About LaTonia

I am an elementary school principal who is passionate about teaching and learning! I am a life long learner with a dual Bachelor's degree in English and History, a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction, and a plethora of certifications including Elementary Grades 1-8, Social Studies 1 -8, Computer Literacy, English 6-12, Supervisor of Student Teaching, Reading Specialist, and Educational Leadership.

If your child is struggling with Common Core Math, I can help as I train teachers in the implementation of Singapore Math (CPA Approach) and Eureka Math.

If your child is a struggling reader, I can help. As a reading specialist, I am qualified to test your child to identify specific reading deficits and create an individualized intervention plan to address these student specific deficits.

As a certified reading specialist, I know what it takes to teach students to read. Phonics is a foundation; and when it is taught in a systematic way, students are able to read to learn. I've worked as the Response to Interventionist Coordinator at my school, testing students to identify reading deficits and creating individualized intervention plans to address those deficits. I've been trained in the implementation of Project Read (Dyslexia Training Program) and worked to improve the reading levels of students with characteristics of dyslexia for 10+ years.

As an elementary school principal, I train teachers in Common Core standards, grades 3 - 5. I supervise and evaluate the teaching and learning of the Common Core standards as principal and instructional leader. I have trained teachers in multiple strategies and programs geared toward the mastery and learning of the standards.

Schedule your lessons now! Summer remediation is a great way to fill learning gaps that cause students to struggle throughout the school year. Summer enrichment is a great way to give your child a head start on the skills and concepts he/she will be learning next school year.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Common Core

As a current elementary school principal, I am the instructional leader of my school. As such, I provide professional development for teachers in the analysis and instruction of Common Core State Standards. As part of this PD, I provide model lessons for teachers in which I work directly with students. Additionally, I write Core lesson plans that are implemented by teachers and evaluated by me. My area of expertise is Common Core grades 3-5.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have current K- 8 teacher certification. I taught 6th grade for 11 years. I have taught summer school for 7+ years. I have privately tutored students grades 3-8 for 20+ years.

Phonics

In addition to earning certification as a Reading Specialist, I've been trained in Project Read (phonics -based reading program commonly used with students with characteristics with dyslexia). Prior to becoming the principal at my school, I worked as the RTI Coordinator, working directly with students with reading deficits. Most of these students were provided a phonics-based intervention. These interventions were successful in teaching students to read.
