About Virginie


Bio

Being a Certified mathematics Teacher, grades 6-12, I have taught high school mathematics for many years. I have also been teaching various courses in math and French to University students as well. I am very patient and understand that some students have a fear of mathematics, often due to a lack of understanding the basics. Students often need to be retaught what was not learned previously with an experienced and patient teacher. I believe students learn best when they enjoy the lessons,...

Being a Certified mathematics Teacher, grades 6-12, I have taught high school mathematics for many years. I have also been teaching various courses in math and French to University students as well. I am very patient and understand that some students have a fear of mathematics, often due to a lack of understanding the basics. Students often need to be retaught what was not learned previously with an experienced and patient teacher. I believe students learn best when they enjoy the lessons, especially mathematics so my approach is to engage them as much as possible and add a sense of humor.

I have had great results with my previous students on a one on one basis, I even have had students improving gradually their grade from a F to an A. Of course, it improves the student's confidence tremendously, and the parents are very happy as well!

I teach many topics in mathematics, Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Calculus, SAT, French etc.

I hold a Mathematics degree from University of California at Santa Cruz, a Baccalaureate in Economics from France and I have 7 pilot licenses, including commercial pilot and flight instructor in airplanes.

Being a native from France, I love to teach French as well. I have taught in International Schools, Berlitz and Inlingua, which has given me tools to use the best method for students to learn conversational French.

So much fun

Virginie makes these lessons soooo much fun. I admit mon tete feels like its going to explode as she so nicely forces me to learn new and somehow remeber stuff I was taught 35+ years ago

Thomas, 24 lessons with Virginie

great teacher

Excellent teacher and very patient . I am very excited to continue to work with her throughout this semester for Statistics.

Madeline, 4 lessons with Virginie

Great tutor

My son had a very productive session with Virginie. She is very knowledgeable and related to my son in a way that made it very easy for him to follow along and absorb the lesson. They had a very productive time and I would hire her again without hesitation.

Kathryn, 2 lessons with Virginie

Nice and great with son

My son felt very confident and is excited about continuing to work on Algebra. We are definitely going to continue to work with Virginie and also hope she can work with my other children.

Extremely knowledgeable and patient!

Virginie has tutored both of my high school students, twins with very different styles of learning. Both were resistant to go to a tutor, & when they came home both told me how amazing she was at tutoring (w/out me even asking). In just 1 meeting w/ my son on Calculus, his grade went from a D to a high B, then on to an A. He is normally a good math student, but was struggling w/ this subject - he said she filled in all of the missing pieces. Virginie tutored my daughter in Math for SAT Prep. My daughter could not believe how many problems they were able to work through in such a short time. Was very helpful addressing test anxiety. My daughter text me right after the apt "She's great. If you give reviews, give her 5 stars!" What an incredible experience we had with Virginie - highly recommend!!

Great Tutor

Virginie was excellent with my son during their first session. She put him right at ease and was able to work through a lot of material with him. They focused on going through some tests and quizzes from his Algebra 1 class . By the end of the session he had a better understanding of what he had found challenging.

Patient teacher

Virginie and I went over all the course material needed and I feel much more prepared for my final! Thank you!

Virgo, 1 lesson with Virginie

Very patient and knowledgeable teacher

Today he was speaking much more French and he seemed to be enjoying it very much, which is very important to us. During the math class he was introduced to some new activities but in a very light manner so there was no stress on his side. I liked very much how Virginie switches from easier topic to a harder one, no pressure just patience and explanation in a very positive way.

Excellent

Viriginie, was excellent at understanding my needs and assessing my level of knowledge in Algebra to effectively conduct our first tutoring session.
