About Gabriel


Bio

Hi! I’m a junior in the Honors Program at Swarthmore College; I study Biology and Urban Planning and Policy (a major I designed myself!) with a 3.97 GPA. I’ve been helping people learn for a long time: I have five years of tutoring experience across all academic subjects; I’ve worked as a teaching assistant at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC; and I planned and taught a middle school geography club for six years.

Hi! I’m a junior in the Honors Program at Swarthmore College; I study Biology and Urban Planning and Policy (a major I designed myself!) with a 3.97 GPA. I’ve been helping people learn for a long time: I have five years of tutoring experience across all academic subjects; I’ve worked as a teaching assistant at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC; and I planned and taught a middle school geography club for six years.

A little bit more about my academic credentials: I’m a National Merit Scholar, a US Presidential Scholar Semifinalist, a Pinkerton and Lang Science Scholar, a two-time National AP Scholar with Distinction, and a two-time New York State champion in the National Geographic Bee. I graduated cum laude from the Collegiate School, a prestigious independent high school in New York (with a 3.97 GPA); as for standardized testing, I received a perfect 36 and a perfect raw score on every section of the ACT (that is, I answered every question on the exam correctly). Outside of tutoring, I currently work in a neurobiology lab, where I research the dynamics of spatial memory formation in the hippocampus. I’ve also worked extensively in politics, including as a US Senate Page, an extern for a state Attorney General, and on a political campaign.

As mentioned above, I have five years of tutoring experience; my private tutoring students consistently report better grades.

Please reach out to schedule a session! I’d love to meet you and get the chance to work with you.

I'm conversationally fluent in Spanish--I studied the language for eight years, including in literature courses at the college level, and I lived in Spain for a summer. I'd love to help you develop your written and spoken fluency, work on grammar and pronunciation, and/or build vocabulary.

When it comes to my own writing, I've won national essay contests, ghostwritten for elected officials, and crafted hundreds of written assignments that consistently get top grades at one of the hardest schools in the country. I've also copywritten and edited professionally as a freelancer, and I've been working with students on their writing for five years.

I won New York State's National Geographic Bee in 2013 and 2014, and made it to the Qualifying Tiebreaker round at Nationals. This placed me in the top 20 students out of more than 4 million students nationwide. While myself a student, I also designed geography curricula that I taught for six years to classes consisting of as many as 30-40 5th-8th grade students at my school. I also taught myself the AP Human Geography curriculum my sophomore year of high school, receiving a perfect 5 on the exam without having taken the class. Finally, my college coursework in Urban Planning and Policy is intimately related to geographic issues.
