Welcome to Paradigm Tutoring!

In 2002, I began tutoring high school students for their college entrance exams and quickly discovered how much I loved helping students at this pivotal time in their lives. I also observed that many of the large tutoring companies had a corporate and impersonal feel, which was the exact opposite of the way I taught. Nurturing my passion for teaching, I founded Paradigm Tutoring with one mission: to provide one-on-one, highly personalized tutoring to help each student reach his or her true potential. 

At Paradigm, we recognize that every student starts at a different place, learns in a different manner and possesses unique goals and dreams.  Whether you are a straight-A student preparing for the SATs or just need some extra help in a particular subject area, a Paradigm tutor will work with you to design a curriculum that fits your individual needs, schedule and goals.      

We welcome students of all ages.  However, we specialize in tutoring high school students in specific academic subjects and standardized test preparation using proven techniques and strategies.  With patience, commitment and enthusiasm, Paradigm tutors expertly guide students toward success. 

Thank you for visiting this site. Please contact me directly at ParadigmTutoring@gmail.com for more information. I look forward to speaking with you soon!
