About Gregory

I am a graduate student and adjunct professor at Hunter College. I have experience tutoring lowerclassmen all my years through high school and college and volunteering as a tutor of various courses at refugee centers.

I come from a family of educators and have a particular appreciation for the value of a good teacher. My personal experience with private tutors has shown me that there is little positive correlation between a long list of credentials in the subject and competence at teaching the subject - acquiring knowledge and sharing it are two separate processes. The tutors who have been most successful in piquing my curiosity and improving my academic performance have been deeply knowledgeable, but wouldn't have managed to instill their knowledge in me without their limitless enthusiasm, their sharp sense of humor and their engaging character. Inasmuch as I have the talent and resourcefulness, I try to teach in the same manner.

Thus, my goal in tutoring is to combine my theoretical knowledge of the subject with my practical knowledge of the technicalities of the academic world. It is important to enable the student to succeed in their standardized tests, to guide them through the characteristic peculiarities of the educational institution they attend or aim to attend and to perform well in the evaluations required of them. But indispensable for this success is the nurturing of a genuine curiosity for the subject.

The universe of mathematics is an immense, intricately interconnected and ever-expanding structure. It can be extraordinary and beautiful but also overwhelming in its strange abstractions, and a lesson can either be an exciting exploration of this awe-inspiring mental edifice or a painfully boring and stifling enumeration of endless logical implications. I try my very best to achieve the former, and with the help of my students we can both avoid the latter!
