About Angela

As a young child, I always knew I wanted to teach. The dream was realized August 8, 1997, when I became a 1st grade teacher. I absolutely loved teaching my young scholars how to read, write, add and most of all think! Through out my teaching career, I have taught elementary (1st, 2nd and 3rd grade) and middle school English. I believe that I am a facilitator for my scholar's learning journey. My job is to ascertain where their current educational needs are and then develop relevant and engaging lessons that will help bridge the gap within their learning.
In this day and time, most of the teaching has been downgraded to "teaching towards the test". While it has it merits, I believe that my number one priority is help foster and grow a young scholars desire to learn more and to deepen their critical thinking skills by asking the question 'why' and then searching for the "answer".

It is my belief that there are multiple ways/strategies to solve a mathematical problem. I have found success within my primary students with using manipulative, skits, rhymes and other strategies to help scholars grasp both the concept and then application of a math theory.

Fostering the love for reading and writing within a young scholar can be tricky. Books, tailored to their interests, must be used to "hook" them. Showing, through specific mini-lessons, how every child is an author, and can generate at least 40 small seed moments to write about has been quite successful in developing young writers. I incorporate a balanced reading, writing approach.

Learning how to the read is the requirement in order to be able to read to learn. I have developed a very user friendly phonics program that quickly develops a young child's decoding skills.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have had at least 5 years of direct teaching experience in all subjects on the elementary level. This exposure has come directly through my classroom teaching experience.

Phonics

As a first grade teacher, my students had to be able to decode words first, before they were able to read complex word families. As such, I have garnered a wealth of tools and strategies to help young readers learn, practice and remember the various vowel patterns, which in turn allow them to become fluent readers.

Reading

I am a firm believer that in order to improve reading, one must read often! If selected to tutor your child, I will determine your child's reading and interest level and then develop decoding and/or comprehension strategies that will help support him/her in becoming a better reader.
