An accredited 25 year teacher of English and German in the Bakersfield, CA area.

Methodology

I use a variety of approaches in order to find what works with each student. I also like to challenge my students a little bit outside of their comfort zone to make them stretch and get them thinking. I love to have fun with the students. I believe that if learning is fun than students don't even realize they are learning.

Background

I have a Master's Degree in Educational Theater for High Schools and Colleges, as well as a Bachelor's in Theater Education and German. I have a credential in English and German. I have been teaching for over 25 years in two states. I am a highly qualified teacher in CA.

Valerie is my aunt and I've known her my whole life. You'd be hard pressed to find a more caring, patient, hard-working individual. She had decades of experience teaching high school English, which has given her expert knowledge in this area.

I met Valerie through a local service group. She is awesome. I have seen her teach on multiple occasions. I was even part of her class for more than a year. I love how she really knows her stuff. She also can break down her vast knowledge into terms easy to understand. Her best quality is how much she cares for her students. It’s not just a job for her, rather a passion.

Valerie is fun and engaging. She has helped me edit my writing and improve my English skills since I was young. She loves people and is fun to work with.
