About Paul

As a Special Education Para-Professional I accommodate students with the right classroom environment, materials, and guidance to enhance their academic performance. Working with a Junior High School has helped me to understand the type of help my students need to succeed. As a teacher aid, I read aloud to my students in order to break down any material that's being presented. While collaborating with the teachers, we devise strategies to inspire learning, desire, and positive behavior. If the students do not love what they are doing, it's our job to find a way to connect the lesson to their lives, and encourage them to seek more knowledge. Tutoring will give me a chance to display my teaching experience in hopes to increase the academic level of students throughout the district of Petersburg, VA.

I work with students one on one on a daily basis. While attending VSU, I was able to study Special Education through a variety of courses. With an overall study of Interdisciplinary studies, I was able to earn my Bachelors of Science In Community Based Education in May of 2015.

Throughout my years of grade school I participated in numerous sports activities. I was a part of my High School football team and track team. In addition, I learned Mixed Martial Arts, Kickboxing, Judo, Taekwondo, and soccer. I've learned how to become a good teammate, leader, and student when learning about these sports. I also studied First Aid Medical support, Weightlifting, and with Health Awareness.
