About Josette

As a teacher with 22 years experience, I know that the most recent changes in the state's curriculum have been challenging for all. So many parents are frustrated with the demands of helping their children, without knowing how to maneuver the new Common Core Curriculum.

As a classroom teacher, I led have led my students to success in testing by making sure they are very firmly grounded in all their basic foundational skills. When students are confident, they will achieve. I would love to assist your child in building their confidence and reaching their full academic potential.

In my current role as an Curriculum Facilitator, I teach teachers how to understand the teaching standards and use those skills to instruct students. I believe in the use of manipulatives in demonstrating difficult skills, but put a large focus on making sure students have a full grasp on foundational skills needed from previous years of learning.

Common Core encompasses all aspects of the learning structure. Ensuring students' are able to build upon what they have previously learned is a very important component to moving students towards academic success.

For the last three years, Guilford County School has used a phonics program called Fundations. I have had the privilege of teaching this information for the past seven years due to my work at two schools who saw the value of this program long before the district requirement. Through this program, I have seen students grow at exponential rates. I can help your child reach their reading goals using this program.

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 an Elementary Teacher of 22 years, I have taught literacy skills to students throughout my career. As a Teacher Leader, I have been trained in the intricacies of Common Core and am skilled in teaching the standards in which students must be proficient.

Phonics

As a classroom teacher, I received training and provided instruction to students on the phonics program currently being used in Guilford County Schools. With great success, my students became fluent readers through the use of this program. In my current role as a Teacher Leader, I assist other teachers in providing this instruction in a way that will lead to student success and reading fluency.

Study Skills

One of the most important ways students can work towards guaranteeing their own success is by being organized. Teaching students how to manage their time and study habits can mean the difference between an unproductive, chaotic time for both parents and students and time in which students are able to confidently and independently complete evening studies. I will teach your child how to structure their evenings so they will avoid the frustration and move smoothly through homework time.
