Course: Intro To Statistics 2510 Satisfactory Performance

Paul is a great tutor who is very helpful in different subjects. I met with him once a week for statistics, and he was able to help me out in another course. He is very reliable and I would definitely recommend Paul if you need help in a course

Joseph G - University of Colorado , June 2018

Course: Physics I (1110) Satisfactory Performance

Very knowledgeable and friendly- can get right into learning quickly.

Taylor G - CU Boulder , June 2018

Course: Phys 1110 Satisfactory Performance

SUPER helpful and knowledgeable about the subjects. Very flexible with scheduling and is patient with learning and mastering. I would highly recommend.

Alaina G - University of Colorado Boulder , January 2018

Course: Math 1212 Satisfactory Performance

Paul is straight to the point with each problem & task, regardless of difficulty or your experience, he will make sure you get it. In the several decades worth of struggles i've had with math (i'm an older student), i've never had someone as helpful as him. He doesn't waste time with ambiguous analogies or force you to guess for 5-10 minutes at a time what is going on with misleading questions, he is very blunt and straight to the point with what each problem is "doing" in the real world or with physical analogies. This is the first person i've interacted with in my life who has adequately and unambiguously explained to me what algebra actually "does" beyond letters and numbers, as is unfortunately taken for granted by most college and high school instructors.

Scott U - CU Boulder , December 2017

Course: Physics Satisfactory Performance

Paul is a great tutor, he knows what he is talking about and is very organized when it comes to scheduling

Jacqueline O - monarch , June 2017

Course: Classical Mechanics and Math Methods (PHYS 2210) Satisfactory Performance

Paul is a great guy that is always happy to help. He does a great job at sharing his thought process with you, and if there's something that's difficult, we struggle together to figure it out. This, to me, is far more valuable than simply having the answers thrown at you. He is honestly interested in the material and has fun breaking down the problems and finding different ways to solve them. He is also very flexible when it comes to schedule changes.
