About Gabriel

I have eight years of experience teaching physical sciences and mathematics in the classroom in addition to years of tutoring experience. I have recently returned to the San Francisco Bay Area after graduate studies and am interested in giving some lessons to high school and undergraduate level students in need of assistance. I have taught all levels of high school physics from Conceptual up through AP Physics (B and C courses) for 7 years. One of my AP classes even had a 100% pass rate. I am also comfortable teaching classical physics at the undergraduate level. I have 2 years of experience teaching high school Chemistry and 4 years teaching high school math from Algebra 1 though Calculus.

I am a very patient and generous tutor. I set reasonable and achievable goals with students and work towards greater understanding of concepts and problem solving techniques. My goal is to make you or your student self sufficient by breaking down the barriers to full comprehension.

I have flexible rates and can meet students anywhere reasonably accessible by public transit.

Please respond to this posting with inquiries or to set up an appointment.

First lesson review — My son felt very good by the end of the first session. He feels like he understood what he needed to complete his homework for tomorrow and that Gabriel will be able to help him much more in the future. Unfortunately I was not able to stay for the session so I can only report what my son told me later in the evening. Thank you Gabriel! ...
