About Gregory

Hello, My name is Greg and I am a cum laude graduate of Wright State University with a degree in Liberal Studies with an official minor in French and an unofficial double minor in Russian Studies. I am also certified in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) through Wright State University. The majority of my childhood and adolescence was spent in the dramatic arts. I have received professional training and coaching from internationally recognized authorities in the dance world such as Brian Jolly, Elena Grineko, Vitaliy & Irina Kozhev, Tong Wang, and Terri McWilliams (currently head of Wright State University's program of dance). I received gymnastic instruction from the YMCA of Xenia Ohio and the Dayton Academy of Gymnastics and Dance. I have also trained under the Dayton Ballet School and worked for the South Dayton Dance Theatre as a guest artist. I have received three local theatre awards (Daytony, Blackburn, and Rodin) for my performances on stage as well as for my work as a choreographer in Fiddler on the Roof, The Sound of Music, and Legally Blonde, the Musical.

My affinity for language has been lifelong as well as my love of literature and the spoken word. In 2014, I was chosen to teach English in Japan under the KAKE Educational Institute. Now, I am pursing a master's of art in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MA TESOL) at Wright State University and working as a graduate assistant professor of English. During my career at WSU, I have worked as a supplemental instructor of French and tutor for both French and Russian language courses from beginning to advanced levels. I have taught lessons privately in my home and I am looking to expand my student base. I also have a series of novels and works of musical theatre in the process of publication. So, I am prepared to assist anyone seeking improvement in the disciplines of language, theatre, or literature. I offer patient, knowledgeable instruction with flexible hours. Online lessons available. Thank you.
