Frederique Battestini

Owner  and French Instructor
Frederique was born and raised on the Island of Corsica.  She came to Seattle back in 1993 and was hosted by a family in West Seattle while attending John Fitzgerald Kennedy High-school.  She graduated with her High School Diploma and went on to community college and college.  While in college she met her husband Wen Lin and they are now the proud parents of Alex.  Raising Alex bilingual has been a mission and a passion for Frederique and Wen.  This fits so well with Polly-Glot Tots  and its mission and dream of providing language instruction to neighborhood children at a young age when their ability to learn is most natural.   Frederique is thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to share her passion for languages with others.
