About Gloria

I have been teaching, coaching, and training in a variety of contexts for the past 10 years. I started teaching figure skating as a coach (I was a competitive skater for over 15 years!) and now I teach in both academic and applied settings. I have been teaching at the University of Pennsylvania since 2006, and my day job is teaching US military soldiers, DA civilians, and their families on principles and skills of sport, performance, and positive psychology.

I love tutoring and teaching because it's so great to see the lightbulb turn on for someone. That often happens when we can bring materials to life by making subjects relevant, fun, and interesting rather than just trying to memorize concepts out of a book. I was never the smartest student in school, but I worked really hard and made incremental progress and figured out ways to make learning sticky for me. I hope to be able to pass that along to someone else.

I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology, a master's degree in Applied Positive Psychology, and a doctorate in Sport and Performance psychology. I know the field of psychology from a lot of different angles, which makes me a unique tutor. I've also had lots of research and applied experience which can help me bring concepts to life.

Get in touch! I would love to meet you and learn more about how I can help.
