Angie taught me a lot different things to get ready for the match section of the cbest . She is very patient and good at explaining things . She taught me a lot methods and some tricks that help me remember things . If I could I would have her help me with all sections of the cbest . Thats how good she is.

Angie has established a great relationship with my son. He continues to have a positive attitude with working on his math practice.

Angie is patient and flexible and my son, who really struggles with reading (possible dyslexia) loves reading with her. He has improved almost 2 grade levels this year. I'd give 6 stars if I could.

Angie helped me SO much in just 2 short months. I came to Angie for help in my math so I can score better on my ASVAB. When I started with Angie I barely knew how to multiply so we started from there and eventually I knew most of it but definitely could not do it all without the help of Angie. She was very patient and always made sure I knew each concept before moving on the next. During each session Angie would write down concepts I wasn't sure about or struggled with and the next time I came she had worksheets ready for me to practice at home. Those worksheets helped a ton and say I didn't understand the worksheets at home even after talking about them when she gave them to me Angie was more than happy to help me understand it in the next session. Thank you so much Angie for making me feel much more confident about my test!

Our daughter learned the first English words with Angie. She is very creative and our daughter had a lot of fun in learning with her. We recommend.

My 4 year old has had 6 lessons with Angie now working mainly on phonics and a little bit on numbers to prepare her for an assessment test for Kindergarten. Considering all the information Angie has to cram into my daughter's head in such a short period of time, she has been doing wonderful. She's been patient and understanding, constantly switching up the activities to keep my daughter focused and interested in learning.

Angie has been a pleasure to work with. She is very patient and understanding while helping me to grasp concepts in English grammar, punctuation, and basic writing skills. She has sought out extra material for me to use in addition to using my assigned class textbook. I highly recommend her.

We have been in the San Jose area for a little over of 2 months from Eastern Europe with 2 kids ? 11 and 10 years old. Kids were studying English for some time before but had trouble speaking and had read only 2 small books before. We were really lucky to have Angie as a tutor for our kids for this period of intensive language training since we achieved tremendous results for such a short period. Both kids started to speak and are not afraid to communicate with adults and kids and both started to read English books on daily basis (40+ books in total for the period). Angie did a really great job in training the kids in reading, writing and speaking. I only hope that we were able to stay in the area longer to have more lessons. We are really happy from the results achieved and hope this will be the foundation for further English study for our kids! Highly recommend Angie as a tutor!

Thank you Angie S. for tutoring me in math. I was unable to comprehend the simplest terms and you helped give me a glimmer of hope. I hope to come back soon and pick up where we left off. I would highly recommend your services to anyone having problems in math. Thanks!!

Angie is a fantastic tutor! She cares about the success of her students. Our son has been studying for the ASVAB test and needed some extra help. Angie and I had a great conversation about my son and his needs, and ultimately a plan was formed. My son has grown confidence in his skills and I rarely see him without his study books. He has become a studious young man with a new "can-do" attitude! We are so thankful to Angie for listening to our son's needs, taking them seriously, and caring about our son's success. Thank you, Angie!

Out of desperation to find a tutor for my 5 year old daughter, I came across WyzAnt and Angie S. Let me tell you what a perfect match this was! My daughter was not accepted into Stratford School due to her lack of knowledge in the English language, and comprehension of phonics. My wife and I were devastated. Not so much that she was not accepted, but rather the fact that she is to start kindergarten in 2 months, and we don't want her to miss out on curriculum because she doesn't understand what the teacher is saying. She simply does not get the English exposure she needs to thrive in school at home. We found WyzAnt, and immediately I went to work; combing through profiles of individuals that met the needs of my daughter. I came across Angie S., and was instantly confident that I had found the best. However, I still had to close my wife, the skeptic, that I found a complete stranger to coach our child. I sat her down in front of the computer, and asked her to critically comb through the profiles and read them to their entirety, and let me know who she came up with. She spun her chair around and said, "I like Angie S." I was immediately convinced we had found a winner! Our first meeting was great, as I let her know I was going to be in my car in front of her house, since my wife was still nervous. I started my work day in the car waiting, making calls, and answering emails while my daughter was in session. I came up to the door, and heard my daughter conversing with Angie, and was overcome with happiness that she was embracing the lesson. It has only been three lessons, and I can already feel the confidence in speaking with my daughter in English. Thanks a million Angie! We look forward to her future lessons!
