About Gregory

I teach because I really enjoy the subject and the interaction with students, not because it's my job. I have taught and tutored at the community college level since the 1990s and have achieved a great deal of success in both the classroom and the laboratory as indicated through student assessment and student course section selection. I am well respected by my colleagues for my willingness to be "student friendly" while maintaining the course quality expected by the academic institution.

In 1967 I graduated from the College of Wooster (Ohio) with a BA in chemistry with IS research into the workings of ion sensitive electrodes. I then continued my education at Purdue University, receiving a MS degree in 1969. I then spent three years at SUNY Buffalo working toward a PhD in crystallography. I received an MBA and a Professional Masters Degree in computational chemistry.

My teaching philosophy is quite simple. I attempt to enable the student to successfully solve chemistry problems. This is done by having the student solve the problem while I act as a friendly non condescending facilitator. This is based on my conviction that anyone can learn the basics of chemistry, it's a matter of overcoming the negative stigma that surrounds the subject, in a positive environment where student wants to learn and the tutor maintains the student's self esteem.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chemistry

I can be classified as a well qualified chemistry tutor by my educational background, my years of teaching experience and by my acceptance by both students and colleagues. I have received BA, MS and pMS (2006) degrees from accredited schools, I've had successful teaching positions at two community colleges as both a lecturer and lab instructor. I can provide both student and professor written references which help confirm my claim.
