I am a writer, tutor, and online educator based in New York City. Since graduating from Princeton in 2001 with a major in Music, I have tutored mostly private high school students in essay writing, literature, math (Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus, and Calculus), physics, history (US and World), and of course the SAT, ACT, and other Subject Tests. I also host an educational YouTube channel—https://www.youtube.com/user/PaulCharlesGriffin—with free content ranging from philosophy lectures to Calculus tutorials to poetry analysis.
As a writer, I have published fiction and literary criticism in many fine journals and magazines, including Tin House, Virginia Quarterly Review, The Brooklyn Rail, NY Press, The Common Review, Shambhala Publications, Big Other, Publisher's Weekly, and more. Over the past decade, I have also performed in bands as a piano player and singer across Brooklyn and Manhattan.
Lastly, I am a devoted meditator and aim not only to teach meditation as I grow older but also to bring a quality of mindfulness and introspection into everything I do.
I am excited about the exploding possibilities for online education, and recently I am committing much of my time and resources to exploring this brave new world.
I live and work in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, with my wife Erin, a painter, and my two young children, Iris and Lydia.
