About Greg


Bio

Hi there, I'm Greg! I've been a tutor and a TA since my sophomore year in college nearly a decade ago, and I have loved every minute. The greatest thing about tutoring is helping students understand what they need to know to excel in their class. My favorite moments in school were always those where I finally understood how concepts connected, and everything just made sense. That is the service I try to provide my students.

My proudest accomplishment as a tutor is the success my students...

Hi there, I'm Greg! I've been a tutor and a TA since my sophomore year in college nearly a decade ago, and I have loved every minute. The greatest thing about tutoring is helping students understand what they need to know to excel in their class. My favorite moments in school were always those where I finally understood how concepts connected, and everything just made sense. That is the service I try to provide my students.

My proudest accomplishment as a tutor is the success my students have had. Previous students have done well in their chemistry classes, and I'm happy to say they have gone on to attend good colleges, graduate programs, dental school, and medical school. If you are interested, please feel free to contact me. I hope to help you have the same success.

I'm a chemist, and I recently graduated from Cornell University with my Masters of Science. Before attending Cornell, I worked for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as a chemist, which I started following my undergraduate studies at Binghamton University. In my career as a tutor I have had many different students and have adapted to many different styles of learning and different expectations students have as to the role their tutor should have in their education.

I have a very flexible schedule, and I am available to tutor both in person and online. Please feel free to contact me. I look forward to helping you with your chemistry, math, or general science.

I'm happy to help with the following courses:

high school level: intro to chemistry, honors chemistry, AP chemistry, physical science, physics, geometry, and algebra.
college level: general chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, photochemistry, and computational chemistry.

Organic Chemistry

I am a chemist with nearly a decade of tutoring experience between my undergraduate and graduate educational careers. My undergraduate and graduate research, and most of my course work has been in organic chemistry. I was a TA for organic chemistry for three years, and roughly half of my former students have been organic students. I love organic chemistry and would be happy to help you understand it.

Greg helped me understand fundamental concepts in organic chemistry and gave me examples to practice what we were learning. He was very easy to understand. All in all very helpful.

Knowledge and patient! The Best Tutor!

He is the best! He doesn't put you down for asking questions, instead he encourages it! I've had three other tutors before him and cancelled with all of them! Greg is the best! He is making up for a lot that I didn't understand not only in OChem 1 but also Gen Chem!

Very good and knowledgeable tutor

Greg had a very, very good knowledge of the topics we learned about. He also had a very good way of explaining and was always very patient. He was also very flexible with his time. I went from a 5 to a 1. Very good tutor!

Bernardo, 3 lessons with Greg

Great and patient tutor!

Greg was a wonderful and knowledgeable tutor. He took the time to explain each concept to me thoroughly. Definitely the best I’ve had! I highly recommend him to anyone who is currently studying chemistry!

Conquer Your Chemistry Fears With Greg S.

I can't even begin to express how grateful I am to have Greg S. as a tutor. His help and skills were utilized for General Chemistry II (which I secured an A in), and now in Biochemistry where there is a heavy focus on organic molecules. I directly attribute my A in Gen Chem II to the countless hours we spent working out problems and discussing lab concepts which were not clear in my course lectures. He is extremely talented in breaking down difficult concepts into smaller steps, and explaining the relevance of the topic at hand. You won't regret booking a session with Greg! I nearly gave up my dream of pursuing medicine because I would have nightmares about chemistry. Not with Greg, you will feel confident, well-prepared for exams, and thoroughly understand the mechanics behind the answers. I have chosen to stick with Greg as my tutor after seeing a huge boost in my grades, well worth the session to invest in yourself. Greg is patient, resourceful, happy to give extra tips and tricks, responsive to requests to book sessions, and passionate about teaching. I only wish I could have him as my actual university chemistry professor. We need more people who are passionate about chemistry and not just research to teach the subject; Greg is your guy. The sessions are enjoyable and every once in while he with throw in a quirky joke as an added bonus. Thank you for all of your help, you are wonderful to learn from!

Excellent Tutor

Greg S. was very knowledge in Chemistry. He was patient and helped my son alot. He definitely will be my sons science tutor for this upcoming school years as well.

Great Inorganic Chemistry Tutor

Greg help me work through character table problems and was very good at explaining how to approach problems. He was able to answer my questions and improve me understanding greatly!

Take him!

I was initially hesitant about trying a tutor online, but after a month of struggling to understand chemistry by myself, I was desperate for help. I thought that even if it was helpful, it would take endless hours (and endless money) to ever be able to catch up on everything I was confused about. Within one hour of tutoring with Greg, I understood more than I EVER had in the lectures - and best of all, he helped me understand it well enough to be able to do on my own. I've been taking him for a month now, and I only wish he was teaching my class. If you can, take him. He's very patient and is able to break down concepts quickly without you ever realizing just how fast you're getting through the material, which is a rare gift. He is consistent about making sure you're tracking with him, and is always really happy to provide clarification at any point. Highly recommend.

great tutor!

He is very patient and a great help with learning concepts and formulas for my general chemistry class. I felt confident on my last exam from working with Greg.
