Valentina has always been passionate about languages, starting taking regular private classes for both English and French since she was 9. However, she then went on to study IT before going back to her passion, languages.
Forward to 2009, she spent two years working for a French multinational company and the European Union, when she discovered a passion for teaching and qualified as a teacher trainer. She then owned and ran her own language school in her home country for 8 years.
In 2014, her journey as an international teacher began when she succeeded in obtaining her teaching qualification for adult students in Dublin, Ireland. That same year, she worked for Kaplan International in Kent, and the next year, returned to work for them in Brighton.
In December 2017, Valentina opened her online Modern Foreign Languages School for adults in England.
At present, Valentina runs two businesses in the United Kingdom, with headquarters in Royal Leamington Spa.
VP Empower, a coaching, mentoring and training academy, and VP Languages, an online language school for adults, collaborating with a great team of OET and IELTS expert teachers.
