About Valerie

I began giving ESL lessons to students at my local library at the age of 16. During college, I studied International Studies and Spanish Language. I studied abroad for two semesters in Madrid, during the summer of 2009 and the fall of 2010. During these semesters abroad, I studied Spanish language, lived with a host family, and held internships at Spanish companies. Following my graduation from American University, I moved to Galicia, Spain, where I worked as an English teaching assistant in a public school.

I have gained a great deal of experience as a teacher and tutor over the last four years. While at American University, I worked for Jumpstart, an Americorps organization aimed at providing support for underprivileged students in pre-school. At Jumpstart, I provided classroom support to low income neighborhoods in Washington DC, and implemented early childhood curriculum together with a team of 8 volunteers. In Galicia, Spain, I worked as a part-time teacher of English in a public school, with students ranging in age from 7 - 18. I also provided many students with one-on-one English tutoring during my time in Spain. During the past winter season (2014-2015), I worked in Vail, CO as a ski instructor, providing a safe learning environment for both children and adults. While at Vail, I was responsible for both group and private lessons with skiers of all ages and abilities. I was responsible for giving skiing lessons in Spanish and Portuguese as well as English.


I studied Spanish Language at American University, earning an undergraduate certificate in Spanish translation. Following graduation, I moved to Galicia, Spain, where I lived for two years and worked in a Spanish public school as a teaching assistant. I recently passed the Praxis World Language Spanish exam and am waiting for a Certificate of Eligibility to teach Spanish at the High School level in NJ.

I look forward from hearing from you and working together with you to improve your Spanish language skills.
