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 we are usually more successful in life when we pursue our goals utilizing our natural wiring. Maybe Algebra, Geometry, SAT/ACT, Basketball and any other...

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 we are usually more successful in life when we pursue our goals utilizing our natural wiring. Maybe Algebra, Geometry, SAT/ACT, 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?!

EXPERIENCE-Math, SAT/ACT/TSI/EOC, Study Skills
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 classes include Algebra I, Algebra II, Math Models, National Honor Society sponsor, and AFP-academic future preparation. Also, as a (former) 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 (most weeks) in points and rebounds, with high stats in charges per game, steals, field goal and free throw percentages. The summer of my junior year I played with Athletes in Action's European tour team. We toured Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Yugoslavia playing various high caliber teams while witnessing for Christ.

After graduating with BA in Communication/Advertising/Business, 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 8-year cancer "Thriver!"

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.

Test Preparation

STAAR,

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.

Excellent Tutor!

I strongly recommend Mrs. Antoinette! With only 2 weeks of preparation before my TExES Exam, she has helped me understand the concepts of mathematics. I was pleased with all of the tips and personalized information given to help my specific needs. It was such a blessing to work with someone who is truly helpful in making sure you succeed. She helped me grasped the material and in the end achieve a passing score on my exam. Thank you Mrs. Antoinette!

Good Tutor

She taught me math and algebra. As she was teaching me she made it seem so easy and I enjoyed everything she taught me. If anyone needs a tutor she would be a good candidate. I would rate her at 4 stars. Please believe me she is a good tutor and she will answer all your questions. After she taught me now I have more confidence so if anyone is looking for a Tutor she would be my choice.

Great tutor!

Very good with my daughter and knew exactly where her strengths and weaknesses were and went to work. Very easy to get ahold of and genuine. Thanks!

Kenny, 4 lessons with Antoinette

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 out to Mrs. W. She responded right away and said she would be glad to help me. She has been a blessing, and with her encouragement I have decided to return to school and pursue my degree in Business Management. If you're looking for a tutor who will take a vested ownership in ensuring that you reach your goal, Mrs. W. is the right person.

Very Interested in the Student

Antoinette is outstanding as a tutor. She is truly concerned about your child achieving their best. Our 8 year old really likes her and anticipates the next lesson. Thank you. Update: So thankful we found Antoinette as a tutor. She is reaching out to our child through his interest of art to learn math. Way to go. She keeps him interested. Each time he works with Antoinette, he is more interested in learning. Thank you so much.
