About Vanessa


Bio

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! Years later I 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....

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.
Right now I am a Spanish teacher working full time at a school, so Im doing tutoring on the side.
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!

Wonderful Teacher!!!

Ms. Vanessa is very patient and detail oriented. She made learning foreign language so fun. My son is new to Spanish and really loves his first lesson. Thank you very much!!!

Cindy, 2 lessons with Vanessa

First session went well - looking forward to improving in my Spanish 4 class!

Reviewed what student is currently doing in class, what course workload looks like, what student's background is and what needs to be done to improve student's understanding and grade in Spanish 4!

Great Tutor

Vanessa has been an excellent tutor for my twins who took 7th Grade Spanish for one quarter. She is an expert in Spanish as well as patient, encouraging, and flexible to help them do well on their tests and homework. They got A's! Highly recommend.

J, 5 lessons with Vanessa

Great tutor: very patient and ecouraging

So far, my son has had two sessions with Ms. Vanessa, and he feels more confident and has a better understanding of the vocabulary and terms in order to do better in Spanish 3. Kudos to Ms. Vanessa.

Yolaanda, 20 lessons with Vanessa

Awesome Tutor!

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.

Sean, 161 lessons with Vanessa

Very Flexible and Results

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.

Stacy, 1 lesson with Vanessa

Great preparation to go to Spain!

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.

Fantastic!

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!
