Paul Fisher

Ann Arbor, MI


  • Bowling Green State University
  • Wayne State University (Ph.D.)

Paul Fisher holds a Ph.D. in economics from Wayne State University as well as 99th-percentile GMAT and LSAT scores. During the day, he works at Henry Ford College.

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 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. In addition to teaching economics and GMAT, 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.

Paul lives in the Detroit/Ann Arbor area with his wife and their five boys. He enjoys simple television and complicated beer. He still does occasional janitorial work, but not professionally, and only at home.
