Paul FisherAnn Arbor, MI
Wayne State University
Paul Fisher holds a PhD in economics from Wayne State University as well as 99th percentile GMAT and LSAT scores. He is currently the Associate Dean of Business and Computer Technology at Henry Ford College in Dearborn, MI.
The list of Paul’s undergraduate majors at Bowling Green State University included math, graphic design, visual communication technology, and eventually economics. He graduated just as the 2001 recession was starting and took two part-time jobs: one as a janitor and one as a test prep instructor. When he couldn’t decide between using his great GMAT score for b-school and using his great LSAT score for law school, he cleverly decided to use his good-but-not-great GRE score (Paul did not like the idea of studying vocab) to go to grad school to study health care economics.
So Paul unofficially retired from professional janitorial work, but continued teaching throughout grad school and beyond. He now oversees Henry Ford College’s business, CIS, paralegal, and culinary arts programs. He has also proofread, reviewed, and created supplements for a number of very famous econ textbooks.
All told, Paul has over ten years of test prep experience, over ten years of college teaching experience, and tons of curriculum and textbook development experience. He is passionate about education, and he loves working hard with students, helping them meet their goals. He enjoys the administrative work he does now, but he misses the classroom. This is one of the reasons he is thrilled to be working with Manhattan Prep.
Paul lives in Dearborn with his wife and their four boys. He enjoys simple television and complicated beer, and he performs “classroom observations” of his culinary arts faculty whenever possible. He still does occasional janitorial work, but not professionally, and only at home.
“Paul really, really, knows how to tackle the problems. He is enthusiastic, well prepared, and thoroughly "in" to the subject matter.”
“He was very effective in breaking down complex material into fundamental elements, making learning, understanding, and applying the material a lot more easy, efficient, and effective.”
“He did an excellent job helping us stay motivated.”
