About Gregory

I am a certified history teacher in the States of Connecticut and New York. I work as a paraprofessional in Fairfield County, CT, helping to education students with diverse needs. I got into tutoring to expand my knowledge and skills working one on with students. If you are looking for your child to get an extra boost in their subject in school, I am happy to help out.

My Education: I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Studies Education and my Certification from Manhattanville College. Currently, I am working on gaining my Masters of Arts in Teaching at Fairfield University. Both schools are highly accredited liberal arts colleges in the Northeast, well known for academic excellence.

My Occupation: As a teacher, I have worked with students of all abilities in a variety of classroom settings. As a paraprofessional, I make sure that the students I teach are meeting their goals on a daily basis. Consistency is key in education, and I make sure that I am following through with their education plans so that they can gain mastery over the knowledge and skills in class. This job affords me the ability to see how different teacher structure their classrooms and how they pay attention to the individual needs of the students in their care.

My Skills as a Tutor: I have had many satisfied and repeat customers. I work with students from middle school to college. Each of my sessions are tailor made to each individual student's learning styles and preferences. My greatest strength is helping students better understanding classroom content. I have received excellent feedback from the parents of my students, who have thanked me for helping their children with the content. My specialty subject is History, particularly AP History courses. I worked with a young man who wanted to pass the Ap World History exam. Over the next several months, I created a study plan by which, he could ask me questions on the content he found difficult, I would explain them, using worksheets or videos to illustrate them further, and we would end with a multiple choice short quiz to ensure mastery. When he received his scores for the exam, he got a 5.

I would love to help your son or daughter not only succeed in their class but prepare them for a greater future. I truly believe that education will change the world.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

American History

I received my BA in History at Manhattanville College in 2011. In the years since graduating, I continue to study and improve my knowledge of history.

Art History

When I graduated from college, I received a minor in art history. I have a particular love of this subject and I was fortunate enough to have a great aptitude for the subject. For three years, I spent my spring break trips in Italy, Venice, Rome and Tuscany respectively. The area of art history that I am very proficient in is the art of the Early and High Renaissance. I believe that while a student can learn about art from a textbook or the internet, they must attend a museum to see the real impact of art to have a full and meaningful experience.

Classics

My interest in the Greek and Roman Classics goes all the way back to 6th Grade History when I first studied Ancient Greece. Since then, I have read widely in Greek philosophy (Socrates, Plato, Aristotle) and Roman History (Livy, Tacitus). One of my great joys in teaching the classics has been introducing children to the epic poetry of Homer and Virgil. I have recently started teaching this subject in school.

English

I'm currently working on gaining a BA in English in the NY and CT areas. I have worked in several school districts as an English substitute. I am a very well read individual and I keep on top of what is currently being taught in districts around the area where I live. I particularly enjoy connecting what a student is reading in class with situations in their own life and things taking place in the world around them to help them have a better understanding of the novel.

European History

I have taken more classes on this period of Continental history than any other. When I graduated from Manhattanville in 2011, I received the Gerard Thormann Award for Excellence in European History for my successful study of European history and my dissertation on the Henrican Reformation of England.

Geography

I have a great understanding of geography reaching all the way back to my years in middle school. Geography is fundamental to the understanding of History and Social Studies in school. But It also important in other aspects of life as well, such as business and science. I would like to make sure that my student better understand how we have made an impact on our world.

Government & Politics

My Social Studies degree required me to take several courses on Political Science in order to be more well rounded as a teacher. I have a very good understanding of how our government works and I am widely read in political philosophy.

Literature

I have a great love of literature and reading. The more I read, the more I know and wish to share with others. I want the people that I tutor to come away from my sessions with a greater love and appreciation of learning.

Reading

I am a highly proficient reader and enjoy sharing my passion with students and other teachers.

I believe that all children want to read. I give them the tools that great readers use when going through a book, whether it is fiction or nonfiction. I have helped a wide range of readers, from college level to special needs.

Religion

Since taking a course in college, I have begun to study the religions of the World. I have particular interest in the Judeo-Christian-Islamic religions of the West, and I am studying the Eastern religions of India and China in more depth. I feel that when one is studying history, one needs to have a better understanding of the world's religions. It would be my pleasure to introduce to your children the fascinating world of religion.

Social Studies

I am a certified NY and CT social studies teacher. I received my Bachelor's in Social Studies Education in 2011 from Manhattanville College.

World History

I have a Bachelor of Arts in History and I am well versed in the subject of World History. My particular area of concentration is European and Western History.

Writing

Writing is one of my strongest subjects in school and in college.

The key to great writing is planning. I can assist you in created a very structured way to organize your ideas into paper and give you tools to revise your work to make it a strong and accessible piece to read.

In my free time, I spend it writing book reviews and composing my own novels.

Whether you need help in writing a book report, historical research paper, or college essay, I can make your writing stand out.
