About Angela

I was a Lecturer of Psychology at Hesser College of New Hampshire for 5 years. Before teaching, I spent 10+ years as a vision researcher at Harvard and its affiliates and am an authority on qualitative and quantitative research methods. I also have experience teaching APA style and have had several of my research projects published in academic journals.

I am a patient and compassionate instructor and enjoy sharing my knowledge with others and developing student's critical thinking skills. Most of all, I enjoy sharing the light bulb moment when a student grasps a concept that previously eluded them.
