About this tutor

I have been tutoring all levels of mathematics and Spanish since 2010, and tutor lower-level math in Spanish.

I use my personal experience overcoming math struggles to make learning math simple. Students respond very well once they have this understanding, which makes them confident when taking tests.

I have been tutoring standardized test prep since 2011. I teach test-taking strategies, which include time management and choosing which questions to answer first, in order to improve test accuracy, and reduce anxiety. While at the University of Minnesota, I studied short- and long-term memory functions, and how they are used to learn and remember math concepts.

I hold bachelor's degrees in Mathematics and Spanish from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.

Please contact me for help!

Sincerely, Gabriela G.

I enjoy teaching students, helping their grades improve, and watching them achieve their goals. I find it really rewarding to see a student's excitement when he/she understands a concept for the first time. That's when they want to learn more, and I know I made a difference in their life.

    Gabriela was really able to engage my 17 year old son in prepping for the ACT. She covered all areas with strategies and also specific help in topics he needed extra time with. I would strongly recommend her to anyone considering a tutor!
