About Gregory

Thirty years.

After being a professional writer for 30 years, I believe it's time to impart much knowledge about the art of the written word.

That's why it's time to assist others as a tutor.

I once taught a six-week class in "Journalistic Techniques in Writing" at a community college right out of school from the University of North Carolina.

I would use some of those same class principles in my tutoring sessions --- meaning breaking down sentence structure, honing word usage and building to a crescendo a la pyramid style.

I am a tireless worker with the insightful instinct of a visionary.

Call it basic instinct.

I am a veteran media industry member with a roll call of accomplishments and highlights through the years.
I have written news stories, crafted commentaries and columns, appeared on television talk shows and edited stories in fast-paced environments for most of those years.

In the 1980s, I produced highly read commentaries and columns on various sports topics.

In the 1990s, I appeared on several national television shows from BET to "Geraldo" to discuss a variety of topics from the sports world to socio-cultural issues.

During the decade of the 2000s, I edited sports stories as well as produced content for paginated pages.

For example, I produced the content for a one-year look-back after the death of pop singer Michael Jackson.

And I wrote an analysis previewing President Barack Obama's second term when he won re-election in 2012.

I have written articles on singers and entertainers, utilized experts such as scientists, political figures and historians and composed preview analyses on the annual NBA draft.

Furthermore, I also have a background in the biological and natural sciences from my college days.
With such an eclectic background, I would be an asset to you in this endeavor.

To be concise and succinct, that's the advantage of being a visionary with that instinctive quality.

Each one, teach one.
