Bio

Hi, I'm Greg.

I have been teaching writing and critical thinking skills to college and college-bound students since 1997. I have a BA in philosophy from Reed College and a PhD in philosophy from UC, San Diego. I am a philosophy instructor at El Camino College and Rio Hondo College, and I have taught at four different campuses in the Los Angeles Community College District.

Hi, I'm Greg.

I have been teaching writing and critical thinking skills to college and college-bound students since 1997. I have a BA in philosophy from Reed College and a PhD in philosophy from UC, San Diego. I am a philosophy instructor at El Camino College and Rio Hondo College, and I have taught at four different campuses in the Los Angeles Community College District. Previously I spent four years teaching philosophy at UC, San Diego and three years there teaching in the Humanities Writing Program. I have worked as a freelance tutor on and off over the last ten years. I am a published academic author and a fiction writer.

My view is that clear and concise writing is the most important skill of the successful college student and that it is crucial for effective communication in business. I am experienced teaching recursive writing in a variety of subjects and genres and in helping students prepare for tests such as the SAT, ACT, GRE, LSAT, SSAT/ISEE, and TOEFL. I have taught students of all ages, from a variety of backgrounds, and with various learning styles and levels of academic preparation. I am experienced in developing, implementing, and assessing IEPs.

I am skilled at making abstract material concrete and at motivating students to engage with material they may previously have found challenging. I am engaging, funny, and nurturing, as well as diligent, honest, and punctual. I do not waste your time or money.

Let me help you or your child to write and think for success!

A very good and interesting tutor

Greg is a very good tutor, fully adapted to my needs! We spoke for an hour about my book and different philosophy topics. I will certainly take other lessons with him in the future. A real pleasure!

STEPHANE, 1 lesson with Greg

Good Progress!

Greg helped our student complete her history assignment, and got her reading a new chapter in her assigned English text. It was a productive lesson!

Sanjoy, 97 lessons with Greg

Knowledgeable, Experienced and Compassionate Professor

I have been struggling with my writting because English is not my native tongue. Since i started getting help from Professor Greg i have made great progress. Not only he is very good at what he does (helping people who need to gain sufficient advanced writing skills), he also is more flexible in terms of his time than any other tutor that i have ever worked with. In short, i am very grateful for everything he has done for me.

Calmly works with his student establishing rapport and building confidence with established writing techniques. Online tutoring works well for us after the first in person session.

Knowleadgeble and a patient tutor

Greg helped me a lot to make sure everything is taken care of with my class. He helped me to get the best grade I wish for. He is the most knowledgeable tutor in Philosophy and the best. There is no one who will be able to help you in philosophy as much as Greg. If you need help in Philosophy, please try Greg as your first option, you will feel relaxed and very comfortable.
