To Contact Dr. Yvonne Birch
Please complete the email form below.
Hello I’m Yvonne. It is very exciting for me to head up Home-School-Tutoring in Cambridgeshire as your area advisor.
I am a committed educator and my background in education spans more than 30 years as a teacher, tutor, examiner, Advisor and Headteacher. I have taught in state and independent schools and home-schooled one of my own children for a while. My philosophy in education is summed up by the quote:
“Education is not preparation for life: Education is life itself.”
I believe we learn most effectively when we are relaxed and engaged and an excellent tutor will understand how to achieve these learning conditions for each individual pupil.
I currently work as a tutor myself, as well as running this Area of Home-School Tutoring and I personally specialise in maths at all levels. My pupils range from year 6 to adult. Most are in full-time education whilst others are home-schooled or in need of GCSE maths to access college courses.
It is always a great pleasure to identify the best tutor to meet your or your child’s specific learning needs.
Please contact me to chat through the support your child needs so that we can match up a suitable tutor. In fact, the more you can tell us about your needs, the better we can meet your requirements.
We trust your experience of Home-School Tutoring will be positive and prove an invaluable educational support.
We look forward to hearing from you
Thank you ! Dr. Yvonne Birch

“I’d recommend her in a heartbeat – she was really down to earth and got to know my son really well.” ( GCSE English tutor)
“My son was an older pupil sitting GCSE retakes. He got on fabulously with Henri (English teacher) and passed his exam on the resit. I’d recommend her in a heartbeat as she had a really down to earth attitude and was able to chat with my son and get to know him really well.”
