About Gladys


Bio

I recently retired from a 30-year career as an aerospace systems engineer and I have been tutoring with Wyzant for over two years. Last year I began tutoring the ASVAB to students desiring to enter the military. With my help, my academic students have improved their grades and my ASVAB students have achieved qualifying scores. I am passionate about helping my students and am considered a patient, caring and effective tutor.

I recently retired from a 30-year career as an aerospace systems engineer and I have been tutoring with Wyzant for over two years. Last year I began tutoring the ASVAB to students desiring to enter the military. With my help, my academic students have improved their grades and my ASVAB students have achieved qualifying scores. I am passionate about helping my students and am considered a patient, caring and effective tutor.

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.

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. I enjoy teaching and tutoring because I enjoy my subject and want others to master it as needed to fill a requirement or as a stepping stone towards a career objective.

Test Preparation

ASVAB,

ASVAB

I have a master's degree in mathematics with undergraduate minors in physics and computer science. I recently retired from a career as a systems engineer in the aerospace industry. During my career I worked with many Military personnel and have a great affinity and appreciation for those in service. My work with ASVAB students focuses on improving scores in any combination of the four subtests of the AFQT: (1) Arithmetic Reasoning (2) Mathematics Knowledge (3) Word Knowledge (4) Paragraph Comprehension At the initial meeting I ask to see the student’s prior scores and his/ her desired occupation and branch of service. Together, we identify the sub tests in which the student needs the most help and we make a schedule. I assign and grade homework and administer short quizzes to verify that lessons are understood. I provide handouts of key concepts. I also teach test-taking and time management skills. So far, I have had two students complete my program. 1. A student gained 12 points qualifying him for the job he wanted in the Coast Guard. 2. A student gained 23 points qualifying her for the job she wanted in the Navy.

Knowledgeable with ASVABs

Gladys is great with my son. She’s very patient and understands fully what Sean’s gaps are with Math. She comes fully prepared with every session. My son really feels he’s learning and moving into the direction he needs to be at.

Andrea, 14 lessons with Gladys

Knowledgeable and patient Tutor

We moved from Virginia to New Jersey this year. My son was having a hard time in the school curriculum transition. The first time he got grade D and I was shocked. I found out Ms. Gladys for the help. She is an excellent tutor. She has a lots of patience. She is knowledgeable. My son's grade is A now with 8 lessons. He is more confident now. Ms. Gladys is one of the best tutors. She stays extra even after the class is over to teach my son. She is the tutor who teaches the kids just because she loves teaching and wants to share knowledge not for money.

Mauna, 5 lessons with Gladys

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!

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
