About Angela


Bio

I was a Lecturer for 5 years at Hesser College and Chester College in multiple subjects. Before teaching, I spent 10+ years as a vision researcher at Harvard and its affiliates.

In addition to teaching at the college level, I also homeschooled my son through middle school using an accredited curriculum. His exemplary test scores for curriculum progress and the ISEE standardized tests demonstrated both his learning and my teaching ability in all middle school subject matter.

I am a patient and compassionate instructor and enjoy sharing my knowledge with others and developing student's confidence. I particularly enjoy helping students with sciences, algebra, geometry, and composition writing.

buona conversazione, buona l'insegnante

Volevo qualcuno che avrebbe parlare abbastanza lentamente a me, che ho potuto capire e rispondere e imparare. Angela met my expectations perfectly and I think we're a good match for where I am in my journey to learn Italian!

Lisa, 1 lesson with Angela

Prepared: Psych for nursing

Angela was on time, well prepared, knew what she was talking about, gave new strategies to study and I felt well connected to her, was confused with the class and got me on the right track. Thanks

Jane, 2 lessons with Angela

Very flexible

Angela has been very flexible with meeting my brain injured 28 year old son to play Chess and other games. I'm very pleased with her, and my son seems to enjoy their time together.
