Hi! My name is Vanessa and I am a professional Spanish teacher. I am from Peru and I currently live in the United States. Besides speaking Spanish, I am fluent in English and Portuguese and I have an intermediate level in French. To me, learning and practicing a language goes beyond mastering communication: it is a way of embracing our world’s diversity.
I have been teaching Spanish and English online for over a year. In addition, I have experience teaching English in a classroom setting. They have been such gratifying experiences! . 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 my students with a supportive, engaging and thought-provoking environment in which their oral production will take the lead role. I use a variety of materials -such as news articles, audios, videos and pictures – and homework is provided upon request. Having said that, I am very flexible, and I will adjust my methods according to my students' specific needs and requirements. On every session, corrections made will be provided, so that students can always refer to them whenever they want to study and keep track of our lessons. I will provide a safe environment for my students to practice Spanish as well as build up their confidence and fluency.
