Introduction: Hello, I am Graciele, but you can call me Gra. :) I come from beautiful and welcoming Brazil. I’m a native Portuguese speaker and fluent English and Spanish speaker. I’m also a musical instruments lover; I play the guitar and the drums. I started my teaching career back home, preparing kids and adults to enter college while getting my Bachelors of Engineering. My passion for teaching developed at a very early age while watching my mom change the lives of her students. Ten years ago, I came to the US and got my Master’s degree in Business. Then I started working as a tutor, gaining thousands of hours of experience through the years. I’m currently enrolled in a Master’s degree program in Mathematics for Teaching at Harvard University to gain more knowledge. I’m constantly learning to make sure I can provide my students with the best learning experience. I see effective tutoring as the ability to translate complex topics into a language that anyone could understand. It feels great to see my students’ eyes sparkle when they grasp a concept that was once very hard to understand. My job is to make everything clear so that they can reach their goals and dreams. Thanks for reading my profile. Have a blessed day!

Gra is an amazing tutor. She helped me with homework equations that would have been so hard for me to learn on my own. Gra Is very patient if you don’t understand something, and explains how to do it in a simple way. She’s very sweet and makes math fun to learn. From the few tutors that I’ve had in the past, I feel that Gra is the best one that I’ve had.👍🌷👩🏽‍🏫✏️

Words cannot describe how happy I am that I found Graciele! Hands down the best tutor that I have ever had. For reference I am a college student who changed majors last minute and changed the course of my studies completely. I needed to completely relearn all Math up to calculus from scratch since it has been so many years since I’ve practiced it. I’m a Biology major now so it’s very important. In the short time that I’ve worked with Graciele she has helped me learn so much. She has helped me advance in my courses faster than I anticipated. Things just stick, and sometimes when they don’t she’ll go over the things you need help with and you’ll be right back to it. The way she teaches you just makes sense. I’ve tried multiple tutors all over zoom and they just didn’t work out. I thought that I had absolutely needed to meet with someone in person for the material to stick or to learn the material at all. But Graciele’s structure and the way she teaches and approaches teaching is very comprehensible and feels as though she is really right beside you. She has so much patience and passion for what she does. I never once have felt rushed. You can tell she really cares about you and that you succeed. She goes at the pace you’re comfortable with and will explain things to you as many times as you need to understand. Not only that but she’s very responsive and never gives up on you, she’s there for you when you need her. Her teaching is very organized, which is something I didn’t get with previous tutors. So this is an aspect I really appreciate. You really get a good overall connection with Gra. If I could give 1,000 stars I would. And I am so happy to be working with her, and you would be too!

I am Mani. Graciele is my daughters tutor from almost 2 months for College Calculus. She is amazing teacher 👍and very very patient. Even though we didn’t realize that my daughter has knowledge gaps from Algebra, Gra is covering those basic gaps too to go ahead in calculus. She responds to our questions or our concerns very quickly and analyze the problems correctly and deal with very emotional way too. Her teaching values are way ahead when compared to earlier tutors. My daughter gained so much confidence after getting classes from her and she is so far going great in her class. For especially in engineering,Math is very core so Gra is very helpful for my daughter to make her strong in math so that she will confidently start journey in engineering. I recommend Gra to anyone who wants to become strong and confident in Math 😍

After an unsuccessful semester of college Algebra our daughter needed to retake the course. However, this time she was taking an entire semester of math in 4 weeks. We tried another tutor and after turning in the work our daughter completed with the tutor she missed at least half the points. Thankfully, we found Graciele. She is so much more than a tutor. She recognized knowledge gaps that were prerequisites for the concepts being taught in the course. She helped our daughter master the concepts she was missing and built on those concepts while helping teach the homework. Graciele is excellent at communicating with both the parent and student. She is not tutoring to help the student pass an assignment or test. She is tutoring to teach the student to learn the material. From the first lesson she helped our daughter develop a formula sheet to use to keep track of all important concepts as the class progressed. She was an encourager and dedicated to helping our daughter succeed. In 4 weeks our daughter went from recently not passing college Algebra to achieving an ‘A’ in the course. More importantly than the grade she truly understands the material. Thank you Graciele! You are a true angel!!!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My rate covers not only a very good tutoring session itself, but also my students will have access to all the notes from our lesson. These notes will be very organized and well-written and they will be sent to their email at the end of the session. I'm available for my students 24/7. They can call me with questions, problems they got stuck on, etc, with no additional cost. If they call me and I do not answer, it is probably because I am in the middle of a session and will text them as soon as I'm done. I guide them with instructions via audio/text/call. Your success/your kids' is my success. so it's extremely important for me that you are satisfied with the results. This is not only my full-time job, but also it is my passion.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I ask them to have a notebook just for our lessons, to not mix it with any other material. I will have them create a "Formula Sheet" where we will add all formulas, tricks, short cuts that will be very helpful to organize their studies. If they want to talk to me to share their expectations before the first lesson, I will be glad to talk.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Thousands of hours of experience, teaching students since 2006. All types of students and since everyone has a different pace and learning style, it is very important that these student work with someone that besides being patient also have the skills required to translate a complex concept into something much simpler.
