The CUNY Graduate Center (Enrolled)
I am a college literature teacher specializing in English literature, a published academic writer, and a PhD candidate in Comparative Literature at The CUNY Graduate Center. I've taught college-level English literature and world literature for the past three years at John Jay College (CUNY). I've also taught world literature at Baruch College (CUNY) for several semesters now. (Starting this August, I will also be teaching composition/first-year writing at Pace University.)
All my classes are writing-intensive. During the academic term I help students with the mechanics of college-level essays on a daily basis - both in individual tutoring sessions and through email communications. As a teacher and a writer, I know the ins and outs of college-level essay writing, including successful college admissions essays. Helping students draft and edit their papers and other written projects is more than a job for me: it's a priority.
I am also a graduate of an IB Program (Atlanta International School), and am familiar with the Extended Essay.

I'm in the process of writing a book. Gray gave me ideas on what the book needed in order to achieve my desired goals. His advice was concise, sincere and appreciated.
His is very knowledgeable about writing and is guiding me in the right direction. I am currently completing a 40 page, 30 Annotated Bibliography, (Chicago) Capstone. My topic is the Harlem Renaissance, and I am writing about three distinguished visual artists, Jacob Lawrence, James Van Der Zee, and Archibald Motley, Jr. Art History is my major with a minor in African American studies. My Capstone topic is about the Harlem Renaissance. Mr. Gray, has brought much needed clarity to my mind about writing this massive Capstone paper (6 credits). He is also assisting me with my Italian Renaissance and Egyptian Art History Research papers that is due on the last day of class -- Spring semester - May 2, 2016.
Finally, Mr. Gray immediately responds to ALL my dashboard questions. This allows me to finish ALL my writings on time. I am 56 years of age, and I am very thankful for his professional guidance in completing this very important Art History - Capstone. I would describe him as "brilliant" and his tutoring rates are very affordable.
Unlike many other value tutors out there who ask you to do tests in front of them, Gray teaches students with a heavy basis on student to tutor interaction.
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.
