About Angela

I am a Cornell student that loves working with students of all ages! I have experience tutoring elementary and middle school students in basic math and in writing, including both essays and grammar. But I am also interested in helping high school students in these fields as well. Over the summer, I taught English to high school students at an international summer language program in Budapest, Hungary.

With perfect scores in SAT I writing and math, and a near-perfect score in SAT II Math, I have a lot of experience with testing strategies and problem-solving. I was also the managing editor of my high school's newspaper and currently write for Cornell's newspaper.

I study economics and government at Cornell, so I incorporate math into my curriculum and write analytical essays on a daily basis. I have completed up to AP Calc BC in high school and am enrolled to take further college-level mathematics for my economics studies. In high school, I was in the honors and AP English tracks and received a score of 5 on the AP English Literature exam and a 12 on the SAT I essay section (both perfect scores), so I can help with essay editing, brainstorming, and writing in general. I have helped middle and high school students in the past with essay editing. Generally, I make corrections to drafted essays and provide suggestions and feedback as students make edits. I have also helped with daily journal entries for younger students and beginning writers and make grammatical edits for new writers and entries.

I am a huge fan of education and learning and want to create a personalized lesson plan for students, whether it is through problem sets for math, teaching testing strategies, or practice in writing. Students interested in SAT math or writing prep, elementary math, prealgebra, or algebra I should have some form of textbook which I can help solve problems that students are confused about. I can also help students get ahead by teaching material in following chapters of the text. I also assign additional problem sets either from the textbook or from handouts based on if the student desires or needs the extra practice.

My schedule is pretty flexible, but as a current college student, I can only take online students at the time. I am willing to help your student in whatever manner possible, and I hope to make learning fun for them. Please contact me if you have any questions or are interested in setting up the first meeting!

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.

Algebra 1

I have experience tutoring young students Algebra I. I prefer that students are prepared with some form of textbook or problem set book, but I can also provide additional homework problems if needed or desired. I have math experience up to the Calculus BC level and can tutor up to middle students.

Elementary Math

I have experience working with young students in elementary math. I can also provide additional problem sets if desired or needed by the student on an individualized basis. I have experience in mathematics up to the college level and can help in basic math skills for young students.

Prealgebra

I have experience teaching young students prealgebra. As a college student, I've completed up to high levels of calculus so I am able to teach and aid in basic math subjects. I can provide additional problem sets as homework if desired or needed by students.

SAT Math

I have received perfect scores on the SAT math section multiple times and have up to college-level math experience. As a college student, I am still knowledgeable of the skills and abilities needed to master the math section. The SAT Math section can be aced through identifying the type of question and applying skills needed. I will tutor for SAT Math by using the student's textbook as well as providing additional problem sets if on a personalized basis.

SAT Writing

I have gotten a perfect score on the SAT Writing section and received a 12 on the essay portion. Writing is a passion of mine, and I can help with grammar as well as essay-editing and brainstorming.
