About Angelina

While I am licensed in all subjects PreK-6 and English and social studies for 6-8 grade, I have been an 8th grade English teacher in Virginia for 15 years. During that time, I have tutored hundreds of students, providing tailored instruction to match their learning styles and abilities. I decided to take a year off from the classroom, but I soon realized how much I miss teaching the students.

While I have taught middle school, I have tutored elementary, high school, and college students. I have worked with students of all abilities, and regardless of their initial ability level, I am confident that I can challenge and teach them. Although I personally excel in all subject areas, I specialize in tutoring grammar, writing, vocabulary, study skills/organization, and test prep. I have a unique approach to teaching grammar, vocabulary, and sentence structure, which makes it easy for everyone to follow.

I have had students of all abilities in the past 15 years and have an excellent pass rate on standardized tests.

I began taking college classes at the University of Kentucky when I was in the 8th grade. I graduated from high school early and was subsequently accepted into medical school while a freshman in college. I turned this opportunity down because I wanted to teach. It's my passion, and it's what I excel at.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. 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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a license to teach PreK-6. I did my student teaching in 1st grade and in 6th grade. My previous school was a 6-8 school, so I spent a lot of time tutoring those grades.

ISEE

I have had the pleasure of working with a tutor from California who tutors almost exclusively for the ISEE. I have created a multitude of resources for her and have found that the ISEE is very similar to the state standardized tests that I have taught for 15 years.

I have a 90% pass rate on the Virginia SOLs, which are among the highest in difficulty in the country. While the ISEE is tested differently, I have studied in depth their guidelines, expectations, and requirements for doing well in all subjects.

In short, I have a master's degree in education, I've taught and tutored for 15 years, and I've studied the essential knowledge required for the ISEE.

SOL

For the past 15 years as an English teacher, I have taught the Virginia State SOLs on a daily basis. I pretty much know them by heart. I have been on several committees over the years to design content based on SOLs.

Study Skills

When I was in college, I worked in student support as a college tutor who specialized in organization and study skills. When I graduated, I took what I learned from there into the classroom with me.

In my 15 years of teaching, I have had numerous opportunities to teach study skills to my students and study skills as an after school class.

I teach the basic principles in small chunks and tailor them for each student to make the lifestyle changes easier adopt.

Tennis

I have been the head boys' varsity tennis coach for the past 4 years. I have given private lessons to those as young as 5. I am completing my training to be a USTA certified tennis coach.

An Experienced Top-notch Online Tutor, highly recommended!! — When we hired Angelina as a English Tutor for my 5th grade son 6 month ago, I had some concerns about the effectiveness of online tutoring. I worried that Angelina might not be able to keep my son's attention on the subjects since she was "a virtual person". Angelina used multimedia and many online teaching tools to make tutoring experience effective and interesting. To my surprise, after a few s ...
