About Gil

I can help you! I have had great success tutoring students for over ten years. I specialize in chemistry and math, and have written numerous practice tests in SAT Chemistry and ACT science and math for major tutoring agencies. My students have ranged from AP and Honors Chemistry at NYC's elite private and public schools (Stuyvesant, Horace Mann, Columbia Prep, Brearley, many others) to SAT/ACT students of all levels and abilities, to middle school algebra students, to 3rd grade basic science students. The one fact these students all have in common is that they have all enjoyed significant grade or score improvements. As one student summarized: "Before Gil, C+. After Gil, A-! Thank you!!!" I have recently been tutoring with Bespoke Education, one of NYC's premiere tutoring agencies, and am looking to help more students--and I can help you!

I received a Master's from Columbia University where I was awarded their prestigious teaching award, The Jacob Millman Prize for Excellence in Teaching. I graduated from Wesleyan University with a degree in Chemistry where I tutored undergraduates in chemistry and high school students in math. I have taught engineering course at New York City Technical College. I have been a Teaching Assistant at Columbia University and have tutored privately and with major NYC tutoring agencies for over ten years.

But my educational background and expert knowledge of the material is not what is truly important -- what is vital is that through my years of teaching and tutoring I have realized that each student is unique and learns differently, has different strengths and weaknesses, and different ways that they learn. I can quickly determine the best way to help YOU!

I am extremely patient and encouraging (thanks to raising my seven year old son) and will try to make every session as comfortable and enjoyable as possible while making sure your knowledge and mastery of the subject improves. I try to provide real-world examples of topics whenever possible to make things both more fun and relevant.

I am new to WyzAnt, and look forward to using my skills and experience that I have gained from helping students for over ten years to help you! Let me help you with whatever is giving you trouble and help give you those "A-ha!" moments, when something that previously made no sense suddenly becomes clear.

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.
