About Gabrielle

I am currently a senior/4th year student at the University of Pittsburgh. I tutor in Japanese at the University and I have been tutoring in various subjects since I was 12. I am also a Teaching Assistant for Freshman Programs, a class designed to help freshman get acquainted with the many programs and services the university has to offer as well as a way of building a community among the students during their first semester.

I enjoy helping students succeed and become the best students that they can be.

Math is a subject that has always been dear to my heart and I have tutored in very levels of math since I was 12, but Algebra 1 is my favorite kind of math.

I have completed all levels of Japanese at the University. I am familiar with and have used many Japanese textbooks such as Genki, Japanese the Spoken Language, Japanese for Busy People, and Yokoso. In addition, I work as a Japanese tutor for the Japanese department and I have been for the last two years.

I am a native speaker of English and I also worked for an English Language Institute for two years. I also work as a translator, so my proofreading and grammar skills are constantly being honed in two or more languages.

I love tutoring and my schedule is very flexible. I am willing to tutor online or in person and also for multiple subjects.

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.

Classics

I am currently double majoring in Classics and Japanese at the University of Pittsburgh. I have taken a variety of Classics courses including Greek History, Roman Civilization, Ancient Greek, Gender in the Ancient Mediterranean, Greek Tragedy (theater course), and Greek Mythology. I am familiar with and have studied ancient texts such as the Homeric Hymns, the Aeneid of Virgil, the Iliad and Odyssey, and Ovid's Metamorphoses. I am able to tutor in Classical literature, theater, and history.

Study Skills

I am currently an undergraduate student majoring in Japanese and Classics. Japanese is the most difficult language for native English speakers such as myself to learn, so my study skills and habits must be superb to keep up with the complexity of my major. Prior to attending college, I went to a two-year college prep boarding school in Muncie, IN. This boarding school is one of the best schools in not only Indiana, but also in the US. At boarding school, my study skills improved tremendously because of the rigorous curriculum. I can offer students a variety of tips on how to study for specific subjects and how to develop good study habits. I would also be able to provide advice on note-taking techniques.
