About Vanessa

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!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

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
