Paul discovered his passion and talent for teaching as far back as his junior year in high school when he spontaneously decided to tutor his peers for their AP exams. He thoroughly enjoyed the experience and all his friends did quite well. After high school, he enrolled at Yale and continued to develop his teaching abilities as a volunteer tutor for the New Haven community and as a paid tutor for northern NJ students. During his college summers, he devoted himself to full-time tutoring. After college, he founded his own after-school learning center in California where he developed semester-long academic programs. Having learned valuable lessons from his first entrepreneurial effort, he then founded and taught at Peak Learning Center in northern New Jersey. Peak became a highly successful after-school academy for students who sought assistance in school subjects, standardized tests, college applications, and life coaching. After nearly a decade of serving as the President of Peak, he stepped down from that role in order to focus more of his time and energy to teaching students. He currently teaches classes and individuals at Peak.

Paul is now seeking and serving students who want the best teaching and the best results. He has the passion and proficiency to propel students toward their purpose. 

He lives in northern New Jersey. His better half is Jeanette, and he has three beautiful children.
