About Angela


Bio

I have always had a dual career path as a bilingual creative professional and educator. I have been teaching Photoshop and English to non-native speakers as the teacher of record at Otis College of Art and Design since 2005. I started tutoring in college where I tutored Spanish, French, Italian and Anthropology. The subjects I tutor for Wyzant are Spanish (all levels including AP and IB), English composition, English and Spanish language acquisition (EFL and SFL), high school through college...

I have always had a dual career path as a bilingual creative professional and educator. I have been teaching Photoshop and English to non-native speakers as the teacher of record at Otis College of Art and Design since 2005. I started tutoring in college where I tutored Spanish, French, Italian and Anthropology. The subjects I tutor for Wyzant are Spanish (all levels including AP and IB), English composition, English and Spanish language acquisition (EFL and SFL), high school through college graduate level academic writing and digital and traditional art, all levels from beginning, to AP Art, and professional levels.

I love tutoring because it is one on one teaching. Great gains are the result of focused attention on specific goals and customized plans that allow for flexibility and efficiency. I take a genuine interest in my students and love to see them succeed.

MAT from USC in TESOL. 3.97 GPA.

I have a BA from UCLA in Spanish Language and Literature. I lived in Spain, Mexico and Honduras and use Spanish consistently in my daily life.

I have 30 years experience as a creative professional in the Toy Industry. I worked at Mattel for 20 years and Lakeshore Learning Materials for nearly 12 years in full-time staff positions. Now I freelance for the following toy companies: Mattel, inc., Moose Toys, Spinmaster Toys, Funrise Toys, Alpha Toys, Yulu Toys and Charisma Brands.

I love to teach and I love to guide people to meet their goals and discover wonderful surprises about their own unique talents along the way! I firmly believe in celebrating and activating prior knowledge to facilitate high-level learning.

Personable and helpful

She went over my paper with a fine tooth comb and suggested minor changes and helped ensure that APA formatting was correct. She was personable and a good listener. I provided her with the assignment rubric and she reviewed the paper to ensure that it aligned with the rubric. Hoping for an excellent grade with her help.

Amazing Angela!

Angela is teaching my amazing girlfriend how to improve her English. She is patient, thoughtful, courteous and extremely intelligent. My girlfriend raves about how accommodating Angela is and how excited she gets before and after a lesson with Angela. A great tutor and person!

Awesome

Helped my daughter so much with her Spanish 3 test. She came in at the last minute and really helped bump up her grade and showed her how to use her textbook.

Tutor responded:

Jessica, Thank you so much for the review! Your daughter is very bright and best of all, fearless when it came to tackling a challenging subject. We analyzed a Pablo Neruda poem together which is something that is college level work! It has been a pleasure to work with her!

Knowledgeable and patient Tutor

Motivates the student very well. Highly recommend for high school students and tough classes like AP Spanish. Helps the child achieve goals even in short period of time.

Great Tutor

Angela is a fantastic tutor. She puts a great deal of time and effort into her lessons. She is very caring and genuinely wants the student to do well. We were incredibly lucky to stumble upon Angela when we needed help the most. Angela expects you to work hard so that you will actually benefit from her services. I honestly cannot say enough about her. She is fantastic!!!
