5-Star General Math/Calculus Teacher *****
As a child growing up in Brazil, Graciele witnessed how her mother, a biology teacher, successfully helped many students. This inspired Graciele to live by her example from an early age. During college, she was selected to tutor her classmates in Calculus 1-3, Thermodynamics, and Analytical Chemistry. In 2007, she became a teacher at a renowned institute teaching math to classes as large as 120 students. She received her Bachelor of Engineering in 2011 and has since been working in the U.S....

OUTSTANDINGLY SUPERB AND EXCEPTIONAL TUTOR
Graciele is a blessing. For parents out there, let me set the stage: it was a Friday, after a long school day, raining and cold. I had two hungry kids who just wanted to get home and not open a book at least until food had been consumed. Instead, I had made back-to-back sessions with Graciele to do: MATH. The fact that both kids finished with a smile on their faces and their positive and enthusiastic feedback (separately given) was immediate as to a definite yes to more lessons with Graciele, is testament to her abilities. Graciele excels as a tutor; she clearly is knowledgeable and has command of the concepts but just as important, Graciele has the ability to convey her knowledge in a way that the student wants to come back for more learning. Anyone can be an expert on a subject matter, but if they do not know how to share their skills, it is of no use to the student. I am delighted Graciele is tutoring my children.D, 20 lessons with Graciele
BEST Math Tutor!!
The first time Graciele worked with our 5th grade daughter, we could tell there was a difference in her style and teaching. During that first lesson, Graciele explored several different learning styles until she figured out what worked best for our daughter and then off they went! Graciele is so knowledgeable and patient with students. She makes sure that the material is understood; for example, after working through a solution, she will go back to the top and work through it again/makes sure it resonates. Besides being an excellent tutor, Graciele is a lovely person and our daughter absolutely adores working with her. She achieved her first exceeds in math after just a few months with Graciele. Our daughter actually looks forward to doing math now and having her tutoring lessons. The 1:1 time gives her the chance to ask questions and feel confident about the material. Before her last test, she even asked for a few extra lessons with Graciele and was super prepared and ready. And Graciele was kind enough to make the extra time for her. She is so invested in her students and the partnership. My husband once said Graciele is worth every penny and our daughter and I couldn’t agree more!Debi, 60 lessons with Graciele
Incredibly sweet and patient tutor.
Before I met Graciele I was worried that I was never going to understand math but after she taught me, I finally felt that I was improving and understanding the fundamental concepts of math. She has been very patient with me and has explained and broken down math concepts so I could have a full understanding of rules in math. She has given me practice problems and has actually made math fun for me! So far I’m very happy with my experience and cannot wait to keep learning! :)Liggia, 22 lessons with Graciele
A Truly Wonderful Tutor
Working with Graciele was a rewarding and stress-free experience for me. As a college graduate looking to retake the GRE, I was unsure about finding a competent tutor that would help me prepare for the math section almost four years after my most recent math class. I've long struggled with math and needed someone who was patient but could cover a lot of ground in the short (2-month) period that I had. I was also on a tight budget, and could not meet more than once a week for an hour. Graciele proved to be a dream-come-true in all these regards. She was easy to schedule with over text and could be reached at most hours of the day or night. Her meeting times were flexible, and I was able to switch our scheduled time each week since I lived nearby. That said, while I met with her in her building each week, she was very accommodating and routinely met with other students both in DC and online around the country. She spoke about some of her other clients' needs, and would routinely meet with people long into the night (past 1 am)! Personally, Graciele was very compassionate and understanding. She seems to genuinely care about all her clients, and I like to think we developed a wonderful working relationship. Ultimately the training helped, as she developed a plan to cover all the material and then broke it down by category. She does much of her teaching over a tablet computer, which means all your lessons and work are easily accessible and saved online. In the end, my score increased more than 10 points and put me well within the range of my score goal. I greatly recommend Graciele no matter where she is teaching!Jordan, 12 lessons with Graciele
Calculus Single Variable
Graciele was extremely helpful! She clearly and patiently taught each concept and did so in a way that was easy to follow! She also gave a digital copy of the lesson's notes which will help significantly in studying and reviewing afterwards!Stephanie, 1 lesson with Graciele
Absolutely Wonderful Tutor
I was having a lot of trouble in my Calculus 1 class, to the point where I was genuinely concerned that I might fail the entire course. I searched on Wyzant to find a tutor that would be able to online lessons. Graciele went through all of my previous exams with me and thoroughly explained any parts I didn't understand. My professor tended to go fast in class so I would have trouble keeping up with her and understanding the concepts. After my lesson I felt like I was more than capable of passing my final and my class. I was so happy when I received my final grades, I got my highest score on any Calculus exam that I've ever taken and I passed my class! If you were in the position that I was in prior to finals week, Gra's tutoring is worth every penny. I don't know how to put it into words how much I appreciate her time with helping me pass my class.Samantha, 1 lesson with Graciele
Energetic and Engaging
Graciele is an excellent tutor. She has provided my daughter with lessons that have not only raised her pre algebra grade significantly but provided her with confidence in the material. My daughter really understands the material after the lessons with Graciele. Graciele is friendly, patient and engaging, my daughter looks forward to her lessons.Heather , 67 lessons with Graciele
Excellent calculus tutor
After one session with Graciele I understood a concept that I had not understood for a month of class. She is able to explain concepts in ways that make sense to me in AP Calc. Working with her has improved all of my test grades substantially. I highly recommend her!!Natasha, 10 lessons with Graciele
GO NO FURTHER!
It was amazing to be taught so efficiently, from the notes to the recordings that were provided, I could not recommend more highly! The investment gets the return, Graciele is there for you every step that you take in your learning journey. Do not hesitate!James, 7 lessons with Graciele
The Ability to Connect with My Child
My son was so shy with the idea of using a tutor to assist him. It took me 2 years to convince him to accept the help, he is very prideful, and strong willed. He met with Graciele, and the next day he tests score was 30% higher than his average test scores in the last year. Graciele made a huge impact with one lesson. He is now certain he can use the help. Thank you Graciele for your positive energy, and clear communication!Laura, 3 lessons with Graciele
