Mr. Balas holds a Master of Business degree in Administration Master from Hartford University, 1990 in International Business.
Mr. Balas has extensive teaching experience in Berlitz Language School, Mountain View High School, and the American Business School in Lyon-France.
"I am taking full advantage of my cross-cultural fluency and dual citizenship with great experiences as a linguistic savvy for Yahoo!, Google Search for the French market," he says proudly.
Mr. Balas is excited to be a French teacher at BASIS Independent and "gets kids interested by answering their needs and development. Also my goal is to help them speak French every day."
Ironically enough, he explains, "I was born in the U.S. on the 14th of July, "Bastille Day", the French independence day, not the 4th of July- and my name is Steve, so French! I have the experience to teach in English at the American Business School in France and I am now starting to teach French in the best American School in the U.S.! Also, I am back to school when my twins graduate from high school!"
