Hi, I'm Gregory! I'm a professional math tutor with seven years' experience. During that time, I have also done much science tutoring and math college placement test tutoring, and I have done remedial math teaching for the past two semesters. I have also written many tutorials for various math subjects that students struggled with that they could use for help when a tutor was not available.

Hi, I'm Gregory! I'm a professional math tutor with seven years' experience. During that time, I have also done much science tutoring and math college placement test tutoring, and I have done remedial math teaching for the past two semesters. I have also written many tutorials for various math subjects that students struggled with that they could use for help when a tutor was not available.

I started work as a professional tutor after I graduated Virginia Tech in Spring 2013 with my B.S. in Mathematics. I was not really certain then what I wanted to do for a career. I had many ideas come and go, but my work-study experience tutoring at New River Community College before I went to Virginia Tech stuck with me. There was nothing more satisfying than to break down a problem and see something that a student had a hard time with become simple. Not long after graduating, I went back to New River Community College to see if I could keep doing tutoring, and then I learned that I could do it professionally, not just for work-study. I have been a professional tutor ever since.

One of my strengths as a math tutor, I would say, is my ability to teach it and to teach it simply. I can not only do the problem, but I can break it down into steps and delve into why we have the steps and why they are done the way they are. I know the content well enough to be in-depth, and I can apply it in an easy-to-remember fashion. It is this kind of knowledge that I've seen help students cease from struggling with problems.

Another one of my strengths as a math tutor is, I would say, boldness. Even if I have not seen the content before, I know enough to try messing with it instead of being scared off. This is how I became good at tutoring statistics, and I have been able to help many students in that subject and many others just because I was bold enough to try.

I am easy to reach and will respond to inquiries quickly. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson!

Gregory is helping improve grades

Gregory has been tutoring my daughter for the past few weeks, specifically in her AP High School Statistics class, and she is saying that her grades are improving. Thanks Gregory.

Alex, 15 lessons with Gregory

Helpful, knowledgeable and patient

I found Gregory to be very helpful. He worked through the problems I needed help with and explained them clearly. He was also very patient and made sure I was following along and comprehending everything I had doubts on.

Eugenia, 1 lesson with Gregory

Great tutoring session!

We discussed the t-distribution and using it to do confidence intervals and hypothesis testing. I enjoy tutoring from Greg. He's knowledgeable, patient and is great at teaching the concepts in meaningful ways. He's a great tutor.

Dan, 13 lessons with Gregory

The best ever!

Mr. Johnson is extremely patient and has a kind manner that is never wavering. He has a resolve that is unmatched. Therefore, he will work through every possible solution until the question is resolved. He is a brilliant mathematician and an even better person.

Sharice, 13 lessons with Gregory

Very patient tutor

Stats is brand new to me. After 2 weeks I was thinking about dropping the course because I was lost and frustrated. I decided to look for a tutor and found Gregory. He is very patient and explains the information clearly and in various manners so I can absorb the information. After a couple of sessions he helped me gain the confidence I needed to stick with it. I highly recommend Gregory as a tutor.

Kimberly, 6 lessons with Gregory

Great tutor

Had first tutoring session with Gregory for physics. Great to work with. Very knowledgeable. Responds to questions in a timely manner. Highly recommend for physics. Thanks

Sumera, 42 lessons with Gregory

Great Tutor!

Gregory is a very knowledgeable tutor. He is approachable and, most importantly, patient. He broke down math concepts into simple steps, and now I have a complete understanding of them. I plan on booking sessions with him in the future.

Greg is a great tutor!

Gregory is an excellent tutor who is helping a great deal with my Elementary Stats class! We are working on probability in class and I was struggling with it and he is making it seem easy

Hannah, 4 lessons with Gregory

best tutor I’ve ever had

Gregory has helped me overcome my deficiencies in math. He tutored me for calculus 1 for a short summer semester and made it much easier for me. I highly recommend Gregory as he is very knowledgeable, patient, and is a very good teacher.

Mason, 41 lessons with Gregory

Good tutor

Book a session for since I had a tough time understanding circuit analysis. Explained it very well, and was able to grasp the concept within the lesson. Will/am booking again for continued lessons.
