I am a licensed attorney who attended law school at the Sorbonne University, Paris, and practiced in Belgium before moving to North Carolina, where I have been practicing since 2003. I am also licensed to practice in the United Kingdom. I have experience in the French, Belgian, and U.S. legal systems, and would be happy to tutor law students, Bar Exam candidates, or professionals seeking to gain a basic working knowledge or more advanced knowledge of legal concepts, legal systems, and specialized legal language.
With a B.A. in French and a diploma in French Phonetics from University College, London, and a certification in teaching English as a Second Language, I lived and taught English as a Second Language in France for 15 years in the public school system, the University system, and professional training schools for judges and lawyers.
I have experience teaching at all levels and to all age groups, from pre-school children to post-graduate level, including business people seeking to acquire a working knowledge of English as a Second Language or French.
As a British native, I speak English with a standard English accent. I am completely bilingual (English/French), and equally at ease teaching French or English.
Great tutor who is truly invested in your future
Written 12/19/13: Judy is a kind yet serious tutor that combines her legal and teacher experience to make a highly beneficial tutoring experience. For the NC Bar exam in particular, she is willing to take as much time with you as necessary to ensure that you master the concepts and improve your writing and MBE scores. I personally have seen her commitment firsthand to providing excellent tutoring skills. I look forward to seeing all of her handwork and skill pay off on the February NC Bar Exam! Written 4/15/14: Update: I recently sat for and passed the NC February Bar Exam and I have no one to credit but Judy. I originally contacted Judy in need of essay score improvement but she enthusiastically set a goal that surpassed my expectations and included scoring high enough to waive into DC. She boosted my essay and MBE scores dramatically and as she predicted, not only was I successful on the NC Bar Exam but I was even able to waive into the DC Bar. She set a reasonable schedule for me, met with me weekly, and gave honest yet encouraging feedback while tweaking my study schedule and style to optimally best suit my needs. It is with no hesitation that I would HIGHLY recommend her to any student studying for the NC Bar Exam.Brittany, 28 lessons with Judy

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor
One of my main issues has been test and study anxiety, Judy's warm and calm demeanor throughout the lesson really assuaged a lot of my anxiety in a way that no other tutor has been able to. She didn't make me feel dumb for not picking things up right away and the examples she gave to clarify some general concepts were easy to follow and incredibly helpful.Maggie, 13 lessons with Judy

Highly Recommended Bar Tutor!
After studying with Judy for 6 weeks I felt confident going into the TN Bar. In fact, Judy and I had reviewed 4 essays that were directly on point with what was tested. I passed! Honestly, I would have highly recommended Judy even if I hadn't passed because she is your teammate through it all and is there for you every day giving you all she has. If you are considering Judy, just go ahead and take the dive.Raven, 27 lessons with Judy
Ms. Judy helped me to remember concepts and black letter law I didn’t quite get in my first year in law school in a matter of minutes. I actually had fun challenging myself to remember it. Looking forward to our future classes.Jebrenna , 18 lessons with Judy
Knowledgeable and Dependable
Mrs. P. was a godsend, I wish I had started with her earlier. In the one month I spent with her I was able to gain more information and better understanding of Bar exam essentials than I had studying on my own for months. Her methods are thorough and really force you to grasp the information so you truly understand the concepts and call of the question. I would highly recommend her for bar exam preparations!Tiffany, 33 lessons with Judy
Knowledgeable and accommodating tutor
I needed a tutor for my MTEL (Mass teachers test) for English as Second Language. I had taken the practice multiple choice portion of test without study and got a 66%. Granted I had a lot of background knowledge in this area as a professional but did not do well on the exam at all... After 6 sessions with Judy I retook the multiple choice and scored a 91%. I felt very confident in my exam today, especially in the 2 open response questions. I loved working with Judy, She was so accommodating finding a book we would both read and then discuss the chapters. She tested me on the chapter each time and I really internalized everything through our discussions. We looked at the two sample essays and how the MTEL graded them, I did the responses then we discussed them together. I am so grateful for Judy! It was not easy to find an ESL MTEL prep tutor, especially when the search engine continually brought me to only tutors for individuals who would want to be tutored as an ESL student. I definitely suggest working with Judy!Courtney, 6 lessons with Judy
Challenging and positive tutor for Verbal SAT
Judy V. was suggested to us to help my son improve his Verbal SAT score. While he is already scoring well, he is trying to master this test and get as close to a perfect score as possible. Judy quickly is focusing on the areas he needs to master and challenging him in a way that would not be possible in a group class. Highly recommended!Nina, 12 lessons with Judy
