Gregory Samuels

Academic Tutor

As a San Jose resident for most of my life and a graduate of Santa Clara University, I have a passion for education and for teaching in the South Bay Area. I have several years of experience with tutoring, a background in psychology, and experience as a classroom teacher in elementary and middle school. My experiences give me insight into a variety of developmental levels and a broad range of experiences to draw from as a tutor, and I enjoy dedicating my time to giving opportunities to others in order to help them to reach their highest potential.

I have worked throughout Santa Clara County as an educator, including Campbell, Gilroy, San Jose, Saratoga, and Los Gatos, and I enjoy the diversity of experiences offered within the South Bay. My work has exposed me to various teaching strategies and practices to serve the individual needs of each unique student. At AJ Tutoring, I specialize in building fundamental skills, whether on an academic level with elementary and middle school students, or on a test taking level with high school students preparing for the SAT and ACT exams. 

As a lifelong learner, I have always enjoyed both learning and applying my studies to better understand the world around me and furthering my own understanding of scientific research. With my students, I help contextualize the information they are learning in real-life applications. I strongly believe that, although learning can sometimes be difficult, with patience and effort we can make effective progress.

Apart from teaching, I enjoy reading about history, taking care of animals, and playing music.
