About Gabbie

I am an exceptional writer and tutor. I have a B.A. from Oberlin College in history and comparative literature, a J.D. from Drexel Law and an M.S. from the University of Pennsylvania in social policy.

I have tutored and taught students both in the classroom and one-on-one settings. I have taught test prep subjects, Russian, Spanish, English grammar and literature, Contract law, Tort law, health insurance issues, and many others. I can make even the most complicated issues seem simple.

I also know exactly what colleges and graduate schools want in a personal essay, so I am an excellent college preparatory planner.

My tutoring style is very laid back and approachable. I prefer to help my students come to their own conclusions rather than feed them answers or focus on memorization of facts. I think it's much more important for students to engage with the material they need to learn. Seeing a person I work with develop before my very eyes is so gratifying, and I love to see students suddenly "click" with the work they need to do.

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.

Russian

I am a native speaker of Russian, and I minored in Russian Literature in college. I also spent four years teaching a college-level Russian conversation and grammar course, and tutored many students privately.
