About Gregory

Hello, Greg here. I am a young inspired soul from Pittsburgh, PA, now living in Portland. I have a BA in anthropology and cinema from UCLA. I taught English as a second language (ESL) in Spain for two years. I am a self-taught accordion player of 7 years. I am an employed blog writer and creative writing is a passion; I can help children and students express themselves and develop their writing skills through short fiction and different poetry forms. I also teach/tutor beginning or intermediate Spanish as a second language. I have two years' teaching experience including group classes and individual students.

I am passionate about educating the right way -- helping the students learn specifically what they want to learn in a fun way so that they foster an interest in the subject...and hopefully a passion. I stand firm in the belief that students won't live up to their potential and progress fluidly unless they want to be taking the classes themselves and are eager to learn. Because of this I try to structure the lessons in a way that the students enjoy the learning process and progress in the areas in which they want to progress. Thus I cater all the lessons to the individual students and may teach in different styles and with different methods depending on what the student likes.
