I went to Harvard (Biology major, graduated cum laude). My day job is in investment banking/consulting, but I've always been passionate about education. So I started teaching and tutoring students on the side. Parents love what I do because I am laser focused on results and helping students achieve their very best academic work. Students love working with me because I take the time to listen and understand where they're coming from and I explain difficult concepts in a simple way.

Thank you again for all your help with preparing for the SAT/ACT and with my college essays!" - L. (Student)

"Hi Gil. Thank you so much for your talented, persistent, and competent tutoring. We will definitely be hoping you are available for our son, Mason. We plan on beginning tutoring for the SAT/ACT in August." -S.C (Parent)
"Hi Gil - I have been meaning to email you, but have been so busy with tennis. Anyway I just wanted to let you know I received a 29 composite score on ACT which I am surprised about. My scores increased one point on each test and two on science. I went from a 29-30 on English, 26-27 math, 31-32 reading, and 26-28 science. Originally I think my target score was about a 29-30, so thank you so much for helping me reach it! Thanks for all your help!!" - JK (Student)
My son's SAT score increased by almost 500 points to a 2240! The help Gilmore provided was invaluable. From the very first lesson, we could see results. His knowledge of the subjects and his approach were excellent. I especially appreciated that although Gil is obviously very intelligent, he neither talked down to or over the head of my son. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend his services!Shari, 9 lessons with Gilmore
Gil was great!
My daughter met with Gil to review for the finals - Gil was great. Not only was he able to fill in the blanks for her but most importantly, helped her go in with confidence and ace the test! Thank you, GilShanna, 1 lesson with Gilmore

This was my first session with Gil, and it went great. I have been struggling with calculus for the past few weeks, but with Gil I think I am becoming better. His way of making you understand the material is excellent!Bader, 20 lessons with Gilmore
High Quality SAT Tutoring
Before coming to Gilmore for help, I was completely frustrated with my score in SAT reading. After working with many different tutors, my score actually began decreasing. However, after just one session with Gilmore, my score improved improved greatly. After a few seasons, I have improved my error margin from about 9-10 errors a section to about 1-2 errors. His systematic yet customized approach to teaching makes it very easy to grasp concepts. I'm incredibly grateful that we found Gilmore to help with tutoring, and feel entirely prepared to take the PSAT and SAT this November. I highly recommend Gilmore to anybody looking for high quality, fruitful tutoring!Ananya, 11 lessons with Gilmore
Thank you so much Gil for your help!! We're looking forward to the next class! The advice on the importance of having an extracurricular activity you're passionate about was very useful!Nancy, 1 lesson with Gilmore
Thoughtful, organized and really wants to help.
Gil is tutoring my son to improve his SAT score. Gil gets very analytical on what the student is lacking, lists out what the student needs to improve on, pays very close attention to his progress and documents and summarizes how he is doing. Gil has been the most engaged and thoughtful tutor I have seen. I know my son will benefit from Gil's teaching, regardless of what happens with the SAT score.Julie, 16 lessons with GilmoreTutor responded:
Thanks Julie! Happy to help. We're going to keep pushing ahead so that he continues to make breakthroughs and build his confidence step-by-step in the Math section. He's working so hard, he should be super proud of his amazing progress.
Very knowledgeable and likable.
Gil's got a great energy and personality, and he really knows the material well. He dove in quickly and was able to help my daughter with her math homework even though the problems spanned many different areas of Algebra I.Shula, 1 lesson with Gilmore
Gilmore had a last minute opening and he was very helpful to me. I will use his services again. I give him an excellent rating. He has an easy was of explaining concepts, and I feel more confident after one session of tutoring. Thanks, Gilmore.Chris , 1 lesson with Gilmore
Very patient and knowledgable
We worked on calculus and he was very knowledgable about each topic we covered. Mr Gilmore appears to care about the people he tutors. I am very grateful that he send me tips and topics on how to prepare for my future exams. Thanks again Mr. Gilmore and we look forward to my future sessions.Armando, 17 lessons with Gilmore
