About Gregory

Hello! I'm Greg G and I received my Bachelor's degree in Physics from Stony Brook University in 2013 and my Master's degree from Binghamton University in 2015. I also am a member of the Sigma Pi Sigma Physics Honor's society. I I have been tutoring since my high school days (mainly helping out my friends), but I have also spent much time helping out other students in need.

Most of my tutoring experience is focused on math, physics, and to a smaller degree, astronomy. My experience with math and physics was boosted by my time as a physics lab assistant where I needed to teach a class of 20+ students the concepts, even going so far as helping out my friends who were also lab assistants.

It's easy for a tutor to end up in a pitfall. It's easy for the tutor, and easy for the student to simply know "the steps" to solve a problem, but not WHY those steps work. This is what I aim to teach the student; why something is meant to be solved a certain way. The best part of tutoring is having the student reach that "a-ha!" moment when he or she finally grasps the concept and realizes how simple it was all along. There is a difference between knowing math, and understanding math.

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.

Precalculus

I have my M.S. and B.S. in physics and belong to the SPS honor society. I have tutored children and adults of all ages in math and physics and I have consistently been highly rated, you can check my feedback here on wyzant for further proof of that.

SQL

I am self-taught in SQL. I currently work as a data analyst and use SQL on a daily basis to create various queries to assess company performance and assess customer data.
