Hi Students,

I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science from UC Davis and I earned my MBA in Finance at CSU Hayward (East Bay). While I was at UC Davis, I placed 2nd in the Undergraduate Mathematics Exam and represented UC Davis in both the Putnam International Mathematics Competition and in the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) Western Regional programming competition.

Hi Students,

I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science from UC Davis and I earned my MBA in Finance at CSU Hayward (East Bay). While I was at UC Davis, I placed 2nd in the Undergraduate Mathematics Exam and represented UC Davis in both the Putnam International Mathematics Competition and in the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) Western Regional programming competition.

While I love working as a consultant (more on that in a subsequent paragraph), I also really enjoy math and have competed in mathematics competitions from grade school through college (some are listed above). I have also home-schooled our two children for grades K – 8 and helped them with homework in all subjects at every level. One is now at UC Berkeley and the other is doing well in public high school – both of which I am still able to help. The subjects I best remember helping my own children with include Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, and Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Discrete Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and programming in Java and Scheme. I took many math classes in college before deciding I didn't want to be a math major. I can best help your student in the math and sciences and sometimes in the social studies.

I find math problems interesting and I am most interested in being able to help others see math in a similar light. While I strive to make math fun for all, I expect to at least make it understandable and manageable for you. Hopefully I can break it down, answer your questions, and explain it another way that works with your learning style and builds off of your current level of understanding regardless of where that is. My job is to solidify your foundation and increase your current grasp on the subject matter to help you meet and surpass your goals.

I did 2 years of public speaking in high school, including 1 year of Varsity level Oxford Style Debate. I qualified to compete at the state level in Original Prose and Poetry. My career allows me to speak publicly every so often, too.

Now that you’ve heard about how I want to help you, here is some background on my own career. I am a Senior Business Intelligence Consultant / Architect and have been working as a software / database / business intelligence consultant for about 20 years. Through this work I have consulted for well-known companies such as Microsoft, Hyperion, Oracle, Clorox, Wells Fargo, Visa, Bank of America and many others. I have also spoken many user conferences including the PASS Community Summits which are known for hosting “the world's largest, most-focused, and most-intensive conference for Microsoft SQL Server and BI professionals.”; North American Hyperion User conferences; TemTech User Conference; and Adage User Conference. I hold multiple certifications from Microsoft and Hyperion. I am the author of a BrainBench exam.

Lastly, I like taking tests and I believe I can help you get an upper hand on many standardized tests with different tricks and techniques when you just don't know which answer is correct.

If you have any questions on my experience or anything pertinent to tutoring in general, please send me an email and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

I hope to hear from you soon!

I earned A's in almost every computer science class I took. I have written graphic's programs that modeled FIGs, modified UNIX kernels, written compilers. Professionaly, I provided application architecture consulting services to Microsoft for about 1 year.

UNIX

I have a degree in Computer Science from UC Davis. We developed on the Unix BSD 3.9 and 4.3 versions. While at PG&E I administered a Sun Solaris machine which is a flavor of UNIX. Many of my clients used to run Unix and I would be tasked with configuring the environment for our benefit.

Great tutor

Greg has been helping me through statistics after I hit a mental burn out. He’s great at explaining things and helping me understand my book better. He’s even patient when I have to ask the same questions repeatedly. Highly recommended.

Joelle, 5 lessons with Greg

Great tutor,

Greg's really good at answering questions of how things function. I was really unprepared but Greg was really good at getting the learning on course. He's easy to talk with and improved the learning, by a lot, by answering small nuances that matter. Thanks!

Wayne, 1 lesson with Greg

Intelligent and understandable

Greg helped me with the math section of the SAT to prepare for the real SAT test. He knew how to solve every problem and explained all problems to make it easy for me. I would highly recommend him for SAT math help.

Katharina, 2 lessons with Greg

Great at explaining

Had a dual lesson with Greg and he made sure that my friend and I both understood the topic. If we didn’t understand he would explain in different ways until we both understood. No rush at all through the chapter we went over, so we went at our own pace.

Misa, 2 lessons with Greg

Great instructor

Greg is nice, understanding, capable, explains, and helped with hard questions. He drove to my home, was understanding to my needs for tutoring, even though I possibly could be his oldest student ever, he is mindful. Thanks, Wyzant, I really am happy with my tutor. Darla

Goes at your pace

I'm getting help for calc and Greg helps me feel reassured that I know what to do and always checks to make sure I'm not stuck.

Strategic Tutor

Greg helped me with dissecting problems, and assisted me with creating good test taking habits. He also found my area of weakness within two practice problems. Thanks a lot Greg! See you again.

Kelly, 2 lessons with Greg

Greg is helping my grandson, Miles, with Pre Calculus

Miles will continue lessons with Greg for as long as needed as he has been so happy to have had the help so far. Aside from pre calculus, Greg, will be able to help him with just about any other subject he would have trouble with. I feel so grateful for his help.
