About Gladys

I have been a certified teacher since I was 20 years old. That gives me an experience of over 40 years working with children, young adults as well as young adults. I came to the United States from Ghana in West Africa in 1996 with a Bachelor's degree in Art education. While I was working towards my Master's Degree in special education, I taught Pre-K as a lead teacher in Brooklyn and the Bronx respectively. I also worked part time as a Home Health Aid, caring for Home Bound seniors with Alheimers and other aging problems. During this time I also took an online writing course with Institute of children's Literature, writing stories for children and young Adults. One of my stories was published in AIM magazine in 2002. For the past ten years, I have worked with the New York City department of Education for the past ten years teaching a self-contained class of K-3 of children with special needs, from which I retired in August 2014.

I love teaching, and could not remain retired. I have a lot to give students especially those with special needs. I like to see them light up whenever they have the lightbulb or Aha! moments. My love for reading and writing will be an added advantage to spur children on to believe in themselves and not give up. I would be happy to work with any age group of children.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
