About Gina

Ever since I was little I knew I wanted to be a teacher. With hard work and passion that dream came true. I obtained my BA and my MA in History. In addition, I am also certified in Social Studies for grades 7-12. Eventually, I would like to pursue my doctorate in History.

I have been teaching for over 6 years and it has been a great experience watching my students excel in their studies. My first batch of students have begun to enroll in college and it is truly exciting to see how successful they have become. In addition to teaching, I have been tutoring for many years. During these tutoring sessions, I make an effort to break down difficult concepts to help students not feel so overwhelmed. My objective is to ensure that after each session the student has made progress toward an attainable goal.

I have taught various levels of English during my teaching career. I specialize in tutoring English with a concentration on reading comprehension, vocabulary, public speaking, and writing. To obtain success, I use various graphic organizers and technology to aid in learning.

I am a true History nerd! My area of concentration is centered around American History. Since I am truly passionate, I try to share my excitement of History by using various modes of technology from short video clips and pictures in order to pique students interest. I also like using various graphic organizers from timelines to lap books in order to connect ideas and concepts.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your success!

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.

English

I taught middle and high school English for many years. In addition, many of my students have won numerous writing contests and some have even been published in national publications for their creative works. I myself enjoy writing, and I try to instill that passion in all of my students.

Literature

I have taught numerous classes of varying levels of literature. I am highly knowledgeable in the various skills required to write well rounded thesis statements and summaries. Many of my students have been highly successful in high school and college exams due to my guidance.

Social Studies

I have a B.A and M.A. in History. Also, I am currently certified in CT to teach 7-12 Social Studies. I have taught and tutored various levels of History over the years. I am very knowledgable and passionate in the subject.

Writing

I have a BA and MA in History, both required lengthy thesis papers, which honed my skills of research, writing, formatting, citing, and editing. I have taught numerous writing classes and am enthusiastic about the art of writing. I have many different strategies that can be shaped to help the writer gain confidence in their ability.
