Information about Yvette
I am a qualified teacher with a great deal of experience in private tuition as well as in classroom teaching. I graduated from Imperial College in Mathematics and stayed on to carry out research in Applied Mathematics to Diploma Level. I also have a Postgraduate Certificate in Mathematical Education (PGCE). I have always had a keen interest and enthusiasm for the subject for its own sake .
I have had a very varied career and have worked as a technical computer programmer as well as in Maths school teaching and private tuition both in this country and abroad. Hence I am a fully qualified and experienced secondary school Mathematics teacher (Years 7 to 11) and private tutor in the subject.
I thoroughly enjoy teaching Maths individually and helping students struggling to understand the subject. I can assist them with their regular school work as well as with exam revision. I have often been told that I have amazing reserves of patience and the ability to instil my students with confidence and enjoyment in the subject.
I tutor part-time and am very keen on Group Exercise classes of Aerobics, Studio Cycling, Zumba, Yoga etc. I also like country walking and am interested in wildlife and gardening.
Availability: Since the CORONAVIRUS outbreak I have reduced my prices and am only offering online tuition (currently using Skype). This is works really well, provided the student has a good enough Internet connection. Families find virtual lessons are extremely convenient.
I am quite flexible and have availability during the day, after school and at weekends.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have taught Mathematics in schools and F.E. colleges in the UK and in the United Arab Emirates up to GCSE and A Level.
I also tutored students both in this country and in Dubai with great success. In fact I was selected by my Dubai school to teach the children of the Royal Family. This consistently results in excellent attainments for my students.
My own four children studied Maths to A level and I tutored them throughout their education. They are now grown up.
In 2013 I returned from the Middle East to my home in Tunbridge Wells. Since then I have been working as a private tutor of Mathematics.
I do have a great deal of experience both with the old and the new 9-1 GCSE (ever since its introduction) as well as with the IGCSE, Common Entrance and adult numeracy exams etc.

Thank you very much for this, Claire. I`m glad my tuition is helping. Matty is very focused and tries hard in the lessons
Very experienced, patient, really helped my Year 11 son to plug the gaps in time for he iGCSE. Very flexible and quick at responding to messages.
I have no hesitation in giving Vicki 5 stars. She has been tutoring my daughter weekly for two months in both physics and chemistry in this very important GCSE year and we have booked several sessions during the Easter Holidays to help with GCSE revision etc. Vicki is communicative and reliable and my daughter`s knowledge and confidence in these subjects has grown tenfold.
Very good tutor. Clear, thorough and very helpful.

Yvette is a very good tutor who has helped to explain maths topics to my daughter in a way that she understands. Would recommend.
Yvette has got me back in touch with mental maths techniques, that I had seriously lost through being reliant on calculators. I need to pass a difficult mental maths test as part of a job selection. Yvette has given me the confidence to get through the test, and the skills to take with me in my career. Yvette has also being very accommodating with planning lessons around my shift patterns that I work. Many Thanks Yvette!
Yvette was very understanding and provided excellent tuition under exceptional circumstances. She was very flexible and gave a lot of positive encouragement - resulting in a maths GCSE when it seemed out of reach. Many many thanks.
