Bio

Hi! I'm Vanessa and I have been living in California on and off for the past 5 years.

I got my major in teaching Physical Education and my minor in teaching English as a second language.
Studying another language fascinated me and has helped me a lot in teaching German to students as their second language.

I knew pretty early on that I wanted to become a teacher which is why I got into coaching sports when I was still in high school. I got my coaching license in Volleyball and also became a snowboard coach (got my license for teaching snowboarding during my university years). Throughout the years of becoming a teacher myself I did not only coach a lot but also tutored different subjects for all different age groups. I assisted teachers in school and held after school tutoring classes. In 2015 I decided to become an Au Pair (a live-in nanny) in Encinitas (CA) for a lovely family with 2 children. I became a part of the family during my 18 months stay and was assisting during homework assignments, teaching them German, doing hands-on activities with them like crafting, or enjoying outdoor activities and reading etc. Still to this day we see each other every months.

One of the most important things I have taken away from my years of teaching, coaching and tutoring - is to really get to know your student individually. Everyone learns in their own unique way and therefore needs different methods of teaching. Having worked in a school that introduced a new system based on the principles of humanity, solidarity, and sustainability, I truly believe that trusting in the potential of students, empowering them, teaching them to learn how to learn, and making sure they stay curious - is the way to go. To bring out each child's natural desire to learn new things, to be creative and explore. What if everything they want is possible? It is important for me to work w
