About Greg

As a Ph.D in mechanical engineering I worked at an energy research laboratory where I constantly used my skills as an engineer, scientist, mathematician and programmer. I also managed a group of 25 engineers/scientist, mostly with Ph.D's and I am listed in "Who's Who in Technology Today", listed in "American Men and Women in Science", listed in "International Who's Who in Engineering", attended Worcester Polytechnic Institute with a full academic scholarship and attended the University of Connecticut on a fellowship. During my career, I did ground breaking development work in finite element analysis, systems analysis and magnetohydrodyanmics, which resulted in 5 patents. I also started my own business in consulting on computer programming and applied my engineering analysis skills to financial entities. I am now retired, but during retirement I worked as Math Adjunct Professor, at Dixie State University for two years, before decided to be a tutor several years ago. I am extremely well versed in the art of test taking, usually excelling in the tests that I have taken, including getting a perfect math score on my Graduate Record Exam. I developed a unique method of helping students score better on multiple choice math tests, including the ACT, by enhancing their guessing skills for problems that they cannot solve. I am an excellent problem solver and as a teacher/tutor try to teach students more than one way to solve a problem. I've discovered that when a student knows several ways to solve a problem their understanding of the underlying concepts is vastly improved.

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.

Algebra 1

I have tutored numerous students in the St. George area in pre-algebra, algebra 1 and algebra 2, besides having taught algebra at DSC.

Football

I played football for 7 years (3 in high school and 4 in college, and was on the starting team for 6 of those years (except freshman year in college). I started on both offense and defense and only came out of the game for punting and kick-off plays (except I was the back-up kick-off kicker). When playing in high school, my team won NYC championship and I was highlighted in the newspaper. I received honorable mention as an all-star college player for the New England region. Lastly, I am an excellent analyst of games, as well as a good prognosticator..

Fortran

I started programming in FORTRAN in the 1960s. I worked as a FORTRAN programmer while going to graduate school in engineering. I programmed in FORTRAN for many years as a research engineer. I also programmed in assembler, COBOL, Pl/1, C, C++, and SQL.

Mechanical Engineering

I have a PhD in mechanical engineering. I taught undergraduate mechanical engineering courses at the University of Connecticut as a graduate student. I worked as a mechanical engineer for over 30 years. I am a certified tutor in many other subjects and have been successfully tutoring for several years.
