About Yvonne

I was born on the Crow Reservation in Montana. I moved to San Diego when I was about three or four and lived in the Bay Area until I got into college. My Bachelor's was in English/British Literature. I've always wanted to help people and teaching was a great field to do this that allowed me to meet people from all over the world. When I got my Bachelor's, I was told that I should get some experience first before I made a serious commitment in case I wanted to change my career focus. This led me to teach in South Korea.

My six years of teaching in South Korea was an eye opener for me. I realized teaching kids took a lot of energy but was fun and also that I did very well with adults. I spent one year teaching at a private elementary school and then was able to transfer to a University in Seoul that taught 18-24 year old college students basic English skills such as reading, writing, and speaking. Now I have moved back to the United States to continue teaching.

I started tutoring English to students at my community college about 10 years ago and continued tutoring at my job at the university in Seoul, South Korea. I've taught all the basic skills related to reading and writing. Additional skills I've taught are how to get a job and how to do a presentation either for school or work.

I'm ready to start lessons with anyone who might need to build up their reading and writing skills. Please contact me through the Wyzant website.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary school kids from grades 1-6 in South Korea. I have also taught elementary level students on Wyzant in Reading and Writing already with high reviews. I know how to teach and motivate elementary school students who are struggling in learning these subjects. Many of my students just needed more time to understand and/or more confidence in knowing they can improve and build on what they already know.
