Paul has been very patient and wonderful with my 6 year old son who has just started lessons.
Lorenzo S.
My first lesson was great. Mr. Paul was very patient and judged my skill level before making a lesson plan. Initially I was nervous, because I have never taken lessons before, but that quickly went away. I can definitely tell that he knows his stuff when it comes to teaching. He a great teacher and conversationalist.
Kennedy B.
Paul was very pleasant. He thoroughly explained things to my daughter in a manner that she could understand. He listened to her play and they also played together.

This was her first flute lesson with Paul, but she's already looking forward to the next lesson.

Using my vocal and acting training, I have worked with many students on improving their speaking voices for public speaking or voice-over work. I use Linklater , and Alexander technique combined with other training to help students overcome their fear of public speaking as well as their technical vocal issues, such as articulation, projection, breathing problems and modulating the voice in a pleasant way. I can help you overcome an overly nasally tone for example or a monotone voice.

About Wendy

I've been teaching private vocal instruction since 2003, and opened my own studio in 2008. I love helping people find their true, authentic voice, which I feel is essential not only for singers but many other people as well! Singing is a great joy, and the voice is one of our primary modes of expre

Background Check
This teacher successfully passed a thorough criminal background check with SterlingBackcheck. This badge verifies trusted teacher status.

My previous ten years’ experience in tutoring High School Math and my education have made me a capable and experienced tutor in Math especially Algebra. My teaching will have tangible results from the get-go. Most importantly, I will create an interest in the subject that will help my students to take ‘serious interest’ in it. That will be my greatest contribution to my students. With the new motivation and interest, together we can make solid progress to the satisfaction of my students and their parents/guardians. As I have done many times before my students will have at least one letter grade improvement. However, if one follows my direction religiously, getting ‘A’ in Algebra will be within reach. That’s what I strive for.
Fundamentals or building block is the first thing that I teach my students who are struggling in Algebra while those who have a good grasp on fundamentals are taught intermediate to advanced level concepts and various approaches to handle solving problems.

I love the English language, and I try to help students enjoy it as well. I especially enjoy grammar! My favorite thing about teaching grammar is finding fun ways for students to learn it (since most people do not particularly enjoy grammar). :)

"Marie A. Is an awesome teacher, she knows how to set the atmosphere for her students to learn the information she's sharing with them. It was an honor to be part of her class because when I didn't understand something she came down to my level of understanding to help me understand what I did not understand. She's very caring, outgoing, amazing personality and she's a person that love to encourage people. I've never encounter such a loving teacher, meeting her triggers me to become a teacher myself."

I have problems understanding English literature very often because I am not a native speaker and Tom helped me with patience understanding English literature from context, background of the author and writing habits. Through his instructions I can finally appreciate the beauty of English literature like I appreciate the literature works in my mother tongue. From Shakespeare to Mark Twain I travelled through ages and time when I read, think about and ponder upon their masterpieces. Most importantly I am able to understand them, and it feels amazing.
