About Angela

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.
