About Gabriela

I tutor Spanish, ESL and TOEFL, and subjects related to grammar, reading, and writing.

SPANISH:
If asked to describe me, the first thing that people who know who me would say is that I love Spanish! I have a strong passion for the Spanish language and helping others learn it. For me, the classroom was never enough -- I had to spend my time listening to music, watching movies, and reading books all in Spanish. I also love learning about the various cultures across Spanish-speaking countries. My passion has led me to Mexico on a study abroad program, has given me a perfect score on my Spanish SAT subject test, and has landed me in a senior-level class my freshman year at college. Yes, I'm young, but my professors can back me up when I say that I know Spanish!

Spanish has become a huge part of who I am and I love helping others succeed in the language. For years I have helped my peers and something that I have heard several times is "Without you, I would be failing this class!" Having gone through the learning process myself, I have a great deal of patience and understanding and know how to explain things clearly. I also have experience teaching and tutoring English as a Second Language and am considering becoming a Spanish professor in the future. I can assure you that I can help you get to where you want to be with Spanish!


ESL/TOEFL:
I have experience as a classroom assistant for the Beginning ESL level and as a co-instructor for the Advanced ESL level. I also have experiencing teaching ESL to workers at my university, as well as informal tutoring/teaching to friends and family members on a daily basis.


GRAMMAR, READING, WRITING, PROOFREADING:
I received perfect or near-perfect scores on ACT and SAT reading/writing sections. In high school I took IB English classes, giving me strong reading comprehension, writing, and analytical skills.

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.

Proofreading

I study sociology, which is a reading and writing intensive subject. Through this, I have developed strong writing skills in terms of organization, structure, and grammar.

Spanish

I learned Spanish in school, meaning I have a full understanding of grammatical rules and know what it is like to learn Spanish as a second language. Upon entering Tufts University as a freshman, I placed out of the language requirement with my Spanish. I spent my junior year studying abroad in Ecuador and Mexico, and now as a senior I am a Spanish tutor at Tufts University.

Writing

I study sociology, which is a reading and writing intensive subject. Through this, I have developed strong writing skills in terms of organization, structure, and grammar.
