Hello! I first began tutoring my senior year in college as part of TA-ing for three different classes and continued tutoring after college for two years before beginning graduate school. I have gotten a lot of enjoyment out of identifying student's points of confusion and clarifying material that seemed hopelessly confusing before. The experience I have had tutoring has driven me to my current career goal of becoming a college professor.
My goal is to have my students have a complete and generalizable knowledge of the material we cover. Thus, if we are working on algebra then I would expect my student's knowledge to be able to be applied to physics or chemistry easily and with complete confidence rather than only feeling comfortable with work they have already seen. This takes the form of unseen practice problems in each session that build upon past material but are within completely novel contexts that should challenge the student and give real feedback as to the actual skills they have gained while working with me, rather than whether or not they have memorized a process. Flexibility is key to being able to succeed in high level examinations! I have a lot invested in my skills as a teacher, as such, an open exchange of feedback is really necessary for both of us to be satisfied with my services. Let me know if I'm helping you to the highest degree possible!
My math background is that I achieved a 33 on the math section of the ACT, have taken calculus, statistics, physics, and chemistry all at the college level, as well as having tutored high school level geometry and algebra since 2012.
My science background is that I have a BA in biology with a concentration in neuroscience from Williams College where I also completed the premedical curriculum and was inducted into the Sigma Xi scientific honor society. I graduated in 2012. I am currently a PhD student in neuroscience and work in a laboratory studying neural circuits in stress and anxiety related behavior. I tutored high school biology from 2013-2014, but absolutely feel comfortable with high school chemistry as well as I have taken general, organic, and physical chemistry all at the college level.
I would love to help you reach your goals in math and science so please contact me if I can be of service! Hello!

Greg started with a broad range of appropriate pre-algebra activities to assess my daughters skills. He was engaging and attentive.
Greg assisted my son with Geometry and Biology support!
After just four sessions my son has increased his grade in Honors Biology and Greg is committed to helping him improve his grade in Geometry!
He has helped him build his confidence and knowledge base in these courses!
Greg helped my son with chemistry problem solving. My son gained new insights into approaching problems and he also gained additional confidence.
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.
