Hi! My name is Vanessa, I am from Peru and I currently live in Washington State, in the US. Besides being fluent in Spanish and English, I speak Portuguese (C1) and French(B1).
I have been teaching online since 2018. Being a language learner myself, I know what the most common challenges are when learning a language and the most successful ways to overcome them.
In my opinion, the easiest and most memorable way of learning is having fun during the process. That is why I aim to provide you with a supportive, engaging and thought-provoking environment in which your oral production will take the lead role. Having said that, I am very flexible, and I will adjust my methods according to your specific needs and requirements. On every session, corrections made will be provided on a customized Google doc, so that you can always refer to it whenever you want to study and keep track of our lessons.
It will be my pleasure to help you to build up your confidence and fluency in Spanish. See you soon!

Are you looking for a Spanish tutor? You don’t need to search any further. Vanessa is the best. I was looking for a way to balance my book/app learning with speaking more Spanish. Vanessa is an excellent, patient and kind teacher, with a wonderful sense of humor. Her lessons are well organized and thoughtfully prepared before our meetings, allowing us to maximize the use of each hour for conversation and learning. During the lessons she quietly makes notes on a shared document that I subsequently use for reference. My only regret is that I didn’t start these lessons earlier.

Now in my second year, I enjoy the benefits of maintaining a steady learning schedule - with a caring and thoughtful teacher. Vanessa knows my strengths and weaknesses well and can enhance my learning. At every lesson, I pick up a good amount of vocabulary, which arises naturally as part of our discourse. And we have great fun going deeper into any given theme thanks to our mutual understanding of each other's background. I greatly recommend this long-term approach with an excellent teacher.

Vanessa, is such a pleasure to be tutored by, She is well prepared and intelligent. I have the most interesting and insightful conversations in Spanish with her. Her tutelage has encouraged me to think and speak in Spanish using new words, themes and concepts that stretch me. I feel I have fun while I am learning. Vanessa is also naturally funny, patient and professional. I highly recommend.
