About this tutor

Hello! I'm Paul, and I am passionate about your success in school, and learning as a way of life.

I have tutored university, college, and high school students for 20 years with great success.

I served 8 years as a Community College Professor in Mathematics, Physics, and Meteorology. At The University of Colorado, I fulfilled the role of Teaching Assistant for physics, Energy & the Environment, Atmospheric Science, and Atmospheric Science Laboratory. I have also tutored collegiate student athletes.

I can help you any math from basic math, algebra, trigonometry, calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, or even business math or applied math. I have taught and tutored students in numerous courses from multiple textbooks, instructors, and software platforms. I can help students know how to approach a math problem.

I can assist you with any high school or college level physics course! AP Physics, conceptual, algebra-based, and calculus-based all apply. I have assisted many students to understand science concepts, calculations, display of data, computer programming, scientific writing, and scientific reports.

I can help you in Statistics, no matter what level you are taking.

I am highly experienced and skilled at anything Meteorology, Atmospheric Science, Weather, Climate Change, etc.

I am proficient at MATLAB and can help you with this computing language. I have experience with Python. I understand how to show students how they can find answers to their programming needs.

  • Anna Lipshaw

    Paul is incredibly patient and caring. He communicates well and makes math easy to learn. We feel privileged to have Paul on our team.

  • Charlotte Swenson

    Paul was a great physics tutor and was great at helping me understand difficult concepts. Our sessions were engaging, hands-on, and beneficial to my learning. It was great to go over homework and other assignments one-on-one. With Paul’s help I was able to go from getting a 50% on my first physics quiz to getting a 99% on the final and enjoying the subject more than I ever expected. I would highly recommend him as a tutor

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I engage with a new student for a relationship. I inquire regarding their expectations, concerns, fears, and hopes for tutoring. I then explain my tutoring philosophy. Then, I ask for a diagnosis of how well they are performing the course material subject, and how I can help them best in the first session.
