My son loved him

Mr A was able to connect with my son right away and my son enjoyed learning with him. Paul is very knowledgeable, and is a genuinely nice person. I was thoroughly impressed with him.

Perfect Fit

Paul was a great fit for our son. He obviously knows how to relate to kids and makes the sessions enjoyable. He helped refresh and refine our son's pre-Albegra/Algebra skills to boost his confidence going into the school year. Our son loved him.
