About Angelica

For as long as I can remember, I've loved teaching. I began as a peer tutor of Spanish and math in high school, and later I made a living teaching English to locals and Japanese to fellow foreigners during the four years I lived in Japan after graduation from college. After returning to the U.S., I spent two years teaching "behind the scenes" as an author and editor of online accounting homework problems for Aplia (part of Cengage Learning). I now spend most of my days offering standardized test prep courses to help Honolulu students get into the colleges of their dreams. When I'm not tutoring, I'm usually working on designing original fabrics for my clothing brand, so if you'd like to learn Photoshop or basic sewing, I can help with that as well.

Of course, I love studying, memorizing trivia, and taking standardized tests as much as the next tutor, but I also have empathy for those who aren't as academically inclined (or nerdy, or however you prefer to describe it). I try to make lessons as fun and relevant to students' interests as possible. Most of my experience has been teaching children in grades K-12, but I work well with students of all ages and backgrounds.

Whether you need a tutor who is well-rounded or someone to focus on a specific problem area like math or grammar, I'd love the chance to help. Thanks for reading!

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.

Financial Accounting

I hold a master's degree in accounting and have written online homework problem sets for Aplia to accompany their financial accounting textbooks. I have also worked for several small and mid-sized accounting firms in Honolulu, where I gained practical experience in the areas of tax and audit.

Japanese

I gained fluency in Japanese by majoring in Japanese Studies as an undergraduate and then spending five years living and working in Japan. I can help you attain proficiency in the areas of reading, writing, listening, speaking, and cultural understanding for academic or practical purposes.

Managerial Accounting

I hold a master's degree in accounting and have written online homework problem sets for Aplia to accompany their financial accounting textbooks. I have also worked for several small and mid-sized accounting firms in Honolulu, where I gained practical experience in the areas of tax and audit.

QuickBooks

I have been working with Quickbooks since 2010 doing bookkeeping for 3 small businesses while working toward my master's degree in accounting. Since completing my degree, I have also worked for one year in public accounting, where I've led training seminars on Quickbooks for small-business clients and used Quickbooks to compile financial statements for companies of various sizes. My clients and superiors both said that my training seminars were thorough and easy to follow.

SAT Math

I scored a perfect 800 on the math portion of my SAT in high school, and my passion for math problems involving the use of logic subsequently led me to enjoy a career as an SAT math tutor. My students typically see an increase of 100 to 150 points in their math scores after spending one semester studying with me.
