"Dr. Mrs. Vandertramp" is the mnemonic for English speakers to remember which French verbs are conjugated in "passé composé" with the "être" auxiliary instead of "avoir".
Each letter of the mnemonic represents one verb:
Devenir - to become
Revenir - to return
Mourir - to die
Rester - to stay
Sortir - to go out/Exit
Venir - to come
Arriver - to arrive
Naître - to be born
Descendre - to descend or go down
Entrer - to enter
Rentrer - to return home
Tomber - to fall
Retourner - to return
Aller - to go
Monter - to climb/to go up
Partir - to part/ to leave
Passer and Deceder are also conjugated with "être" in some cases, like when they mean 'to pass by' and 'to decease'.
Not much of a mnemonic, since remember initials apply to thousand of words and verbs, not just one verb per letter, let alone a whole list.
There the verbs in french that are conjugated with 'être' in passé composé.The acronym stands for:Descendre VenirRetourner AllerNaitreMonter DevinirRevenir EntrerSortir RentrerTomberPasser ResterAllerMourirPartir
"Etre" is used for any motion verb (use the "Dr./Mrs. P. Vandertramp" trick to remember motion verbs) and any reflexive verbs. All other verbs use "avoir" as the past participle.
The plural form is the Mrs. Vandertramps.The two Mrs. Vandertramps are sisters-in-law.

You use etre for "Dr and Mrs Vandertramp" or "house" verbs. You also use etre for reflexive verbs like se lever, se coucher, se sentir. Don't forget to conjugate etre and use the passe compose end form of the verb (er=e(with accent), re=u, ir=i). The most common etre passe compose is "Je suis ne(e)." = I was born.
