I studied Spanish with Vanessa for almost 6 months and thoroughly enjoyed her as a tutor. She was well organized and tailored her lessons to my needs. She not only showed me the language but also the culture that comes along with it. I wouldn’t be stopping if not for my work schedule getting hectic. If I could give her 6 stars I would! If you’re looking for an amazing Spanish teacher look no further. Thank you Vanessa!

I had the pleasure of taking classes with Vanessa for a couple of months but had to pause my learning because of personal reasons. Everything about Vanessa's classes was great. She was organized, equipped with a good teaching plan, many presentations, exercises and she was knowledgeable and patient. She adapts the classes to your needs. I recommend Vanessa to adults as well as children learning Spanish!

Great 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!
