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...
Reviews
We needed someone who is well equipped to help my daughter with the SSAT, and Angela definitely fit the bill. It is clear she has significant teaching experience and expertise in this exam as well.
- Jed D. from Atlanta, GA
Angela is very thorough, patient and knowledgeable. She taught my daughter to think critically in preparation for ACT testing. Easy to work with.
- Shamala N. from Papillion, NE
Angela is very professional and knowledgeable about SSAT prep. She can also provide strategies and coaching for private school interviews. My son finds the sessions enjoyable and helpful, and that is quite an endorsement from a 13 year old boy doing an hour and a half math tutoring session! We recommend Angela without reservation. She is excellent!

So far, Tutor Angela has taught me some handy tricks and tips for analogies, synonyms, and reading on the SSAT. She always answers my questions and she is patient. I feel like I have improved as far as reading, analogies, and synonyms goes. She is the best tutor that I have had so far for SSAT prep. Angela from Juneau, AK

My son loves to work with Angela. He normally does not say much about how the classes were but every time he finishes lesson with her, he cannot stop talking how the session went. We are so lucky to find her.

Mrs Angela has been working with me on SSAT tutoring. Most recently, we have been working on my weakest areas--vocab & reading. She is a great tutor. She is helpful, patient, but is gently stern enough to support and encourage me while reminding me to take time, read the question, ask myself what is being asked, and then answer. She is also showing me where I am making errors and having me talk myself through it so that I can do it when she is not there. I have more confidence now.
- Ottrell E. from Atlanta, GA
Angela tutors my son and he states he is learning new ways to take the SAT test and some great tips. He said Angela helps him a lot and he enjoys working with her.
- Javona J. from Mckinney, TX
Angela is very professional and accommodating, she works with the parent and the child to set goals and help your child achieve them and prepare for standardized testing.
- Kia C. from Waldorf, MD
We just had our first session with Angela and my sons have both said they feel they can get a higher score after just one session. I look forward to seeing their improvement. Angela is very articulate and thoughtful and has many good tips for how to improve SAT scores. Very pleased so far.
- Jordan M. from Barrington, RI
My son recently had his first SSAT prep session with Angela. I feel very confident that working with Angela will make a big difference in his readiness for the test. She is highly organized and knowledgeable about the nature of the content, as well as typical student approaches/behaviors when taking the SSAT. I really appreciated how she checked with him to see what his reasoning was when selecting an answer. She conveys a strong sense of expertise while at the same time respect for my son's thinking.
- Dinorah M. from San Francisco, CA
The whole experience has been empowering and positive! Angela is organized, thorough, and has such insight on how to best help my daughter with the ACT testing. My daughter has substantially increased her practice scores since starting tutoring sessions with Angela. From our first conversation, we absolutely knew that her kind and patient approach would be the best approach to navigating the test prep. She always leaves feeling empowered and confident moving forward. We feel so lucky to have met Angela and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone and we have to friends!
- Michelle T. from Altadena, CA
Angela has been helping me for the past month, and she's provided me with tons of useful tips, and practices I would've never thought to use beforehand. I have struggled with math for as long as I can remember and she's opened up a new perspective that has been slowly helping me analyze and solve problems better! She does a lot to make sure I understand the material, and that I get enough practice so that soon, my skills will be significantly stronger than before when retaking my SAT!
- Shania V. from Chelsea, MA
We were nervous to try online tutoring but my daughter came out of her first lesson so excited and encouraged. Angela was able to connect with her and help her so much already. We are excited to continue SSAT prep lessons with her!
- Sharon T. from Grafton, MA
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!
- Colleen W. from Winchester, MA
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.
- Stephen B. from Boston, MA
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.
- Shirley T. from Hayward, CA
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!
- Deborah W. from Medford, MA
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.
- Jen C. from Burlington, MA
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!
- Heather D. from Ocean City, NJ
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.
