I scored in the 96th percentile on the SAT. When I was an undergraduate at Trinity University, I was exempt from taking the required English courses due to my high SAT scores in reading and writing.

He was experienced and very caring for my daughter to feel comfortable.
It was a first piano lesson for my 7 year old and she bragged about how she enjoyed the class. I am so glad that we found him!

Tim is an excellent teacher. He is great with my 9 year old daughter in her piano lessons. He is very patient, and quite passionate about music. He takes the time to answer my daughter's many questions, and has helped to further her passion for piano playing. She has been taking lessons with him for almost a year now, and has enjoyed and benefited from every minute. I couldn't ask for a better piano teacher!

This teacher let me 9 year old struggle through piano pieces he hadn't played in month during his first lesson, although I made sure to let him know that my son hadn't played in over half a year. The teacher sat there in silence as my child struggled through the pieces. He didn't give any positive or constructive feedback as my child sat there in silence struggling. He took a phone call during our 30 minute lesson and wrote comments in his notebook, visible to my child such as "rusty" "needs improvement". I was tempted to rescue my son after 15 minutes, but hoped that some instruction would soon take place, it didn't. Not suitable for young children in my opinion. Definitely will not return.

I did well on the SAT. Preparation for these tests requires not only knowledge of the subject matter but test-taking strategies such as time management.

I chose Paul because of other reviews. We set a plan before I purchased sessions.

I had to ask for him to deliver notes a few times before our session. He asked to reschedule the first session. I accepted.

The session went well as Paul is knowledgeable about the material. He again agreed to give me notes as we initially agreed. The notes did not come in and I followed up with him. He promised them again and did not deliver.

I still scheduled another session with him. He rescheduled and I agreed. Again, I asked him for the notes and he did not deliver. It came time for the 2nd session and I hear nothing from him. At this point I returned all my sessions.

I would not recommend Paul because of his reliability and lack of follow through. The only reason I gave him two stars instead of three was because he was knowledgeable for the first session we had.

WOW! We are so very impressed with Paul. As an educator myself, I had high expectations for my daughter's math tutor. He has far exceeded my expectations. He is knowledgeable, goes above and beyond to help her succeed, and knows how to reach her. Within a few sessions her grade went up multiple letter grades. Choose Paul, you'll be happy with your decision.

Need better scores? Or just help with homework? Contact me!

To help you reach your personal academic goals, (whether it be pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trig, pre-Calculus or Calculus, SAT, and/or the ACT test preparation, or may be GRE preparation for an older audience) I will find your weak topics and help you understand it fully. For that, I analyze your previous work and we discuss what you did and why. I will help you to see the logic in the solution and understand the relationship between concepts. Between sessions, I will happily answer short questions off the clock by email, or Skype.

For the SAT/ACT test takers my plan is usually for a student to take the practice test at home or school, then grade it and come back to me with the results. We will diagnose your problems (as in “didn’t have enough time”, “don’t know how to approach a problem like this”, “didn’t read the problem carefully”, “made a calculation error”, “didn’t know the definition” and so on) and work ...

We are very thankful to our instructor. She makes sure the subject is understood and not memorized. One could see that she has passion for the class and it looks like that passion is contagious.

I've been teaching SAT preparation for 10 years and my students have increased their SAT scores over 500 points from their initial scores.

I create a personalized daily syllabus that caters to each student's individual strengths and weakness, and check in with my students daily to make sure that they are completing their homework assignments and have no questions.

My program is rigorous and demanding, but leads to significantly higher scores very quickly. I do not give my students a chance to slack off or to stop doing their homework assignments because students are required to enter when they have completed their homework assignments, their scores, and their vocabulary words daily through a virtual tracking system that I have created.

I provide a book list including Collegeboard and Kaplan books, though can work with whatever books students already have. I incorporate technology to keep students engaged.

I can't wait to begin!

Leona is all I could have wanted out of a tutor. She was positive, patient, and up lifting. She really worked with me and reminded me to be confident in the skills I have learned. I highly recommend Leona. Even though we were online through Skype, she was just as helpful than if she were in person.
