About Greg

My name is Greg. I am a husband, and father to three amazing children. Ages 6, 14, and 15. I have been an educator for over six years and taught a variety of subjects including Physical Science 8th, US History 8th, Intensive Reading 6th-8th, TV Production 7th-8th, Reading 6th, ELA 6th-8th, Civics 7th, World History 6th, Intro to IT 9th, and Digital Design I 9th-12th. I have also taught a college level Microsoft Office class, college level business math, and History of media at FSW. I have a Masters Degree in Film/Communication and Bachelors in Economics. With a wide array of knowledge and the ability to learn new material quickly, I know I could be an inspirational choice as your tutor.

At my most recent school, I was able to successfully reach several of my more challenging students: increasing their overall scores, raising overall understanding of subject matter closer to grade level, and creating successful habits that should hopefully be carried on with them throughout their education. I even began tutoring my most difficult students (those in danger of failing) during my planning period. I saw all of those students complete their assignments and pass 4th quarter. I use several teaching strategies to help students perform better on tests and be effective writers of prompts.

When I first entered the teaching field I began as a 7th grade ELA teacher. I have since taught 6th through 8th grade English and even been a long term substitute for 9th grade ELA. I am a published writer with a firm grasp of the English language, various writing conventions, and superb editing skills.

As someone who loves history and politics, I found teaching history and civics as a perfect outlet for one of my passions. I had the pleasure of interning in Washington, DC. for a congressman from Florida back in the 1980's, which gives me a first hand experience of the political system. I will also help you gather an appreciation for the great history of America and the many influencing cultures that have impacted the World.

My tutoring rate is $40 for in-person lessons and will meet at your desired location up to 15 miles away. I have a flexible schedule, so I can usually meet at your convenience. I am certified as a Middle Grades 5-9 Social Studies Teacher and was previously Middle Grades Integrated Curriculum, meaning able to teach every subject. I am looking forward to becoming your tutor, teaching one on one and being able to bring about your quick success.

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.

Social Studies

I am Florida DOE certified Middle Grades 5-9 Social Studies Teacher. (FL DOE #1040180) Last year, I taught 6th Grade World History, 7th grade Civics, and 8th grade US History at Cape Coral Preparatory and Fitness Academy in Cape Coral, Florida. In 2009-2010 year, I taught US History at Lehigh Acres Middle School. Also, I had the pleasure of interning in Washington, DC. for a congressman from Florida back in the 1980's, which gives me a first hand experience of the political system.
