Hi. My name is Greg Z. I live in Garwood with my wife and two children, and I can tutor in my home or will to travel to your location as needed. I enjoy helping children of all ages, as well as adults, learn and become proficient in their subjects.
You will get the benefit of the knowledge and skills of a professional proofreader and copy editor and published writer when you hire me to tutor your child or yourself in English including reading, writing, spelling, grammar and vocabulary.
You will get the benefit of a former Disney caricature artist trained in Animation at NYU, if you hire me as your tutor in Drawing and Art.
Some of the other subjects in which I am certified to tutor include American History, Elementary Science, Philosophy, and Economics.
I have years of experience proofreading, and training proofreaders, at Stroock, a large firm based in Manhattan.
Besides tutoring, I currently work as a medical copy editor, as well as being the weekend legal proofreader at the New York office of one of the UK's "Magic Circle" law firms, with global offices, Allen & Overy.
As a parent of twins whom I enjoy tutoring privately and who are excelling in fourth grade as I write this, I have lots of experience teaching and interacting with children (including my kids and their friends).
Over the years I have taught many individuals skills in art, writing and proofreading. I enjoy teaching on a one-to-one basis, as it is the most effective method. I can tailor my tutoring directly to the student's needs.
As a tutor, I may use proven texts I select, as well as any materials provided by you, and my own knowledge and experience. I will be sensitive to any areas that need extra attention and I adjust to be most helpful to the student. I can help make subjects that children may initially find boring into exciting and interesting subjects they are motivated to learn, by relating the topics to their lives and goals that interest them.
As to my Art background, I was the youngest professional cartoonist in America when I was age ten and eleven and created the Kooky Sam comic strip published in the Asbury Park Press. As an adult, I have been a professional caricature artist, drawing cartoon portraits of guests at Walt Disney World's Downtown Disney, and also at Keansburg Amusement Park and at private parties.
Please contact me to discuss your needs. I am looking forward to working with you.
