Meet Our Teachers
Veronica is a native speaker of Russian language. Being in love with different cultures and their history from a childhood, she has decided to devote all the energy to “living through” new mentalities and learning new languages by travelling and teaching children over three continents.
Veronica obtained a B.A. in International Law from the Belarus State University and then did postgraduate work in linguistics: both in English and Spanish.
Veronica has been teaching Russian for over 2 years in Belarus; and also volunteered to tutor the language to children with disabilities in the U.S.A.; in addition to that, she spent the last year in China giving English classes to the students between 4-5 years of age.
As a teacher, Veronica believes that parents are the best teachers and role models for their child, therefore, positive communications between parents and teachers is a key method in her work. She looks forward to be the best teacher for You or Your child!
Ciao. My name is Sara and I am here to use my 10 years of teaching experience to help you succeed in your dream. For the last 4 years I have been teaching Italian language to students in a top 3 Pontifical University in Rome, Italy. I was born in Rome, Italy and graduated with honors from the University of Rome, La Sapienza, with a degree in Asian Studies and Cultures. I hold a master in Teaching Italian Language. In 2006 I moved to Japan where I worked as an Italian teacher for two years. I also have Ditals II, Teaching Italian as a Foreign language Certification. I am proud of my culture and love to share my language and upbringing with my students. I’m a passionate Italian food and art lover so whether you’re reading biographical information about the brilliant painter Caravaggio or figuring out how to cook some of your favorite Italian dishes, learning Italian with me is simply essential!

Hi, my name is Esther Kim.
I was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. When I was 15, my family moved to the state, and I had to learn English as my second language. So, I understand the challenges when it comes to learning a new language. I’ve been teaching Korean since 2012. I have taught in private and school settings, and I have taught all ages and levels. I have three children of my own, and I’ve been teaching them Korean ever since they were born. They can all speak and read Korean fluently.
I love Korean culture and history. I am ready to share my knowledge with all my students. I am a red belt in Taekwondo and planning on getting a black belt one day. I also play a Korean instrument Kayagum. I am interested in K-pop, K-drama, K-beauty, and K-food. So, if you are into any of the K-culture, let’s talk!
I have undergraduate degrees in teaching Korean as a second language and American sign language. I am fluent in Korean Sign Language as well. Currently, I am working on my Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education at CU Denver.
Study shows that Korean is one of the most challenging languages to learn, but l am here to help. I can’t wait to meet all my students.
Esther teaches all levels of Korean.

Bonjour, je m’appelle Elizabeth (Libby) Deaton. I am a 2018 University of Missouri – St. Louis graduate where I received my Bachelors degrees in French and Education with K-12 teacher certification. After graduation I promptly took an assistant High School English teaching position in Montpellier, France where I lived one year to further develop my skills as a teacher and solidify my fluency in French. Now back in the United States, I am thrilled to continue my work in French education at Bon Voyage World Languages Academy! I have taught full time as a High School French teacher, and have internship experience with Elementary students in the immersion school setting. I love teaching French because I get to share Francophone language and culture with my students as well as teach them invaluable life skills that take them beyond the realm of academia. When I’m not teaching I love to read, cook, dance, travel (especially in the south of France) and spend time with my family which includes one very large, fluffy, gray cat. I have a deep passion for languages, the arts and nature and all of its living things. I look forward to seeing you in class, merci!
