About Vanessa

Qualified (QTS) and experienced Spanish tutor


A Spanish native tutor with a BA (Hons) in Journalism and QTS (PGCE). I can tailor the lesson to every level (children and adults).

My bachelor in Journalism together with years of experience as Spanish tutor, have provided me a good and deep knowledge in my language. I have also helped a charity which assists students with disadvantages backgrounds to get a place at top universities, as well as working in a languages school and, the well known, Instituto Cervantes. Moreover, I have been working for two years as a language assistant in a recently opened secondary school in Wood Green and in another one in Muswell Hill.

I can assure you will improve your Spanish, by using different resources such as: videos, games, worksheets, reading and grammar books, songs, study cards... I am very enthusiastic about teaching and I love using creative materials to engage students.

I can work in North London and Central London.

Reliable, enthusiastic and highly motivated

Written by F J
Vanessa was helping us out to improve our students' skills. She made the lessons so engaging that it was difficult for them not to participate or pay attention. I'd like to highlight she was a volunteer in a secondary school in North London.

A great Spanish teacher!

Vanessa is very experienced, patient and reliable teacher, who makes her Spanish lessons very engaging and interesting. She plans the lessons well and works around individual needs. I highly recommend her.
I attend Vanessa's lessons once a week and really enjoy them. I am learning lots.

Excellent Spanish Teacher

Written by Kushal T
Vanessa has played a crucial part in my personal and academic development in relation to learning Spanish. Vanessa has been extremely helpful to me and is always available to help. She is accessible in all forms: via email, skype, face-to-face etc...and I have developed my linguistic skills very quickly. In just 11 months, I have learnt how to communicate in a variety of contexts, much faster than in any School or University. I highly recommended her to anyone who wishes to learn in a productive but fun and exciting way. She is very organised and plans the lessons according to your individual needs and has access to multiple resources which plays a key part in her teaching method. This tailored approach is almost certainly guaranteed to work.
Learnt how to communicate, read and write Spanish at a conversational level in a very short tight frame. Initial progress was steep.

The best Spanish tutor out there!

Written by Jessica B
Vanessa helped me complete my AS Spanish exam this year. Her lessons were fun and I improved by a great amount in my Spanish speaking, as Vanessa is so warm and easy to talk to and learn with. Each lesson was well organised, thanks to her plentiful resources and in depth preparation.
Thanks to Vanessa I achieved an amazing result in my Spanish AS.

Spanish tutor

Written by Kishori S
Vanessa is a fantastic tutor. She was very patient with my slow grasping of some grammar, and provided really good exercises for me to do as homework. She explains complex structures very well, and gave me lots of confidence for my oncoming exam.
I passed the exam she helped me prepare for.

IGCSE tutor

Written by Jules Q
Vanessa tutored our daughter in the year before her IGCSE. Our daughter lacked confidence in the subject and I asked Vanessa to focus on conversation to build up confidence and to try to make the sessions fun. Vanessa was fantastic and we and our daughter found her to be invaluable. Our daughter got an A* in Spanish - that says it all. Vanessa really helped in getting that grade. She always came prepared with useful assignments and tasks that helped in preparation for the exam. I would highly recommend Vanessa.
A* and a very happy student and parents

Fantastic First Session

Written by Meryl G
