About valerie B.

valerie teaches: Ages 5 and up
Special needs
Teaching since: 2005
Last sign in: Last week


I am a french native speaker and have been living in Missouri with my family for 14 years. Before coming to the USA, I lived in Madrid, Spain for 12 years, where I graduated from the Universidad Complutense and La Escuela de Traductores. I also have a degree in Tourism.

As a native speaker I can teach you impeccable french and also make you discover a very rich and beautiful culture.
Languages are my passion, I can speak Spanish and english, and am currently learning Italian.
I love to teach students and make them realize how easy it is to learn a new language. My experience is mostly with children as a private teacher. My 2 children are trilingual.

I had to learn Spanish when I moved to Madrid, and then english when we came to the USA, so I truly know what it is like to struggle with a new language, so I can easily understand and help you. I am very patient and will always adapt my method of teaching to my student's needs and difficulties.
