About Angela

Having taught primary grades for more than 12 years, I am experienced in early elementary needs. I recently taught 2 years in the United Arab Emirates and as such, am also equipped to help your student with speaking English if necessary. I am highly qualified in teaching reading and that is my passion. If your student struggles with reading, then I am the tutor for you. Improvements in reading will also improve scores in other areas- math, social studies and sciences.

Most of my teaching experience is at the preschool and kindergarten level. I also have some experience in first grade and a few years of high school aged students. I have a solid foundation in reading fundamentals, but can also assist in basic math concepts. Other areas where I am strong are handwriting and creative writing. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

I have had more than 10 years experience in primary grades teaching basic math concepts.

I have had more than 10 years experience teaching reading to preschool and kindergarten age students, and experience tutoring students in this area.

I have had more than 10 years experience teaching handwriting to primary grade students.

I have had more than 10 years experience teaching phonics to preschool and kindergarten age students, and experience tutoring students in this area.

I encourage you to contact me for my services as I am a highly qualified teacher looking for a better way to service students in a more personable atmosphere without the pressure of tests and grading. I am good at what I do and I excel at it. You will not be disappointed with your choice. I am honest and will inform you exactly where your student stands, whether that is good news or bad. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

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.

Handwriting

I have taught for 12 years. I have taught my preschool, kindergarten and first grade students proper letter formation verbally and through written practice. I teach them the proper "location" of each letter and how to form it properly so it doesn't look like circles and sticks stuck together randomly. My students always have the best handwriting. They know that if I can't read it, I can't grade it!

Phonics

I have taught for 12 years. I have taught mainly preschool and kindergarten. I understand the foundation of reading. If you do not know how to properly make the sounds of each letter or letter combination, you will struggle to read and to write. I have even taught Arabic speaking Emirati students ages 2-6 how to read English. I always start with the basics- letter recognition and letter sounds. It is a process, just like when you build a house. Start with a solid foundation and work your way up. You wouldn't teach a student algebra if they didn't know how to add. Same concept.
