My name is Gladys Gahona. I am a mexican private teacher on Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics. In 1977, in order to economically support my studies, I started teaching math at a secondary school. In 1981 I graduated in chemical engineering at Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán (UADY), in Mérida, Yucatán, México. During the last years of my university studies, I worked at UADY at the former Planning Department (today General Coordination of Planning and Institutional Assessment) where I had the opportunity to be assitant of several educational researchers, working in collaborating projects along with several mexican and foreign universities. In 2002 I postgraduated in Technology Management at UADY.

Although my professional formation is oriented to engineering, productivity, business and technology management, I've loved teaching since ever. My job (AF Centro in Cancun, Q.Roo, México) consists on tutoring and providing counseling to learners of secondary & early tertiary level, helping them on homework, or preparing them for examinations. There is a special group I love to work with, adult people. They are confident and enthusiastic learners, they always give the best of them.

The knowledge I have gained on teaching/tutoring comes from my personal experiences and self-studies. I'm also been a self learner in computing, web programing, ITC and web 2.0 platforms and tools. Since last November I have had the privilege to meet Nellie Deutsch who has become an inspiring mentor to me on improving my english language as well as moderating live online conferences, facilitating online courses, and integrating technology to education. Now I dedicate my professional life to my two passions: teaching and learning, particularly learning by doing and learning by teaching.
