About Gregg

I discovered a talent for teaching during my time at Cal Poly Pomona as an engineering major. While working towards my graduation as valedictorian and summa cum laude, I found many of my classmates struggling with their assignments. I soon developed a reputation for my ability to walk them through their difficulties.

During this time I began tutoring math, from high-school through adult ages. I have since helped many students from diverse backgrounds and educational needs achieve success in their studies. My tutoring style is friendly, yet directed. I do my best to make our time working together count. And I am extremely good at identifying problem areas and working with students to strengthen them. I have a unique gift for clearly explaining concepts and methods, and outlining step-by-step approaches to problems that greatly aid student understanding. If math is giving you any problems, I am here to help.

I have tutored several students in algebra, with a noticeable improvement in their class performance. As algebra is foundational to all the math I studied, I have a very strong grasp of the subject.

I also work with my students to develop effective study strategies, especially crucial for good performance in calculus.
