I am a certified teacher who now works exclusively as a private tutor. I have taught Biology, Chemistry, and Physics (including Honors and A.P. classes). I have been working professionally as a teacher and tutor for over ten years.
In the past year I have tutored students from the following schools and I am familiar with these schools' standards and curricula (partial list):
Harvard-Westlake, Brentwood, Notre Dame, Crespi, Wildwood, Palisades Charter H.S., Windward, Marlborough, Milken Community H.S., New Roads H.S., Campbell Hall, Sierra Canyon, Beverly Hills H.S., Arcadia H.S., Santa Monica H.S., South Bay private school, Saint Paul the Apostle School, Mira Costa H.S., USC (Bio. & Chem.), and Santa Monica College (Bio. & Chem.).
I’ve worked with a variety of students of all ages, learning abilities, and backgrounds. I am patient and understanding, especially with struggling students. Former students describe me as knowledgeable, understandable, and funny. I believe a sense of humor is a valuable tool when tackling tough subject areas.
I have helped students prepare for many standardized tests including the ISEE, HSPT, ACT, PSAT, SAT (math, reading, & writing), SAT Subject Tests (Bio E/M & Chem), as well as AP Tests (Biology, Chemistry, and Environmental Science-APES), and the GED.
Excellent references and resume available.
“Greg is a gifted teacher with an exceptional ability to connect with people and particularly, kids. He has that unusual combination of absolute fluency with the subject matter, ability to customize the teaching approach to the individual student's needs, and overlaying it all, on a human level he is a great support and ally for his students. Other parents I have spoken with whose kids have worked with Greg have had an equally positive experience. I feel very fortunate to have found him.”
