We are excited to introduce you to another one of our outstanding team members, Greg Faulhaber.
Greg grew up in Erie, Pennsylvania, and he earned his Bachelor’s degree in Math Education from Indiana University of PA. He then went on to earn a Master of Arts in Teaching from Miami University.
At age 7 , Greg started working at his family’s business, Gary’s Superette, which is a small convenience store. After college, he taught math at Winton Woods High School for 6 years, and then moved on to Colerain High School for 4 years. Greg is currently in his 11th year at Cincinnati Country Day School where he teachers math, and is also the Math Department Chair and 10th grade Class Advisor.
How long have you been tutoring with Connections and what subject do you tutor in?
I’ve been tutoring for about a year and a half. I do mostly ACT/SAT prep, with some other high school math courses as well.
What's your favorite thing about tutoring?
My favorite part is the one-on-one with the students. It allows me to pinpoint their weaknesses and work to improve them. Whether it’s a specific subject, topic, pacing for standardized test, or building confidence, working with them individually lets me support their strengths while finding room for improvement.
What is the best book you've read in the last year?
Star Wars: Thrawn, by Timothy Zahn. I’m a real Star Wars geek!
How would you spend a free Saturday afternoon?
That’s a tough one. If it’s the spring, I would most likely be coaching one of my sons’ baseball teams. If it’s summer, I would be on the golf course, and if it’s a lousy weather day, I’d be falling asleep on the couch watching golf.
You've just won an all expenses paid vacation! Where are you going?
I’m playing 18 holes at Augusta National Golf Club! Any chance you can set that up for me?
Thanks, Greg! We’ll see what we can do about that golf outing!
