About Victoria

I have over 10 years of experience as a College French teacher. I designed and took a group of French students to Montréal for a weekend immersion. We had so much fun! I have traveled all over the world and my favorite subject next to languages is Art History, in which I am extremely well versed, having seen many of the originals in European museums. Prior to teaching college French, I taught ESL to speakers of Japanese, Russian, French and Dutch. I have been told that I am especially good working on a one-to-one basis with students of all levels. My experience with teenage students includes being a public school tutor in French, History and English. I can help them pass their exams but they must be willing to work too. I welcome an experience to work with your son/daughter as I am a seasoned teacher, polite, honest and especially hard-working. I have over 10 years of experience as a College French teacher.

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.

Bible Studies

I have travelled personally to Israel. I also have studied the Bible intensively as well as listened to many new Christian apologetics in their description and interpretation of the Bible. I approach Bible study from not only a historical perspective, but from the perspective that I have actually BEEN to those places that they speak about in the Bible!

French

I have a Masters Degree in French and Education. I have studied in Paris and Canada. I now teach French at a local Albany, NY college.

Music History

I have studied piano performance privately for many years. Currently, I am a choral member for several prestigious Choruses in the Capital District Area. I also am a fill-in accompanist for a Catholic Mass. I have travelled to Europe and seen many opera houses and heard most Operas in different languages.

Piano

As a pianist for over 30 years, I can teach you how to position your hands on the keyboard, do scales and arpeggios and read key signatures. If you have a Piano in your home I can help you with practicing hands separately to increase speed and dexterity. Do you have elementary books to practice with or what? I would need to come a min. of 3x a week to help you with this. I love music and you will love it too!!

Psychology

I have 8 years' experience working with persons with Mental Health disabilities and volunteer experience with Forensic Mental Health cases. I have worked with persons with severe diagnoses to those with mild impairments and seen the sociological impact on their lives. I am confident in teaching elementary psychology principles to students.

Public Speaking

I am a teacher by profession. I am also a singer by avocation- hence I am good at projecting my voice. I know how to memorize lines and assist others with the same.

SAT Reading

I have excellent credentials to assist students with their English reading and writing comprehension. I am a College language teacher and very patient.
