About Angela

Hi There! Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile!

My name is Angela and I am a certified Special Education teacher. I have been teaching for the past 7 years and I LOVE it! Currently, I work in an intermediate school setting, running a resource room as well as co-teaching Mathematics, Language Arts and Reading. I have worked with students who have a wide range of diagnosis as well as those who do not necessarily have a diagnosis, but may struggle in different subject areas.

I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Sacred Heart University. I went on to earn my K-12 teaching certification and a Master's in Special Education from Central Connecticut State University.

I love to tutor and have been tutoring for the past 3 years. I enjoy working 1:1 with students, creating and collaborating on different methods to ensure they reach their full academic potential. I have tutored students at a variety of ages and in a variety subject areas; from high school seniors in English to sixth grade Mathematics to sophomore Biology.

As a Special Education teacher, I have received training in many different educational programs which include, but are not limited to, Touch Math, P.A.L.S., Orton-Gillingham, Wilson Reading, Reading Milestones and Visualizing and Verbalizing. I am also experienced working with Behavior Management Systems, establishing a token economy, TRAX and APEX.

I have experience working with students who may have a Specific Learning Disability, Emotional Disturbance, Autism, Speech and Language Impairments and ADD/ADHD. Also, I have worked with students, who have no diagnosis, may benefit from extra-practice or additional assistance. I like to be creative and come up with different ideas that would best suit the individuals learning styles!

Thank you again for taking the time to read my profile! I hope to hear from you soon!
