I contacted Greg after going through two tutors for physics help. I was taking a summer physics course, and by the time I had contacted Greg, there was only one week left of my class. Greg so graciously began creating a game plan for the next week. He works efficiently and thoroughly, and I was impressed by his lectures and tutoring. He worked hard to help me understand topics completely, and after working with Greg, even for the short time that I did, I left the class with a much better understanding of the material. He will stop at nothing to help his students learn, and learn well! Thank you Greg!

After struggling with my first year calculus course, I contacted Greg to have him help me retake the class the next semester, and this was without a doubt one of the best academic decisions I ever made. Thanks to Greg’s expertise and teaching skills, I excelled in the class, eventually earning an A+. With this experience, I decided to have Greg tutor me in the following semesters through classes such as vector calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations. With his help I was able to perform well in these classes as well as remember key concepts. In addition to tutoring me in my classes, he also helped me develop independent study skills for my future classes, which I used successfully during my differential equations II class. I don’t know how I could have gotten this far without his help, and I am forever grateful.

In my first year at Purdue, I found myself struggling with the content and pace of my Calculus II class. During my first meeting with Greg, I was immediately impressed with his knowledge of Purdue’s mathematics department as well as the course content. He correctly assessed my gaps and helped me develop a plan to succeed in Calc II. During sessions, Greg presented clear lessons, and he was always willing to spend extra time reviewing until he was sure I completely understood the content. With Greg’s approach, I retained the material better and learned the concepts at a deeper level. Greg ultimately helped me to excel in this class. I would recommend his services to anyone looking to strengthen their confidence and ability in mathematics.

Greg did a great job helping me with Calculus my freshman year at Alabama– received an A in the class!

I’ve used Greg’s services for 4 consecutive semesters, and I continue to do well in math classes. It’s no coincidence, as Greg’s one-on-one approach ensures that you will really learn and understand the material. This past semester, he helped me to my highest grade yet in a college math class in linear algebra (Purdue MA265). Greg is always willing to keep working with you until you understand a concept, even if it means going well past the scheduled amount of time. He will actually teach you concepts, not just how to do problems, which is hugely beneficial both for a given course and for courses down the road. I will surely contact Greg for all my future math tutoring needs.

I just wanted to thank you for all your help with my son this past semester. I can hardly believe that he ended up with an A+ in both classes! All I have to say is that you’re awesome. While I suppose we should give our son some of the credit for putting in the work, we all agree it’s mostly you. :) You obviously knew how to explain the material well, made sure he retained the understanding from week to week, and held him accountable for doing the work. He particularly liked the online method. It was flexible enough to allow for real-time back & forth interaction and uploading materials, and had the added benefit of being able to view the recorded sessions to see problems worked and hear the explanations again later. That proved to be quite a valuable advantage! He is looking forward to working with you on STAT 225 next semester.

We began utilizing Greg at Higher Math Help during our son’s first semester of pre-calculus. With each passing week, it was becoming clear he did not understand the material and was falling behind. After just a few hours with Greg, the lost time was quickly recovered and comprehension of new material was demonstrated in our son’s homework results, test scores and semester grade. Our son’s confidence is significantly improved and he is looking forward to taking calculus. Because of this positive experience, our son also works with Greg to prepare for the SAT. We are extremely pleased with our son’s progress and the positive influence Greg has made through all his efforts and teaching abilities.

Online tutoring is really awesome plus the fact that it records and you can review helps a lot.

My son tried to find tutors for a Calc class at Purdue, but he was late enough into the semester that he had tremendous difficulty finding anyone to help him, let alone someone who was competent at it. Just before he started working with Greg, he started working with an aeronautical engineering grad student and the difference was compelling. After two sessions with the grad student, he dropped the person because of their inability to communicate what they knew. Many are the people who understand math and can easily perform the required exercises. Few are the people who understand math, can easily perform the required exercises, AND CAN RELAY THAT KNOWLEDGE TO OTHERS. He was dedicated in his committment to help my son and was available whenever he was needed. If you are in need of math tutoring, you are in need of a teacher and I would strongly recommend Greg.

After I dropedp my calc course the first semester of my freshman year, I decided to have another go at it the previous semester. The best thing I could have done was contact Greg. He took the time to go over the concepts with me so that I would have a more in depth understanding of what I was doing during my homework, quizzes, and exams. Greg saved my grade in that class!!!

All I have to say is that Greg was by far the best tutor I have ever had. I struggled understanding the concepts in my Finite class and Greg was willing and able to help me understand. He was very willing to meet with me whenever I needed him and his services helped me graduate from Indiana. Thank you Greg.

I contacted Greg after failing my second consecutive midterm in Purdue’s MA165 (Calc I) course. I saw significant improvement by the final exam, scoring well above the class average. Greg’s extensive knowledge of the material, coupled with his ability to explain concepts both in-depth and in simpler terms, helped me immensely with my understanding of calculus. In addition, he was always willing to extend a session in order to ensure that I had a firm grasp of the material. I will definitely continue to use Greg’s services for future math courses.

Real analysis (MA 341) was one of the toughest classes I’ve taken at purdue. While knowing that, I’ve still paid little attention to the class until the end of second midterm, which turned out to be horrible. Desperate in need of help, I came across to Greg’s tutoring and it proved to be the right choice. He made this class look easy, explaining everything in formal definitions from just memory, but still very clear and easy to understand. And to be very honest, tutors sections were enjoyable and I actually told many of my friends how much I have learnt from this class, all because of his effort. What’s more is he’s a very diligent and dedicated teacher, always asking for class information in advance for self preparation. Unlike other tutors, he doesn’t end the class when time is up, but makes sure the student understands all the covered topics before he/she goes. We were stuck in the library one day before my final exam in front of 20 practice questions at the evening, and we ended up going through all of them until 3am! The most important part is, I got an A for my final exam. Thanks greg!
