About Antoinette

I graduated from Old Dominion University with my masters in Education with a focus in Supervision and Administration. I am from Virginia, where I began teaching and then moved to North Carolina and continued teaching here. I have enjoyed working with 2nd and 3rd grade teams that share the same vision-helping students become equipped for today's education. I have always been very passionate about preparing the youth for 21st century societal expectations. Scholars need to know what it takes to be well rounded individuals.

I have always had a passion for helping others so I spent additional time last school year tutoring 3rd grade scholars after school. We focused on strengthening their reading comprehension. All scholars showed tremendous growth in their language arts scores by the end of the year. That tutoring experience gave me another opportunity to have smaller groups and extended interaction with those students in order to strengthen their foundational needs.

I also have experience helping scholars who have needed additional support in language arts, being able to identify their most foundational needs. Being in charge of such a task gave me the opportunity to truly analyze student data and find the best practices to improve student ability in the classroom and preparation for EOG testing. All of my experience has shown me the value of creating trust between scholars and teachers. When scholars know that you care about their success, they perform at such a better rate.

I have years of experience with technology-based math programs and using manipulatives as intervention for scholars to strengthen their math needs. Math tends to be a bit difficult for scholars to understand due to the steps involved in problem solving. I enjoy being able to break apart a scenario before putting it all together for understanding.

I spent last year as an English Language Arts teacher. Although I've taught other subjects in the past, it was very beneficial to focus on one subject. It gave me the opportunity to really invest time in bettering how I reach scholars with their most foundational skills. Reading and Language Arts are the driving force for all other subjects, so when that is mastered other courses don't seem to be as challenging.

Contact me to help your scholar succeed! I truly enjoy being able to work one on one with scholars and be able to witness improvement week by week. I am very patient and know that it's okay to work as a team and have someone by your side helping your scholar stay ahead in the his or her academics.

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.

Elementary Math

I understand the benefit of using manipulatives to help math become more clear. I use a variety of resource to reach my scholars who are challenged in math. This is my 4th year teaching and I spent a year as the case manager for 3rd grade intervention students. I focused on ways to help reach them and made sure interventions were being put in place.

Reading

I have a degree in psychology and PK-3 endorsement. I also have my masters in Educational Leadership. I taught taught 3rd grade ELA as a departmentalized teacher last year which gave me the opportunity to focus on one subject. Last year I also tutored 12 students who were reading below grade level after school from February to June in preparation for the EOG. We focused on reading comprehension. This year I am teaching all core and I'm looking for tutoring opportunities.
