Paul Turtola , Tutor.
I have a lot of experience helping students with their study of English (language arts), AP Language and Literature, Drama, Journalism, Philosophy, AP World and US History. I also have been successful helping with study skills, college test prep(SAT), and time management.
I have experience teaching students with special needs and learning disabilities as well. I have been a state-certified English teacher for 30 years and have an MS in English with Education from Southern CT State University and a BFA in Drama from Hofstra University.
Helping people read, write and think critically is my life’s work and I enjoy it very much.
