“Mrs. Paul was a passionate teacher. Her students would laugh because so often after introducing a mathematical problem to us, she would rub her hands together, smile big, and say, “Ooooohhhhhh! I LOVE this one! This one is SO good!” She was in love with math, and it, in turn, made us a little more affectionate for it then we probably normally would have been.
The love, energy, and passion she had for her subject were contagious to her students. She applied math to real-life situations and made us realize the importance of understanding math. She was full of stories and scenarios that helped us look at math as something to experience, not just random numbers situated on a homework sheet.
But perhaps the thing that made me respect Mrs. Paul the most was that she took the time to get to know us. She made learning personal. Math was definitely one of my weakest subjects in high school, but I can also say that it was one of my favorites. Not many people can say that their favorite and weakest subject was the same subject, but I can. This was possible because of Mrs. Paul. She went out of her way to provide extra time to help her students.
She never got frustrated with us, even when we wanted to give up. She was patient and was intent on providing the best learning experience possible for her students, all the while understanding that each student was different and had different needs.”

Having Mrs. Paul as not only my son’s Chemistry and Calculus teacher, but also his SAT tutor has been one of the best decisions I made for him during his high school career.
As a homeschool student, it can often be challenging to find advanced placement level classes, but I knew my son needed that challenge. I happened to stumble upon an article about Mrs. Paul’s tutoring practice and her credentials alone implored me to find out more.
From the way she presents the material to the student to the manner in which she connects with the student on a personal level, she is truly amazing. This experience extracted a love and deep understanding of the material that I do not believe my son experienced prior to his junior year.
Whenever he was in an environment that required high-level math and chemistry skills, he quickly and easily rose to the occasion and was identified as a student with a depth of knowledge above and beyond many of his peers. She instilled a great confidence in his ability to conquer any math. And it was this confidence, coupled with Miss Angela‘s deep knowledge and understanding of math, that allowed my son to reach his goal of achieving a 700 on the SAT in math.
We could not be more pleased that we connected with Mrs. Paul. I would highly recommend her to any student who is seeking a more in-depth approach to math and science.
