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 my daughter’s situation. I would highly recommend Vanessa to anyone who is looking to improve skills in Spanish.

After just 4 tutoring sessions with Vanessa - less than 1 month - my son brought his quarter grade from C to B+. I wish I'd found Vanessa earlier. She's very caring, very punctual, and also very flexible. Due to my son's school schedule, it's hard to get a tutoring session during weekdays, but she's willing to work around our schedule to get my son the help that he needs before his exams.
"Great Tutor! Very Patient and Thorough"

Vanessa is a great tutor! She has helped me improve my overall Spanish listening, reading, speaking and writing skills. I've been a student for over a year now, and I would definitely recommend her as a tutor to anyone that is interested in learning or mastering the Spanish language.
"Very Flexible and Results"
Stacy from Leesburg, VA on 6/23/14
Vanessa worked with my daughter on Spanish 3. With Vanessa's help my daughter's received an A on her spoken final exam and an A- on the written. Vanessa was very flexible offering face to face and video conferencing so that we could maximize time spent.
Thank you so much for your help.
"Great preparation to go to Spain!"
Frederick from Fairfax, VA on 6/16/14
Eight sessions with Vanessa really helped me improve my verbal skills and comfort before going to Spain for an immersion program. Thanks to her, I'll be more comfortable speaking Spanish when I get off the plane. She tailored our sessions to my specific needs, using a variety of materials to familiarize me with the vocabulary and phrases I'll need for different situations. She's a high energy tutor, who kept me engaged and positive every time we met. I recommend her highly to anybody who needs help with their Spanish.

I am so impressed with how caring, punctual, and organized Vanessa K. was while tutoring my son Spanish 3 at a high school level. In a few tutoring sessions, she was able to help my son bring his grade from C to an A. She contacted his teacher and knew exactly what needed to be done. She was patient, encouraging, and knowledgeable. I also loved how she always followed each tutoring session with a verbal feedback or an email to let me know how things went. You rock Vanessa!

Vanessa is fantastic. My son's Spanish grades have improved significantly. We have been very pleased with Vanessa. I wish that we would have found her earlier in the school year.
"Great tutor with rich experience"
Helen from Fairfax, VA on 4/2/14
Vanessa is a tutor with rich experience. She knows how to guide and communicate with kids, and my 6-year son likes her very much. She also knows what kind of material is best for kids and where to find it. I'm happy to have found a tutor like this for my son.
"Her lesson is very customized on my children's needs"
Dongim from Chantilly, VA on 3/3/14
She has tried to find the weaknesses my kids have over the last few lessons. After catching what the weakness is, she makes a concentrated effort to make up for that weak point. It makes the lesson much more effective! That is the reason I expect a next lesson with her. Thanks Vanessa!
Kristie from Reston, VA on 1/3/14
Very patient and easy to work with. Vanessa is really good at focusing on specific struggles and helping to learn the language. I learn more in one hour with her than I do the whole week in school.
"Great Tutor and is very flexible "
Namam from Chantilly, VA on 11/15/13
Before Vanessa my son was getting D's and C 's in Spanish 3. After Vanessa my son is getting A's and B's now! She is a great tutor and my son loves her. If your son/daughter needs help in Spanish she is the right person to teach him/her!
Susan from Middleburg, VA on 11/12/13
Vanessa has taken a great interest in helping my daughter. She works on exactly what she needs to know for class and follows up by emailing extra practice. She has even helped her get ahead in her class. Thanks to Vanessa, my daughter's confidence and grade has improved.
Aretha from Ashburn, VA on 10/1/13
Vanessa is a very patient and thorough tutor. She teaches you in a way that you will understand and grasp everything fast. I have learned so much since I started taking lessons with her. She's the best!
Maria from Haymarket, VA on 5/30/13
Ms Vanessa is an extremely dedicated and patient tutor. She first spent time trying to understand the need of the student and then tailored her training/teaching adaptable to the individual. She provided my student with a broader range of knowledge than that gained from school instruction. MY daughter's confidence grew, but she also learned that a second language requires patience and aptitude. I strongly recommend Ms Vanessa as a tutor. We really enjoyed her willingness to work around our busy schedule as well for lessons.
Melissa from Herndon, VA on 3/13/13
Vanessa is the most passionate, experienced and knowledgeable teacher. She customizes my lessons according to my needs and interests, such as focusing on grammar and listening comprehension of a variety of Spanish cultures/accents. I always walk away from our sessions with tangible lessons learned to apply and practice throughout my week and in my professional career, as I work with many Spanish-speaking clients. Vanessa’s enthusiasm and patience is so encouraging, and it really has given me the confidence and motivation to improve. I would highly recommend Vanessa to anyone looking to gain command over the Spanish language, no matter their level of competency (beginner or advanced).
"Very good tutor. Nice, and tries very hard to help me understand."
Jeff from Fairfax, VA on 2/19/13
She is very nice. She really tries to work with me. We will work on certain areas until I understand.
Jeff from Chantilly, VA on 1/23/13
Vanessa is very enthusiastic and patient with my high school son. He has made significant improvements in a very short time with Vanessa.
"Very, very, patient!"
Myron from Gainesville, VA on 9/7/12
Vanessa is a great tutor, where do I begin? She creates a great organized lesson for me each week. Vanessa is extremely patient with me when I admittedly don't put in as much study time as she or I would like. She even makes fun of me sometimes but the bottom line is that she's doing a great job of teaching me her language and I would recommend her to anyone.
Sean from Herndon, VA on 8/6/12
Vanessa is an amazing teacher. She is both patient and thorough, catering each lesson to my weak points. She makes sure I understand the 'why' as well as the 'how' behind the grammar rules, and challenges me on a weekly basis. I never feel as if I've wasted my time. She gives me the confidence to keep working harder, and even when I doubt myself, she pushes me to dig deeper because she knows I can do it. Her method is completely comprehensive, and she uses a variety of oral exercises, grammar drills, conversations, and written texts to ensure proficiency is complete. This has been an excellent experience for me and I would highly recommend her to any student (beginner or advanced) looking to improve their mastery over a second language.
