About Angel

I love to help others learn! I've taught reading and writing to Pre-K, Kindergarten, and remedial reading to all ages. I've taught English grammar, composition and literature K-12 and tutored college undergraduates and grads. I've written English curriculum for three major curriculum companies, focusing on ESL or English grammar and composition. As a professional writer, editor, and proofer, I've assisted many folks with their compositions, from middle school essays to doctoral theses and from small promotional brochures to books for publication.

My entire adult life has been spent in some form of communications. I've taught English, voice (music), public speaking, drama, and piano in school settings and as a private tutor. I've also worked as a trainer for adults in all forms of written and spoken communication, a tutor and counselor for underprivileged women and children, and an inspirational speaker and musician that has traveled the country working with women and children. I love people, I love children, and I will do my very best to help you.

My specialty is identifying learning gaps--areas that the student has not mastered in the past and is now creating a problem for them. I then focus on filling in those gaps to get the student back on track. As an English curriculum writer, I am uniquely equipped to determine what the student knows and what areas need to be strengthened. My varied background gives me a unique perspective on how each student learns and then teaching them in that method.

20+ years of performance and coaching have allowed me to learn not only the intricacies of music performance, but also how to build a foundation from which the student will always benefit. As a high school and college student, I won awards in vocal and piano competitions. But the practicality of that knowledge came about as I spent a decade traveling the U.S. and presenting ministry through singing and usually accompanying myself on the piano. Meanwhile, I helped many young people go on to win awards as singers and musicians--even taught a few tone-deaf students how to carry a tune! I am now a published songwriter and I keep up my performance chops with a local band. I will help you focus on YOUR goals and teach you toward that end.

"If you think it is too hard, we need to take another approach." I believe anyone can learn anything if they can read...and if you can't read, we will fix that part first! Let me take my wide experience and use it as a catalyst to help you achieve your goals. Whether it is writing, reading, speaking, singing, playing piano, you will receive my utmost effort to help you become a more skilled person than you are now.

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.

ACT English

I have written English curriculum (K-12 & college) for several major curriculum companies. I'm a professional writer, editor and proofreader.

Let's work together to improve those scores!

Let's work together to improve those scores!

English

Clear, compelling communication is one of my great passions. I believe that anyone can master English grammar and writing skills. As a teacher, I've helped many students learn simple rules to help prevent common grammar errors. I'd love to help you utilize the English language to help you meet your goals.

GED

Taking the GED is an important and courageous step toward your dreams. I've had plenty of adult students, and I understand the time and effort that are involved in preparing for this test. I will help you diagnose your trouble spots, then help you with every study technique I know. When you take the test, I want you to be confident with all the subject matter. I'd love to help you work toward your success!

I'm a professional writer and a voracious reader. I've taught and coached Literature studies for all levels of school students, from elementary to high school. I've also helped adults with their reading comprehension and analysis for college classes, ministry classes, and just for fun. I believe English Literature can be one of the most rewarding aspects of our culture, and I'd love to help you learn to enjoy the adventure too!

Music Theory

My bachelor's degree is in Education, and I have a major in music. I've taught vocals, sight singing, ear training, and music theory off and on for over 20 years. I recently recorded a single that I wrote. I'd be happy to help you expand your music knowledge and your working understanding of music theory. It is an essential foundation to all musical pursuits.

Phonics

I have a degree in Education. I have written English curriculum for three major curriculum companies, including learning to read programs. I've taught reading programs using phonics in three different schools, and to be honest, it's one of my favorite things to teach! I believe phonics are the key to success in reading, and reading is key to success in life. You can do anything if you can read!

Piano

I've been actively playing piano since I was 14 and have been accompanying music groups and soloists (including myself) ever since. Since I have a major in music to go along with my education major, the music theory part of the piano lesson is a particular joy to cover. I've taught piano off and on for the past 20 years, focusing particularly on technique, timing, and performance. I prefer instructing beginning to intermediate students.

Proofreading

I have written English curriculum (K-12 & college) for several major curriculum companies. I'm a professional writer, editor and proofreader. I am uniquely equipped to help you find your trouble spots and make your message abundantly clear. Clear communication is a key to success!

Public Speaking

My degree is in Education, and I had a major in communications and speech. As a teacher, my speech and drama students won several awards in state and international competitions. As a corporate trainer, I've trained many people in the art of spoken communication. I've also spent more than a decade traveling around the country giving inspirational speeches and classes. I would love to help you find your communications style and learn to speak in a compelling manner for both memorized and extemporaneous speeches. Let's work together to make your voice heard!

SAT Reading

Even the most ardent reader can get tripped up with the Reading Comprehension section of the new SAT. Critical thinking and analytical skills are just a couple of the areas that are crucial to the new format. The keys to reading comprehension can be taught in a few lessons. My system allows us to target the areas where you need the most work and to streamline your process on test day. These skills will continue to help you through your college classes. Let's work together to improve those SAT Reading scores!

SAT Writing

As a professional writer and a creator of English curriculum, I am well-versed in the material that any student needs to succeed. As a professional editor and proofreader, I know the areas where most people have trouble. As an English teacher, I've taught these principles to many students. My goal is not only to help you pass the SAT, but to take communication principles that will help you through your college and professional careers. Let's work together to improve your writing knowledge and skill!

TOEFL

It is important to understand the material of the TOEFL, not just to pass the test. As a teacher, I have a degree in Education and majors in communications and in writing. As a professional writer, I have written English as a Second Language (ESL) curriculum for two major curriculum companies. I would love to help you in this important next step. Clear English communication is essential to your success!

Voice (Music)

One of my college majors included vocal training. I've taught music classes for K-12, trained and conducted choirs from Elementary to adult, and taught private voice lessons from age 11 to adult. Many of my students have won competitions on both state and international levels. I've been a professional singer for 25 years, traveled the country presenting ministry in song, recorded 7 solo CDs, and currently sing professionally with a local band.

Writing

I love to help others find their voice in their writing style. As a teacher, I've helped many students come to a greater understanding of composition rules and methods. As a professional writer, editor, proofreader, and corporate trainer, I've helped many adults find their voice and publish their material. Clear, compelling writing is just a few lessons away; it is not as hard as you think!
