My name is Valerie. I will be your native French teacher. I aim to instill the confidence and enthusiasm that’s required to learn French from the comfort of your own home. My "raison d'être" is to support my students and help them to achieve their goals, whether they are learning in the UK or from a distance.
You are a click away from me. This is the beauty of technology.

I am really excited about learning french with Valerie.

Valerie is a great teacher. She makes learning french very enjoyable. She is friendly and laughs often. Her laughter helps to settle my nerves and also it encourages me to engage fully with the lesson. As I am a complete beginner she has focused on making the lessons fun in order to keep me motivated and interested. She encourages me to speak french which has had the effect of broadening my vocabulary and knowledge of grammar. As I am an avid reader, Valerie has introduced stories into our lessons; and being able to read and understand simple stories has been rewarding and good for my confidence. Valerie has been brilliant and I am looking forward to the day when I am mistaken for a frenchman!

Easy to understand and chat too and made tutoring a pleasure dor the time I was with her especially with her sense of humour. Highly recommend her as a tutor and an asset to any role she throws herself into
Although she didn’t teach me French, she did train me for my current job role.
She was so lovely and was very patient with me. I had just moved house and the service was awful but she always made a way.
The way in which she teaches is amazing and the quality of service she provides is outstanding. Not only that but she I still keep in contact with her to this day and I finished my training in August!
11/10 would definitely recommend!

I have had the pleasure of working with Valerie on a one-to-one basis for several weeks. She was exceptionally attentive to my personal needs and kept the lessons challenging with a variety of subjects and exercises. Val is highly observant and very conscientious, so the lessons were designed specifically for me. In addition, she adjusted a lesson on the go to focus on a specific verbal or grammatical difficulty.
Learning French with her is extremely rewarding. Val is very encouraging, kind and patient. I would highly recommend her as a French tutor!
I've had the pleasure to work with Val as trainer on a multi lingual campaign. Val has a very nurturing manner and is always keen to expand her own knowledge and experience!
Valerie is a very friendly and patient French teacher. Being a French native speaker she pays a lot of attention to accuracy and correct pronunciation. With her broad international experience she understands the needs of different cultural backgrounds and as such can tailor her teaching for maximum effect.
My son attended French classes with Valerie. The classes were always fun filled, creative and relaxed. Valerie was a calm, knowledgeable, patient teacher who engaged the children in a really positive, enthusiastic manner. I'd highly recommend.
Valerie is a lovely woman with a lot of patience, she is ideal to learn a new language with, she would never make you feel bad for trying your very best. If you gave Valerie the chance to teach you it is something that you will enjoy and won't feel like a chore in any way.

I had the pleasure of working with Valerie for over 2 years. She was an absolute delight to work with and I would trust her through and through. Truly a gentle, loyal soul and friends.
Valerie and I met during her stay in South Africa. At that time a group of colleagues and I were working at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and for work purposes was recommended to learn French. Valerie is an excellent tutor with a lot of patience and understanding. Being trustworthy, reliable and honest. She made her classes fun to attend. I would highly recommend Valerie as a tutor, she is brilliant!
I took my 4 year old to a 6 week block of French Lessons with Valerie. I found her teaching style to be very effective that I would recommend Adults would get just as much out of her Children’s classes as we most certainly did learning with our Children.
Valerie is a dedicated teacher with highly thought out unique lessons. Her creativity brings Music, Art, and the human connection to draw on the learning experience. We always are left with a good mood and keen spirit for more.
Valarie is French native, so working with her you immediately ‘up your game’ with pronunciation. She helps you to quickly get confident speaking. She also has a great grasp of French grammar and makes it fun to learn, using lots of different activities. Very quickly you will become fluent working with Valarie
