Bio

Hello! My name is Gabriela, and I am a 30 year old experienced math teacher and tutor. I have recently moved to San Diego after several years of teaching math in Korea, Taiwan, and Puerto Rico! I will be obtaining my PhD in Mathematics Education at UCSD! Math will always be my first love, followed by rock climbing and scuba diving. :)

Hello! My name is Gabriela, and I am a 30 year old experienced math teacher and tutor. I have recently moved to San Diego after several years of teaching math in Korea, Taiwan, and Puerto Rico! I will be obtaining my PhD in Mathematics Education at UCSD! Math will always be my first love, followed by rock climbing and scuba diving. :)
I have a Master's degree in Mathematics from Colorado State University with an interdisciplinary specialization in Education. My thesis focused on preparing graduate students for teaching through optimizing professional development programs. I have extensive experience teaching elementary courses through college courses, including IB math, AP Calculus (MY FAVORITE!), and SAT preparation.

I have a deep passion for teaching math, and I promise that I can make math fun and engaging for students of all ages. In my experience, there is a stigma around mathematics which associates this beautiful subject with tedious computations and therefore stress. It's my mission as a math teacher to make math more fun and accessible, especially for those who have created a barrier against it. I believe that I have a unique ability to help students conceptualize math in a way that is meaningful to them. I assure you that I am the most relatable math teacher that a student can have!

Great teacher

Gabriela was very easy to talk to and helped me understand complex calculus topics, and my grade improved drastically after tutoring with her.

Esha, 7 lessons with Gabriela

9th grader loved her! Very effective communicator.

My daughter has struggled and always lacked confidence in math. Algebra was no different, we engaged Gabriela early in the 2nd semester. Our daughter went from a C- to a B is just a few months. She no longer feared new units. She said Gabriela explained topics in a manner that was much more easier to understand. She's great!

SAT Math

Wonderful tutor. Relates great to students and helps with all different levels of math. Reviews material and supports students who are lacking in certain unit areas. Thanks

Christine, 8 lessons with Gabriela

Excellent Tutor

My daughter just started tutoring with Gabriela. And she is building the confidence and skills to tackle harder math problems. She really loves her sessions so much she wished they were longer than an hour. So we are off to an awesome start!

Genius in math while being patient, kind and funny!!

Gabriela has been tutoring me to help me pass my AP Calculus AB exam for the past month. She is really patient ,smart and funny. She always explains the subjects in a way that I understand. I also like that we do a lot of examples of various difficulties to ensure that I fully understand each topic. She was able to explain concepts that I had been struggling for years. She also has a lot of patience because when I first started I knew nothing and I mean nothing of calculus and now (only after 5 lessons) I can understand what is going on in my class and even start doing practice problems online for the AP exam. I like how she does not assume you know previous knowledge on math as she goes over the basics to ensure that you are building a solid foundation in math and not starting mid air. Her teaching method is hands on learning as she does not just lectures about the subject but instead encourages you to always try different problems. She also gives a lot of tips for memorizing different equations and concepts that are very useful. Unlike my school teacher, she is very welcoming as she cares a lot about her students since she always encourages me to ask her for help on problems even outside of our sessions. I also have a very busy schedule and she has always been able to accommodate to that. I would 100% recommend her! Trust me you will not regret it!

Very patient and helpful

Gabriela helped my daughter with SAT word problems and she is very helpful and also gave good feedback after every class .

Suni, 19 lessons with Gabriela

Very patient!

I’m not the greatest at math and so she was super patient with me when it came to explaining concepts when I voiced I didn’t understand the initial approach. Overall she explains math in a very digestible way!

Knowledgable

Gabriela works with my son on pre-cal. Not only does he understand afterward, but she tapes a video session so he can go back and review if necessary. She also sent out notes giving step-by-step instructions for the math problems. Very impressive!
