Great great teacher. Not only is he a super nice guy, but he teaches incredibly well. For the first time in my life I actually understood the math that was being taught, and this was pre-calc. I had him two years ago but figured I would write him a review because he truly deserves one.

Mr Paulson helped me out a lot last year. I really struggled in Honors Algebra 2 and he was always really patient and nice. I probably would have dropped to regular but with his help I did great! Couldn't say enough good things about him. Plus he is very funny!

My daughter consistently struggled in math and we were hesitant about having her take Precalculus. Mr. Paulson has been very helpful and completely changed my daughter's attitude. She now loves math and has been doing exceedingly well. Wish she could have had more teachers like him earlier in her career as a student. His notes on edline have been a godsend!
