Information about Yvonne

NEW to Barnstaple. Looking forward to meeting and helping new students in Devon!
Update: April 2019 - an 8yr old student received a commendation at her school assembly for her descri ptive writing and advanced vocabulary. 2019 A previously ungraded student has just achieved Grade 5 in his GCSE Mocks. A previously ungraded student has achieved Grade 7 in his GCSE re-takes.2018 Academic Year achievements to date - 5 GCSE `A`s 1 `B`. A Grammar School student`s grades rose from 80pc to 95pc; his teacher considers his work to be outstanding and of a high calibre. A student whose writing was initially illegible, then won a school handwriting competition. A 6yr old has progressed dramatically and is now assisting 7 & 8yr old pupils in her class. All other students have been commended on their progression at school.

I have been teaching for 11 years now and have two teaching qualifications. I am a friendly, kind, empathetic person with a good sense of humour enabling students to feel relaxed. In my experience if a tutor and student relate well and the student feels comfortable, at ease, and has fun, the learning process is enhanced and more productive.

I believe it is important that targets and goals are discussed and reviewed regularly to discuss progress and achievements so that the student`s self-esteem and self-confidence are boosted. Confidence is `key`. Learning should not be tedious, but a joy. I can `hand on heart` say that all my students look forward to their lessons.

I treat each student as an individual; I tailor and adapt tutoring to suit using appropriate learning styles and personality appropriateness.

Many testimonials to view.

Availability: This is my career so I am available daytime, early evening and all day Saturday.

Yvonne is amazing. Not only has she picked up quickly where my child needed the additional help, but understands how to get through with to them in a productive and helpful way. We can already see the progress in a couple of months :)

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for your lovely comments Daniela. Your son is an absolute pleasure to tutor and students` progress is what makes my career so rewarding and a joy.

Yvonne has been tutoring my 16-year-old son since January 2018 (17 months). She was able to connect with him instantly and put him at ease. It did not take her long to create an environment of trust and build a great relationship with him. She has ability to instil confidence, turning learning into a positive experience.

The primary reason for Yvonne tutoring my son was to get his GCSE grades up. However, I feel she has achieved way more than this by building his self-confidence and self-belief. Yvonne is professional and friendly and has an excellent command over the subject. My son is currently sitting his GSCE’s and he feels so much more confidence that he will get the grade he wants.

Thank you so much, Yvonne

Tutors Response :

Thank you very much for your lovely comments Bronwyn. Your son has been delightful to tutor, always willing to learn and apply his learning in practice. I am thrilled he has made such great progress and wish him all the best in the future.

Yvonne has proved to be a great help to my daughter who is in her GCSE year. After her first session she came out saying ‘That was so good. “I have learnt more in one hour than I have in two years at school!” I cannot praise Yvonne enough. She is very kind, patient and in just a very short time has hugely boosted my daughter’s confidence in tackling her English GCSE.

Yvonne has enthusiastically engaged my 16 year old son. This in itself was not an easy task but she managed to win him over and find some very quick wins which motivated him to want to learn move. He is making steady progress now and in much more confident of success in his GCSE examinations due in 2018.

Tutors Response :

Thank you David. I find your son to be charming, intelligent and easy to work with. A shared sense of humour has helped to engage him I think! I enjoy our lessons and look forward to helping him obtain a successful GCSE result.

I highly recommend Yvonne as a great English tutor for any child preparing for their GCSE English. She clearly sets out the different topics to learn in order for efficient preparation for the exams. My son has improved almost immediately and that has reflected in his school work - while he used to be just above average in his class, now, he is achieving in and around the 90-100% range. Really pleased.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for the feedback Palash. I am so pleased there has been a significant improvement in your son`s application of English. It is of course a `team` effort, he listens and studies well and alongside this he is a charming, well-mannered young man thereby a pleasure to tutor.

Yvonne tutored my daughter for her GCSE English Lit and Language during 2014.My daughter got a U in her Mock exams in November 2013 (prior to Yvonne tutoring her) and Yvonne got her to a Grade B in Language and a C in Lit by summer 2014.

Yvonne is an amazing tutor. I went to her because both my children needed help with their handwriting. My oldest son`s school had said that he would never write properly but after two sessions with Yvonne, his writing has been transformed - it`s joined up and legible. Yvonne has built a good rapport with both my children, one of whom is autistic. Her lessons are thoughtful and engaging and the boys are very happy to visit her for their weekly lesson. Very highly recommended.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much Marie. It`s a pleasure and rewarding to make a difference to a child`s education. Your boys are a delight to tutor.
Best wishes
Yvonne
