About Greg

I have turned mastering "school" into a full-time career, having been successful with at least a 3.99 GPA through high school, college, and graduate school. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Religion at Baylor University, but I also have academic experience in History, as a History major at Lee University. As a PhD student, I know what it takes to succeed at a high level consistently. I also have experience as a graduate assistant (one year), grader (two years), and tutor (two years total), positions that have helped me develop the skills to work with graduate, undergraduate, and high school students.

As a graduate student, I know achieving a competitive score on the GRE can be stressful, difficult, and time-consuming. Having taken the test three times, I have tried numerous test strategies and prep books, so I can tailor a plan to suit your needs. I scored a 97% on both the Verbal and Analytical Writing portions of the GRE, and I can help increase your score.

I can tutor in writing for any humanities subject, and I know what it takes to write essays and research papers that consistently get A's. I know how to study for exams, figure out what professors and teachers want, and consistently earn A's. I scored a perfect score on the English section of the ACT and a 5 on the AP English exam, so I can help your writing at whatever stage.

As a history major, I earned A's in all my courses, specializing in American history, European history, Latin American history, and ancient Mediterranean history and religion. I scored a 5 on both the AP US History and European History exams. My current area of study is the history of early Christianity and the ancient Mediterranean, and I have 3+ years of graduate coursework in this area directly.

I am also an advanced reader of ancient Greek, having taken 30+ college and graduate credit hours, consistently earning A's. I have tutored many graduate students in Greek, typically for a year at a time to get through their first year successfully.

As previously mentioned, I have tutored students in ancient Greek, but I am also familiar with Hebrew, German, French, and Spanish. While an undergraduate, I tutored in the Lee University tutoring center, working with many high school students in multiple subjects (writing, English, history, math, and science). I have taken and can tutor the following undergraduate level classes: Ancient Greek, Biblical Hebrew, First Year German, French, and Spanish, Introductions to World History, U.S. History, and European History, Algebra, and Writing/Composition.

Please contact me so we can take your academic success to the next level. I will tailor a plan to suit you and give you the tools and confidence you need to accomplish your goals. I love getting to know students and figuring out how to achieve academic success at the next level.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Greek

I have taken more than 30 graduate credit hours in ancient Greek, passing every course with a grade of A. I have tutored students in multiple classes, from no Greek experience to intermediate. I am currently in a PhD program in New Testament, which requires me to work with primary texts in the Greek language on a daily basis. My tutoring methods are to learn where a student is at in his or her Greek knowledge, to find out what textbook he or she is using, and to isolate for them the most important techniques for reading/translating Greek.
