About this pro
I needed to find someone to help my roommate with writing a paper that could connect with her. Vanessa met with her and quickly developed a rapport and immediately explored ways to get her to "think" to write the paper on her own.Jun 28, 2018Verified
She is great! I was in need of a SAT english tutor in order to compete for a spot at the United States Military Academy at West Point. She showed up on time and if needed would stay extra to make sure I actually improved. I was extremely confident heading into my test and was accepted into West Point. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of any help with english. In addition, she helped me with writing a letter to West Point on why I want to attend. She is great!!!May 26, 2017Verified
Vanessa has been tutoring me for about two months, and I have never learned so much in such a short period. She has many tips and tricks to help me remember all of the rules of the Spanish language. She is a very kind and energetic person who is always willing to change her schedule to fit your own. I would strongly recommend Vanessa to anybody who needs help!Apr 7, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I am flexible with pricing and I try to work with any budget. Generally I charge $50-$75 per hour, as I do have a degree in the main subjects that I tutor (Spanish and German), as well as many years of teaching and tutoring experience. However, I price every student individually based on their needs and budget.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to get to know my prospective clients and let them get to know me before we begin working together. I want to fully understand their needs before I create a learning plan and quote a price. I understand that there are several different learning styles and each person learns in their own way. It is my goal to make sure that I provide the best delivery for what my clients are looking for so that they get the most out of their learning experience. I am confident in my teaching abilities and my passion for languages is infectious which will be evident when we meet!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a degree (B.A.) in Foreign Languages and Linguistics. (Languages: Spanish and German). I have studied abroad and lived in a Spanish-speaking country and a German-speaking country with zero target-language knowledge before my arrival in either country. This gives me a unique understanding of what most students are experiencing while learning a new language, as well as how they need to learn. My full-immersion learning process has allowed me to have a superior knowledge of both Spanish and German and I love sharing that gift with others!
