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 10 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.
Please contact me to schedule an appointment, online or in-person.
I am so excited to see the transformation of a student from lacking understanding to having confidence in a subject. I want my life to impact others through learning and mastery.
