About Gabriel

Over the years, I have taught Math, Science and Spanish to children and adults who were facing various challenges with their respective subjects. Some were friends whom I taught without a charge, whereas others were individuals who paid to learn their assigned material. I discovered that people can and are more willing to learn when they can see the material from the perspective of its connection to the foundational concepts and its applications to the real world. I call this An Insight Perspective. I can give this perspective because I have worked as an engineer, a scientist and a college professor. Currently, I work as researcher in biotechnology to find ways to treat challenging waste waters.

I am also a native Spanish speaker and have helped native English speakers with difficult-to-teach idiosyncrasies of the Spanish language to overcome those challenges and successfully become certified to teach Spanish. At some point in my life, I worked as a language instructor in a language institute that attracted educated individuals who were interested in learning Spanish for technical applications. Skills related to day-to-day uses of the Spanish language is something I enjoy sharing with many people as we discuss the various ways in which a language can bring to life the human thought.

I look forward to helping you achieve your goals.

Excellent to work with and knows his stuff

Gabriel is a pleasure to work with. He has been willing to jump in immediately and help my son understand Statistics. My son was doing horrible in this class and needed someone to push him to his full potential. My son was going through the motions but not being to apply the logic needed to do well in this class. Gabriel calls him out when necessary and makes him think which he doesn't always
