Valerie, one of the visionary co-founders of The Bridge Tutorial since its inception in 2003, embarked on this journey with a group of like-minded parents who shared her passion for a Biblically-based education. Her unwavering dedication lies in creating an enriching environment where students can nurture their confidence in writing, gain profound insights in reading, and discover their unique voices for articulating ideas. Beyond her role in lesson planning and teaching, Valerie cherishes precious moments with her husband and adores spending time with her grandbabies.
