Bio

Following a career as a computer and aerospace engineer, and inspired by some on-the-job mentoring opportunities, and some informal tutoring assignments, I have decided that I would like to develop a second career as a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Educator. As a first step, I would like to develop a mathematics tutoring practice.

Following a career as a computer and aerospace engineer, and inspired by some on-the-job mentoring opportunities, and some informal tutoring assignments, I have decided that I would like to develop a second career as a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Educator. As a first step, I would like to develop a mathematics tutoring practice.

At work, I was often called upon to train and lead technical teams. For example, I trained a group of aerospace engineers to use a software test facility. This enabled them to check out the prototype code before taking it into the full up integration test facility. As a mathematics graduate student at the University of Wisconsin, I taught PreCalculus for the Social Sciences and Business and was gratified to watch many of my students master the material and gain entrance into the competitive professional schools. In more recent years, I have informally tutored the sons and daughters of friends in high school math subjects.
I enjoy teaching and tutoring because I enjoy my subject and want others to master it as needed for their own enjoyment or as a stepping stone towards a career objective.

During my career as an aerospace engineer, where I focused on solutions to mathematical problems in navigation, guidance, and flight planning, I was required to exercise skills in Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry. PreCalculus, and Calculus. As a computer engineer and as an aerospace engineer, I frequently had to think about Finite Math, because a computer is a finite machine, capable of representing numbers in a machine dependent representation. While one could never develop an exact solution, one could guarantee a solution that was accurate to within some given error.

Test Preparation

ASVAB,

ASVAB

I have a Masters degree in mathematics with minors in physics and computer science. I recently retired from a career as an systems engineer in the aerospace industry . In this role I needed to understand the customer requirements, and translate them into steps for programmers to code and/or testers to verify. This required both the technical ability to understand the product and the verbal ability to explain it. During my career I also participated in the coding and testing roles. I worked with many Military personnel and have a great affinity and appreciation for those in service.

Extremely knowledgeable and patient, willing to go the extra mile

Pre-Calc. at college level. Gladys desires to help the student understand, and she takes the time and effort to seek that understanding. She can help in many ways, she is not limited in her abilities to help students learn this subject.

HARLEY, 7 lessons with Gladys

Great at helping me understand

I loved the multiple steps taken to ensure she was teaching me right. She even took time to recheck her work and also gave me a little extra time! I’m preparing for my college exam for math and I’m feeling better already!

Breonna Valdes, 2 lessons with Gladys

Very Knowledgeable

Helped with graphing piecewise functions. Valuable assistance with calculator functions. Provided a better understand of how to look at the information provided.

Taylor, 1 lesson with Gladys

Gladys worked with my daughter who was struggling with Algebra 1. She was always in time and very patient. I would recommend her to anyone and we surely will be using her again!

Dawn , 5 lessons with Gladys

Great teacher.

My daughter had her first lesson today with Gladys S. Gladys was very prepared to go over the Algebra that my daughter is struggling with. She worked out the problems and answered my daughters questions.

Holly, 14 lessons with Gladys

Great Algebra 2 tutor

She is very patient and knowledgeable with Algebra 2. I received help for my next test and really understood the concepts taught. I would recommend Gladys for anyone who needs xtra help. She took the time to ask what problems I needed help with and came prepared to explain them to me. Well done Gladys.

Shirley, 2 lessons with Gladys

Wonderful, Knowledgeable, willing to go above and beyond

Gladys has been able to help my daughter better understand what she is learning in class. She has gained new confidence in her abilities to do her math work. Gladys goes the extra mile to make sure my daughter is understanding the material. She is a person who loves to teach students.

Robert, 20 lessons with Gladys

Exceptionally knowledgeable, confident and patient mathematics tutor.

Gladys taught me how to find radius and equation of a circle, absolute value and types of factoring among other pre-calculus items. I like how Gladys is not only enthusiastic about what she was teaching me, but also was so confident in her knowledge so she could go slow and teach me step-by-step. Gladys helped me to build my confidence in the topic so I can actually enjoy learning more about pre-calculus and calculus.

Denise, 1 lesson with Gladys

Gladys is a very patient and knowledgeable math tutor. Thanks for your helping me understand math better

Gladys helped me with my 100 questions math assignment which is mixtures of arithmetic, pre - algebra, geometry, fractions, graphs, percentage, and word problems solving.
