Tutor Spotlight November 2019 - Valerie Stratton

 
Valerie Stratton has been a dedicated volunteer with the AASD Adult
Education Program since 2010. As a retired professor, she has graciously given
her time to assist international students to learn English. Currently, she is
teaching English to a student from Vietnam. Learning English is a primary goal for
the student, who must communicate with native English speakers at her job.
Valerie has had the pleasure of teaching students from all over the world and
often meets more hours than required, just to give extra help to her students. In
2018-19, she volunteered over 160 hours!

In her spare time, she is heavily involved in the local theater. She is not
only an actress, but a top-notch producer and an all-around Jack-of all-trades in
the theater. She also loves to travel, both domestic and internationally. Valerie
is an avid gardener too. She keeps a very busy schedule and has no intention of
slowing down!

Thank You, Valerie! We appreciate your dedication to our adult learners!
