Hello! I received my BA from Duke University, Double Major: History and Political Science, a MA in Government from Johns Hopkins University and MA in Education from the University of San Diego. As an experienced teacher and tutor I greatly enjoy helping students improve their writing, prepare for exams, build college essays, study for standardized tests, and develop sharp English skills. Those I tutor consistently provide feedback citing noticeable improvement. I tutor Middle School, High School and University students.

With regard to writing, my methods include assisting students in generating and polishing themes, sharpening arguments, and writing with a skill and command teachers and test scorers will find impressive. I work with students on improving their ability to develop a well-defined thesis with clarity, appropriate tone, grammar and word choice.

I have years of academic coaching experience helping students study for tests and teaching students strategies and tricks for studying on their own. I enjoy helping students learn to complete assignments more effectively and in less time.

I am considered an energetic tutor and teacher who wants to make work enjoyable. I pride myself in helping students make noticeable improvements with sustained growth over the long term.

Please feel free to contact me at any time of the day. I respond quickly and have fairly flexible hours.

As a teacher I have significant experience teaching public as a core element of my courses. As coach of a high school Mock Trial team I am constantly working with students on important strategies to improve their public speaking for competitions. Public speaking is vital for most school subjects and almost any career. The strategies I implement for students based on their strengths and weaknesses are very helpful for immediate and long term improvement.

Knowledgeable and Helpful

Great session. Greg had helped me elaborate on more ideas for my essay. Greg was very clear on instructions. I look forward to working with him on my college essays.

The Best Tutor in the World

Today I had the most amazing tutoring session. Mr. Greg showed me how to write a structured essay using new SAT level vocabulary. We discussed major themes in the Declaration of Independence ratified in 1776 and put it into writing. I have worked with Mr. Greg before and each time I learned something new. I cannot believe how much I have improved, and my writing and knowledge of history has grown so much. I am very grateful for Mr. Greg’s help; I cannot be more satisfied.

Exceptional tutor.

Greg has tutored my son Matthew many times over the last few years in writing, test taking and reading comprehension including this most recent session through Wyzant. His English teacher complimented him on his improved writing. They have covered historical figures, current events and different subjects from schools. I highly recommend him.
