Gerardo definitely knows a lot about Microsoft Excel. He taught me how to use pivot tables, create histograms, produce graphs of data, and he also helped me learn a few keyboard short-cuts to do my work more efficiently. Gerardo is a patient and effective tutor and I highly recommend him!
Ana
Gerardo helped me out in Calculus because I was truly struggling. I had a tough professor and I had not taken a math course in a couple of years. He did a great job at tutoring me through webcam and he was really patient with me. I would definitely recommend!
Henry
Gerardo helped me prepare for my AP Calculus AB test. I had trouble understanding certain concepts such as related rates and using integration to find volumes. He explained problems very clearly by going step-by-step, and making sure I understood the process every step of the way. I highly recommend Gerardo if you are looking for a math tutor.

I thought I was pretty good at excel! Well, Judi was able to show me that I was only using 10% of my Excel brain. I had NO idea what I could do with Excel to make my life easier until I learned from Judi. I'm sure I will be using her again! Thanks!!!

I am a current private tutor and entrepreneur with 9+ years of experience FEATURED ON FORBES 30 UNDER 30 in 2016.

I strive to not just teach the subject, but also the psychology of elite test-takers, to not just get you ready for one test, but to also teach you the process that allows for repeated & continued success.

With my quadrilingual ability, I created “La Méthode” or in English, The Method, a tutoring style combining the best of the American and the French approachs to learning so that students can learn from world-renowned theories at the same time as they discover more practical examples to delve into.

My goal is to see you so proficient with the subject that you are able to teach it yourself.

About Aziz

I have changed environments many times, settling in Paris after living in Morocco for eighteen years then moving to a complete new world, here in the USA. Helped by the fact that I am quadrilingual, I am quite used to interact with people from different backgrounds. While I love helping students un
