About Gabriel

I have loved learning about science since I was a kid. When friends needed help with math, chemistry, or physics, I'm who would happily help them out. After graduating from the University of Miami started tutoring professionally.

At London Achievement Processes I worked as a clinical tutor with students that had problems reading. There I took an analytical approach to helping students that struggled with the process of reading or comprehending the material they read. Through opened dialogue with my students, I would understood their perspective on a confusing topic. Then with guiding questions I would lead them to understanding the correct answer.

I then started working with student athletes at the Academic Services for Student Athletes a the University of Central Florida as a strategic tutor. There I would help the student athletes with science and mathematics courses. I also would assist them in becoming more efficient students. I taught them study habits, organization skills, and tips to get the most out of their study time.

I have also worked at other private academic tutoring companies focusing on high school and university level science and math. I am proud to say that I have helped a diverse range of students: students that needed extra help to keep up, high level students taking AP and IB courses, and many in between.

During my time at the University of Miami I was part of two academic programs: the Howard Hughes Institute Undergraduate Research Program and the Program for Integrated Science and Mathematics. I took high level courses and completed a research project which I used to write an honors thesis. I am happy to say that I graduated with a Bachelor's in Science majoring in Biology and Microbiology/Immunology with a minor in Chemistry.
I have also taken post-bachelor courses at the University of Central Florida to continue learning more sciences.

As a science and math tutor, I understand that not everyone feels as passionately as I do about these subjects. That is why I strive to provide lessons that are filled with visuals, examples, and practical concept overviews. I make sure to keep my students engaged in the lesson by asking them questions and relating concepts to their interests.

I look forward to taking on new students so they can achieve their academic goals and gain a better appreciation of science and math.

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.

Chemistry

At the University of Miami I graduated with a minor in chemistry. I found that the best way to do well in chemistry is by getting a thorough understanding of concepts, studying examples, and solving practice problems.
I have worked with students taking Chemistry in high school, Valencia College, and the University of Central Florida. I have noticed that sometimes professors can't reach every student when it comes to teaching chemistry. That is why I like to set up my tutoring sessions with a concept review at the start. I make sure to use visuals by using a white board to draw out examples and work practice problems.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken Organic Chemistry I and Organic chemistry II at the University of Central Florida. For both I have received straight A's. As a tutor for the Academic Services for Student Athletes for the University of Central Florida, I was approved to tutor organic chemistry.

Physics

During college I have taken college physics (Algebra based) and university physics (calculus based). This lets me view problems from different math perspectives. Over the last three years I have taught students in university level physics and high school level ranging from regular to honors to AP Physics. All of that experience working with different classes has shown me what are the most important concepts to understand for comprehension and testing purposes.
My background teaching different math courses also gives me the advantage. Because physics is so math heavy, I can help students that are not so confident in their math abilities.

He taught me irregular electron configuration. The 6 alkene reactions and their mechanisms. Also the 4 rearrangements of Alkenes involving acids. I would recommend him to all my friends
