About Yvonne


Bio

I have over ten years of ISEE tutoring experience, and I am quite serious about forming a study plan. I expect students to practice what we go over because there is a LOT of new material to learn, regardless of the level. In a nutshell, the ISEE is about applying problem solving skills with speed, and it takes a lot of practice.

I have over ten years of ISEE tutoring experience, and I am quite serious about forming a study plan. I expect students to practice what we go over because there is a LOT of new material to learn, regardless of the level. In a nutshell, the ISEE is about applying problem solving skills with speed, and it takes a lot of practice.

I began my tutoring career during my college years working for Miami University's tutoring center (The Rinella Learning Center). I have also worked for Tutor.com, Varsity Tutors, and VIPKid. I absolutely love what I do, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I specialize in math up to precalculus and general chemistry up to college level. I teach my students to become their own problem solvers - to pause and think about how they can apply what they already know.

And a little about me!
I am a HUGE animal lover, so I went ahead and majored in zoology. My favorite animals are elephants, giraffes, and mastiffs. I also love lifting weights at the gym or going for a run in the park. I love being creative in any sense: creativity is the key to problem solving! I love painting (acrylics and oils), creating sculptures out of wire, and knitting sweaters for dogs.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

Grammar

Grammar

Understanding how to correctly use grammar is key in becoming a good writer. Grammar is one of those subjects that over the course of a lifetime will never go away, and fortunately, learning correct grammar is just like learning how to ride a bike. Once you figure it out, you never forget! Master topics such as: sentence structure diagramming clauses and phrases verb conjugations correct case of pronouns run-on sentences subordinate and coordinate conjunctions punctuation capitalization abbreviations

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Mastering basic math principles at the elementary level is crucial for success in all future math courses. Struggling in math is not uncommon for elementary students, but with a little bit of patience, explanation, and practice, math will no longer be a source of anxiety and disappointment. Believe it or not, but I can make math fun for your little one! Master life skills such as: telling time counting coins measurements English and metric systems Master topics such as: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division in whole numbers, fractions, and decimals multiplication tables number patterns and mathematical trends factorization

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I am a math person and have excelled in any course that is math related. I have tutored up to college level algebra II at Miami University, and I have the understanding and insight of mathematics to help any student succeed in algebra I! Gain a solid foundation for all future math courses by mastering order of operations. Master topics such as: expressing variables adding/subtracting integers adding/subtracting rational numbers multiply/dividing rational numbers solving equations solving inequalities linear equations graphing polynomials data analysis radicals factoring
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I have three years of chemistry tutoring at the college level. Chemistry is presumed to be a very difficult subject for most, but most people cannot fully understand this subject by reading a text book or listening to a lecture. It is a very literal subject best explained using visual aids, examples, and real life scenarios. Master topics such as: matter stoichiometry enthalpy balancing equations oxidation numbers gas laws kinetics acid/base reactions rate of reaction naming compounds forming products nuclear chemistry
Geometry,

Geometry

As a tutor, it is my job to teach students HOW to understand geometry. Success in geometry is all about developing a literal thought process, not just memorizing theorems, laws, and rules. Master topics such as: linear expressions angles parallelograms triangles polygons congruence parameter and surface area for 2D shapes parameter, surface area, and volume for 3D shapes theorems and laws
Prealgebra

Prealgebra

Taking the time to master prealgebra will set your child up for succeeding in any future math course. It is so important that students take the time to understand and master prealgebra because these basic principles are applied all the way through high school and beyond. Confidence in this subject area is very important! Master topics such as: order of operations calculating exponents writing algebraic expressions word problems distribution graphing

Test Preparation

ISEE,

ISEE

I tutored for the ISEE when I worked for Varsity Tutors. I helped students review and practice strategies for the 5 sections on the ISEE. Verbal Section -Vocabulary strategies: memorizing prefixes and roots, applying prefixes and roots to the definition, labeling words as positive/negative, ruling out synonyms, using own context -Sentence Completion: matching positive/negative, using context clues, applying process of elimination Mathematics Section -practice basic math skills such as multiplication tables, long-division, trends in numbers, and shortcuts to calculating -review fundamentals of algebra, geometry, and reading graphs -breaking down word problems Quantitative Section -review rules for eliminating certain answer choices -practice making column A look like column B -incorporating the importance of negative numbers and the concepts of greater than or less than Reading Section -review the 5 types of reading questions -practice paying attention to what is stated in the passage -focus on context clues to find what the author is inferring Writing Section -practice setting up an outline for intro, body, conclusion essay -go over the fundamentals for writing a persuasive essay as well as an essay in response to an open-ended question -practice using metaphors and imagery to be descriptive as well as spark the reader's interest

Very helpful for ISEE prep

Yvonne helped my 13 year old with his ISEE prep. She gave him invaluable verbal reasoning strategy and helped his confidence. We canceled a late meeting because he knew it all! Thanks!

Patient and friendly

Yvonne is helping my daughter with ISEE test tutoring. My daughter finds her easy to work with and has no complaints with regards to her instruction ability. So far, so good!

Edith, 1 lesson with Yvonne

Patient and Knowledgeable

She has been very well in understanding the need of child development and work towards the same. You don't need to keep on telling her as what she needs to do. Also, she has been very patient.

RAJESH, 6 lessons with Yvonne

ISEE TEST FOR 7th. GRADE

My daughter just did her first class with Yvonne and loved her. My daughter ended the class very excited about what she learned in just one class. Yvonne is very responsive and sent helpful information to us from the very begning of our conversation. We are glad we found Yvonne!!!

Great ISEE Prep Tutor

Vonnie helped my children learn test-taking strategies, as well as teaching and reviewing test subject matters. She gave them small, manageable daily homework assignments -- plus lots of encouragement. We were very pleased with the test results.

Alisa, 39 lessons with Yvonne

Very knowledgeable

Yvonne was very helpful and knew exactly how to help me and didn't make me feel dumb. She was great! I will be recommending her to friends I have in Houston. I will also be scheduling more time with her myself.
