About Greg

I am currently a 5th and 6th grade teacher in the western Chicago suburbs.

This is my 29th year of teaching! I've taught all grades from 3rd through 8th. While working as an elementary school teacher I teach all subjects, and as a middle school teacher my focus is Language Arts and Social Studies/History.
I consider teaching elementary level Math a particular strength.

As a professional educator since 1985 I hold myself to the highest of standards both in my own classroom and as a private tutor.

I have done individualized tutoring for many students over the years. My goal is always to help students get beyond areas where they struggle and find things particularly difficult. I try to relieve some of the frantic stress that sometimes goes with the pressure of difficult school work. I find that a sense of humor and easy interaction go a long way in creating student success. Hard work and learning don't have to be painful.

I am flexible with time and location of lessons. It's pretty easy to work things out in this regard.

I do ask for 12-24 hours notice for canceled sessions.

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.
