I worked for one of the big named chains for a few years and sadly realized people were paying a ton for a service that was not the best to help their child.
I quit work there and started my own tutoring business at home where I could charge a lot less (low overhead) and work with the students in groups of two instead of three. Even my one-on-one tutoring is less than the chains change for three students at a time!
I have been tutoring for 20 years now and have helped numerous students to succeed. I have to go to a Harvard graduate school student, a GED student I have been tutoring for 20 years now and have helped numerous students to succeed. I have tutored a Harvard graduate school, taught twin elementary students to read, and everything in between. I enjoy tutoring math the most, anything from beginner math all the way to geometry and algebra.
I am a certified teacher with a degree in special education and a minor in elementary education. I was teacher of the year 2017 at Walnut Grove Christian school, where I currently teach.
I was also teacher of the year at Sylvan Learning Center in 1994.
Angie is an excellent teacher, she has helped our daughter a lot. Angie was able to identify our daughter’s weakness in both math & reading and help her. Our daughter’s confidence and knowledge have improved a lot in the 5 or 6 sessions she has had so far.
I highly recommend AMF Tutorial. My son has been attending AMF tutorial for over 4 years now and his progress has been amazing! We have seen a rise in test scores, school work and reading levels! Mrs Angie really cares about the success of her students. Highly recommend her.
Angie became not only such a helpful resource for me, but became like family. Past tutors had made me feel stressed about math, but she set me up for success and made sure I felt comfortable with the material. She is such a kind soul and I highly recommend!
Angie is caring and is very knowledgable with many subjects. She gives a good plan for the students to map out to help them learn quickly and easily.
For first meeting I have the parents and student come in together, sit down and talk to me. We discuss strengths and weaknesses. If they are a reading conprehension client I have them read a simple text to me. If they are a math client, I have them take a math assessment to complete at home to help me have a better understanding of what level they are at.
All of this is free of charge.

As a child I knew I wanted to be a teacher. I worked with students from the time I started high school.
All kinds! - I have worked with gifted and talented students as well as students with learning disabilities. In the classroom setting, I have taught learning disabled students as well as academically advanced students all the way down to severe and profound mentally challenged students.
Every child can learn! It’s just being able to reach them, to give them the confidence in themselves to help them achieve all that they are able to achieve.
This summer I am tutoring a lot of new students. Getting to see them grow in confidence and ability is so exciting to me. There are several I have that have been beaten down and felt very unsuccessful in school. Seeing the smile on their faces when they understand what they are doing, walking out of clas with their shoulders back, it makes me so proud of what I do.
Ask for a free consultation – if they are willing to give it you can tell they are truly interested in the students, and not just the money.
Also ask for references and check them. It is truly important if you’re trusting your child with an unknown adult.
- how much am I willing to spend?
- how much time am I willing to commit?
- am I ready to work hard so I get my “money’s worth”?
- will I focus and try my best in class sessions?
- do I really want to improve, even if it means hard work?
