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
Graciele is a fantastic tutor. She really cares if I learn the material or not. She's very patient and willing to explain things to me in ways that I can understand. She was able to teach me all of math 1010 in a few sessions where my teach had all semester and I didn't learn anything. Having her help me to understand the material made the new distance learning so much easier.Randy, 5 lessons with Graciele
Graciele is excellent!!! We have done several lessons with her. She is very clear in her explanations. I would highly recommend her to anyone that has a need to strengthen an area.Diana, 6 lessons with Graciele
The best AP Calculus tutor that you will ever find
Graciele is on a whole other level compared to other tutors. My son used her throughout the summer to prepare for his AP calculus class. She so incredibly engaged, knowledgeable, and organized that my son actually looked forward to his sessions with her. She uses a whiteboard during the session and sends a copy of the notes after each session, which were incredibly useful during the school year. Do not choose any other tutor for calculus even if they are cheaper. She is worth her hourly rate times ten.Amit, 40 lessons with Graciele
Gracie is a wonderful tutor! She reviewed a lot of basic arithmetic. She also gave a lot of good notes and quick tips from memory . Excellent l review session. I rate her as an A+Stacy, 2 lessons with Graciele
One of the best tutors I've ever had.
Graciele was amazing. She helped me with a college geometry course and was able to explain everything in such an easy manner. She is truly one of a kind. I have met very very few tutors that dedicate their time and love what they do like Graciele. Thank you Graciele!Mari, 3 lessons with Graciele
Kind and sweet lady
meeting Graciele was a blessing. She has very nice handwriting, she takes great notes and breaks down complex problems in a very detailed way that makes it easy to understand. I have tried several math tutors in Wyzant and she is definitely one of my favorites. She is a very sweet lady and genuinely cares about her students and wishes to see them succeed. She goes out of her way to adjust her schedule to fit the student's needs. Very glad I found her.Eddie, 3 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, 78 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, 45 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
