About Gregory

I earned my BS in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing from Towson University, and both my MA in TESOL and my Advanced Certificate in Administration and Supervision from Hunter College. After graduating Towson, I wanted to find a job in business; but after living in Rome, Italy; and tutoring English I felt the call to become a teacher. Even now, I hold a NYS School Building Leader license but choose not to pursue a job as principal because I love teaching too much! The relationships I build with my students while I help them achieve their success are why I love going to work every day.

My experience consists of teaching and tutoring for 9 years in two NYC high schools - one very competitive, and the other with a poor inner-city population. As a result, I’m very aware of how to vary instruction based on a student’s needs, skill level, background knowledge, and individual goals. In addition, I have taught and tutored a variety of courses such as ESL (beginner, intermediate, advanced), ELA, Global History 9 and 10, U.S. History, U.S. History Regents Prep, and SAT Critical Reading Prep. I enjoy tutoring the content of U.S. History and Global History because as a former high school AP student the subjects always fascinated me, and I take pleasure in fostering my students’ interest in the subject as well. However, I also enjoy teaching reading comprehension and writing skills because they are applicable to not only history and English, but other subjects, too. My philosophy on tutoring is that it is a partnership; I provide the content knowledge and strategies for delivering the content in comprehensible and fun manner while the student dedicates his/her time and effort.

Finally, I take great pride in my students’ success, and I am their cheerleader and tireless advocate! When I’m not teaching or tutoring, I enjoy going to the gym, studying Italian and Spanish, traveling, taking salsa and bachata classes, being outdoors, meeting new people, and using Groupon to try new things - including those out of my comfort zone. I look forward to working with you!

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.

American History

I earned my Master's in TESOL from Hunter College in 2007, and have been teaching ESL for 9 years both in stand alone classes (ELA) and as a co-teacher in Global Studies and U.S. History in New York City. I've taught and tutored Global Studies and U.S. History Regents Prep to ESL and general education students.

ESL/ESOL

I served on the New York State Education Committee of Practitioners for ESL and Bilingual Education. I've also been the ESL coordinator at my schools.

Grammar

I've taught and tutored Global Studies and U.S. History Regents Prep to ESL and general education students. Not only do I teach content, but I spend a great deal of time on essay writing for history and ELA. I use graphic organizers and other materials to aid essay organization, paragraph structure, transitional language, and analysis.

Reading

I've taught and tutored Global History and U.S. History Regents Prep to ESL and general education students. Teaching reading strategies has always been a focus of every class I teach. I have a list of strategies for course material and the reading comprehension section of the SAT.

Regents

I have been teaching Global Studies and U.S. History Regents classes for 5 years. I taught U.S. History Regents Prep this past fall. I've taught and prepped ESL students for the ELA Regents for 8 years. I've attended numerous professional development workshops for Regents exams, also.

Social Studies

I have been co-teaching Global Studies (9th and 10th grade) for over 5 years and U.S. History (11th grade) for 3 years. Not only am I very familiar with the content, I focus on scaffolding and differentiating the material and tasks for English Language Learners and other struggling students. I have tutored the same students after school, and taught a general ed U.S. History Regents Prep course this fall. In addition, I was an AP social studies student when I was in high school.

World History

I earned my Master's in TESOL from Hunter College in 2007, and have been teaching ESL for 9 years both in stand alone classes (ELA) and as a co-teacher in Global Studies and U.S. History in New York City. I've taught and tutored Global Studies and U.S. History Regents Prep to ESL and general education students.

Not only do I teach content, but I spend a great deal of time on essay writing for history and ELA. I use graphic organizers and other materials to aid essay organization, paragraph structure, transitional language, and analysis.
