About Angela

I graduate this Summer (2016) from University of Houston with a B.S. in Psychology and minor in English Literature. Maintain 4.0 in the last 45 course hours taken since returning Spring of last year (meaning where 15 hours is considered full-time I took 18 hours while working full-time and raising my 2 preschoolers).

I am an excellent tutor and proud to say it. I do not mean this in a boastful way, but combining my aptitude in psychology and English literature, I am built to explain and understand a plethora of topics in any number of ways. I tailor my tutoring to you or your child's learning method: visual, verbal, written, mixture, all of the above. I have worked with students with Aspergers and have the ability to sense emotional needs (such as comprehension, apprehension, confusion, etc) which doesn't sound that special, but considering how easy it is to think you understand something--I wont allow students to walk away only partially prepared!

I am a mother of 2, have been a childcare provider for over 10 years, am a birth doula...needless to say I understand families and the value of your time, intelligence, and futures.

Courses: All psychology courses, English literature, K-12 education across subjects, but feel free to approach me with any topic. I will not accept a job I am not 100% confident in. Thank you for your time and best of luck on your academic journey!

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 taken, and aced, advanced algebra 1 courses. I also ran a tutoring group for college-level math (algebra 1 based).

Anatomy

I love human anatomy and my primary focus in college has been neuroanatomy and psychological function. I am pursuing my Ph.D. in Clinical Neuropsychology.

I have taken and tutored on: general human anatomy (skeleton, integumentary system, connective tissue, organs, etc.), anatomical subsystems and their functions (i.e. how a nephron in the kidney works, how the GI secreted hormone ghrelin works within the hypothalamus to stop hunger), and medical terminology. I can explain the nervous system from how a neuron fires to how the limbic system works and why.

Understanding the brain and body can feel daunting, but when broken down into smaller, manageable parts, the terms and connections fit together like a beautiful puzzle you can easily recall. Similar to learning how the chain/pedal/wheel work together on a bike--once you understand it everything just makes sense--same goes for anatomy.

Psychology

I earned a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Houston (GPA: 3.97, Psych Major GPA: 3.79).

During college I volunteered as a tutor for 11 unique psychology courses with Psi Chi, the International Honor Society in Psychology. Each course and student required a unique approach, which I learned how to measure and incorporate during my classes, and content that was accessible for varied student schedules including in-person, online, and short notice. Classes covered: Intro to Psych, Methods, Statistics, Abnormal, Industrial-Organizational, Social, Physiological, Cognitive, Clinical, Personality, & Cultural psychology. I also received an A in Latino Psychology.

I currently work as a research assistant with the Anxiety & Health Research Laboratory at the University of Houston where I am advancing my psychology education through hands-on administration of test measurements in ongoing psychological research.

Writing

My bachelor's degree in psychology includes a minor in English. Related courses included material on grammar, linguistics, fiction writing, analytical/comparative essays, research papers (15+ pages), and professional writing including items like CVs, meeting minutes, e-mails, and proposals. Writing is also a hobby of mine. I am well-studied in APA and MLA format.

As a tutor, I frequently proofread and edit the aforementioned documents for peers and students. Working at the Anxiety & Health Research Lab at the University of Houston I assist with professionally written research articles. I typically use google docs to participate in the writing process; there I am able to comment, edit, and proof ongoing writing assignments.
