Sr. Paus is a master of Spanish, and above proficient in both English and Russian. Easily one of the greatest teachers I have ever had. He entertains playful banter in the class, keeps us interested with a largely conversation-based approach to teaching, and makes us laugh with his playfully-morbid humor. He treats his students like adults although he (facetiously) calls us "Animales". A fantastic conversational partner and is most-evidently an intellectual in his own right. He is fantastic.
Charles Paus is a very good teacher. He focuses on preparing students for AP testing in Spanish. His main priority is to have all of his students capable of fluently communicating with native speakers. The classroom environment he maintains is structured yet encouraging.
He's a fantastic teacher- one that embodies the high-quality you'd expect from one of the nation's top schools.
Sr Paus is tough but you learn. I learned all my spanish from him, got a 5 on AP a& looking into teaching Span. I tutor on the side using many of his techniques and students learn fast!
He is probably the best teacher you will ever have. He is understanding and makes sure that you know what you need to know. He is funny and loves to joke around with his students.
Senor Paus is the best spanish teacher ever. Seriously, he's so nice and really wants his students to learn and do well. Definitely prepared me for the AP test.
Not a very nice guy, ridicules his students, he makes you do more hw in his class than any other cass at CAMS but you do learn Spanish well.
si quieres ensenar espanol, senor paus es el mejor. i'm done w/ my college spanish credits and he was definitely my best spanish teacher. true understanding.
