About Giancarlo

I am a Stanford University graduate (B.A.) who has been tutoring math and the SAT/ACT for the past 3.5 years. I was a National Merit Scholarship finalist, an AP Scholar with Distinction and my high school valedictorian. I am fantastically interested in every topic under the sun due to my belief that all learning is interconnected.

I have worked both for tutoring companies and for myself. My philosophy values smart work, not hard work. I don't assign busy work. Everything my students do is designed with a clear goal in mind. However, it is much less work to learn something well the first time than it is to re-learn it. Thus, all work ought to be thorough, yet as minimal as possible.

Regarding the subjects I tutor, in particular, I specialize in test preparation (ACT/SAT). I tutor all sections of the test, and I have never had a student who has failed to improve over their baseline scores (nor have I had any that have come close to failing).

I understand that we all have time constraints and that sometimes things are forgotten. I thus ask only twelve hours to cancel. Should my student need to cancel, I am more than happy to make up the class.

I have been tutoring math, the SAT, and the ACT professionally for the past 3+ years to students of all backgrounds and math aptitude. I pride myself on my patience and on the success of my math students.

I am fully bilingual in both English and Spanish. I come from a household of Spanish teachers, so, in many ways, teaching Spanish was destined. In order to understand how better to teach foreign language learners, I have studied Linguistics (the study of language) and many other languages (Latin, Ancient Greek, and German chief among them).

I realize that it is close to impossible for any one profile to provide all the information one could want in a tutor, so please contact me with any questions you may have! It would be my pleasure to answer them.
