About Gabrielle

Hi! I am a fully credentialed high school teacher (IA, CA), specializing in various subjects (AP US History, AP Human Geography, AP Micro and Macroeconomics). I have a MA Secondary Education from the University of Iowa. I have taught in public schools for 8+ years (Iowa City, Des Moines Van Nuys) and tutored for the last 4 years. I have over 150+ hours in professional development in instruction and curriculum development based on the Common Core. I can help students in any History subject, those learning English (ELL/ESL), Writing/Reading, Language Arts, or preparing for the SAT and ACT : ) I can also help you with assignments, essays, and research papers. * Professional and former tutoring references are available upon request. *

My students appreciate my strong content knowledge and ability to make the material fun (easier to remember : ) As a tutor, I offer a variety of resources for students to access more info and exercises in their subject. I like to use practice tests to help identify areas of weakness and strength. As a certified AP teacher (College Board), I am trained to teach proper test skills and strategies. The process of learning how to test can be enjoyable, once you are confident in your understanding of the test content and format. My greatest asset as a tutor is the ability to identify the needs of each individual learner and to provide acute instruction.

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.

Study Skills

I have a MA in Education from the University of Iowa ('04). I have taught at the high school level since. This will be my 8th successful year teaching. As an AP (Advanced Placement) teacher, I have undergone much training in order to help students develop the study skills necessary to learn information and master concepts. I currently work in Des Moines public schools, with a large population of ELL students, and many students who struggle with basic organization and study habits. I will begin AVID training this summer, which is specific to teaching study skills.
