Salut! My name is Vicky, and I am a French tutor passionate about the language and culture. I have studied French since high school; in 2012, I graduated with a B.A. in Art History from Harvard College, where I also studied French film theory and modern literature. Professionally, I have worked abroad in Paris, France; in my current work, I interact with French content and my company's European entity.

I specialize in teaching beginner- to intermediate-level French students to quickly build grammar and syntax foundation and learn to converse. I use project-oriented techniques to inspire and build interest. Lessons are tailored around students' personal goals.

I look forward to sharing *cette belle langue* with you.

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.

French

I studied 4 years of French in high school; studied French film theory and French literature at Harvard College during undergraduate career; spent 3 months (Feb 2013-May 2013) working in Paris; currently read French literature and listen to French radio for leisure. I look forward to teaching beginning to intermediate students who have a passion for conversation and an interest in modern French literature.

SAT Math

I have worked as an SAT and SAT II tutor with Ivy-Way SAT Prep, tutoring SAT Math, Reading, and Writing, as well as SAT II subjects. My students see a marked improvement of 100-200 points on the 800 point scale. During my high school years, I scored 800 on both SAT Math and SAT II Math. I teach general SAT strategy and believe in exercise-based methods -- after all, practice makes perfect!
