Wow! Wow! Wow! This was truly money and time well spent. I went into this lesson with no expectations, rather just with the hope of connecting well with a piano instructor that was not only well versed but could ease me into being a student. Paul is a rare treasure. He exceeded all my hopes of what I hoped to gain from my lessons. I would highly recommend him for any piano student. If you're looking to be challenged, and learn any genre of music,, don't wait...book your lessons with Paul. Thank you Paul. I'm looking forward to growing as a student.

Paul has been very patient and wonderful with my 6 year old son who has just started lessons.

I have returned to my passion for teaching young people mathematics. I understand how daunting math can be and how easy it is to feel left behind by the classroom teacher. We go at your pace. Math can be abstract. I will help you make the abstract real and relevant. Patience on my part is the most important part of the tutoring process.

It's amazing how our brain can absorb information in different ways. We can be learning something unintentionally. So whichever your circumstances are we should be open to learn or improve our skills every day. Remember, the process of learning never ends.

My name is Mena. I have a strong background in math with a degree in Actuarial science and have been tutoring the SAT, ACT, Algebra 1&2, and Geometry for over four years. I have extensive knowledge of the testing strategies needed to make the exam fun and easy. I work with students to find areas that need strengthening then work patiently with them to hone their skills. Successful test preparation is largely about demystifying the test through time spent learning the correct approach which I have years of experience doing, with that confidence students can achieve any score they set their minds to.
There is a SPECIAL PRICE if you buy the whole course including all study materials.

"After graduating high school and going into college, I can not express enough how grateful I am to have been taught by Mrs. Hill. Her notes and lessons are very organized and she knows where she what direction she wants her student's mind to head. Currently I am taking calculus in college and after having her class it feels like a breeze. Compared to other students in my class I feel very prepared and I do not stress at all over the class. In fact, there have been times I have had to teach other students to help them. This was all thanks to Mrs. Hills' teaching. Without her I would be in the same place as them. The way she taught was very nice and allowed you to learn the material well. Not only is she good at teaching she is also good at connecting with students. Many people leave high school and never want to see their teachers again, that is not the case with Mrs. Hill. She made the class a very comfortable and welcoming environment and I even contact her to this day just to say what's up. Not only did I feel like I gained a good education thanks to her but also a good friend. I highly recommend to anyone seeking help in any subject she teaches."
