Hello. I'm a friendly, dynamic tutor with experience teaching students from middle school age to adults returning to school. I have three years of experience teaching high school English and five years of experience teaching college composition. I also have taught speech and reading classes. I really enjoy working one-on-one with students because it allows me to "see the wheels turning" as they learn to understand what they are reading or express their ideas in writing. I can be a proofreader, but I'd rather help students through the entire process of writing an essay so they develop skills to eventually be independent writers.
My other academic strength is math; I taught a basic algebra (college) class for six years and tutored many students along the way. It is so rewarding to hear students tell me that I presented a math concept in a way they could finally understand. And, of course, my uncommon combination of verbal and math skills makes me an ideal tutor for the ACT and admission tests like the TEAS.
It's important to me that my students build confidence as well as skills, so whether you are struggling with English, math, or a big test, please know that I have a non-intimidating approach, a good sense of humor, and a lot of patience.

Great First Session!
Angela reviewed geometry and science with my daughter. Additionally she spent some time on reading comptrehension and writing.

Incredible ACT tutor!
After two unsatisfactory ACT scores along with a 9 week class that did nothing to help, we decided to provide our daughter with a tutor for one-on-one sessions to prepare for her third and last attempt. Angela to the rescue! She had the experience to know exactly what was holding our daughter back and off they went. You could see our daughter's confidence increase over the weeks and she came to really look forward to her sessions with Angela. (she misses her already). Angela is patient and brings a lot of positive energy with her. The scores from our daughter's last exam were outstanding and exceeded her original goals. She increased 4 points for her composite score and her weakest section increased by 6 points. We are very grateful for Angela's work with our daughter but also with encouraging our daughter to see herself as smart, skilled, and capable. The skills she learned with Angela could be seen in how she approached her end of year finals which took place only one week before the ACT exam resulting in her best semester grade point ever.Janeth, 8 lessons with Angela
Great Tutor- Very Understanding
Angela is a great tutor, she is very understanding to change. We started using Angela for ACT tutoring, which was going really well, but my daughter changed her focus, and then wanted to focus on college essay writing and scholarship writing. She was very accommodating and helpful with the switch of focus. Would definitely recommend her.Laura, 4 lessons with Angela
Despite the short amount of time my son had left before his last test, Angela was able to give him tips and strategies that helped him tremendously on his ACT test. I believe her tutoring, tips and strategies made a huge difference which resulted in a much better score. One on one tutoring is a much better alternative than taking ACT classes, which my son took too. Angela will definitely tutor my daughter before she takes her ACT. I would highly recommend her. She was very easy to work with and accommodated my son's crazy schedule. Thanks Angela!Hyacinth, 7 lessons with Angela
