The founder of Education Advantage!, LLC, Mr. Antwan Oliver, worked diligently as a public school teacher instructing second and third grade students for three years in Broward County, Florida. During both his second and third year of teaching, Mr. Oliver achieved one of the highest learning gains in the State of Florida. Mr. Oliver’s expertise in elementary education challenged him to establish a tutoring service to accommodate the needs of students outside of the normal school day. Consequently, Education Advantage!, LLC was founded in March 2007.
