More About Me
Hello! My name is Gabby and I am currently a third-year chemistry student at the University of California, Irvine. I have been tutoring for about five years.
When I tutor, I always keep in mind each student’s strengths, weaknesses, and situations. I like to find simpler ways to explain complicated topics, and teach them multiple ways to approach a problem. Every student learns differently, so I do my best to use a different methods for each student. I strive to aid their studies in both the subject and their overall academic career. My students come out stronger not just in the subject I am tutoring, but also in their overall studies.
I try to create a warm and welcoming environment for my students, by being easy to talk to. Students are also welcome to have my cell phone number, in case they need academic help when I am not there. 🙂

Year of Graduation:
I graduated high school with a 4.2 GPA, and top 15% of my school with honors. I have successfully taken AP World History, AP Chemistry, AP Spanish, AP Calculus AB/BC and AP Literature. I was on the Dean's Honors list for three of my undergraduate quarters and currently have a 3.409 GPA. I am the Vice President of my school's chemistry club and the academic chair for my medical fraternity (Phi Delta Epsilon).
I have been tutoring for over four years. Most of it was freelance. I tutored middle school students in math. I have also tutored high school students in Spanish, Calculus and Algebra II. I would also proofread papers. One of my 7th grade students went from an F to a C under my tutoring. The following year, she was better at handling new information in the classroom and was averaging a B+ average.
Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience
I have over 200 hours of volunteering experience at Dignity Health Northridge Hospital Medical Center. My duties included assisting patients in their rooms and also wheel-chairing patients who had been discharged. I have gone to skid row Los Angeles multiple times, to help feed and deliver care packages to the homeless. My medical fraternity is also involved with the Children's Hospital Orange Count (CHOC). We hold fundraising events year round to raise money for CHOC.
