About Geraldine

French: My name is Geraldine. I am a native French speaker, having lived in France until the age of 11. I hold a Bachelor's degree in French and Francophone studies from Brandeis University and a graduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania. I have been tutoring French privately for 8 years, including 4 on Wyzant. I enjoy working with students at all levels of French, helping them to master the French language and increasing their appreciation for the French culture.

Proofreading/College Counseling: My name is Geraldine. I hold a bachelor's degree from Brandeis University and a Juris Doctor from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. In law school, I taught legal writing and was an editor for the Law Review. I enjoy working individually with students on improving their school papers, job application materials (cover letters, resumes, etc.), college application materials (personal statements, resumes, scholarship essays, supplements, interview responses), etc. With me, you can expect to receive detailed-oriented proofreading and specific, constructive criticism to strengthen your work product and applications.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

College Counseling

I have gone through the college application and law school application process personally. In law school, I taught writing and was an editor of the Law Review. I also informally helped students with their applications and essay writing. Finally, while in law school, I worked with the Office of Admission and was able to learn what happens behind the scene in school admission. I would like to share my experience and knowledge with Wyzant students.
