I always tailor my lessons to my students needs. Some people just want conversation in a relaxed environment, some people want to improve grammar... Even if you just want to "survive" during your vacations down South, or you want to immerse into Latin culture, I have the material and approach perfect for you.

I would highly recommend Vanessa as a tutor. She is very well organized and from the beginning did a fantastic job of tailoring the lessons to suit my learning needs. I find the topics well presented and I enjoy the classes very much.
Vanessa tutored my teenage son in Spanish and was professional, personable and flexible. I highly recommend her as a Spanish tutor.
I have been learning Spanish with Vanessa since September of 2018. I chose her as I was interested in learning the language from a Spanish native. She is a diligent tutor who is able to design the program according to the student needs. I would say I have a good grasp of Spanish grammar now because of her. She uses various teaching aids - exercises, games and appropriate homework for steady improvement. She is patient and does not mind going over and repeating things from the past in order to reinforce a concept. She can explain things well and the logic behind some of the rules in order to get a good grasp of the language. Finally she has a very pleasant manner and makes learning a new language fun!
