I have a positive, reinforcing, and encouraging teaching style with endless patience. I also enjoy proofreading and helping structure your writing and essay work. I've taught for many years at Kaplan Learning Centers SAT, GRE, and MCAT courses, and also have experience working with ESL students, both children and adults. I'm a graduate of the University of Washington with Bachelor of Science degrees in Chemistry, Microbiology, and Immunology and a doctorate degree from the School of Medicine.

Swimming

Swimming

I have swam since an early age, and swam at the state level in high school. I completed at the national level in triathlons (best finish 11th overall in the US), and international races. I especially like working with children, and like to make swimming fun as it has been for me. Understanding body mechanics, and relating that to the children will make swimming second nature to them.

Excellent Tutor

Paul continues to be an excellent tutor for my daughter. We've been using him for about 1.5 years now for various subjects. He's very knowledgeable in quite a few subjects. I highly recommend!

A gem!

Paul was great with my son. he listened to my concerns and took the time to gradually help him understand the material, and hopefully like it better in the future- He is all around a great person, knowledgeable, reactive, patient and reliable- I would hire him again no problem.
