Gabriela has passed the required certification exams and is experienced in all the subjects listed on this site and on Wyzant Tutors.com (40 U.S. educational subjects). Primarily she has studied English, French, Italian, and Romanian languages and cultures since childhood; after becoming a U.S. citizen, she pursued graduate studies in European and Eurasian Studies at George Washington University (one of the four D.C. universities listed in the QS World University Ranking, 2018).

Her career started in 1988 when she became a full-time translator and English instructor to researchers at the Research Institute for Bovine Breeding in Balotesti, a Bucharest (Romania) district; at the same time, she started to teach children. Multitasking via teaching, interpreting, and research & editing jobs — and helping students across generational lines — has defined her career ever since.

Gabriela’s background is international: she was born in a Greek family and brought up bilingual, Romanian-French in Dobruja (a multicultural Black Sea region of Romania). From the age of 3, she also studied English, French, Romanian, and Art in schools. In the 1990s, she relocated with her family to Naples, Italy, where she studied Italian language and art. Overseas, she worked/resided temporarily in Italy, Oslo, and Quebec for linguistic and cultural studies, and worked extensively with French companies in Romania. She acquired U.S. citizenship in 1997 and has resided in Maryland, New York, and Texas for the past 20 years; she moved to Texas in 2009. In Washington D.C. and Virginia she instructed and tested U.S. diplomats through Inlingua School.

Throughout a career in which her goal has been to constantly perfect  and employ her knowledge of the 4 languages she grew up with (French, Italian, English, and Romanian), she has also worked successfully as a translator and editor: she translated novels for Colosseum Publishing House (Romania), poetry for The American Literary Translators Association at Texas University (U.S.A.), a French book for LiterArt XXI (U.S.A.), and numerous business books for Open University Business School (U.K.) where she also provided televised interpreting.

Book translations and publications: English and French fiction for Colosseum Publishing House (novels by Anita Brookner, Barbara Cartland, Philip Roth, Janet Dailey, etc); business books for Open University Business School (UK).

Her personal articles and poems were published in The International Notebook of Poetry and Origins-LiterArt XXI.

In Texas she has provided English editing to the Conservative Party of Texas, USA and worked with Dallas test prep schools.
