About Yvonne

I am a New York Certified retired teacher. I received my initial teacher training in Jamaica W.I. I graduated with Honors from the University of the West Indies where I earned my Bachelor's Degree. My Master's Degree was earned at Brooklyn College where I graduated summa cum laude. I have taught English language and literature in both Jamaica and New York for a combined total of over twenty five years. I am especially interested in improving deficiencies in reading, writing and communication skills. I am also interested and experienced in preparing students for the ELA Regents Comprehensive Examination. I am also proficient in preparing students for the Common Core ELA Examination.

I believe that all students are capable of achieving their academic goals under effective tutelage and strong support structures. I see my students' success as a measurement of my success as a teacher/tutor. Consequently, I approach teaching with the belief in depth rather that width of any concept or skill I am helping my students to learn or grasp.

Giving adequate cancellation notice not only shows respect for each party's time, but also helps to develop a relationship based on trust and mutual respect.

I enjoy teaching English and I endeavor to make this experience enjoyable for my students as well. I make my lessons student centered with activities that are aligned with my lesson objectives. I love to see when reading a text helps the students to journey to places and experience thing through their reading. I also help students to revise and edit their work by helping them to practice their grammatical knowledge.

I encourage you to contact me so that we will begin a wonderful and successful relationship of teaching and learning. I promise that under my instruction you will be rewarded in you academic pursuits.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in English language and literature. Also, I have a rich experience in teaching English in both the United States and Jamaica W.I. I am a New York State certified English teacher.

Regents

I have been preparing students for the Regents English Comprehensive Examination for over ten years. I prepared students as a teacher of English and also a home instructor. This involved writing a critical lens essay as well as answering multiple choice questions. We worked with past exam papers as well as other resources that help with the exam. The students were taught how to organize and develop the essays. They were also taught strategies to help them select correct multiple choice answers.
