With over ten years of teaching experience, I have been successful in helping students achieve their goals across various mathematics curricula, including pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II, and Trigonometry. Consistently obtaining passing scores has not been my only strength, but I utilize effective structures to help students who may have additional learning needs.
I would love to help build your confidence in mathematics -- whether you are strong in math or if you may loathe it. Check out how I would help you by viewing actual math questions that I have answered for other students in the "Resources" tab. Or, read some of the testimonials given by parents who have worked with me in the past, under the "Reviews" tab.
This math lady will be to YOUR rescue! :0)

My son loves working with Miss Vanessa! She is very patient and she is able to make things easier for him to understand. We wanted to boost his skills and confidence as he prepares to test into private schools and Miss Vanessa is working hard for us to obtain our goals. She is very patient, flexible and she provides the tools he needs to master each skill set. We give Miss Vanessa an A+!!!Deidre, 2 lessons with VanessaTutor responded:
I sincerely appreciate your positive feedback, Deidre! It has been a pleasure working with your son as we prepare for the ISEE. He consistently challenges himself to understand topics -- some of which are beyond the scope of his current curriculum; he also maintains a positive attitude while learning new concepts. Thank you, again, for your ongoing support and I look forward to working with him in the future!
Highly Skilled, Committed, and Highly Recommended
As a parent, I couldn't be more pleased with Vanessa who goes above and beyond. She is a very helpful, well organized, always prepared and an awesome tutor. She is very knowledgeable in the subject matter and has been able to make a connection with my daughter (which is very hard to do). She is committed to my daughter's success. Before my daughters first lesson, Vanessa not only took the time to consult with me as the parent but my daughter as well to quickly pinpoint her strengths and weaknesses to determine where she was having difficulty. To keep track, she created and maintain a syllabus and after meeting twice a week, a detailed, descriptive session summaries is emailed to keep us informed on what is covered in each lesson, her progress, and practice assignments on what should be worked on to solidify what was learned. In addition, exams are given at the end of the week. She is very excellent at reducing the more complicated math terms into simple, everyday language that helped my daughter gain an understanding of how to apply specific formulas. Vanessa has never hesitated to put our minds at ease with her consistent communication and has made sure to answer any of our concerns regarding my daughter’s progress. I'm so impressed, I plan to have Vanessa assist my daughter with all of her Math courses, even throughout college if need be. I am truly thankful to have found Vanessa, her professionalism, knowledge of Mathematics and teaching methods are outstanding! Thank you for your continued commitment to my daughter’s success.Corinthia, 2 lessons with VanessaTutor responded:
Thank you very much for sharing your positive experience and appreciation for my services! With your parental commitment, we have become a very strong team. As I expressed before, I aim to provide enriching information, resources, to help your daughter achieve her intended goals. Thank you, again, for the opportunity to work with you and your family!
Excellent and patient tutor
My daughter has really been struggling and Vanessa is very patient. On the first day she gave my daughter a diagnostic test not just to cover math material but to assess her feelings about math and how she gets help from her teacher. She also contacted the teacher to get as much insight as possible so she could work with the teacher. Ms. V is always early for appointments and her tutoring sessions start on time. I like that she is very organized and always comes prepared for each session with problems and activities. My daughter is in High School but still loves that she gets stickers as reinforcement.Thembi, 11 lessons with VanessaTutor responded:
Thank you for the positive feedback, Mrs. Thembi! It has been a pleasure working with your daughter. She works hard to understand every topic that I go over in our sessions as well as employing the study methods that I suggest. I look forward to continue to work with you and her in the future!
Vanessa provides outstanding academic support. Initially she began tutoring sessions in preparation for the HSA Algebra exam in December 2014. In addition, she is now conducting tutoring sessions in algebra and geometry. Vanessa is organized and well prepared which facilitates effective learning. In order to reinforce material covered in each session, she gives assignments that include the creation of vocabulary flash cards and completion of work packets. Also, she provides addresses for various websites that contain math problems and games. Furthermore, her review for each session is very detailed and documents what instruction she provided. Vanessa is professional, yet she is personable and easy to work with. Her commitment to increasing the comprehension of subject matter is quite obvious and impressive. I am very pleased with and appreciative of Vanessa's expertise and dedication.QuoVadis, 28 lessons with VanessaTutor responded:
Thank you for your positive feedback regarding my expertise, dedication, and professionalism. It is very much appreciated! Your granddaughter has been very focused in every session, striving to comprehend the topics that I teach. She also shows signs that she works hard at home to reinforce what she has learned in our sessions. I look forward to working with her in the future, as I partner with you in helping her reach her academic goals. Again, thank you, for such positive feedback!
Easy to reach, comes prepared and has an excellent personality. My daughter likes her a lot. She is looking forward to Math which is unusual.Caren, 7 lessons with VanessaTutor responded:
I appreciate your kind words! I am also glad that our sessions have piqued your daughter's interest in the subject of mathematics. Thank you for your continual support and input to help meet her academic needs.
Simply the best tutor I've worked with on WyzAnt. Vanessa is extremely professional and provides feedback after each session. This allows for me to use positive reinforcement and ensure my nieces are utilizing the skills they acquire doing the session! My nieces who receive tutoring are very happy with the lessons and feel comfortable with the material. I remember reading over an email Vanessa provided regarding my nieces improvement and it made me cry to see the noticeable increase of their grades! She’s really good!Latrice, 28 lessons with VanessaTutor responded:
Thank you, Latrice, for such positive feedback! It is very much appreciated and reinforcing. I also want to thank you for playing an active role in both your nieces' educations. I believe the gains that we have seen in each young lady is due to our collective effort and I look forward to continuing to help them reach their academic goals in the future.
