About Gary

I was a psychotherapist for 21 years in Cincinnati, Ohio. I began my teaching career as a math tutor in 1976. In 1978, I began teaching in various colleges and universities. I have taught courses ranging from psychology, sociology, counseling, psychotherapist, math, statistics, High School English, grammar, writing and English as a Second Language. I have taught both credit and non-credit courses.

I began my writing career in 1981 and am a published author, currently writing a second book as well as writing for an Australian magazine. In December 2015, I ended my teaching career at Duke University where I taught religious and spiritual courses because I’m also a priest (academic only). After leaving Duke, I decided I wanted to share my expertise and skills in English, grammar, writing and reading comprehension, helping student achieve their highest standers.

I have taught for 40 years both high school, adults and college students. I can take difficult concepts and make them simple. I use these skills in my writer personal style.

I intrigue students to use their innate abilities in learning. I create an environment in which students feel free to learn and look forward to their next tutoring session. I give them the opportunity to take responsibility for their learning by helping them understand their unique interest in whatever topic they decide to pursue. Together, we decide on the best schedule that fits both their needs and myself. I give student accolades—rewarding them in the learning process.
