I usually teach using a combination of explanatory classes, audiovisual content and problem solving, using pre-made slide-shows as little as possible, prioritizing student-teacher interactions and out-of-the-box thinking, in order to help students develop a mind of their own and give them the tools to solve the problems without needing to rely on memorizing formulas text or just reproduce others' ideas, but rather understanding the problems and applying critical thinking to arrive at a viable solution.
I'm open minded and appreciate students which bring forth new perspectives, point out mistakes and show better approaches to problems. I'm also very commited to my students, in the sense of being available for the largest amount of time possible and always trying to answer to their questions promptly, even if it requires me to research and/or learn (or re-learn) a subject.

I highly recommend Gabriel as your instructor!
He was my instructor in my Econometrics I course, in my second year of undergrad, everything ran smoothly under his guidance. He was prepared and well organized in verbally and visually outlining the events for any given day. Gabriel was also a very fair marker and was open to discussion when clarification was needed. Most importantly, Gabriel was friendly, which made every student feel like they could approach him, fostering a more personable and supportive sense of community within the class. He is a teacher that strives to bring the best out of his students.
Gabriel is an excellent econometrics teacher. I already had the opportunity to learn from him. I definitely recommend him as a teacher!
