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.

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.

Debbie, 6 lessons with Greg

Very helpful.

Did practice test with my son and followed up with a list of review questions. We will be using Greg again - very happy so far. --------------------------------------

Really helpful for my son!

He provided sample problems to work through and he was very patient and explained everything very clearly. He made sure that my son knew what he was doing before moving on to the next problem.
