About Me


I’m a passionate tutor with a desire to help students learn and achieve their fullest potential. As a test-taker who has achieved a perfect score herself, I understand the current SAT and ACT criteria, as well as the test-taking strategies, at a level that other less experienced and lower-scoring SAT/ACT tutors cannot match.

I first started tutoring by helping students in my local community. Shortly after, I received much praise and multiple requests for continued tutoring services from my students’ surrounding community members. While in college, I decided that I wanted to tutor full-time after graduation and expand my tutoring services, and so Prodigy SAT/ACT Tutoring was born.


 Satisfied Students 

-Lucy M.
Former ACT Student
“Gloria is a great tutor, who is not only extremely helpful and thorough with her teaching, but also very nice, flexible, and understanding. After hours and hours and thousands of dollars spent at overrated Newport Beach tutoring companies, I was fed up and looking for a new ACT tutor! Once I found Gloria, I started immediately since my next ACT was only a month away. Even though I was new to working with Gloria, in four sessions, I was already improving and felt comfortable about taking my next test. After a few months of weekly sessions, I improved 8 points (from a 24-32) on my composite score! In perspective, I had only improved 3 points in 4 months at my previous tutor for triple the price. Thank you Gloria!”
-Danielle S.
Current SAT Student
“When I contacted Gloria for help with the SAT, I had very little SAT experience and only a month and a half to prepare for the test. At the time, anyone would say that my ambition was both admirable and foolhardy, but Gloria believed in me and did everything in her ability to achieve my goals. During that month and a half, I worked intensively with her on an almost daily basis, and I invested over a hundred hours of practice. Slowly but surely, my original practice SAT test score of 1210 steadily rose, and I scored a 1420 on the official exam, an incredible increase of 210 points. Her dedication and effort to me, the student, made it all possible as she constantly offered personalized techniques and training to improve my scores. Consequently, I’m excited to continue working with Gloria to raise my SAT score to greater heights, and with Gloria by my side, I truly believe I will be able to break 1500 on my next test.”
-Lauren H.
Former ACT Student
“Gloria brings a level of personalization in her tutoring. She mentored me as I went into taking the act for the third and fourth time, and took me under her wing as a student. She brought a level of individualization to my tutoring sessions and helped me bring my score up 4 points in two months (going from a 30 to a 34). Gloria is more than just a tutor, she understands her students and makes lesson plans personalized to each student’s goals. On top of being very knowledgeable about the test and knowing how to help her students improve on the test, Gloria is very motivating and encourages her students as they are trying to improve their ACT score. After going through several tutors that I didn’t necessarily click with, I was so lucky to have found Gloria and recommend her to anyone who is looking to improve their ACT score (and is willing to put in the work to do so). Without Gloria, I doubt I would have been able to achieve a 34 on the ACT.”
