About Greg


Bio

I've worked in the analytical software business for a number of years, and have trained software engineers for Fortune 500 companies worldwide. I have extensive practical experience with using math and science for software applications. I have run a software consulting business for over 15 years. I have taught computer science courses for CU/Boulder and Red Rocks Community College.

I've worked in the analytical software business for a number of years, and have trained software engineers for Fortune 500 companies worldwide. I have extensive practical experience with using math and science for software applications. I have run a software consulting business for over 15 years. I have taught computer science courses for CU/Boulder and Red Rocks Community College.

I have B.S. degrees in computer science and physics from Colorado State University.

So...why be a tutor? I started tutoring my kids in math & science when they were in middle school because it looked like they would begin to lose ground otherwise. I discovered I liked it, and would up tutoring them and their friends later on.

My goal is to work myself out of a job - to make it possible for you to say "Wow. I get it. I don't need your help any more." Note that this means I won't do your work for you. Instead, I'll work diligently with you to make you more successful and more confident in your newly acquired skills.

Piano

You might be wondering why a computer jock would be interested in tutoring on the piano. I'm a professional computer nerd and a musician by avocation. Music is a nice release for me, and it turns out that there is a lot of overlap between scientists and musicians. I've been playing the piano since I was a little kid, and was originally a piano performance major in college. I'm a former church accompanist and organist. I've taught piano lessons to kids and adults.

Great Tutor

Greg helped me with an assignment that I was struggling with after taking a long summer break following my into to C++ class. He helped me refresh my memory about everything that I had forgotten over the summer and taught me few new things as well. I have already booked another lesson.

Excellent teacher!

Greg was a lifesaver! I've been taking a class in Java online and getting very little help from the instructor so I've been teaching myself....poorly. Greg was able to take the pieces I had a loose grip on and give them meaning. He gave me the framework I was missing to be able to build programs on my own. One lesson with him already has me feeling more confident about my skills. He was patient and his explanations were clear. He was supportive and encouraging, validating my work/effort and ensuring I actually "got it". (some techies spend too much time showing off and talking above you - not Greg!) I look forward to continued sessions with him and I would highly recommend him to anyone struggling with programming.

Very patient and honest

Greg was very patient as I am new to development. He gave very honest and helpful feedback with next steps. We setup a plan for success in my endeavors. I believe he will lead me on a path to success.

Awsome Tutor

Had a pretty advanced subject to just jump into. Greg came to the rescue and helped me out big time.

Jacob, 3 lessons with Greg

Awesome tutor!

Very patient for someone struggling with c++. Extremely knowledgeable and a huge help! I can't wait to book more sessions with him!

Jennifer, 2 lessons with Greg

Great first session

I just had my first session with Greg. He immediately assessed my level of experience with Java and was quickly able to help me understand some of the missing pieces in my code for my assignment. Greg is easy to talk to and clearly very knowledgeable in the field of Software Engineering.

Adam, 2 lessons with Greg

Great job! He opened up a whole world of networking

My son is very excited by the new world of networking that Greg introduced him to. He plans to use it with a game he developed so many of his friends can play at the same time. Thanks Greg!

Great tutor, very attentive and seems to know his stuff in C++

Greg helped me by walking me through my assignment and was very attentive. He also helped me by coming up with alternatives when it came to writing code and thinking outside the box. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needed help in C++ programming.

Chris, 1 lesson with Greg

Knowledgeable and Reliable

Greg has been so reliable and helpful to my son. He has helped my son understand complex coding that he needs to use in his AP Computer Science class and it has given him the extra boost he needs to do well on his projects.

Great Tutor, very fast response time

Greg was a very patient and thorough tutor. He taught me skills that I believe my teacher didn't make obvious for me. I have a better understanding of inequalities and slopes. We very briefly worked on negative exponents. I was satisfied with his methods of teaching. Greg was very flexible with date, times, and meeting locations. He had a very fast response time to my emails and he was very easy to talk to over the phone and in person. Greg had classical music playing during the tutoring session which to me was a very conducive learning environment. There was a couple distractions that occurred during our session but nothing that ruined my overall experience. My first Wyzant tutor was Greg and because of the positive experience I received, I have a favorable outlook on Wyzant's tutoring service and I'd recommend both Wyzant and Greg to my friends and/or family.
