"Encouraging and responsive"
Jean from Berkeley, CA on 9/26/13
My daughter has enjoyed the discussions about the math problems posed in class. She is learning to discern problems not just answer the questions. My daughter has enjoyed the method of asking and evaluating the problems the classroom teacher proposes. With Yvonne's help, she is learning to solve problems but also to evaluate problems, which, in my opinion, is even more valuable. It is not the answer that is most valuable but the process to answer the problem and the discernment to know that there is something missing in the process. I appreciate Yvonne's approach which encourages and supports her own thinking process.
"Very good tutor!"
Brian from Pleasant Hill, CA on 9/7/13
Yvonne explained the material perfectly and made it easy to understand. She was on time, very professional, and even prepared a study outline for our next session. I would definitely recommend her!
"Amazing tutor "
Amanda from Orinda, CA on 8/30/13
I found Yvonne in a panic as I was trying to get through an online geometry class that I had never passed in highschool and now as I am transferring into a university, I needed to take the course again online and pass it before school started. We were on a deadline, a month to be exact and Yvonne met with me every single morning for 4 weeks straight. She took the time to go over every lesson with me so that I really understood it instead of just learning it to pass the final. She's very patient and has a really good way of explaining things in an easier way to understand. As I venture of in my college career, I am almost positive I will need help in my math classes and I will make certainly be asking her to help me with it !
"Great family tutor!"
Fernando from Houston, TX on 5/19/13
Yvonne has been in our family since my daughter was in elementary school. Now that my daughter is in middle school and my youngest son will be starting preschool this year, I feel confident knowing that Yvonne will help my children stay focused on their school work when its homework time so that they can keep a balanced life between home, school, and sports. It's also convenient having an Excel expert readily available when I have questions.
"Relatable, patient and thorough."
Jennifer from Arcadia, CA on 5/9/13
My daughter is a freshman at a local all girl, Catholic school and has found some of her classes to be quite challenging. She is hesitant to ask questions in class for fear that she would appear to be "dumb" to her classmates as well as her teacher. Yvonne's tutoring style has made my daughter feel comfortable enough to ask questions 1-on-1. Yvonne is detailed in her teaching and asks that my daughter seek the answers in the book and work out the problems rather than doing the problem for her or giving the answers. This technique allows my daughter to really understand the lesson and helps her retain the information learned. I am happy to report that my daughter now walks with a skip in her step because she REALLY understands the material. We could not have asked for a more successful tutor experience! Yvonne is amazing!!!!

I am really getting the hang of Algebra through Yvonne's patient teaching methods. She is so patient and presents algebra in a format so easy to understand. I have not taken any math courses in around 17 years and am amazed I can do what I can do after only 2 sessions with Yvonne. I believe I will be ready to tackle College Algebra in August because of her. I highly recommend Yvonne to anyone wanting to really understand and grasp each concept thoroughly.
Connie from Mc Lean, VA on 3/7/12
Yvonne is one of the best tutors my daughter has had. She is kind, patient, intelligent and really has the talent to explain difficult concepts in a variety of ways. My daughter looks forward to her time with Yvonne. She feels empowered after her sessions to do better in her classes. She is punctual, has a nice area in her building in which to tutor and for now is unable to tutor in your home. She is worth the trip!
"Absolutely wonderful learning experience!"
Jon from Pasadena, CA on 10/21/11
I had my first tutoring session yesterday with Yvonne Hernandez and I must say I was most impressed by her professionalism and her depth of subject knowledge.
What's more, she conveyed the information to me in a manner that I easily understood. That, to me, is the mark of a fine and effective tutor. I will certainly use Yvonne again and look forward to broadening my knowledge. I would suggest Yvonne without reservation to anyone seeking a quality tutor!
"Patient, Accessible, and Responsive"
Marco from San Marino, CA on 10/11/11
Ms. Yvonne's patient and collegial temperament creates a most productive learning environment between her and the student. She possesses a comprehensive understanding of the subject material and employs Socratic techniques to help ensure that the student grasps the concept being taught. Moreover, her written feedback is detailed, informative and promptly submitted.
Barbara from La Crescenta, CA on 7/4/11
Yvonne was very organized, clear, and accommodating, altogether a lovely, smart, professional tutor. I highly recommend her.
Yvonne replied on 7/14/2011:
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave some feedback. It is such a pleasure to work with such a dedicated and respectable young man!
"She is FANTASTIC!!!! "
Dinah from Pasadena, CA on 4/12/11
She is what I needed for Grad School. Her skill to pin point exactly where I was weak in my writing was impressive. By pin pointing my problem areas she was able to help me achieve the level of writing that I need for grad school. Her great analytical skills assisted me to improve my writing a great deal and quickly.
I think WyzAnt is a great business and much needed for all level of students.
"A five star tutor!"
Sabrina from Los Angeles, CA on 2/20/11
Having Yvonne as my tutor was a delightful experience. Not only was she my tutor, but also my educational adviser. When first meeting with her, she composed of a great idea to first set small goals. Yvonne was very patient and she listened to all my needs. With this in mind, I was very comfortable with telling her all my concerns I had with my education. Well enough, she was able to provide great advice, in which I have followed each and every one. She also responds very fast to emails which is another great plus! I would highly recommend Yvonne to anyone who is in need of educational assistance.
"A Uniquely Wise Tutor"
Susan from Altadena, CA on 6/8/10
Yvonne really clicked with my daughter. With her new-found ability for Algebra, my daughter has become more empowered, confident and happy, thanks to Yvonne. Yvonne is a patient, super-clear and extremely effective teacher! For the first time my daughter is genuinely enjoying math. And I am impressed with both my daughter and Yvonne--they are a great team. I highly recommend Yvonne to anyone struggling with numbers of any kind; she's a wiz!
Patty from La Crescenta, CA on 5/19/10
Before I met with Yvonne I was considering withdrawing from my class. I didn't know what to expect when we first met but I am amazed at how well and efficiently she has been able to simplify the subject I was having such a hard time with. My tutoring sessions so far have been amazing and I have high hopes for my upcoming midterm.
"The Absolute Best!"
Shevahn from Pasadena, CA on 5/5/10
Yvonne came to my rescue at the last minute to help me prepare and review for my algebra final. She was so patient and thorough in making sure I fully understood all of the concepts. It is most evident that Yvonne possesses a true passion and care for her students and sincerely wants us to do well. Whatever my struggles, she stuck with me until I fully understood the problems. I am by no means a fan of math, however, working with Yvonne was enjoyable and rewarding and I highly recommend her to anyone in need of an incredible tutor!!!
April from North Hollywood, CA on 4/28/10
Yvonne was very patient with me, and helped me understand the concept of the material. I now have a better understanding of the chapter we covered.
"very knowledgable, understanding. great tutor"
Sukwon from Houston, TX on 6/6/08
She has ample experience of ESL tutoring.
She listens carefully to me and sincerely try to help me.
I think I found the great way to improve my English skill with her help.
One tiny complaint is just a little bit expensive.
