I'm Yvonne, certified English teacher, successful home educator, experienced tutor. After spending several years in the public high school classroom, I embarked on a journey as a home educator. 25 years later, my five children have all finished high school and are in college, in graduate school, or gainfully employed. In addition to home schooling, I have worked extensively as a private ACT/SAT tutor, coached many students in spelling, and tutored students in English grammar and in composition. In addition to my certification as a secondary English teacher, I also hold a master's degree in counseling psychology and have worked with testing and evaluation in the public school setting.

Education is my passion. I particularly enjoy working one on one with students in a tutoring environment. The tutoring relationship allows me to get to know my students, identify their strengths and weaknesses, and determine the best individual strategies to maximize their learning potential.

As a certified secondary English teacher, I am experienced in teaching grammar, spelling, writing, and literature. After coaching two of my children in four trips to the National Spelling Bee, I began a weekly spelling club for 3rd - 8th graders which continued for 5 years. My experience with ACT/SAT tutoring began with my own children (4 National Merit Scholars) and has expanded to a private, referral-based tutoring service.

I believe that students should be taught to learn independently, to read thoughtfully, to think critically, and to write effectively and am fully committed to working with students to achieve that end. I am readily available for questions and discussion. Please feel free to contact me!

I am a certified teacher who homeschooled my own five children from kindergarten through high school. In my own homeschool, The Kappelmann Academy, I carefully selected rigorous curriculum based on the needs and abilities of each child. In this context, I have successfully taught reading, writing, math, science, and social sciences at all levels. I also hold a master's degree in counseling psychology and have worked with testing and evaluation in the public school setting. All of my children performed at very high levels on standardized testing, including the Iowa Test of Basic Skills, the PSAT, the ACT, and the SAT. Four of the children were recognized as National Merit Scholars, all scored a 31 or higher on the ACT, and all were admitted to and excelled at nationally-ranked universities.
