Bonjour, my name is Valentina and I am a certified and experienced French and Bilingual teacher.I currently teach French in Middle school.
In High School, I went to High school for French Language,after that I graduated with MA from University of Sofia in Bulgaria,majoring in French Language and literature and minor in teaching English. I spent a year working in France. I have over 9 years experience teaching French in Middle and High school. I also have extensive experience teaching French,ESL,Russian and Bulgarian languages to young children. I know how frustrating and efforts consuming language learning can be, so as a tutor I try to explain concepts in various ways to accommodate different learning styles and make them easy to understand in order to improve skills and increase language proficiency. In addition to teaching languages, I also have helped students from Pre-K to 5 grade improve their skills in Phonics, Reading, Spelling, ESL, Math and Science. I am dependable, flexible, result-oriented and outgoing teacher.
