About Valerie

I have extensive experience working with children and adults in tutoring as well as training. I have tutored in a variety of subjects, including ESL, and I have also designed and implemented training courses for adults. I strive to engage the student with a personalized and constructive approach. Every person learns differently, and I seek to establish a good interpersonal relationship with my students in order to ensure a solid foundation for learning.

I earned a J.D. with honors from a first tier law school and a B.S. with honors in Computer Science. Since undergraduate school, I have tutored high school and college students in mathematics, sciences, and other subjects.

I recently held the position of Dean's Fellow at the University of Wisconsin Law School, where I lead work-groups for first-year law students teaching them the study skills they need to succeed in their law school and legal careers.

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.

General Computer

I have been incredibly computer literate since an early age. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, cum laude. Additionally, I have years of training experience, which allows me to effectively share my knowledge with others.

Macintosh

I have been using OS X devices for 9 years. I also have experience setting up home network with both Apple and non-apple routing devices.

Russian

I was born in Moscow, Russia, and lived there until I was 12 years old. While in Russia, I received highest marks for Russian Language and literature. I still have family in Russia, so I travel back there often and speak fluently and without an accent.

Study Skills

I earned my Bachelor of Science with a Minor in Business Administration, with honors, while working 25 hours per week. I also graduated at the top of my class from a first tier Law School while working part time. My success in school is largely due to my ability to multitask, plan, and studying "smarter", not "harder".
