About Gregory

I am a certified teacher in Illinois with 9 years of experience teaching language arts (reading/writing), history/social studies (including AP level courses) and computer literacy. I have a BA degree in history and secondary education, and a masters degree in computer applications. I have worked extensively with students of all ages, including kids in grades 6-12, as well as college students and adult learners through my local community college.

If you need assistance with reading comprehension, writing, history, geography, or computers, I would love to help you. I also have extensive experience preparing students for exams, including the ACT, AP history exams, and teacher preparation exams (like the basic skills test). Additionally, I have experience teaching AP World History, AP European History, and AP United States History, as well as college level history coursework. Finally, I can also tutor students in specific computer programs (like Microsoft Word) if those skills are needed for your school or workplace.

Since I've been doing this for almost a decade now, I have a firm grasp of how best to help students learn quickly and efficiently. I am accepting new students at any time, and have a wide range of scheduling options to fit everyone's needs. Feel free to contact me for more information or to schedule a session. Summer is a great time to work in improving academic skills before a new school year!

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.

I have extensive experience with the Mac OS operating system. I have used a Mac for over 10 years, and have served in a support role for a Mac computer lab in my school district.

I also have a teaching endorsement as a school technology specialist.

All of our staff and students use Windows machines, and I am responsible for the setup, training, and ongoing user support, for our Windows computers.
