While attending the University of Southern California, where I received my M.F.A., I worked as a writing tutor in the USC Writing Center and also taught Classical Greek Mythology. After graduation, I taught Verbal, Writing and Literature SAT classes and worked as a private tutor in a variety of subjects.
I later taught for five years at the New York Film Academy in Universal City, CA, where I taught a variety of Critical Studies classes to various levels of students, some in certificate programs and others working towards their M.F.A.
As a former English and Spanish double major, I have always enjoyed teaching at various levels. Most of my other work these days involves the writing and editing of short stories, screenplays and novels.
You’ll find that I have the education, background and experience to be an excellent instructor for your needs.
Taught Critical Studies to MFA, AFA, BFA and Certificate students. Duties included creation of syllabi, lectures, grading, office hours and thesis mentorships.
Individual and group instruction of SAT test materials for SAT Writing and Verbal tests as well as SAT II Literature tests.
Individual and group teaching of effective writing skills with students of all levels. Assisted in orientation of incoming consultants and took appointments, answered phones, assisted in administrative matters.
Teaching Assistant for Classical Greek Mythology. Taught two sections of 25 students each for five semesters. Duties included lecturing, group discussions, grading, student advisement and leading exam reviews in a class of 300.
Youth hockey coach. Two time Oregon state champion in that capacity (1994 and 1996).
Paul was my favorite teacher at the New York Film Academy.
Unlike most of the teachers, Mr. Paul put a lot of effort and creativity into planning his classes, which made them both stimulating and fun for us.
I also loved the fact that Mr. Paul always respected our opinions, and never made us feel stupid when we didn’t understand something. He was always very encouraging and willing to keep explaining until we got it.
I highly recommend him to anyone interested in extra lessons. He is definitely worth it!
