About Gail


Bio

In my over twenty years of teaching, I have found that all students can succeed if they believe they can succeed and if they want to. My role as a teacher is to "sell" this concept to my students, as members of a class and as individuals. I have been successful at this most important sales job. My experience includes teaching students in urban, suburban, magnet, private, and public schools; teaching AP level, honors level, college prep level, and conceptual level courses; and...

In my over twenty years of teaching, I have found that all students can succeed if they believe they can succeed and if they want to. My role as a teacher is to "sell" this concept to my students, as members of a class and as individuals. I have been successful at this most important sales job. My experience includes teaching students in urban, suburban, magnet, private, and public schools; teaching AP level, honors level, college prep level, and conceptual level courses; and teaching students with a variety of learning styles.

I know that students learn by doing, not by listening. My tutoring sessions are guided by "doing", with explanations and encouragement as needed. My goal in all of my teaching and tutoring is to eliminate the students' need for me. This does not always happen, but the students do become more confident, self-sufficient, and successful over time .This confidence extends into everything they do, not just their math or science courses.

Teaches very well and is very nice!

My daughter loves working with Gail. Gail explains everything so clearly and is also a very nice person. My daughter would highly recommend Gail!

Too Long

Gail was somewhat helpful and provided some strategies but she stayed much longer than I expected. I should have spoken up after the hour but I let her continue and ended up being charged for 2.5 hours when I only really wanted one hour. I also feel she should have asked if I wanted her to stay longer and pay for more than one hour.

Tutor responded:

There was a lack of communication. I was told to work with her wonderful daughter and her friend on physics concepts. Normally I would work 1.5 hours with a new student, but with 2 students, it always takes longer. (I did not charge for the second student.)

Very Patient!

Gail is a very patient and kind individual and is providing my daughter with a renewed interest in algebra. We are very pleased with her tutoring.

Professional, patient and highly knowledgeable

Gail was very professional and accessible. She brought both a wealth of knowledge and teaching experience in the area of Math and Science which translated into a very beneficial tutoring experience. We would definitely work with her again!
