Bible Studies

I am a certified English teacher with over 20 years in tutoring.
My religious background is Messianic-Jewish.

I was baptised Greek-Orthodox Christian in Europe (Romania), and I also converted to Judaism in 2008 in the United States based on my father's family history and my Biblical convictions. My Conservative Jewish formal education lasted 2 years and was completed at the Adas Israel Synagogue in Washington D.C. under the supervision of several rabbis who provided Biblical history lessons for 1 year. Subsequently, I studied in New York City, and have continued to research Orthodox Christian (and other Christian sources) as my personal interest. In college in Europe I studied Latin, and at the synagogue I studied Biblical Hebrew, and I am particularly versed in the Old Testament, The New Testament, and the Torah, as well as in mythologies and other religions, due to my personal interest in spirituality. I base all my information exclusively on classical authors and acknowledged Biblical exegeses.

As a tutor of European languages and cultures, I have had many Christian students here in Texas, and we have had extensive interesting conversations on Biblical topics. My American students can benefit from the Biblical knowledge I have acquired in my years of tutoring English, Italian / French cultures, and they can also learn from my European Studies and Messianic-Jewish knowledge and experience.

I view the religious culture of the United States as uniquely pro-Biblical and wise, in that it has allowed the merging of the Christian and the Jewish traditions promoting their common root for a strengthening of Abrahamic spirituality, which is the only path, I believe, towards the healing and regeneration of the contemporary world. I would look forward to acquiring this qualification in order to support my students in their Biblical goals.

Thank you.
Gabriela A.

Painting

Painting has been my long-time hobby ever since I was a child. Though I chose a career in literature and arts, I have continued to paint, and in the United States I received formal training in classical painting at the National Academy of Art in New York City (2008, Prof. Sam Adoquei) and took private classes with surrealist painter Dave Kramer in Dallas (through 2009). Prior to that, I studied with various local painters in Italy where I resided for many years. I specialize particularly in portraits and still nature, oil on canvas, various styles. I have also tutored private students in European arts, from Renaissance to modern painting and drawing, as my professional qualifications are European Studies (MA) and French/Italian/cultures (BA). Some of my students have opted for in-depth study of Italian and French painters with adjacent Italian/French languages/cultures study, and my arts classes may include references from Italian and French painting schools. I would be happy to provide samples of my painting and drawing to you during a free consultation including a test. You will also find that my qualifications/experience as a professional teacher helps (as much as artistic talent does) in this tutoring process.

Public Speaking

I am a certified English teacher with additional college degrees in Philology and European Studies. My bachelor and master degrees covered public-speaking-sensitive subjects such as: rhetoric, diplomacy/international affairs, psychological analysis, literary writing, sophisticated vocabulary, cultural psychology, and international protocol / manners. Having worked for over 10 years also as a conference interpreter (English to other languages), I am well-versed in public speaking and have many real-life lecture stories to refer to in my explanations to students. Additionally I worked as a fiction translator (English novels by Phillip Roth, Anita Brookner, Janet Dailey), a job that involved much versatility in using the correct speech nuances of diverse action characters.
I have been tutoring for over 20 years in the United States and Europe and my language and culture courses have usually covered the above topics in order to prepare my students in a well-rounded manner for their international careers or global interactions. My method has always been this:
1. learn the student's goal, style and knowledge gaps, and tailor a personal curriculum for him/her
2. use diction sources (American/ British TV speeches, documentaries, films, etc) to explain the ways to eliminate errors
3. create individual scenarios involving public speaking: from everyday conversational situations up to professional or complex presentations in front of audiences
4. besides the standard language, I include diverse dialectal sources to ensure the student will be familiar with his/her interlocutors on all grounds and will be able to address them effectively
Below are some reviews posted by my students on Wyzant, my private website, Linkedin, and language-school-teachers.com:

“Excellent. I had couple of sessions with her for pronunciation improvement and accent reduction. She provided excellent feedback and instructions on how to improve along with some of the quick techniques. I would recommend her to anybody looking into this area or improving grammar or overall English.”

