Information About Valerie - Hove teacher - (12 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Valerie:
I am a bi-lingual English/French qualified language teacher (BA Hons. PGCE, Cert L2 Dyscalculia) experienced in working teaching both languages and mathematics in secondary schools across 11-18, as well as primary. I have also taught both English and French to adult learners of varying nationalities.
I hold a current DBS.
I have worked with children, teenagers, adults within primary and secondary schools as a teacher and as a private tutor from home and offices. I have experience of exam preparation (CEE/GCSE/AS/A/BA) as well as conversational French and English.
I am also experienced in working with special needs in literacy and numeracy (Dyslexia/ADD/ ADHD) in schools, at my home, but now working online.
I am happy to tailor the tutoring to meet the individual needs of the pupil. I emphasise focus, fun, practice and homework, the latter two are essential to progression and the first two for a productive and enjoyable lesson.

She has been teaching my home-schooled son maths and french for more than a year.
In maths, my son was lacking confidence and didn't like this subject at all. After a few months, he has started to love maths and he regains his confidence!! She found so many ways of teaching him, making the lessons fun and interesting, always finding the best teaching solution for him!
In french, my son has now started to read fluently and even write! Valerie always finds subjects that interest him.
My son loves going to Valerie's lessons, he has built up his confidence and likes learning about maths and french now!
Valerie is a calm and patient teacher who enables students to enjoy the language as well as pass exams.
We have been provided with regular feedback on how our daughter is progressing and how we can support the tuition at home.
