Paul

My name is Paul, and I am currently pursuing my secondary education teaching license. My academic background is in history. I received my Bachelor's at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, and my Master's at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. Since graduation, I have worked for Cengage Learning and have substituted at both private and public schools in the Chicago area.

I believe strongly in independent learning and in fostering a student's passion for knowledge. Together, we will formulate a plan that best fits the student's needs and interests. I use guided questioning to find the strategies that best suit the student's abilities. My ultimate goal, aside from helping the student get a good grade or test score, is to help them become an independent learner, with a number of tools and strategies at their disposal.

In addition to tutoring, I enjoy cooking and traveling. I am also a part-time comic book writer, with an ever-increasing number of titles available.
