About Angela


Bio

My life-long love of travel has fueled my love for teaching language, specifically English. I graduated summa cum laude from my master's program and cum laude from both of my undergraduate programs. I have a MA in Teaching English as a foreign/second language, a BA in Spanish, and a BS in Environmental Science. I have had experiences teaching both English as a foreign language in Central America and English as a second language in the United States. I have taught many types of English...

My life-long love of travel has fueled my love for teaching language, specifically English. I graduated summa cum laude from my master's program and cum laude from both of my undergraduate programs. I have a MA in Teaching English as a foreign/second language, a BA in Spanish, and a BS in Environmental Science. I have had experiences teaching both English as a foreign language in Central America and English as a second language in the United States. I have taught many types of English including: Professional English, Business English, English for Engineering, General English, and Academic English. My most recent experience teaching English was at the university level but I am open to helping learners at any age or level. I have over 5 years of diverse experience helping English language learners understand, improve, and use the English language competently and confidently.

My goal for each lesson is to provide my students with not only new language forms and structures, but also the skills and strategies to help them begin to learn more English outside of the lesson. That is, it is my belief that the best language learning happens authentically where learners themselves have the curiosity and confidence to engage in the language. My number one rule for language learning is to make mistakes because they are the best learning opportunities. My objectives for each lesson are tailored for my learners' needs. I give some homework as well as periodic progress assessments so that my learners can gauge their own strengths and areas for improvement. I am an enthusiastic and flexible teacher and tutor. I charge $50 an hour for face-to-face tutoring and $40 and hour for online tutoring. If you want to improve your English, look beyond the rest and meet with me, the best!

I can help you with writing, reading, listening, speaking, conversation skills, grammar, test preparation, or cultural issues. I can help you organize and conduct research, write research reports, strategize for high-stakes tests, and understand technical writing formats and conventions.

I look forward to helping you reach your English language potential and be successful in your English endeavors soon! I am available Monday-Friday from 10am to 8pm Mountain time.

During my four years of teaching university level ESL, I used many item types, practice questions, practice reading and writing passages, and practice listening and speaking prompts from the IELTS exam since a majority of my students had taken or were planning to take the IELTS in order to gain entry into a university in the U.S. Therefore, I am extensively familiar with the knowledge, skills, and strategies necessitated by both the IELTS and the TOEFL. In particular, most of my Middle Eastern students, most often comprising the majority of my classroom, preferred to take the IELTS since it was less computer based than the TOEFL (e.g., the speaking portion of IELTS is face to face).
