Exceptional Math Tutor
We are a North Shore Chicago family who engaged Gabriel to work with our child who was in the last semester of an honors algebra I class and earning a low D. To make a long story short, my child finished the class with a B+ and was recommended for honors geometry in fairly a competitive program. That was accomplished in two months. But the grades are secondary. My child was floundering and losing his interest in math, though completely capable of doing the work. In a very short time Gabriel was able to get him back on track and develop fundamental understanding of mathematical concepts that go beyond the book and tests. Gabriel is exceptional at communicating with and teaching young adults. His knowledge of mathematics is complete. And he is able develop within his students a similar knowledge, confidence and facility with math. Gabriel is also an educator and so he has been immensely helpful in our understanding of where our child is academically and how that fits with his current school. We are greatly appreciative of the time Gabriel provided, he was very generous and flexible. We highly recommend Gabriel for bright, young students struggling with math concepts. You cannot do better.

Knowledgeable and patient
Gabriel is helping my daughter with her math. She is doing well in school but I would like her to be more interested and challenged in math. After a couple of lessons with Gabriel I believe that he is exactly what I am looking for long-term as my daughter continues to progress in school. I highly recommend Gabriel.

Assessment
Gabriel was able to gather what was needed from my child to determine need and recommend a textbook. Next session, now with a plan, I can rate having enough data. Thanks

A great first lesson
Gabriel is helping my son with high school Geometry. My son was a little reluctant to try a private tutor, but Gabriel was able to engage him right away. They discussed and worked on problems together. To my surprise, my son responded well and stayed focused. After his first lesson, my son immediately expressed that he wanted to continue with this tutor. We can see that my son's confidence is growing. We are very happy that we found this tutor!

Gabriel helped my daughter to study for her pre calculus test. She really liked working with him. She felt less anxious and more confident about her upcoming test. She would like to continue tutoring sessions with Gabriel

Awesome first lesson
Gabriel was great. He was very personable and my daughter felt very comfortable. We look forward to working with him again. We are hoping to set up in person lessons in the future.

Good Math tutor for my rising 6th grader
Gabriel is helping my son prepare for Math this coming year and going over what he covered in 5th grade. I like his teaching style as he knows how to incorprate fun breaks between sessions so my son looks forward to lessons. I am certain my son will be ready to excel in his new school.

Good math tutor
Gabriel went through the problems with my son and explained how to solve the ones he didn't get right, but he also went over the ones he got right to make sure he was doing them in an efficient and thought out manner. Good teaching style for kids, I like that he used the board to explain the problems and he assigned homework.

Engaging Tutor
Gabriel met with my 4th grader to tutor him for math. Although it was the very first session, Gabriel connected with well with my son. Math is not the easiest topic for my son and Gabriel made it fun for him and helped him understand concepts a bit more simpler. I truly look forward to continued sessions with Gabriel in math and writing to start off. I believe that Gabriel may be exactly what I'm looking for long-term as my boys continue to progress in school. Thank you Gabriel!
