Teaching is one of my passions. As a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, I treasure education. In fact, I agree with Benjamin Franklin, the founder of the University of Pennsylvania, who said, ?An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.? Education has been the pathway to a more satisfying and empowered life for just about everyone I know.

I am a former teacher and homeschooler with decades of teaching experience at all levels (K-12). I have a B. S. in Education, with a min...

My daughter found Angela to be an excellent teacher. They focused on improving grammar for the SAT. The tutoring session was very last minute (3 Kaplan class cancellations--no make up planned for 2 missed classes & her test is in 6 days!) We are very grateful for Angela?s excellent tutoring. It has made a big difference. So glad for the Wyzant platform to find tutoring resources. On a side note, I would NOT recommend Kaplan prep to anyone based on our experience. Thank you!

Great tutor, super patient, professional, flexible and works very well with my daughter. We were lucky to find Angela! We will continue to use her.

Angela has been so incredible. She's providing SSAT help and her strategies have made such a huge difference. My daughter was convinced she could never be good at the verbal and reading comprehension sections but in just two sessions with Angela, my daughter's mindset has completely changed.

I was a little hesitant to a hire a tutor who only works remotely, but Angela is fantastic! Not only is she knowledgeable and patient, but she finds a way to make the time fly by. She is open to questions and has many ways to explain each concept! My daughter is really enjoying her tutoring lessons!

Angela did an excellent job of preparing my daughter for her SSAT. In just two months, after having classes with Angela, my daughter?s SSAT scores increased 30%. As an expert, Angela was so knowledgeable about what she was teaching. She taught my daughter very helpful strategies for the test. and I would highly recommend her to anyone that needs additional academic support. It was a big relief to find someone with her knowledge, patience, and ability to encourage. She was also easy to reach, and was always on time. I am planning to have her as my daught?s SAT tutor too.

I was very skeptical about getting an online SAT tutor for my 16-year-old daughter. My daughter was very skeptical too. Ten minutes into our initial session with Angela, all of our fears were put to rest. Angela efficiently gets right to the heart of what your student needs to focus on to be more successful in their academic endeavors. She also has a sense of humor which is a wonderful ?ice breaker? and facilitates teenage motivation. My daughter has really enjoyed her sessions with Angela and looks forward to the next one! Quoting my daughter when I asked how she felt about Angela so far, she said that, ?Angela is very intelligent and thorough.? I highly recommend Angela and I am so happy that I found her!

We appreciated Angela's attention to detail. She provided work for our son to accomplish during his non-tutoring hours and gave us a complete assessment of the session. This was very helpful to us and allowed us to monitor the progress. In some cases, intervening to make sure work was completed before the next session. Any parent would be very lucky to have her assistance in tutoring their child.

I have a lot of experience hiring tutors and as you probably know, you really don't know what to expect until the lessons start. It's not often that a tutor exceeds your goals but Angela is the most professional, hard-working tutor I have ever hired. She wastes no time assessing what is needed with kindness and polish. I will definitely hire her again.
- Debbie D. from Cockeysville, MD
My son has been helped by an amazing tutor, one who explains everything very thoroughly. We are very delightful to have found such an amazing tutor. I was skeptical of online tutoring at first but Angela does a very good job of teaching students through it.

Angela has been working with my son who struggles with Math. He has difficulty with short- term memory so remembering formulas and such does not come easy. Angela has been patient and has gone over the basics with him to ensure he has a solid grasp before moving on to the more difficult subject matter. He enjoys his sessions with Angela and is becoming more confident.

Angela is working with my daughter K, on ACT preparation. She is very thorough and careful in her approach to helping students. K was at a loss on how to improve her math and science scores and really got a boost of confidence just after the first session with Angela. Angela diagnosed her issues quickly and designed a plan for review and practice. Her experience with students and familiarity with test prep shows in her approach. Angela is patient and responsive to K's questions and concerns. K is looking forward to more lessons with Angela-- and now believes that an improvement in her scores is really achievable.
- Monifa M. from Jamaica, NY
My son is very happy with Angela; his words to describe his first session were: She is fun, she knows her material, I am really going to like preparing for the SSAT's! So far, he is enjoying his classes..
- Maria K. from Pelham, NH
She has a wealth of knowledge and showed me several techniques to prep for the SSAT. She taught me various ways to answer questions during the SSAT to help me with synonyms and analogies. I have no doubt my score on the SSAT will increase significantly after Angela's help.

Originally, we went to a local college SAT program which is very similar to the standard SAT programs. That was a completely waste of money, it was like paying money for a homework buddy. We then started doing some research online and found wyzant and Angela. My daughter started working with Angela late January to prepare for her ACT in April. She changed my daughter's life with standardize testing. My daughter has always been a hard worker but never a great tester. We explained the situation to Angela and immediately she came up with a lesson plan for my daughter. She is very flexible with scheduling and each lesson is very structured. She spent a lot of time on explaining concept and techniques on how to tackle the problems. Angela worked extensively with my daughter on the English, Reading and Writing. Angela has a very encouraging approach with her teaching and was even able to help my daughter with managing stress and test anxiety. My daughter enjoyed working with Angela so much that she has been applying what she learned from each lesson to her day to day school work. My daughter took the first ACT practice test in the beginning of the Tutor session, and she scored 25 out of 36. My daughter took the last 2 practice tests right before the real ACT test this Sat, she scored between 33-34 out of 36. She gained tremendous confidence in taking the test now. I was very skeptical about tutoring in the beginning because of the cost, but this was one of the best investment we made. My daughter didn't just benefit from the few lessons of learning how to take standardize testing, but a lifetime knowledge and skill sets. Thank you Ms. Angela! We will definitely be in touch in the future.

Good insight on ACT test taking. Covering question types, what the test is looking for, and how to maximize time in the right places on the ACT test. Very happy with how the preparation is going so far.
- Jan N. from Waconia, MN
My daughter, Brooke, has spent just 4hrs with Angela and she is so happy. Brooke has said that Ms. Angela has already instilled confidence in her as she explains and works thoroughly on a problem until Brooke gets it right. Brooke will then be provided homework to practice those problems she had difficulty with. We feel that we have been so fortunate to have been able to fit into Ms Angela's schedule.
- Karen C. from Brandon, FL
There is no doubt your son or daughter will find Angela's style of tutoring comforting and personal. She knows her stuff and is able to relate to her students in a very kind yet intellectual way!
- Brian M. from Waltham, MA
Angela is a fountain of knowledge, she is very patient and punctual. I have only used her twice so far and already I'm feeling confident about my upcoming exams. Thanks Angela!!
- Merrillee L. from Chicago, IL
ANGELA is helping my daughter prepare for the SSAT test. We would have been lost without her. The practice material has helped a lot. As a mother, I like the report I get after each tutoring session.
- Claudine K. from Boxford, MA
I had an excellent session with Angela tonight. She is an excellent communicator and a very, very, very patient person. She is a wonderful, intelligent professor. I have learned some valuable information in solving problems that I was clueless about before. I'm looking forward to my next session with Angela!
