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 that knows the exam inside and out! Ditch the commercial courses for Judy!
The first half of my bar prep journey was extremely stressful. On top of studying during a global pandemic, my commercial bar prep course gave me no guidance on what to focus on and failed to provide me with a productive schedule. It was a waste of time of watching video after video that would always leave me asking the same question after watching, "What did I learn?" A little over 2 months before the exam, I decided it was a time for a change. That's when I found Judy. Right away Judy provided a short term and long term schedule of topics and kept me accountable on a daily basis. Over time we covered every topic and every piece of testable material. However, Judy does not bog down her students with the unnecessary details that a commercial bar prep course does, she hammers home the major aspects of each subject until you know it cold. This allows for truly productive studying and for you to attain a passing score by studying what is actually on the exam. Judy tailors the preparation for each part of the exam. For the MBE you will do real past exam questions on a daily basis until you complete upwards of 1000 before exam day. For the MEE, Judy's years of bar prep tutoring and knowledge of past exams have given her a "sixth sense" of what topics are going to be covered and when. She was right on the money for the topics covered. On exam day, the essays unfolded just as she predicted. For the MPT Judy has you do practice MPTs on a periodic basis and boils it down to a simple formula that saves you so much time and energy. while scoring all the points you need to pass. Do yourself a favor and ditch the overwhelming commercial bar prep courses with their fire hose approach and contact Judy. Reflecting back on the experience, I can truly say that I passed the bar exam on the first time in the most efficient manner because of Judy. She is knowledgeable, hard working, organized, and genuinely cares about her students and their success on the bar exam and beyond.Nick, 59 lessons with Judy
The best tutor I have ever taken
After failing the NY Bar three times, I decided to get a tutor to help me pass the bar. I came into contact with Judy and it was the best decision I made for my bar preparation. We took two months to prepare for the Bar and Judy was with me every step of the way. She made sure I had a schedule that worked for me including a balanced nutritional diet. We met three to four times a week and each time Judy made sure I understood the material, she made sure I worked on strengthening my multiple choice scores, and she made me a better writer. She is very calm and patient with the process. Safe to say, I passed the February 2021 Bar above my expectations. She is the best tutor I have ever taken.Chantal, 27 lessons with Judy

She is extremely knowledgeable!
I am a NY UBE retaker and Judy helped me pass the February 2021 bar exam. She is extremely knowledgeable about the whole process and kept me on a schedule. I sought her ought later in my studying than other students and she immediately put me on track and helped me stay focused on strengthening my weaknesses. She’s always available and responds to all questions immediately. She supplied me with so much extra material, which was very helpful. She also rooted for me the entire way!Tabeetha, 11 lessons with Judy
Great tutor - must hire!!
Judy tutored me for about 2 months for the remote NY Bar exam in February 2021. I failed the October 2020 exam by a few points and I felt defeated. I was also stressed because I had just started a new job and didn't know how I was going to pass the second time with my full time work schedule. Judy broke down assignments in manageable steps so I didn't feel as overwhelmed and could focus on studying when I got home from work. She drilled me on rules and rule exceptions which definitely made the difference. The MBE was a weak spot for me, and she made sure I did enough multiple choice questions that I would be ready for exam day. I also used to blank on practice essays and by exam day, I was prepared to answer the MEEs. I wish I hired Judy the first time instead of spending so much money on a commercial bar prep course. Moreover, Judy was a great mentor to me. Aside from bar prep, I was able to talk to her about my job and get career advice from her.Alexandra, 28 lessons with Judy
A wonderful tutor!
Judy was a wonderful tutor that allowed me to lead each session and co-created a strategy plan to help me pass my MPRE. She was easy to work and communicate with. She made herself available to me as much as possible. She was also understanding and never made me feel like I wasn't progressing in my studies. In terms of additional help, she provided me more practice questions and helped me to reach the goal of doing 500 practice questions and four practice exams in a month. I work full time and she was able to work on my schedule. I passed the MPRE with a 103 which was way beyond my previous scores, Thank you Judy!Natasha, 12 lessons with Judy

Thorough and Wonderful Bar Tutor
Judy tutored me for the remote bar exam (MBE, MPT, MEE) in 2020/2021. She was wonderful! Her curriculum and approach to studying for the exam makes sense and is effective. She is honest about your progress and she never fails to motivate. Judy will very much kick you into gear and get you on a path to success. She tutored me for about 10 weeks and helped me pass the UBE on my second try. Not only does she motivate you and give you structure, she is extremely knowledgeable and a great teacher. She knows the topics thoroughly and makes the subject matter relatable and easier to remember. She also shares helpful resources and materials. I am very thankful that I picked her as my tutor. Thanks Judy!Jason, 10 lessons with Judy
After failing the Alabama bar twice, I needed something a little more intense than the usual commercial bar review course. This is where Judy saved me. Judy is the most thorough, knowledgeable, patient and encouraging tutor I've ever met. She is so amazing; she was able to predict the MEE subject, topic and questions for the February 2021 bar. My score jumped 46 points, thanks to Judy! I was more relaxed and more prepared this time and Im so grateful to her. Since passing, I've encouraged several of my friends to reach out to her because I would not have passed without her.Tonya, 33 lessons with Judy
