Greg Crites

Academic Tutor

I was born and raised in Los Gatos, CA, and I developed a variety of academic interests growing up. Each time I found a new interest, that became what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. So, at different points in my life I have prepared for life as Shortstop for the San Francisco Giants, Point Guard for the Golden State Warriors, Sportscenter Anchor, rock star, and philosopher. I still refuse to rule out a few of those. It was not until after graduating from Santa Clara University that I truly considered my calling.

I come from a long line of educators and always felt drawn to that profession. The more I looked into teaching and tutoring, the more I loved it. I realized this was not an interest, it was a vocation. I felt called to help educate students and make a difference in my community and our future. Now, after a few years in the education world, that feeling has only grown stronger. I feel a particularly strong connection to the South Bay and know that well educated students will help their communities grow to new heights. Not unlike Thomas Jefferson, I feel very passionately that education is vital to building a strong city, state, and country. I feel very fortunate to be part of that effort in this part of the world.

I chose to study and teach history because it was something I had been doing my whole life already. I was the kid who ordered history leisure books during book orders in grade school. I was the kid who sought out documentaries on anything and everything history. I tried to soak up as much history as I could and loved realizing the connections between modern times and the past. Now, engaging with history is what I am lucky enough to do as my job. I am a sucker for a good story and that is exactly how I see history. There is so much to be discovered and still more to be learned. The most exciting part is that we all get to help write the sequel.

Other than tutoring, I enjoy supporting Bay Area sports teams, reading about history, and finding new places to hike and explore.
