About Gilbert

I graduated in May 2016 with a masters degree in Petroleum Engineering from Texas Tech University. Maths in general is my favorite subject and I believe I have the right way of making anyone understand it. I teach my colleagues and family members mostly but this time I have extended it to anyone. What I like about teaching is the fact that I can share with people what I know, and this helps me to retain my knowledge on a particular subject.

I prefer to teach individuals because it gives them the opportunity to receive all the attention. I get to know what they are really struggling with so that I can direct the lessons to match their struggles using simple analogies and scenarios. I understand that people who need tutoring have some needs and I such I approach any question they have as seriously as possible. I create a conducive learning environment and I am always patient with my students. My approach is teaching is very simple. I initially evaluate my student to ensure that they have the necessary foundation. From here, I can build on the foundation to enable them fully understand their areas of struggle.

I have tutored all aspects of maths including algebra, trigonometry, calculus, GRE and SAT for a while. I use meaningful scenarios and analogies to explain difficult concepts, making it easy to understand. I have taught students from 5th grade up to undergraduate. After high school, I thought a 5th grade class for a whole academic year. During my undergraduate education, I started tutoring during my sophomore year until i graduate. I also tutored during my graduate studies. As a result, I have enough experience to help anyone in these subject areas. I love to teach and I relate pretty well with my students.

Feel free to contact me anytime. You can cancel any appointment 6 hours in advance at no cost.

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.

Great tutor! — After the first thirty minutes with Gilbert, I knew he was going to be the perfect tutor to help me prepare for the math portion of the GRE exam. He found out my strong suits and covered strategies that I could apply to the exam. The best part is that Gilbert moves at the perfect pace and doesn't waste time on things that I know. ...
