About Gloria

I have three degrees in education, and I have been a teacher, administrator, and college professor. I have two degrees in special education, and I have worked with all levels of disability. I am certified as a teacher of the blind/visually impaired, and I have taught braille.

I individualize tutoring based on the needs of my students, and I am able to modify my strategies to meet the needs of individual learners. I am very patient, and I emphasize the student's success and accomplishments. My primary areas of expertise are in reading, writing, and literature, as well as any area of special education.
