About Greg

While missionaries in Asia for 25 years, my wife and I not only taught small and large groups extensively in many types of settings, but also home schooled our own three children (one of whom is now herself a very successful WyzAnt tutor)! I am easy-going and love to inject a bit of humor into everything I do, but am tenacious when it comes to solving knotty problems or overcoming obstacles. In addition to excellent English skills, I have a strong working knowledge of a number of Asian languages (Pushto, Dari, Urdu, Hindi, and Tamil) as well as Swedish, and am familiar with the cultures found in the regions where these languages are spoken. That gives me, therefore, an edge when it comes to working with students from those regions. I also play a number of stringed instruments (guitar, bass, mandolin, strumstick, rabab, piano) mostly by ear, but do have an intuitive knowledge of the fundamentals in music, and can guide students through basic sight-reading courses. I have what I believe is a God-given talent for improvisation and am eager to help others unlock their hidden God-given talents. My wife and I have developed excellent long-term relationships with a number of pastors, churches, and employers in the Nashville/Franklin area which I can cite upon request. Looking forward to meeting 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.

Study Skills

I have excellent study skills which were reflected in my induction into the Honor Society during high school and in my maintaining a 3.7 GPA in college. I enjoy learning and desire to help potential students discover the joy of learning which I believe is fundamental to good learning.
