Teaching since:
June 2009

I learned to crochet in grade school, taught myself to knit and learned to sew from my mother at a very early age. Teaching grade school children/students is my passion. I believe learning to knit and sew can help students learn a level of patience and persistence that will help them in their school work.
In October, I retook and passed the NCLEX, and I have restored my nursing license to active status. I would love to tutor nursing students of all levels. My professional background is in Pediatrics - especially Pediatric Critical Care. I'm especially passionate about helping nursing students that need help with basic math/algebra.

We have only had one lesson, and my daughter (7) keeps asking when Angela comes back - she loved her lesson. Angela is a very patient teacher.

Angela and I talked about what I wanted to accomplish with these lessons. We talked about what my current skills are and what I needed to learn sock knitting.
For my first class we started on my socks. I got set up and I went home with my “homework” and a sense of accomplishment. I am on my way to finish my first pair!

It was a great start. Angela answered my questions and helped me understand what my next steps would be. She was assigned homework 😊,

Angela has an easy style of instruction. "Relearning" how to sew, and honestly, she has taught me things I NEVER knew before. Super patient and thorough. Angela teaches you exactly what you are capable at your level of experience.

WE just had our first lesson with Angela do she is awesome. After she left my daughter told me four times how much she liked her.

Angela is awesome! She is kind, patient, organized, gives clear instructions and very easy to work with. My dogs barked the entire time and my home is less than white-glove clean; but she puts you at ease and you never feel talked down too or judged in any way. You will not be sorry for choosing her as your teacher.
