Hi, I'm Gregory Bernstein. I'm a senior at Vanderbilt University and I'm majoring in Political Science. More than anything else, what makes me a great tutor is experience. I've been tutoring students for four years and look forward to tutoring new students with Varsity Tutors.

Primarily, I work with students on SAT test prep and have seen students increase their SAT composite score by more than 350 points after working with me. I've also tutored students who were initially struggling in a variety of AP subjects and went on to earn 4s and 5s on their AP tests.

Additionally, I teach debate and public speaking to 30-40 students each year (as part of a speech and debate institute that I own and teach at) and have spent countless hours understanding what strategies and techniques are required to be an effective teacher. I believe that after tutoring, coaching, and teaching for 4 years, I've learned a great deal not only about what I teach, but about how to teach. I'm very interested in pedagogy and am always asking myself "is this the most effective way to teach this subject or this concept," "what is the pedagogical merit in this approach," and "am I making sure that the student I'm tutoring isn't just hearing what I'm saying, but is understanding it as well?" I've had a significant amount of time to test out various teaching methods and learn what works for different types of students. I strongly believe that individualized tutoring strategies are needed for each students because there are many different types of learners.
