Paul W.


Paul attended Yale, where he majored in History and Russian and East European Studies and graduated with honors. His thesis and work relating to the revolution in Ukraine was selected to be presented at a policy conference. After Yale, he moved to Samara, Russia for one year as the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship. Returning to America, Paul then worked at a Washington, D.C. think tank focusing on U.S., Russia, China affairs. He then received a Schwarzman Fellowship and moved to Beijing, China where he completed a Master’s in Global Affairs and a concentration in International Business and Economics. Paul is now back in Washington, D.C. working for the federal government as the recipient of yet another fellowship, this time the Presidential Management Fellowship.

Paul has worked as a tutor and writing advisor for several years. He has experience tutoring students from middle school through college from all over the world. He has worked with students to craft college, MD, MBA, and scholarship application essays. His core areas include test preparation for the GRE and the SAT as well as History, Math, English, and Russian. As a result of his SAT scores, Paul was named a U.S. Presidential Scholar as the sole male representative from Washington, D.C.

Outside of his work, Paul is an avid soccer player, and was actually a member of a semi-pro team while living in Beijing. His remaining spare time is consumed by hikes with Jackson, his Golden Retriever.

    "I am so glad I came across Cambridge Coaching for my GRE preparation last spring! Paul is not only an expert in every section of this exam, but he is also an incredible teacher! He preps and tailors each session to the specific needs of the individual. He thoroughly and efficiently works through the necessary content in whatever time is available before the test date! Despite the barrier of telecommunication, he quickly establishes a great rapport and therefore a comfortable space to make mistakes and learn! It is obvious that Paul is dedicated to the success of his clients and is more than qualified to help them reach their academic goals. I am proud to say that a year later, I will be attending my #1 graduate program of choice! Paul played a critical role in this big process and I am honored to have had the opportunity to work with him! I am pleased to give him my highest review and recommendation!"
