speakerWhat People Are Saying

My goal is to meet students where they are and guide them towards self-realization and their responsibility in contributing to a world community. My familiarity with age appropriate materials, including educational computer software, enabled me to design fun lessons covering the required curriculum. -- Gabriel Silveira

After six months of tutoring from Gabriel – focusing on the scope and sequence of specific learning objectives coupled with appropriate, timely assessment – his students progressed at least one school year in reading, writing and mathematics. -- University Professor

Gabe clearly knows how to meet students where they are in the learning process, and he knows that his learning process as a teacher should never come to an end. He is bright, energetic, and an inspiration to those with whom he comes into contact. It is an honor and a pleasure to know and to work with Gabriel Silveira. I have no doubt that he is going to be an outstanding, creative, and caring educator, and one who will continue to inspire others. -- University Professor
