About Angela

I have taught Kindergarten, 2nd grade and 3rd grade students in private and public school situations since 1996. I am originally from Oklahoma and have lived in California, Nevada, Texas, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait and Nevada. I have 4 grown children. Children must be able to read in order to be successful in other subjects, so I focus on reading and branch out to the other subjects. Phonics is important but must be relevant to what is being read so that comprehension occurs. In mathematics, a combination of hands-on and written practice helps students understand the concept.

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 taught primary-level students within private and public school environments since 1996. I believe in whole language based on reading is the best way to teach language. Proper handwriting is important as well in communicating in written form. Math must use a combination of hands-on plus written form.

Handwriting

I focus heavily on proper letter and number formation when teaching. I believe it is crucial in early years to teach proper letters and numbers, which makes it a natural progression as children mature. Proper formation of letters and numbers assures credit for correct answers and spelling where malformed numbers and letters can cause problems.

Phonics

I have taught Kindergarten for 4 years in addition to my B.S. degree in Early Childhood Education. I prefer using whole language to instruct reading and language. The students should read a passage and learn spelling and phonics associated with the text or concepts.
