Hello, my name is Paul. I am excited to have an opportunity to bring my skills to the Varsity Tutors team. I have nearly twenty years of experience in education, much of which has been one-on-one sessions. Through work with a private learning company, a private high school for learning differences, and my own referral business, I have tailored my skills and developed learning plans to meet the needs of dozens of students. My foundation is in remedial reading skills and pre-HS mathematics, but I also have a passion for social studies and geography, and a degree in biology, and have worked with students of all ages.
My daughter is home-schooled, but I have a good deal of flexibility in my schedule, especially in the summer. I hope to hear from anyone that may need extra help in subject areas or has a need to close significant gaps in reading skills.

What is your teaching philosophy?

I have extensive experience using the Socratic method of teaching. This allows for guided questioning that facilitates self discovery from the student. I also believe it is important to use a multi-sensory approach tailored to the student's strengths.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I would most likely gain a rapport by open discussions around our respective expectations and styles. We could then gain a comfortable entry point into the material and set a framework for our upcoming sessions.
