I am a certified professional tutor who has been teaching and acquiring educational experience since 1992; I am looking forward to helping you and your children. I am very experienced in teaching languages and humanities. English, French, and Italian are languages I grew up with. I studied these languages in college (BA, MA degrees), and used them in my career in Europe and the United States; my certifications in teaching business and history subjects are derived from my MA degree in International Affairs and Business. In the United States, I've been tutoring since 1999; I was a teacher and examiner of diplomats in Washington D.C. where I specialized in immersion training (a method that ensures fast effective learning). In my career, I have provided personalized instruction and test preparation to students of all age groups; many were accepted by their favorite schools. My students have increased their grades from the 20% to the 90%-100%, often with only a few lessons.
My certifications are these: a Master of Arts degree in EU Studies, International Affairs, and Business from George Washington University (2004, Washington, D.C.); coursework at Georgetown University (Washington, D.C.); online coursework at Sorbonne University (2017, Paris, France); a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Philology from the University of Bucharest, Romania; and extensive language and culture studies in Naples (Italy), Nice (France), Quebec (Canada), etc. I have worked in the U.S. and Europe for The University of Texas/ALTA, Open University Business School (UK), ELITE Test Prep school, Inlingua (ILR/government test prep); Global LT, UNICEF, U.S. courts; DIPLOMAT, The School of European Languages and Art, Varsity Tutors, Tutors com, and Certified Language Interpreters.

Gabriela is very patient with my 7 year old. She also praises her work which helps with my daughter self esteem. My daughter has dyslexia and needs a lot of patience when teaching and Gabriela has been that.Ashley, 2 lessons with Gabriela
Approachable and adaptable!
Gabriela works with you to meet your goals and adapts to your needs and learning style! She’s very nice, plus very approachable and open when I have questions or want to shift gears. I always feel like I’ve accomplished something after a lesson!Lydia, 3 lessons with Gabriela
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
The lesson included reading, writing, phonics, and vocabulary. My daughter had fun and was learning at the same time. She is very excited for her next lesson. We are very blessed to have found Gabriela. She is very kind and really loves what she does.Sarah, 2 lessons with Gabriela
Extremely knowledgeable and helpful tutor!
After only a few lessons, I am able to grasp more of the French language than I have been able to by using a program like Rosetta Stone or by studying on my own. Each lesson is personalized and she takes the time to slow down and explain difficult concepts when needed. One of the wonderful things about Gabriela is that she understands what is like to learn French herself, which makes her very relatable as an instructor. She has so much experience in a variety of settings and different types of students, and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn French!Ashley, 3 lessons with Gabriela
