About Valerie

I am a native French speaker with several years experience tutoring French.

Aside from English I am fluent in French and Hebrew.
After graduating from High School in Paris (more specifically receiving my Baccalaureat), I lived in Israel for a year before returning to Paris and ultimately coming to New York for college. I hold a BA in English Communications from YU Stern and an MBA in Marketing and Management from NYU Stern School of Business. I am confident in my abilities to teach French or Hebrew languages, prepare anyone for exams or even a trip to France or Israel! I believe in the importance of focusing on conversation skills and not simply book learning. My current work as a teacher:

-Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels
-Vocabulary, grammar, reading comprehension, pronunciation and conversation skills
-General language and culture sessions as well as concentrated exam or vacation prep.

I will help you feel completely ready for your next trip to France or Israel, or an upcoming event with French or Hebrew speaking friends/family.

Aside from thee 2 languages I am offer help in the following areas:

-Help you prepare for the TOEFL exam (Test of English as a Foreign Language). Though I hold both a BA and graduate degree from US institutions, I had to take the TOEFL as I graduated from a non US (French) high school. I am very familiar with the test.
-Guide you with the interview process for Business School. I went to NYU Stern and believe that the interview is what could make or break your acceptance. I have consulted for Veritas MBA Admissions Consulting where I have assisted students throughout the entire MBA admissions process, helping them share their unique story with the admissions committee in the most persuasive and compelling way.
-Help with your Business School Essays once a draft has been created. I will not write the essay for you but will guide you in what is relevant and will help with sentence and paragraph construction. I am an accomplished English writer (I write a blog and do all the business writing for the business I own). Again, my work with Veritas, which only hires consultants from top Business Schools, shows that I am well suited to help Business School applicants with their admissions essays.

I could meet in the Bronx or in Manhattan. In your office or in a Starbucks if that works for you.
Looking forward to hearing from you and working with you!

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.

Hebrew

I spent a year post high school in a program in Israel from where I received some college credit. The lessons were mostly taught in Hebrew. I spent 5 years working for the Government of Israel in NY, which is Israel territory and worked all day in Hebrew. In school I learned Hebrew reading, writing and vocabulary from a young age. I also learned biblical studies.
