I was born in Madrid, Spain. I am trilingual, in Spanish, English and German. I left Spain for my last year of college and went to Germany on an Erasmus scholarship to then graduate in tourism management. I liked the experience so much that I ended up living and working there! Later, I met my husband and then moved to the US.

I have always loved tutoring and teaching, I have been teaching since I was in college, in Madrid, and also in Germany when I lived there. I have tutored privately but also at a school. It is such a rewarding experience that I decided to do it full time. I enjoy working with kids but also teaching adults and seeing them grow and master the language. I speak Spanish in my classes 100%; for me that's so important. Your hearing needs to get used to listening and understanding, but of course I translate into English when needed. I work with your level and goals and we will focus in what you need to improve the most. For those who also love to know about our cultures, food, history, I would love to teach you about it while dong it in Spanish!

My Spanish is the Spanish from Europe. It's a bit rare here in the US as you have more people from South America. I think we speak the 'proper Spanish'. Let's get together and get started!
I can't wait to meet you!

Elementary (K-6th)

Teaching is my passion. I am originally from Spain and I have been tutoring all my life. I am comfortable teaching all basic elementary skills, including math, reading, spelling, and writing. I was educated at Alcala de Henares University, where I graduated with honors. have lots of experience with small children, and patience is the key to success. I am very experienced helping bilingual students get through the difficulties of being bilingual and overcome their obstacles... I help elementary children improve their reading, understand their math concepts and be creative in writing by also teaching them to think out of the box. Lets get started!

ESL/ESOL

I can help you develop your writing and composition skills, boost your vocabulary and grammar, and
strengthen your reading and language skills. I have experience working with students from different nationalities; tutoring adults, elementary and high school students. For many years I have tutored students who were at risk of failing, or who struggled with English as a second language.

Spanish

Spanish is my mother tongue. I teach Spanish at any level, from beginners to proficiency, to kids, adults and business people who need it for work. We will practice speaking, understanding, reading, grammar. I will asses you in our first session and then I will tailor made your study plan according to your level and needs. I will be happy to teach you about our culture, heritage, history while learning the language if interested!

Amazing tutor! — I have never been happier with any tutor my daughter has so far. Vanessa works miracle. After long history of struggling in Spanish, my daughter’s grade became “A-” after only two months of tutoring. Vanessa is a very serious teacher, she checks my daughter’s progress not only during the meetings but also through emails during the week. She even contacted the Spanish teacher in order to understand ...
