About Valerie

Welcome! I'm glad you've found my page. Allow me to tell you a bit about myself as an educator. I just returned from Oxford, England, where I took a seminar: "Shakespeare in History." Now I'm getting ready to return to the arts school I've worked at for nine years in both the English and theatre department. I hold degrees in both of these subjects, finally finishing with a Ph.D. in Creative Writing from Florida State University. I believe my combined studies of both theatre and English have made me a better teacher in both areas.

I have vast teaching experience ranging from college, high school, private lessons, and teaching English in Japan. I am grateful for all of these opportunities to experience so many different types of students and teaching situations. I counted up the years once and, at that time, realized I had spent half of my life in school! I loved school as much as teaching. I also believe the best teachers are also and always students.

Along with the Florida teacher's certificate, I am also certified in ESOL. I have years experience training students for the SAT, and I have taught adults and young people the skill of writing -- whether essays or nonfiction. And I can also help those who need auditions for admissions to college-level theatre departments!

I look forward to working with you, and I have a flexible schedule. Contact me and let's get started on helping you achieve your goals.
