About Yolanda

My love of teaching was realized when I decided to make a drastic change in my life for my children. Losing a spouse is always difficult, but when there are two young children to take care of, changes need to be made. I left my job as a medical director and decided to try on-line teaching to stay home with my children, and I have not looked back since! My children and I are much happier now and I was able to discover my love for teaching. I am certified to teach English as a second language now, and I love it! I am also qualified to teach in any field of science, as well as English, Writing and Literature.

My philosophy of teaching is simple. Every student is different and every student has a different style of learning. I feel that the most important element of being a tutor/instructor is to be adaptable to the many different approaches to learning. I take time to get to know my students and understand them. My first session will take on a "meet and greet" format in order to establish a good rapport with my student and to determine what tools will best suit their learning personality. All subsequent sessions will involve three main elements: warm up exercises, with review of previous lesson; the main lesson of the day/week; and each lesson will be concluded with a quick review of steps and homework assignment.

As a graduate of medical school, I am able to tutor/teach students in various areas of the sciences. Biology and Physiology are my two favorite subjects, but I have also tutored students in Psychology and Physical Science.

My fees vary depending on the time and location of a session. Please give me a call and we can discuss any pricing and any subjects that your are having trouble with. I am very flexible, but my schedule has a tendency to fill up very quickly, so give me a call now so we can get started!