Yogesh, India
English/ESL Intensive 4-hour Program, 2013

“Once upon a time I got angry with myself and decided to put an end to my ignorance in English. I've already been settled in Dallas for five years and couldn't string two words together in English. Both my husband and I went online and got absorbed in looking for a teacher. Our choice was Gabriela Anderson; we didn't know why her ad attracted us.
For six months I took English lessons with Gabriela. Initially, I must admit, I was so scared of English that I nearly fainted whenever I heard it. Now all that is in the past. I can express myself maybe not as well as I would like to but pretty well, thanks to what Gabriela has taught me.
I've met not only a teacher but an intelligent responsible and good-natured person.
Thanks to Gabriela my outlook was widened, and I learnt a lot about American culture, history, and people. Together we listened to TV news and read books, and I learnt much that was new to me about American movies, writers, famous singers, actors, etc.
And I have to say that my life became much more interesting because my English is now fairly good. Thank you once again, Gabriela!

Natasha, Englneer (retired), Lithuania
English/ESL Immersion Program 2013

“Gabriela is Good — As per our son's interest, we have started the English reading. Gabriela is an excellent orator and good reader, am able to see some improvement in my son reading.”
Devi for son Vaibhav (India)
ESL 4h Immersion Program, 2013

“My friend and I decided to take classes to improve our American-English skills. We work in a hospital, it was very important for us to speak well. The program was very helpful and Gabriela provided many pronunciation lessons and common vocabulary and expressions. We felt it was very helpful to learn from an English teacher who had studied English as a 2nd language many years ago because she knew how to explain the language to us and to relate to our learning experience. We did many exercises that included American TV, regular conversation, presentations, and even regional dialects and slang as part of our phonetics lessons. We have been very satisfied with this program therefore we are continuing studying for advanced level We recommend it to all students interested in American-English.”

Reading

I have been tutoring English Reading to students since 1988. I am a European tutor trained in British English, and I have been living in the United States (as a U.S. citizen) for the past 17 years. This combination of backgrounds and many years of formal training at the best universities have allowed me to acquire an articulate intellectual American-English diction that receives praises on a daily basis. Above all, Reading is not about linguistic accents, but about one's ability to comprehend complex texts and grammatical structures and to pronounce/employ sophisticated words correctly. My 25-year experience has covered translation of American novels, translation of management and marketing books for a British university, conference/simultaneous interpreting, as well as constant tutoring to students and adults. I am certified in Reading, SAT ACT Public Speaking, Vocabulary, Writing/ Creative Writing, Child psychology, foreign languages, philology and business/international affairs

SAT Reading

I have been tutoring English SAT Reading to students since 2002. I am a European tutor trained in American English and in British English, and I have been living in the United States (as a U.S. citizen) for the past 17 years. This combination of backgrounds and many years of formal training at the best universities have allowed me to acquire an articulate intellectual American-English diction that receives praises on a daily basis. Above all, Reading is not about linguistic accents, but about one's ability to comprehend complex texts and grammatical structures and to pronounce/employ sophisticated words correctly. Reading Comprehension is one of the most difficult SAT subjects, and I have promoted my students by training them based on SAT manuals as well as classical and contemporary literature. Choosing the most challenging materials and stimulating the student's ability to perceive diverse dialects are also important aspects in SAT/ACT training (I use American TV and, if needed, British TV sources). My 25-year experience has covered translation of American novels, translation of management and marketing books for a British university, American English conference/simultaneous interpreting, as well as constant tutoring to students and adults. I am certified in SAT Reading, ACT, Public Speaking, Vocabulary, Writing/ Creative Writing, Child psychology, foreign languages, philology, and business/international affairs.

SAT Writing

I have been tutoring English SAT Writing to students since 2009. I am a European tutor trained in British English, and I have been living in the United States (as a U.S. citizen) for the past 17 years. Writing is a very complex skill that, in fact, differs from one culture to another. Writing well implies one's familiarity with diverse and complex texts and grammatical structures; on a higher level, such as literary writing, it also requires philological training (philology= "love of words") which is a European traditional method less known in the United States. I have provided both traditional SAT training and SAT philological training (which includes rhetoric, grammatical and psychological analysis, creative writing) to my SAT students with excellent results. My 25-year experience has covered writing articles, translation of American novels, translation of management and marketing books for a British university, American English conference/simultaneous interpreting, as well as constant tutoring to students and adults. I am certified in SAT Writing, Reading, ACT, Public Speaking, Vocabulary, Creative Writing, Child psychology, foreign languages, philology and business/international affairs.
