About Gregory

I was a public school math teacher for over 35 years, teaching at both the jr. high and sr. high levels. I've taught all secondary math topics, concentrating mostly on algebra 1 & 2, pre-calculus (including trig), and calculus. I've conducted thousands of tutoring sessions over my career, and I know the 'stumbling blocks' kids typically face. To help them, I focus on explaining WHY things work the way they do, rather than simply showing the procedure used to get the answer. Getting students to see the 'big picture', and continually spiraling previously-learned material, is crucial to their developing deep understandings.

Additionally, I was the Lead Teacher for Mathematics in my district. This gave me the added opportunity to see how the math curriculum meshes from K-12, as well as to stay abreast of the latest teaching and learning methodologies.

Exceptional - A true teacher!

My son absolutely enjoyed Greg's lessons which gave him a nice refresher during the summer so that he could go into his advanced algebra classes with confidence. My son is smart, but easily bored and not very patient at doing routine things over and over again. Never once was he bored with what he was learning with Greg. There is no doubt that Greg is "Pro" and absolutely the "Real Deal" he eas
