About Gina

School can be frustrating when you are not doing well, but school can be fun when you are doing well! Believe in yourself, and do your best in all things big and small. Tutoring made a big difference for me. It can make a big difference for you too! Contact me if you want help doing your best in school!

I am an instructional assistant at Santa Rosa Junior College. I help students prepare for college-level mathematics and English.

I am a very patient person. What I like most about tutoring is helping students realize that they can do something they had thought impossible, like passing their most difficult class.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in German from the University of California, Berkeley, which has one of the top German programs in the country. I also hold a Master of Forestry degree from Yale University.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience tutoring and facilitating classroom lessons for elementary and middle school students. I have privately tutored middle school students in history, social studies, math, and English. I was a facilitator for an afterschool hands-on science class for elementary school students as well as for an outdoor education program for middle school students. Not only am I knowledgeable in elementary subjects, I have a calm demeanor and I teach and listen with patience.

English

Writing and grammar have been my strongest points as a student and young professional. I received high grades in all my college and graduate classes that involved excellent writing skills, such as rhetoric, film theory, philosophy, environmental law, etc. I served as editor and author for Yale's premier graduate student-run publication SAGE Magazine. I have written editorials for local newspapers and blogs. For all of my jobs, I was the pair of eyes people sent their reports and letters to.
