Teaching since:
January 2015

Hi! My name is Paulina and I teach computer magic! I recently spent three semesters teaching at my Alma mater, the University of Southern California (as Paulina Grey - check RateMyProfessor!) where I earned my B.S. in Computer Science with a minor in Digital Forensics. That is where I taught information security and introductory and intermediate C++ programming classes. At the same time, I was working for a private, Los Angeles-based digital forensics firm.

I am also an ordained minister and certified spiritual counselor. I have traveled the world and have know and loved many cultures. My life has been filled with many lessons of pain and peace as I have grown spiritually and energetically. I have spent many years in self-development and, now, I choose to inspire those who need more energy in their own lives.

Paulina is incredible. She made it simple to understand memory structures, objects, security design and logic constructs. Her diverse background enables some interesting conversations as well! Very motivational teacher; the best I've ever seen.
