About Antoinette

Teaching is a calling not a career!

TEACHING
In 19 years I have taught various maths to students pre-K through adult. Presently, I teach at an alternative high school in Alvin, Texas, where we help students make more positive choices for their futures in order to become productive citizens. This year my main classes are Geometry, Social Skills and AFP-academic future preparation. Also, as a Kumon Instructor, I taught pre-schoolers through adults math and reading.

BASKETBALL
By way of basketball scholarship, I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a BA in Communication/Business. There, under the tutelage of National Championship coach Gary Blair, the Ladyjacks and I revived the Program from the second worst team in the Nation (Sports Illustrated 1984) to our peak rank of 11 in most Nation polls (1988). From '86-'88, I led the Southland Conference in points and rebounds, with high stats in charges per game, steals, and field goal and free throw percentages. During my junior year I played with Athletes in Action's European tour team. During the summer we toured Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Yugoslavia.

After graduation, I played professionally throughout Europe, South America and the Middle East. A career ending knee injury forced my retirement. I earned my Secondary Mathematics Teaching Certification from the University of Houston Clear Lake (2002) and a Masters in Mathematics from Western Governors University (2010). Lastly, I am a 7-year cancer "Thriver!"

TUTORING
Learning HOW you learn best is key to how you study. Are you an auditory, kinesthetic, tactile, or verbal learner? Are you a global or analytical thinker? How do you process information? Knowing the answers to these questions (and a few others) will make a HUGE impact on your success. Why? Because it is the way you are wired. And when we are usually more successful in life when we pursue our natural wiring. Maybe Algebra, Geometry, EOC, Basketball and any other subject has been hard because you have not been using your strengths to help you learn it. Good news...we can fix this! Let's try it shall we?!

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.

Algebra 1

My experience includes more than seven years of teaching Algebra I, including preparing students for our Texas State exam, PSAT, SAT, and ACT.

Algebra 2

In 19 years I have taught various maths to students pre-K through adult. Presently, I teach at an alternative high school. This year I will teach Math Models with Applications and Algebra 2. Also, I taught pre-schoolers through adults various-level maths and reading.

Basketball

I currently coach a boys high school AAU team in the Pearland area-16U; and train individual male and female players 4th grade through college from various cities in the Houston metropolitan area.

EXPERIENCE
My success at Wichita Heights High School landed me the opportunity to attend Stephen F. Austin State University through a basketball scholarship.

I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a BA in Communication/Business. There, under the tutelage of the now National Championship Coach Gary Blair, the Ladyjacks and I revived the Program from the second worst team in the Nation (Sports Illustrated 1984) to our peak rank of 11 in most Nation polls (1988).

From '86-'88, I led the Southland Conference in points and rebounds, with high stats in charges per game, steals, field goals and free throw percentages. I earned many Southland Conference, State and National recognitions and awards, including Regional Kodak All-American. During my junior year I played with Athletes in Action's European tour team. During the summer we toured Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Yugoslavia.

After graduation, I played professionally throughout Europe, South America and the Middle East. A career ending knee injury in 1999 forced my retirement. After which I earned my Secondary Mathematics Teaching Certification from the University of Houston Clear Lake (2002) and a Masters in Mathematics from Western Governors University (2010).

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Master's Degree from Western Governors University in Math K-6. Also, I hold an ESL (English as a Second Language) Supplemental Certification which focuses on reading strategies for learners K-12. In addition, as a Kumon Instructor I taught reading and language to students Pre-K through adult. Furthermore, during the school year (and summer) I help our English teachers implement curriculum to help students pass STAAR English I and II. Lastly, during summer months, I have served as Curriculum Director for both math and reading, at our church for students in grades 2 through 8.

Elementary Math

Elementary math is when students learn the meaning of numbers and how to use the four basic operations to manipulate them: addition, multiplication, subtraction, and division. They also learn how to apply those operations to the the ten major fractions and mixed numbers. In addition, usually by grades four and five students learn the connection between fractions, decimals and percents.

Geometry

My experience includes teaching four years of regular Geometry and Pre-AP Geometry.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra also incorporates fractions, decimals, conversions between them, and the standard mathematical operations. In short, everything you need to build upon the concepts for algebra. Prealgebra teaches you the meaning of simple expressions and equations. This is when most students learn to use a variable (letter) for an unknown number instead of a "?" question mark or an empty box.

STAAR

STAAR-In spring 2012, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) replaced the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS). The STAAR program includes annual assessments for grades 3–8 in reading and mathematics; assessments in writing at grades 4 and 7; in science at grades 5 and 8; and in social studies at grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, English II, Algebra I, biology and U.S history. Additionally, STAAR EOC assessments for English III and Algebra II will be administered on a voluntary basis beginning in spring 2016.

In short STAAR is another "Stress Test As A Requirement," but it is okay. I am here to help! : )

EXPERIENCE
For the last two years I have helped high students studying to take the English I, II and Algebra End of Course exams earn successful scores.

In 19 years I have taught various maths to students pre-K through adult. Presently, I teach at an alternative high school in Alvin, Texas, where we help students make more positive choices for their futures in order to become productive citizens. This year my main classes are Geometry, Social Skills and Next Step- planning/preparation for life after high school. Also, as a Kumon Instructor, I taught pre-schoolers through adults math and reading.

TAKS

TAKS-Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills
For the past 11 years I have helped high school students strengthen their math skills to pass the State exam. Let me help you attack the TAKS!

Half the TAKS battle is knowing the five representations of a function. The rest is just real-life applications and "math common sense" skills.

Let's attack the TAKS together, you can do it!

Great tutor — This was my first experience with a tutor and Mrs. W. made it a great experience. With her teaching background, she is very responsive, and knowledgeable in all subject matters, which has been instrumental in my growth. Writing was always a challenge for me. Mrs. W. has helped with my writing and communication skills. I am so happy that after several attempts to find a suitable tutor I reached ...
