About Gabby

Hello, my name is Gabby and I am an Educational Specialist with a Master's Degree in Education. I work with students with a wide range of needs from reading to writing to executive functioning. I have worked as a reading specialist for more than six years and I am trained on numerous reading programs and methodologies. Also, I hold a a Certification in Composition which allows me work with students of all grades up through college on writing skills. What I believe I do best is work with students to discover how they best learn and then teach them how to address any given educational material accordingly. Additionally, I teach fundamental study skills, critical thinking and reasoning and executive function management. My strong belief is that a true educator comes to understand the way each individual student learns and then empowers them to utilize these strengths to learn to work effectively. I show students new techniques that they can absolutely incorporate with ease and help them to see that they can accomplish things that at once seemed profoundly daunting to them. I am incredibly passionate and positive, use a lot of creative modalities and games for younger students, and have enjoyed and continue to enjoy a great deal of success with my students.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked for eight years as a reading specialist. A huge number of my students had both ADD and ADHD. As an Educational Specialist I also work with students who have ADD and ADHD.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary school students for the past 16 years. I am a reading specialist and worked with more than 300 students and reading and critical thinking skills at Grant Elementary. As a private tutor I have worked with many elementary students with learning issues on reading, math, critical thinking, executive function management and study skills.

Phonics

I specialize in reading and completed my Master's thesis on the study of phonics and phonemic awareness. I have taught more than 300 students early reading. I also created an original phonics curriculum based on scientifically proven techniques to best teach effective reading remediation.
